    How much power can a JL 12W6v2 take?

    I am looking at a 12W6v2 which is a D4ohm (400watts rms). I have a JBL 1200.1 that sends around 1200watts at 2 ohms and who knows at 8 ohms. So my question is can i run this sub with this amp by adjusting the gains or should i look at another sub? I also am looking at an IDMAX 12v3D2. Would the MAX be better suited for my amp?

    Thanks-Colin

    you will be fine with that amp, alot of people run the JL 1000/1 on the 12w6 and its fine, just watch your gain settings

    you can set the gain so to push what you need, if that is what you are asking. Just because you have a 1200 watt amp, doesnt mean you have to use all the power .
