    Getting some comps need advice

    Getting some 6.5 comps for my fronts (not going to connect rears)

    I have a kicker kx 150.2 so that should be able to do about 100 watts x2 at 2 ohm.

    Any advice? Id like them to be under $150. Are PGs my best bet?

    Re: Getting some comps need advice

    hmm do they only make them at a 4 ohm Impedance?

    My amp does 75 x 2 (probably a little more) at 2 ohm

    Re: Getting some comps need advice

    Correct, those are them.

    The Pio's I mentioned are the TS-D1720C (exact same as the TS-D720C, minus the Premier moniker).

    Nope, no 2 ohm variants. What amp do you have?

    Re: Getting some comps need advice

    Should be able to do about 2x70w rms at 4 Ohms according to the birthsheet, right?

    The Pioneers work very well off that kind of power on up to about 2x130-150w rms.

    If you want good 2 ohm comps, the Image Dynamics CXS62 comes to mind, but they run about $360. but even then, they'll be happier with about 2x120-180w rms than 2x75.

    Re: Getting some comps need advice

    Actually my amp should do about 90 watts at 4 ohm so ill stick with 4 ohm speakers. Should I go with those PGS?

    Yeah, the RSd's or the TS-D's. Flip a coin.

    Are PGs actually good or are they just "good" cause they are 80 bucks.
