    Powering Pro60's

    I'm looking into getting a pair of pro60's and was wondering what would be the best way to power them. I did a search and have read 150w to over 400 per speaker so now I'm confused. Can someone suggest some good 2 channel amps to use with these? I like to listen to my music loud now and then but nothing outrageously loud.

    More power = better sound. Figure out a budget and buy the most power you can within it.

    The Fox audiomobile now sounds more quality thanks to SDS power.

    The most expensive solution is the one that doesn't do the job correctly. ~ Me

    i think 400 is pushing it, from 200-300 is a decent number

    200 a side is a safe and effective range
