Well Merry Xmas to me! I've had my 2000 s-10 xtended cab now for a few months and can't stand the stock speakers and no bass. So i bought myself a xmas present in the form of a 12" JL Audio W-3 sub. It's not gettin installed for a few weeks though when i get back up to school (btw GO KNIGHTS!....University of Central Florida) cuz my roomate is given me a sweet deal on a Pioneer DEH-7500 HU for like 130 bucks less then retail due to his SWEET discount so i figure i'm just gonna rip my interior up all at once. The finishing touch is either gonna be some MB Quarts PEC 216's or some Infinity Kappa Perfect's 6.5 components. I'll make sure to post pics when i get the HU and sub in....but man i get excited like a kid in a candy store just thinkin about the thought of bass vibrating my seat!

Yeah I have an amp...for now i have an autotech 4 X 100 amp but i dunno if it's 2 ohms cuz it's kinda old...so i'm either gonna run that amp and run the front channels to the components and run the back to the sub...but if the back channels won't be enough to power the sub i'm probably just gonna get a single amp to power to the subs

wont you need some sort of crossover to eliminate the higher frequencies the rear speaker channel, which youre powering the sub off of?

Isn't it roughly 300 rms? so shouldn't I match that rms with an amp around that power? or is alright to overpower it the way u were.....btw, how'd u like the sound of the w3 w/ amount of wattage?

So true..I ran that thing for a long time and never had any problems..then I got a 800 watt crossfire and that pushed em in the 89 dime and then in my 96 silverado for about a year and a half. to little power doesn't hurt shyt!
