That 10W7 will slam! You will definitely want to dampen the rear hatch. I had one 10w6 being pushed by my 600.1 and it was impressive.

its going to be retarded loud unless you just turn the gain down on the amp... W7s are no joke

the only issue i can see would be the depth of the woofer and the wiring because tweeters are on the dash and woofers in the doors, might be a pain with the crossovers for install. looks like those are only 100 rms anyway, i wouldnt play around w the wattages on JL amps they are under rated as it is

Agreed. Putting a lot of money into speakers and good amps you don't need to overpower them.

These will fit and had good reviews. I got them from an authorized dealer for a little over half woofersetc prices.

The depth is an issue, and the wiring can always be lengthened. As far as power goes, even if the amp is underrated, depending on the freq xover level and the amount of gain on the amp and blah blah blah... the speakers can take it IF you do it the right way.
