    how many watts do you have into your JL 12w3v2??

    Just curious at how many watts rms you guys are running in these subs? sealed box?

    is 300 watts rms too "little" since I know these subs are power hungry.

    I am looking at either a soundstream amp that gives 300 watts rms into each sub OR another soundstream amp giving 440 watts rms into each sub. in a sealed box also.

    any opinions or suggestions?

    300 is plenty to make them loud. 400 or so to reach their full potential. That is what i have ran to them in the past. I have also done a setup with 4 12w3v2s on a KX1200.1. 300wrms to each and it was LOUD.
