    Need rear speakers to compliment this component set.

    I just bought a pair of Infinity Kappa 60.7cs components. These compnents can handle up to 90 watts RMS at 2-ohms. I bought a Diamond Audio D3 400.4 that powers these things at 88 watts RMS at 2-ohms.


    I am looking for some rear speakers that can also handle around 88 watts RMS at 2-ohms. I would like to spend no more than $70 if at all possible.


    Thanks for any advice.


    P.S. If I decided not to get rear speakers... could I use the two extra channels of this amp for something else, like to power the tweeters?

    Thanks.

    If you have a crossover that will cover the frequency division, yes you could use the second set of channels to biamp the comps you have in an active setup. The result would have the potential to sound better than the comps with their passives crossovers and will sound better than adding rear speakers.

    Ok, but I would need to purchase active crossovers correct? The ones that come with the set are passive.
