I had a pair of Silvers awhile back, my TFM-45 didn't seem to power them very well. I ended up with a 300x2 on them and while they sounded much better I could tell they were thirsty for a lot more.
I believe they're rated at 575 RMS so don't be afraid to juice them up!!
I was hitting my Silvers with a bridged TFM-55 on each channel, that REALLY made them come alive
My Lightstars worked good too!
Its going to be used equipment when I sell it, so it may as well be used equipment when I buy it.
