    hertz hsk 165 help

    i have my hertz hsk 165 and they sound awesome and crystal clear. only issue that i have with them is that they are not loud enough. they get decent but not the way i want them. how loud are yours and did i make the wrong choice of speakers for loudness? maybe my amp isnt giving them enough power? i have a rf 8002 but im not sure if im getting enough power to them because i have a friend with o2 mids and tweeterspowered by a jl amp that is rated 150 rms per channel and his gets so much louder but mine has him on sq. and suggestions thoughts comments would be appreciated. also if i turn the gain up it starts to clip. thanks

    You might need to put more power to your speakers to make them louder. I had the HSK 165 powered by 2 Esoteric Audio E7152's. Yeah 600+ watts a piece might seem extreme but my speakers came alive with that configuration.

    Mine are fine also. I am running full active, 80w to mids and 50w to tweeters. They get plenty loud and I could get a little more out of them.
