boston pro60 and amp recommendations

All,
I`m powering my pro 60 with the boston gt20 with fiull range settings. The sound is crisp and clear but I feel they are lacking bass punch. The amp rating is 45 W RMS and the speakers are 125 W RMS. My G210 woofer powered by an alpine MRP-M450 is making up for the punch but when I turn off the sub, there is a definite lack of bass punch from the pro 60`s. I was thinking of installing an alpine F250 bridged to punch out 100W RMS.

any suggestions welcome.

From what I read on forums, these speakers do require a god amount of power. If I had them, I would not hesitate to run 175 wrms/channel to them. Also, look into dynamating the doors, as it makes a massive difference in output potential.

I agree with Sasha, I would look at closer to 200 watts rms to get them moving.

woofers mounted in the door and tweeters in the dash. As I suspectted from the replies, it may be a power issue and the GT20 is underpowering the pro`s.


regards to all.
