    I doubt that your HU amp will put out as much as your subs is rated at. But that's just my opinion.

    i would think that it would mess up your head unit...if your HU only puts out around 20w RMS and your subs could get 200w rms...

    Umm I guess if you want to send your subs 15watts
    You will probly end up severly clipping your amp wanting more power which it can give you. I'd wait for a real amp, but I guess you *could* do it.

    Re: running subs from a cd player

    On some Pioneers you can bridge the rear channels to a sub and run something like... 30 watts... (DEH-P760MP says 70x1 max)

    I still don't think it would be worth it, but it might be OK with a really efficient sub.

    I ran my RE8s in my doors after I sold my amp, for like 15min. They sounded ghetto-ized *******. Was funny.

    As long as you don't clip the hell out of the HU's internal amp, I don't see why it would hurt anything.

    I'd be worried about high end noise trying to get that woofer to move faster than it's supposed to.
