The proper amplifier for the Kicker KM6500.2 Tower Components will be a stereo power amplifier like the ZXM450.2 marine amplifier.
Unfortunately, an active crossover would not do much to counteract that sound that so many folks complain about with the HLCD product out there to date. That "horn" sound is a result of horn geometry, not the crossover; .going active with the crossover won't do much to counteract it. To get rid of that "horn" sound, you typically have to change the horn geometry to something with a constantly changing flare rate; something that cannot support standing wave resonance.
