Anyway, I spoke with a Crutchfield product person and he told me to choose a speaker with a low power hadndling rating. Like 2-100W, his reasoning is that the bose stuff uses 1-2 ohm speakers (i knew that) and these would be 4 ohm causing the power output to be lower from the amp. His work around was to get a speaker with a high efficency rating and rated for lower power ratings.
