    Final component speaker choice

    Thank you guys for all the help over the past few days, I appreciate it. Ive narrowed down my component speaker choice to Boston Acoustics Pro 60 or Rainbow SLC's. I want the loudest and clearest sound I can get. Also could you guys recommend me an amp for the choice you provide. Thank you very much again.

    honestly I dont want to spend to much on the amp I want decent quality though so, the best bang for my buck basically not top of the line.

    Re: Final component speaker choice

    Go with a 4 channel and biamp those Bostons. I'd suggest a Xenon X100.4, but those are dang near impossible to find at a reasonable price. How about the Infinity 7541a ($210) or the JBL GTO75.4II ($191)?

    If I went with the rainbows is the JBL GTO75.4 a good choice?

    I have a 5 channel Rockford Fosgate Amp. It does 50 x 4 @ 4 ohm and 100 x 4 @ 2 ohm and like 200 x 2 @ 4 ohm bridged. This is underated power

    how much power whould i get at 3 ohm if i use the boston set.

    3 ohms is fine if you are bi-amping them on a four channel.

    I like that JBL GTO75.4, solid amp.

    Probably close to 75w, which still isn't enough for those Bostons. They like lots of power.

    Re: Final component speaker choice

    Keep the gains low on the tweeter if you're bi-amping them, or be prepared to blow one (or two).

    The Pro's are very nice speakers, they get a bit harsh at very hi volumes because of the tweeter but they are crystal clear.

    Re: Final component speaker choice

    Why did you even bother with this thread? I'm not bashing at all but evey reply was more favorable toward the Bostons and you come back and say you think the Rainbows are a good choice? That just doesn't make much since.
