    Boston pro 60s and jl 450/4?

    Hi guys, i have a pair of the pro 60s i recently purchased to replace a pair of Infinity Kappas as my front stage. I still have Kappas in the rear (i like the sound of rear fill ) that i will also be running. For now ive been running the Pros and Kappas off a Rockford P450.4. It sounds great but i know the Bostons are vary power hungry. I made a deal with my local audio store to trade my Rockford and 400$ for a brand new 450/4 Jl audio (authorized dealer). My question is should i run the Bostons off the 150x2 front channel and the Kappas off the rear channel 75x2, or should i just power the Kappas off the HU and give the 75x2 to the Boston tweets I am going to install this today and i need help deciding what to do. I am still vary new to car audio and i want the best sounding setup. I have heard tweets dont need to much power to sound good so i am leaning towrds using the rear channel on the Kappas. Please give me your suggestion on this. Thanks for any help in advance,,,, Brian

    Well if you want your Kappas to be heard and sound good, you would prolly want to amp them

    actually if you run the kappas off of the hu and run the 75 x 2 on the tweets, you are actually losing power on your tweets . the only reason you'd want to run the 150 x 2 on the mids and 75 x 2 on the tweets is to bi-amp them in turn, you'll gain more over individual speakers.

    Thanks for the advice guys. I decided to power my Kappas in the rear doors with the 75x2. This Jl amp makes the Bostons sound incredible. They are so detailed and crisp. I only listend to the new setup for 20 min and my ears are still ringin from over an hour ago . I am so happy with the setup. With my 2 12inch Massive CWs in the back evrything blends togather so well. Thanks again
