    Powering Crystal SSCS6' - 220X2, or 150X2?

    Hi everyone! I was gone for a little while the last couple of weeks due to a death in my family, but now things are back to normal.


    On to my questions.....I will be buying a pair of Crystal SSCS6 components soon, and I have two amps to choose from to power them. I've got a JL Audio 450/4, which will do 150X2 RMS to the front stage, or I can use my Soundstream Reference 644S and leave it at the 110X4 RMS that is is in 4 channel mode, OR I can bridge the Soundstream so that it will be giving the Crystals 220X2 RMS bridged (and I would bridge channels 3 and 4 to my sub).

    I've got a single Alpine SWS-1222 12" sub in a sealed box that I would like to feed 200-300 RMS to, but I'm not sure if I will even be able to stand the Crystals at 220X2....that seems insanely loud.


    Anyone have a set of Crystals, or have recommendations regarding this setup?

    150 x2 is plenty ....I have heard of peeps running more power
    than that but unless your looking to make your ears bleed you should be
    satisfied w 150

    Thanks for the advice! I'm definitely not looking to have to buy Miracle Ear by the time I'm 40! I just want a fairly loud, but clean, powerful sound.

    So I think I'll hook up the JL to the Crystals, and just hold onto the Soundstream as a backup amp.
