    What comps should i get to go with my amp

    Looking for some good 2 way components suggestions.

    I have this Power Acoustik TS960 amp:

    http://cgi.ebay.com/Power-Acoustik-T...QQcmdZViewItem

    Specs say:
    100 watts RMS x 4 at 4 ohms (125 watts RMS x 4 at 2 ohms)
    250 watts RMS x 2 in bridged mode (4-ohm stable in bridged mode)
    Variable high-pass/low-pass crossover (40-250 Hz, 18 dB/octave)
    Variable bass boost (0-18 dB)
    Speaker- and preamp-level inputs
    Tri-way capable (Tri-Way Crossover required)
    Preamp outputs
    Fuse rating: 2 x 25A
    Requires 8-gauge power and ground leads with a 60-amp fuse ý wiring and hardware not included with amplifier

    I'll be bridging it to get to 250 x 2 @ 4 ohms.

    What do you think the actual power output of this amp would be, bridged X 2 @ 4 ohms?

    And what speakers would you guys suggest that are able to handle that power.
    Ive been thinking about Rainbow SLC265's, Boston Pro60's DLS up6's, & CDT HD-62's

    If it fits your budget....for about $170ish, get the Crystal SSCS6 comps. They'll love that kind of power.

    250.00 sounds about right. Most of the speakers i mentioned in the original post are around that price and they all seem like good quality, i just dont know if they handle that kind of power. I'd rather not fry anything if possible.

    I could go up to 325 - 350.00 if there is something out there thats gonna make me much happier than the 250.00 range i guess. But it has to be undoubtedly better.

    thanks for the tip, im probably gonna order some of these in the next 2 days unless i find something better. hard to beat these for the price. I just wish i could find more detailed specs to make my decision easier

    You sure that Power Acoustik 250x2 @ 4 ohms wont destroy the speakers??

    Here's the spec sheet from Crystal. Grossly misrepresented, from what I've read. Do a quick search in the speaker subforum for posts from Kicker06.

    Here's the thread he started when he first got his set, and here's the one after the install.

    Another good recommendation. But I'd go with the SLC265 Kicks with a flexible budget, though.
