    LIGHNING AUDIO S2.500 would be the best amp to push any thing. I've pushed 2 jbl 12's, two solo baric 12's rounds, two polk ex series 2 12's, and now two kisker vrcomp 10's. the life of my amp one hell of an amp

    Well to answer your question, you need to pay attention to RMS not really peak. You want to give the sub the rms rating, maybe a LITTLE under or over.

    To continue<br />It is possible to over power the sub a little more in a sealed box. But if you port the box, you really should stick to the rms number.

    The Memphis Bass Class D mono-block subwofer amps are the best.... I'm pushing a single 12 kicker solo-baric L7 and got a 137 db's without trying.
