    how far can you push a w7?

    hey guys.... i just bought a w7 for my car and i want to figure out what amp i should get and how much i can push it. i really want to get a infinity 1211a (1400w rms at 2 ohm) for this sub (which is 3ohm) because it will give me lots of power incase i want to upgrade to a different sub later. what is the max you can push the w7? i know the rms is 750 but for example the mojo can do well over its rms.

    oh and the 1211a does 1000 watts rms at 4 ohms and 1400w at 2 ohms... what would it do at 3 ohms??..1200? or would it even work? if so... what is a good amp for around 300-350

    if its the 12 or 13W7 then you are fine otherwise id look at a different amp (if you have 8 or 10W7) the amp should do around 1100-1200 @ 3ohm and yes it will be completely fine

    It's not the subs that clip

    W7's can take well over their RMS.I've seen 13w7's take 2,000rms each daily with no real stress.

    It's enclosure dependent.
