    RMS wattage Kicker Comp 12's

    Hey guys I am fairly new to this board but I have a quick question for you guys. I have a pair of kicker comp 12 inch subs that are in a box and the impedance is 4 ohms. The sub specs are 150 Watts RMS to each sub. Would it be ok to run a 500 Watt RMS amplifier on these subs? How much can these actually take. I found a deal on a few amps and I would like to go a little more powerful in case I want to upgrade speakers later on down the road. Would the 500 do any damage to the subs?

    Thanks in advance.

    but be sure to stop if it starts sounding distorted. and turn it down just a bit. that way you dont over do it, and start clipping!
