    What kind of music do you listen to and what characteristics are you wanting from the speakers?

    with that price range you have many options.

    what are your goals for sound from the comps?
    2 way or 3 way?
    what size?

    You might look for a set of PG rsd 6.5 comps for around 90 bucks shipped on e bay and for the amp look for something in the 100-150 x 2 range

    RSd65cs or TS-C720PRS on a clean 2x150w rms. Would do you nicely, imo. The Alpine PDX-2.150 would be a great choice.

    [edit] or the PG X200.2

    Awesome, to put it simply. I've auditioned them countless times now and want to get a set myself. They sound spectacular on 2x75w rms. Give them 2x100-150w rms and they will make love to your ears.

    Check out this review. Keep in mind it's written by a hardcore audiophile.

    i got my PG RSD's for $87, and my Kicker ZX550.2 for $230. so $317 for both. you would be fine with a ZX450.2 though. i went a lil overkill when i decided on the amp(i wanted a lil extra headroom).

    I have the 720prs set on a ppi pc2100 and they sound fantastic. I do have my doors deadened and never did try them without the deadening. For the price though they sound great. I would think about a nice 4 channel for them, in case you want to go active in future. I heard they even sound better active because the crossover is the weak link in the set

    I agree with you. A decent 4x60-75w rms amp and an active XO might make a heck of a difference. c_j thought so.
