    Orion XTR 10s power requirements

    i am looking for a budget conscious setup that will have decent SQ. i don't care about SPL.

    i had an Orion XTR 10s that i sold and i was feeding it 250rms. it sounded great and fit my application perfectly. i sold it a year ago along with the amp i powered it with. now, i'm looking to have a decent setup again, and i want to go with the XTR again because i had a very good experience with it.

    now i have an amp that pushes 300x1 rms at 4ohms. granted, it's only 50watts more rms, but is that enough to damage to the XTR? it's rated max 250rms.

    NO Way

    50 isnt going to hurt it at all. With 300rms you might wanna look into Alpine Type R's 10" and 12" run off of 300rms and are 4 ohm subs. They pound out the SQ and have very decent SPL. I'm not sure about your budget but you can find them off online car audio places all over. But 50 should hurt at all. I've run my 300rms sub at 450rms for 6 months and it didnt hurt it.

    well, to be honest, the 4ohm type R don't impress me with only 85db sens. it's DVC too. can i run only one coil on the type R with 300rms?

    the orion has 92db sens. i've found the orion new for $85 shipped, so it has a price advantage too.

    Each coil

    Each coil is 150rms. I would risk running double on each coil that could stress it way too much. Well sounds like Orion is the way to go thats what I would do dont worry about just 50 watts.

    I have three Orion XTRPRO 10D's (now out of production) in one of my vehicles on a JBL bp1200.1. I previously ran them on a Profile CL1200, which was probably delivering about 250W RMS apiece. It wasn't exactly quiet, to say the least, but I had wondered if I was truly turning the subs loose. The JBL bp1200.1 answered the question for me, since it can juice at a 2 ohm load, with amazing performance from the Orion's.

    Still, they are geared a bit more towards SPL than SQ, but I don't really have a complaint in either department.

    wow, this brings back memories of my Orion XTR 10"
    it was my first sub.

    yes it will handle the 300W rms with ease
    I had mine running off a RF 300s, which was tested at 316w rms.
    I really abused that sub, turned bass knob all the way up, and it is still in very good condition and sounding great.
    I sold it to a guy

    for a single 10" i was really impressed, many ppl thought it was a 12"



    why run with the crowd ?
