It wouldn't hurt to get one...you are running a good amount of stuff....not to mention you're gonna want those amps to get clean power and not clip...

It's when the sub is calling for more power from the amp than the amp can give. So the amp sends the sub a clipped signal; a square sound wave. I guess square sound waves contain more energy, but they are destructive to speakers. Amplifiers produce the most current right before they go into clipping.
