Installed Boston Acoustics SL80 speakers.

All I can say is"Holy Cow" . These are awesome in the front. I did run into a small problem though. The mounting plate, one hole dosn't line up correctly, so I drilled a new hole for each speaker. Other then that, its amazing.

Also, to get the full effect of these, sould I select on my RF amp, high pass, all(or i think it said full pass) pass, or low pass? I had it on high pass for the rf's.
