    Warning I bought these for my Expedition and the Scorche plastic adapters dont work. They say they adapt 6x8 to 5 1/4 or 6.5 but the mids dont sit right. I had to cut out some adapter plates from left over plywood. Also the depth is really close to the window in my truck. The quarter inch raise was a good thing.

    just about anything that meets or comes close to the RMS ratings of the speakers. "a watt is a watt" as they say. look for something that has decent electronic filters built in if you arent getting crossovers. all the rest is personal preference. (warranty, styling, features, etc.)

    yea thats what i was thinking. i mean i can pick out an amp im not an idiot, but im not sure which brands overrate, underrate, or are spot on with their wattage ratings and which ones have good build quality. right now im thinking profile ca200 or the cl300 . anyone have any experience?

    nothing wrong with profile. excellent choice for the money. they are well built, put out their rated power, and are reliable. a couple guys on here have the California series amps. Im not too sure about the Baja series but they cant be much worse. Just avoid anything really lower end like Pyle, Legacy, Audiobahn (overpriced), Rockford Fosgate (IMHO)....just about anything that has RMS ratings you can pretty much trust those to be true, just make sure you know at what voltage input and frequency they are rated at. The new CEA-2006 rating system is a good sign that you can trust the power ratings of an amplifier. Just about all the major manuacturers have this certification. Its not perfect but its at least a decent guide.

    I've got an MTX Thunder6304 powering my CDTs and they sing beautifully. Got it off eBay brand new for a lil less than $100 U.S., and the birthsheet says 67 W x 4. This is my second MTX amp, I used to have a Thunder4244, and I recommend them highly. They usually underestimate their amps' wattage, BTW.
