    6.5's that handle more than 100 RMS???

    does anybody have a recommendation. i have been looking. the kappa's (which i have 4 (6 x 8" that take my 110 RMS) but i might need to get some 6.5" for the front of my 1996 formula, because they might not fit all that well in the front doors.

    any ideas? i dont want to spend more than $150 on them if possible. ebay is definitely an option, but i will not buy used.

    DD - 1996 Firebird Formula. its on the way, so let the mods begin.

    RIP Mustang.

    if your looking at a comp set almost all will take 100rms+ daily, even if the spec says 60rms

    just get a decent amp, even a low line mtx/alpine/rockford will work fine

    I gave some CDTs 250rms that were rated at 100rms for about 5 months,then changed set up.

    Just be sure to set your cross over points




    CDT ES comp
    Eclipse EA4200 amp on highs
    TC Sounds LMS-r 12"
    nine.1

    hifinics zxi 4406. 110rms x 4.

    i am thinking of adding a second identical one so i can run 8 speakers.

    You shouldn't have a problem with anything rated from 80-120 watt rms, which most decent components are.

    and nobody cares what your sub is.
