    ok, need some assistance

    Ok, so I am still kind of getting the hang of Ohms and all of that crap. Anyway, I thought I'd hit you guys up since you likely know your stuff.

    Amp details: Boss CX550 Chaos Exxtreme 800 Watts 2-Channel MOSFET Power Amplifier
    MAX POWER, 2 OHM 400w x 2; RMS POWER, 4 OHM 125w x 2; MAX BRIDGED POWER, 4 OHM 800w x 1
    SIGNAL-TO-NOISE RATIO 102 dB; THD 0.01%
    DIMENSIONS: 11-7/8-InchW x 2-5/8-InchH x 12-3/16-InchL
    Trimode operation; Bridgeable; Remote subwoofer level control; Line and speaker level inputs; Variable gain control
    Power and protection LEDs; Variable lowpass and High pass crossovers; 0-+18dB variable bass boost; MOSFET power supply

    Sub details: Kicker CompVR 07CVR102 10-Inch 2-Ohm DVC Subwoofer
    10-inch CompVR Subwoofer with 2-ohm impedance
    Injection-molded cone with 360-degree back bracing and aluminized coating; ribbed Santoprene surround
    400 Watts RMS (800 Watts peak) power handling
    25-500 Hz frequency response
    One-year limited warranty

    So do you think it'll work? If not then could you find some replacements for me please? Thanks in advance. I actually don't think that amp will work, I believe I'll need a 800 watt amp that does 400X2 at 4 ohms right?

    Re: ok, need some assistance

    something you need to consider is the box. It is more important than the sub or amp.

    Re: ok, need some assistance

    I know it's important, however I must know what sub I want and therefore leading me to find the correct amp to power it before I can know dimensions my box must be.

    Re: ok, need some assistance

    The only thing you will get it if you rush into this is a expensive

    I only see 2 options if you are set on doing it with 300

    1. Get on EBay and other sites with used gear. The stuff on here is probably too high end for your budget. But I have seen
    2 12 inch kicker's as well as Alpine's in boxes with amps included for 250-300

    2. Buy the JL w3 amp which is about a 100 and is the best sub in its price range easily. Also buy the box, do A Lot of research on it because its the most
    Important aspect to how good the system will sound. Have some patience and get the amo next paycheck
