    Chaps

    With a change of car (E class to A3) and circumstance (Baby so need all the boot space)

    I have a 15" in a 2.25cft enclosure that needs to go..

    I have a RE8 8" which is 175wrms at 4ohm. My Amp is 300wrms at 4ohm. Which I will build into the side giving me the full boot.
    Can I use my amp and just tune down the power? Or will I blow the sub the first time my favourite song comes on!

    Cheers

    No you'll be fine, more subs are blown by under powering than over powering
