So i've finally got myself a sub/amp for the Shed.
Sub is a Kicker Comp C12, and Amp is a Pioneer GM-X962 both baught from ebay.
I've just unboxed the sub tonight to have a look at it, and it has a big yellow sticker on it saying:
"Warning! Maximum Amplifier Power for this subwoofer is 150 Watts. Exceeding this rating may damage the subwoofer and void your warranty"
Looking at the amp datasheet, it puts out 760W "Peak" power and 380w RMS when bridged into a 4ohm load.
The amp isnt particularly huge, but its clearly waay in excess of the power rating for the speaker. I've never seen a subwoofer with such a low peak power handling before, the cheap Pioneer sub in the Avant (TS-W305c) is rated to 400wRMS.
Am i going to blow this thing to bits?
