Will a 500/1 push a 12w7 to max excursion in ported box?


i wantedto know if a jl 500/1 could push a 12w7 to max excursion with a well built ported box. i dont want an answer like "it'll do" i want to know if it is going to or should i go with the 1000/1 amp.... also i was wondering if 2 12w7s with a 1000/1 VS 3 12w7s with a 500/1 each.... what would be louder... i know the 2 subs would have more watts but the 3 subs would have quite a bit more area... let me know what ya think guys thanks a lot.

Around tuning, no. A 1000/1 wouldn't push a 12W7 to max excursion at tuning. But below tuning, a 500/1 could definately push the 12W7 to max excursion. You have to know how a ported box works, above and at tuning, a ported box actually allows much less excursion than a sealed box does. Below, the sub loses damping and excursion rises rapidly. As far as the comparison, the 3 12W7s would be louder by a pretty good amount.
