Do I get a more powerful Amp or less powerful?

I’m contemplating a Dual 4 ohm Voice Coil 400 watt RMS 12” Phoenix sub.

Do I use a 300 Watt 2 ohm amp or a 500 Watt 2 ohm amp? Or is this just “half a dozen of one and six of another?”

Is this for the Jeep? If yes, did the JL setup already lose it's shine?
It is for the Jeep. I’m loving the JL Audio Stealth Box. I’m just a bass junkie. 😂 I was going to add a 15” Square Kicker sub, but didn’t want to lose the cargo space. The 12” sub mounts to the tailgate and keeps it out of the way.

So, are you adding an extra subwoofer. Different brand, size, box size with a different alignment.

Not all frequencies are going to be reproduced at the same time with the same intensity. This will cause destructive interference.

You're going to have a system that sounds really bad with some songs, and does ok with others.

I never thought about this. 😞
