    i blew a mid with 300 watt per side after a year or so. it still works, but midrange seems pretty ****ed up. give them around 150-200watt, headroom is always usefull

    150W is a good number. You will have good headroom.

    I'm in the same position as you. Currently waiting to get them in. I was looking at the Kenwood KAC-7204 just because I have its bigger model pushing my sub, but I'm not too sure on how efficient it is. I read that it is a good amp and just runs a little hot. I'll stay posted on your thread for some answers

    my friend works at sound warehouse and can hook me up with this amp for $150 http://www.woofersetc.com/p6084/T600...-Amplifier.htm

    Re: which amp to use with ctx65cs

    may be about to pick up these comps as well, was going to run them with a RF punch 201s (pretty old, i know) but i have been looking at amps as well, since i don't think 50w rms will be enough for them...

    Re: which amp to use with ctx65cs

    You honestly think that 100 x 2 Arc amp (although a very well made amp that makes over it's rated power) or the Cadence are going to trash a T600.2. I would bet on the Rockford in that deal.I know it will do over 200 X 2 at 4ohms-probably closer to 250 and do it all day long.I don't run Rockfords I have Zapco and Sundown but I put Rockfords in my daughters car because she also had a friend that worked at a big box and got them for less than half price warrantied.I was very impressed with them-much more so than I thought I would be going in.They seem to be holding up very well and she pretty much cranks it when she gets in the car and leaves it that way till she shuts it off.You should jump on that Rockford for that price.

    i ran a Sundown sax125.2 to my ctx65,worked fine. I would prefer the arc audio 300.2 in this case

    That Arc seems to be really nice deal, Arc and Zapco are both high end sq amps.

    100x2 Arc at that price you really can not go wrong.

    Re: which amp to use with ctx65cs

    k so this one then?
    http://www.woofersetc.com/p6856/FD-2...-Amplifier.htm

    again i dont know much. when they say the amp will put out 100rms. is that when the volume is up pretty high? or the gain? or does it always run 100rms to the speakers? Will the ctx65cs handle 100rms watts ok? i'm not to interested in blowing speakers/amps..
