If its a good amp that is actually pushin 300 watts i would say the sub would beat but not reach full excursion.

Even if it does push out 300W, with a sub like that which peaks at 2000W, it would blow the Amp eventually.

yea the sub will destroy the amp...the sub will want more power then the amp can get causing it to more or less self destruct...

I wouldn't recomend running 2000 watts to that sub for verry long!:-) It won't last...
Just build a really big box, or best option is a bigger amp.

i believe the rms is 750 on that sub not sure so it might work on 500 watts depending on the effeciency on the sub but i dont think solos are to effecient.

effecincy rating on 1 watt per one meter isnt the be all end all i personally have seen one L7 12 hit 149 db on a kicker 1200.1

Those subs will run off of far less than RMS, i have a pair of 10s rated at 600 watts RMS and there is 550 going to each sub and its still way too much, i dont know how much different the 15 inch L7s are but the 10s would be perfect at about 300 watts

let me get this right they are rated at 600rms and u are giving them 550 each? you consider that alot less? well for one thing l7 is a spl sub not sq so giving it so little power is a waste in my opinion and would be better to have a different sub and supply it its rms rated power. i heard 2 12" l7s getting 400rms and was installed buy a local shop that "actually knows what they are doing" and it was weak.

well i didnt know the stats on the 15 inch L7s thats why i said they i dont know how much different they are than the 10s, and i didnt say 550 watts was a lot less than 600 i said they would run on a lot less than that. and my whole system was professionally installed and i was advised to not even turn my sub levels on my cd player up any higher than 0 and it goes from -6 to +6 so a 10 inch L7 would be good with between 300 and 350 watts, and thats in a small sealed enclosure. if i had known the 15 inch subs had a higher RMS than the 10s do i would have said no it would not run off of 300 watts

he said bridged so it will be more than 300 watts. i guess 600? if its a 2 channel. but i still think that might not be enough.

I have this sub and was looking for enclosure measurements. Does anyone have any reccomendations for a nice, moderately sized enclosure hat will fit in an 88 Seville? Looking for SQ and have a rather beastly amp to accomomdate the subs power cravings. Is there good software which will help me design my enclosure?

If you are looking for SQ my first advice is to get a different sub, L7s are an SPL sub and they do that fairly well but The SQ isnt great.

at 51 hz the kicker l7 12 i listened to didnt sound too bad to me they seem to favor that area more so than the extreme low end
