I just ordered a JL audio stealthbox (for 05+ dc) to be installed by a local shop (sound sensations), and the guy said they were going to install it with a 1000w amp
I, having done extensive research on this and other sites, told him I'd rather they run no more than 600w amp to the box, seeing as both subs are 300w rms, and I could think of no instance in which anyone I had seen had run more than 600w to theirs.
The guy told me that at 600w the subs would be underpowered, and wouldn't perform at their best. I told him that though both subs are 600w max, I felt they were 300w rms for a reason, and I didn't want to damage them.
The guy reassured me that I wouldn't blow the speakers because it's still 200w below their advertised max. Went ahead and spent $80 on a 2 year warranty on the whole setup, so if they do blow I'm covered, but what do you guys think about what he said?
