    DD 500a series 12

    just got this subwoofer and found a really good deal on a pioneer amp that does 250watts rms at 4 ohm...... the sub does 300rms at 4 ohm....do you guys think that it will be ok and sound fine with this amp? it does 800watts max

    A sub doesn't do power, it receives it.



    I would be a procrastinator, but I keep putting it off.

    Not familliar with the sub, but if the ratings you provided for the sub and amp are accurate then it should work fine. Just don't try to max out the gain/BB to try to compensate for the lack of power.

    Let me get ahold of a W7, I bet I could smoke it in 30 seconds or less

    Why such a downgrade? You may not be satisfied with the setup you are considering.

    the 500's will not come close to a w7 in any respect but they should take twice their rated power. i had a 10w7 that did very will in the setup i had it in and it took around 1100 rms daily. if you want somthing to throw some power to, try a 2500(good for 1k+daily) or a 3500(good for 2k+daily) i had a 2510 on 1k for a while and was very impressed with that one.

    lucky you
    imo, to get the most out of it with the power you have, stick that mofo in a bandpass and call it a day.
