Blown speaker..

Last fall I was on a glorious ride, awash in music, when ZZZZTT.
I'm running a Diamond micro4v2 (600 watts) bridged into a pair of Moto 602s. I probably have the gains set too high, although I couldn't hear any distortion. Also, I didn't run the HU at maximum volume.
I tested the speakers with a multimeter and only one showed any life. When I switched sides, the problem also switched sides. The stock speakers work. The amplifier powers up.
I would appreciate speaker recommendations from the knowledgeable folks here. I like the Moto 602s, but they take a lot of power. I'm open to trying something different.
I'm running a Freedom shield, so wind noise is a non issue. Thanks.

If you want to stick with coaxial, Beyma is being declared the top dog in that area, from guy that test a ton of speakers.

From what I read the 602 are rated at 90 wpc constant, 160 wpc max. You were running close to 300 wpc into them . Some times we forget to control that volume knob when we're out on the open highway . I don't think there are any 6.5 coaxial speakers that can handle that type of power.

When you hook up the next set , use a dvm to set the gain in line with the speakers ratings. Maybe even run four and spread that sound out a little bit.

2010 FLTRX , Stage 1, 13" Madstad, Mono tubes, SuperShox, Heritage style bars. Alpine CDE-HD149BT,Soundstream Picasso Nano Series PN4.520 , 5X7 and 6.5 Infinity Kappa speakers
If I have to explain ,you wouldn't under stand anyway.

Distortion kills speakers faster than anything you need to know when your head unity distorts at what volume level then you set your gains to that

Any more suggestions for compatible speakers, or should I stay with the 602s?

Have you set a budget yet? Knowing how much you want to spend would really help with the recommendations. Unfortunately you're not the first to cook a 602 speaker, so I'd say you might want to move on to something else.

The Beyma coax speakers are the bomb, but they are pricey. But then, so are a lot of the other options.

Thanks for the info. I have no problem moving on, I just need suggestions. I'm planning on staying with a 2 speaker system.
Ballpark budget is $300/pair, but I can spend more . What model Beyma would you suggest?
Any Hertz recommendations?
Thanks

Read that link. Alex has tried tons of speakers. If he says they are that good, they are. But like Wev said, pricey. Budget dictates suggestions.

I went over to the other forum and I think that the Beyma I need are $370 each!
I'm thinking about getting Hertz mille pro 165.3 .
Any thoughts on those would be appreciated.

I've currently got the same speakers paired with my Micro4v2. They are good speakers, good SQ and volume at the right gain and frequency settings. But I wouldn't say that my current system is worth the x2 I paid over the Kappa / Cerwin Vega combo I was running before. Just my humble opinion.

As noted previously, take a gander over at "the other forum" as there are lots of recommendations for fairing coax speakers only. You'll find some mainstream (like Hertz, Infinity etc.) and some audiophile grade stuff (like DD) that might fit nicely in your budget.
