    Will this amp work with these subs

    What's up peeps. I'm new to this site and I'm pretty new to car audio. I think I'm gonna get these Pioneer TS-W300R subs. They are 600 Watts and I'm gonna get 2.


    The thing is, I don't know anything about amps. Is this amp powerful enough for these? Pioneer GM-5000T 760 Watt 2 channel with built in crossover.



    If this amp won't work does anybody have any other suggestions?

    Taking a look at the specifications...

    The TS-W300 sub is rated for 150w nominal, according to Pioneer. (Ignore the 600w peak rating; that's pretty much just marketing). It's a 4-ohm sub.

    The GM-5000T produces 125 watts per channel into a 4-ohm load. So if you hook up one sub to each channel, you'll have a fairly close match between amp and sub power.

    Just don't try to run the amp bridged to both subs, no matter what your friends say.

    If you don't bridge the amp, you will get more of a full-range stereo sound than acutal bass response. To answer your question, no. Those subs can only be wired at 8 ohm or 2 ohm, which wouldn't be practical with that amplifier. Look at some DVC subs with that amp, or a two ohm stable amp.
