LOUDEST components, LOTS of power

I'm looking for a set of components that can take 300 plus watts per channel, and get sick-loud without distorting.
I know SQ is subjective, but SPL is not, so I feel that this is an appropriate question.

Boston Pro series comes to mind as a component set that gets ungodly loud, and will probably take 300 plus watts per channel, although I would be careful with the gains. (you are talking about 300 watts RMS, right?)

I assume you are into competitions, right? Otherwise, what use would 300watts be to you on a single set of components. As for tweeters, no way, horns are what you will be looking for. Wouldn't it be easier to gain more decibels by adding more speakers than it would with that wattage?

tweeter wise I think the only one that can get close is a Scan Speak 9300-9900 series, which are rated at 200-225 rms each.

mid wise 300 rms is alot and I doubt anything can take that kind of power continous but maybe music.

DDW6.5 , Morel , ND-6 and a select few might hold up.

Orion HCCA's get really loud. I don't think they could take 300 per side though, more in the range of 150-200

re: tweeters

Use prosound compression horn tweeters (hehe), (or those custom under dash mount horns) which some hardcore
people use....

I'd bet the HCCA's could take about 250, I knew this guy who had a HCCA225G4 on each each side. They were really loud but he was kinda dumb and left them in the doors so they could have sounded better... I vote for the HCCA 6's

just because speakers are in the doors does not mean you're messing up the SQ...

no, actually, im not into competitions. i just like really loud music. and i mean music, not bass. none of the components that i have ever heard (which includes many decent sets, mb q q's, my jl xr's, boston pros <these sounded underpowered>, etc) can get loud enough for me without distorting. am i just a ****in wierdo? i consider myself a SQ person, not a SPL person. i just like my SQ really loud. i know that sounds retarded. im not into huge bass, my single shiva can produce more bass than i ever use, and i dont like harshly loud highs. i just like warm, rich, LOUD midbass-midrange.
my jl xr 6.5's off of 160 rms x 2 sound great up to a certain point (like 35 on my head unit), which is decently loud, but not quite loud enough. if they could only make it to 40 without sounding like poopie.

I'd say there's a good chance that your HU is clipping once it goes over 35 out of 40.

Want loud midbass, I'd say DD, SEAS, Scanspeak, Dynaudio, and Morel for speakers that take a lot of power and that you can x-over pretty low.

For loud highs, not going to beat horns with any tweeter.
