Just set your gains properly. That will prevent clipping

Ohms Law will let you calculate how much power your getting. But if you didnt know that then you probably dont have the tools or knowledge of how to measure/calculate.
To easily set your amp gain for subs: Set low pass to 120Hz. Set gain on amp to minimum. set head unit to regular bass/treble/fade settings. then turn music up to 80% of full volume. Now adjust gain up until the output of speakers sound best (not distorted, not clipping, not popping). viola
