So why not sell the speakers to fund something actually meant for a car ?

That's a good question I'm leaning that way now

The tower speakers sound so nice I just wanted to try it. I have an alpine amp that would run 1200 watts to four of them.

What model are the Klipsch speakers?  Main thing is, those drivers are designed around the cabinets, crossover frequency, etc., and moving them to a mobile application might "work" but it would be far from optimum versus using a good JL Audio sub or other brand of car audio.

Used dozens of these with great success.

 

Dayton 12"

 

Box suited for them.

 

If you need an amplifier i suggest US Acoustics, have had great luck with them in the past.

 

Options are endless, just a recommendation based on my experience.

That's nice stuff but I get 10% over cost on alpine, kicker, and memphis.

Can't recall the model right now but they're 3600 a pair retail for new ones. I also have the dual 12 sub so they're probably designed to run with that.

Had many Alpine head units back in the day, no Alpine speakers though.

Kicker used to make excellent amps but haven't had any lately
