Most powerful 5.25 coaxials out there?

Anyone know of a pair of 5.25 coaxials that can handle more than 100W RMS?
Preferably less than 2.25" mounting depth.
Would prefer 2 ohms, but 4 is fine too.

What model? I've looked into Infinity on their website thinking that they had something too, but can't find anything that powerful.

Kappa - 55RMS
Reference - 45RMS

on the sound board i run 120ish watts rms to the kappas and the ref coax and they take it no prob. just set the gains on the amp properly and you should be fine

rockford fosgate power series 5.25 coaxial takes 60rms

cdt 5.25 coaxials and components take anywhere from 60-90rms

Right now I have the Kicker KS60 rated at 60W RMS.

I've been looking at the Alpine 5.25" SPR-13C rated at 90W RMS. They're the most powerful I've seen so far, but I'm hoping somebody has seen something else.

I originally wanted to get the 6 1/2" SPR-17C at 100W RMS but they're too big for the existing cutouts, and too deep so the window won't go down all the way.

I have the RF Power series 6x9s on my rear deck, and I think I have blown one of the tweeters on them with 100W RMS, so I won't be going with RF again.

As for the other suggestions, they match my existing power level.

I'm looking for something that can take more excursion and put out more bass than the Kickers I have now, and have a more powerful tweeter that can handle the high power being poured into the driver.

if your going to go that route, i'm going to suggest some pro audio brands like selenium, DLS, and others. you can find them on www.partsexpress.com

Morel speakers handle a lot of power and sound amazing..even their pulse "low end" co-axials handle 110 watts and 250 watts music power in a 5.25". here's the link:

Hybrid Audio Clarus C51-2: 90 watts (musical input)
“Musical input” means power handling with respect to listening to full-range music, not high-amplitude test tones or musical material with excessively low frequency and/or high amplitude bass tones.
They're 4ohm though.
MSRP is $577.99 +tax
