    is 75w enough for the Diamond D661a?

    If i get a JL Audio 450/4 (150x2, 75x2), would 75w be enough for the Diamond D661a? Diamond's site rates them at 100w Nominal. i heard that JL underates their actuall watts.

    The wattage is pretty accurate on JL amps, you will be fine with 75 watts. The RMS is 100 on those comps and adding that extra 25 watts would not make much of a difference.

    75 watts rms will be just fine. The 100 watt nominal rating is the maximum suggested rms rating (although I'm sure they'll take more)
