if i had a sub that could handle 500 watts rms but i only gave it 320 rms mono. would that damage the sub by underpowering it?

you can run a 500wrms sub w/ 320wrms. just be carful and dont clip the amp. you will be just fine if you dont clip the amp.

and if you wanted to make your power handling effectively less but more efficient with your 320 rms going with a large enclosure will help you too

and just as a side note ported boxes are more efficient with power than sealed

what is clipping an amp exactly?

Clipping occurs when you push an amp beyond its limits. It can't provide enough voltage and "clips" the top(and bottom) off the otherwise sinusoidal signal making it resemble a square wave.

Not good for drivers as the cone actually stops moving for a while at peak excursion which can lead to the voice coil heating up enough to fail.

Plus it just plain sounds nasty.
