Re: help... questions that bugged me for a long long time
I thought 500W would be cleaner, and the ohms will play only a small role.

any one has opinions on these two issues?
1. A sub, 2Ohm, powered by an amp that plays 500W @ 2ohm should sound the same as a 4ohm sub powered by an amp that do 200W @ 4Ohm right?
2. Which of these config would break? pumping 500W clean rms into a sub that handles 800W rms, vs pumping 500W clean rms into a sub that handles 200W rms... that question of under / over powering subs... most sales i met told me underpowering breaks your sub... but that's kinda doesn't make sense to me...
thanks for your help!
ANd underpowering is not so bad..I've done it for 7 years and my subs are still pumping fine... overpowering will allow you to smell what the VC's are made for.
