Impedance: 4 Ohms

Crossover Frequency(ies): 3.5kHz, 24dB/oct

Mounting Depth: 2-3/4" Perfect Mid-woofer, 1" Perfect tweeter

2nd Option would be

Power range: 10-125 watts RMS

Peak power handling: 250 watts

Id say infinity, and get infiniti amp the matches that setup, check crutchfield or ask at reputable system dealer. Always better when everything is same brand, they make things so they are "tuned" for eachother.

I'm partial to Kicker myself. They rate their amps at RMS, not max.

Kappas are a bit overkill in my opinion. I run the Reference and those blow away anything else I have heard for the price.

Ditto on the Kappa - I love mine even with my stock head unit. I don't have the Kappa Perfect, however - just the regular Kappa'*. You may need to add power for the Perfects, but I could be wrong. I understand Polk is supposed to be good, but I don't have any personal experience with them.

Had some Polk in the front of my Yukon, 4x6'*, not componant style just regular. They sounded alright. Didnt last long for the money though. I didnt have em amped or anything and just a 55watt pioneer head.
