    800 to 1500 would be a pretty good range for normal use.

    Worky bump.

    I hear you, it's a common concern with 4ohm drivers - fear of not being able to power it. FWIW, I currently I run a single sealed 10" 4ohm LMS, which is horribly innefficient, with only 600-800w and it is more than enough to come way out of balance with my Anarchy front stage and that is pretty powerful on it's own. This 12" with that same power and a vented enclosure would be gobs louder than my single sealed 10".

    This would do fine with as little as 500-600w as long as it was a larger vented alignment, output would be very respectable and would sound wonderful. But it would easily be able to take twice that and turn it into more output.
