    CDT DRT-25 Tweeters, rms?

    i have a set of DRT-25's and HD-6 Mids, i plan on running them active of an orion 8004 (100watts x 4) im curious, would the DRT-25's be able to handle 100watts rms? how should i set the gains to prevent them from being blow by overpowering?

    NO they wont handle 100rms each.

    Set the gain for 25 watts. That will be plenty. Use the gain setting tutorial in the amp section for help in setting it. Your formula for 25rms is sqrt(25x4)=10v to each channel.
