Appropriate base for 2-x-2 ft pavers

I recently acquired some large pavers from a contractor friend -- They're 24-x-24 in, rebar reinforced, ~6" thick, and weigh about 165 lbs each.

I was wondering what an appropriate base would be for such large and heavy pavers. I've installed patios before but never with concrete slabs like this -- Is it necessary to adjust the depth of crushed limestone and sand? Is there anything else to take into account?

The soil is relatively compact clay loam in an old, urban neighborhood.
