Re: Wiring 12w3 with PPI amp
Actually it should put out 266 watts. The sub will be fine.

Keep the gain set conservatively to limit the current if you are nervous about it.
2) The other thing is that much of a load to put on the amp. I have heard great things about PPI being very stable amps and could even handle a short for a couple of seconds. But the reason i am asking is because i was using this amp about 2 yrs ago to run 2 JL12w3's and the amp stopped working. It blew some output IC's and some power supply IC's. So i dont know if it was because of the subs, but i doubt that.
