    zapco ref-350 or look into arc audio or even tru or mcintosh if you got the money. i wouldn't pair those speakers with anything but the best. my utopia's are gonna be paired with the zapco ref-350. good luck.

    you don't need rear fill, it won't help the sq. just go with a front stage.

    no need for any other speakers than the Utopias u will be using up front. For amps just find something that will put out 100x2 at 4 ohms. If ur controlling the Xover from ur head unit then u wont notice a difference between a hifonics amp or a zapco amp. What kind of price are u looking at? and what kind of RE's are u getting, cuz u get grab a nice 4 channel amp and run everything off that.

    yea i understand, your fine. just you know, try to be a little patient. as far as your setup, the 2 XXX's will not drown your vocals especially if you go with the utopia's. i have a set, the 136W 5.25'', coming to me on wednesday i'll hopefully have them installed by saturday. i'm hoping for great things from these speakers.

    I have been really pleased with my US Amps TU-600. You really do have a ton of options.
