Is 500wrms enough for a Kicker L5 12"?
I just ordered my first square. I got the Kicker L5 12 because I got a killer deal on it. I plan on making my own box, prolly 1.0 cubes sealed. How much power do you think I need to run this bad dog. I plan on ordering another one as soon as the money permits. I got the 2ohm DVC version because I just ordered a Visonik V500HC 4-channel amp. It will do 500X2 @ 1ohm stable. So I figure run one L5 off each "amp" (1 driver per 2 channels). Do you think 500wrms is enough for the L5? I've heard some people burning theirs up from too much power so I figured playin it a bit safe couldn't hurt. Besides, I've heard 2 Kicker 10" L5's running off 400wrms total and they sounded **** good in an S10. Well anyways, just wanted to get some opinions.
