First of all, these are not automobile speakers. They are used in home hi-fidelity instillations. they are quite large. They would barely fit in the trunk of my car, a standard, four door family sedan.
Next, why would I abandon my request/question when it has not been answered but I have been charged for it? If you can't answer the question, say so and refund my money.

Hi, I'm Nathan.
Sorry to hear that you're having trouble, but I'll do my best to help you. Please give me a few moments to review your details here.

What is your intended use of the speakers? Primarily for listening to music? Or as part of a home theater system and possibly the desire to add more speakers for a surround sound setup as well?

Primarily for listening to music.
Electronics Technician: Nathan, Engineer replied 25 days ago

Thanks,

the power handling of the century speakers are 10-300. Ideally they are designed for 50w continuous power,

but rating specs for modern amps are typically quite skewed, so I'd target an amp rated in the 100-150w range.

Something like this would be a good starting point for a basic receiver type system (with built in radio and multiple inputs): https://amzn.to/2GYITdb or (higher end): https://amzn.to/2GXtfyD

If you have a receiver or other components already and just need an amp: https://amzn.to/2GZ74Ia

Best regards,

Nathan
