    What do you think of Alpine Type-S 5.25 inchers?

    I just bought some 5.25 in Type-S's, but I didn't realize until now that they can only handle 30 watts RMS. How big of an amp can I add before I should be worried about blowing these?

    I know It's probably a basic question, but I really need some advice, as I need to decide whether to install them tomorrow morning or holdoff for something else.

    they are decent speakers, sound pretty good with some power behind them. i've used a 40 x 2wrms amp, on 15wrms 4" speakers before. power does not kill, it's the clipping that causes distortion that kills.
