    2 ohm 2 way componates

    I've been eyeing these up for months, they don't seem to be the greatest 2 way componates but 2 ohm, the only other 2 ohm 2 peice sets ive found were from jbl or focal.
    Infinity 60.9cs (609cs) - 6-1/2" Component Systems - Sonic Electronix

    what do you guys think? and does anyone know what they can handle, the amp im looking at is this puppy.
    Infinity Kappa Four 4 Channel Amplifier

    Stay clear from Kappas unless you crave extremely harsh tweets. I used to like bright highs, but Kappas give a new meaning to harshness.

    JBL or Focal would be much better. Why are you set on 2 ohm?

    Com-po-nates.

So to start a thread simply to state that clipping does not hurt speakers is, again, a half-truth at best.

    well of course focal would be better XD i mean sht there 600$ a set haha fo course they'll be epix.


    I have heard the kappa's and thoght the same thing, I mean I really love sharp bright, I always lean on highs when i tune my system :| but yeah i had the same thought when i heard them, "man I think i could really get annoyed by those".

    I've never heard the JBL's. their the same exact price, so it really makes no difference between those two, but the 2 ohm focals are way out of range for my budget


    so as far as power, you think these speakers can handle this amp? i mean its rated at 150 at 2 ohms, but the peak on either the jbl's is and infiniti's are well over 200 watts. so I should be safe, just talking about a much shorter life span, like that guy with the quote above, just more heat. :| so is that something to be considered when wiring my comonates?

    also, another thing i'm wondeirng is, the external cross overs, is that wiring the pieces in parallel, so would that make it 1 ohm at rating to the amp like a sub would? also, what kind of wattage can the tweeter handle, I imagine this "clipping" they speak of is some kind of jump down for the tweeters?

    those do look nice acutely, found a set for under 300$ :| little easier to swallow 300$ a pair as aposed to 600$ for the focals :P
