will an MTX MXA8001 suit this sub well?

this amp is underrated at 800 wrms

how long should i break it in for and at what volumes?

will this be a good system?

1. Alpine CDA-7995
2. Soundstream EGC.6 6.5" components
3. Eclipse 8" 87081.4 midbass drivers
4. MTX MXA6004 (125-150wrms)

yup nice system. Break it in however you want to. Everyone will tell you something different. I would say just gradually turn it up and up a little more over two or three days or so.

Exactly what Jame's said. People will give you all kind's of different anser's on that subject.:-)
Just take it easy for 3 day's and you should be fine.
The amp will work nice with that sub. Grate system.

will an audiobahn A2002T amp power an eclipse dual voice coil 10", and will it sound good better in a bandpass box or sealed? I have a regular cab s10.

You can try it but be very careful. Your really not gonna hurt the subs if you keep them at low levels, or low wattage. Your not gonna need to run 750 rms to the TI in free air. If you do push it, don't let if run very long at all.

Yeah, no newbs asking stupid questions tonight.
James isn't on either.

Sub, don't you have a box you can just throw the eclipse in? You can try free airing it, I doubt you'll hurt it, just be careful. I think I'd cry if you hurt it.

Well, that's what I told him, does he listen....
I really don't think it would hurt it that much if you ran it for a few seconds.

Yeah, I guess I'm with Hunter... I really don't even like the thought of him hooking up whatever amp he has either. Just wait till you get a good amp. You'll enjoy it more. I'm gonna reach through my computer and strangle you. Have fun looking at your sub thought until youi have everything else, lol.

Ha. Good. Take pictures, and then leave it alone.

I guess I'm gonna be like you guys too. I finally sold my sysytem and I'm gonna get a Orion HCAA 250g4 to eventually run an Avalanche 15". So I'm just gonna have a really awsome amp sitting in my room for a while.

Wanna send your sub over here? I'll run my amp to it and tell you how it sounds. That amp would be perfect for that sub...

Maybe you should just get your system finished first. lol. You sound like my friend with the eclipse alum. First he's gonna sell everything, his dirtbike, go kart, system, and get an eclipse TI with a awsome amp in a huge @ss ported box. Then maybe he could get a TI Pro if he sold some more stuff. Nahh, maybe he want's to try a Brahma now. Heck, maybe I should just keep my Eclipse Alum and get a better amp. Hmm, what if I had 2 TI's instead of a Pro? I wanna try Treo and Mmats too.

I think I'm gonna slap him someday. He changes his system before he even has it...
