    [font=Verdana, Arial, Helvetica, sans-serif]Description: 3-way System: 6.5-inch (160 mm) Woofer; 4-inch (100 mm) Treated Pulp Cone Midrange and 1-inch (25 mm) Aluminum Dome Tweeter, Grilles Included
    Power Handling: 70W Continuous
    Recommended Amp Power: 25 - 150 Watts
    Efficiency: 90.5 dB @ 1W/1m
    Frequency Response: 48 Hz - 25 KHz ± 3 dB

    The crossovers have 1 input, 3 output, so I'm assuming I would need to get an external amplifier for them since I dont think you can bridge speaker outputs on a headunit, and if I did use the headunit, its like 22 watts rms. Something, 2 channels, up to 150 watts each? or is 75 watts the max rms i should put into it? I saw a lil amp in the thread or 2 down (monitor 1 or something) is that like what I would need?

    Damn this stuff to hell, it confuses me. why cant everything just be simple :big grin: I refuse to pay people to do this, i know i can install it when I figure out what I need. :hsd:

    Yeah that Monitor amplifier would work great with those JL speakers.

    Those 3 way XRs open up when you put good power to them...like 100-150 rms will make them sing. My suggestion for that set up is a JL 300/2.

    Definitely the monitor 1 amp. Fantastic piece

    I bought myself an Avionixx 800.2 ([email protected]) for my front components.
    Going to be beastly, but my comps are 200RMS haha
