    Doubt it. Maaaaybe a 3-way component set. You'd be better off splitting it between two sets.

    Re: Components that can handle 400 rms?

    Yes i know,but its to much of a hussle. Making door boards,putting another speaker wire instalation (i could barely fit this one) getting another amp that is rated the same power,or getting a new 4ch amp that is very good.. Bla bla bla.. It goes on and on..


    What about 300 rms? =)

    This JBL'a are rated 600w max and 150 rms

    But if max is 600,i think they could just take those 300,and i bet they would sound GREAT at that power

    That's a little too much for the PRO60's, I think. A more realistic number would be 200-250w MAX RMS per side running passive.

    If you want a component set that can handle that kind of power, get the Rainbow Powerline CS 2 way component system with the 7" woofer. It'll cost ya, but you'll not need to buy speakers anymore for your car for a long time once you put those in, anyways.

    Here they are on Ebay, brand new, and pretty much full retail price...

    http://cgi.ebay.com/RAINBOW-CS-275-2...3A1%7C294%3A50

    If you're really interested in picking up a set of these, send a private message to 6spdcoupe on the forum here, he's an authorized Rainbow dealer here in the States. He'll give you better prices AND better service than you could find anywhere in the internet.

    If you budget is at the $300 mark, I'd go with the Boston PRO60SE's. I just sold mine after running them for a month, and they got crazy loud, and sounded great doing it. Those can be bought BNIB for right around $300 or so.

    LOL Yeah that's some serious bread for speakers, but they'll keep you moist when you're taking that long drive, that's for sure.

    Check Ebay for the Boston PRO60 SE's. I believe a few seller on there ship worldwide, especially to Europe.

    My Boston AcousticS Pro60's are rated at 150 wrms and will gladly take more. They're for sale for about $200

    Every speaker can handle more that rated. Everything in life that is rated something can handle more.

    If your food has a best before that lasts 3 yrs,it could easily be besto before 3.5 yrs.. 4yrs..


    When u r checking oil.. On the max.. Be sure u can poor more oil.. Or when u r on the minimum.. Be sure your engine will not die if u have 100-200-300 grams of oil less..

    And the story goes on..


    Rated power is for the people who like to play safe.. Have one set of speakers for 10 yrs,and be setisfied..

    Always give more juice than rated. Always! =)
