Whats the lowest i could go below the rms on my sub w/ out doing any damage, sub is ALUM12Q 1000RMS(some ppl say 1100rms) dvc 6ohm, could i run an amp that runs a 600rms@3 ohms?
looking @ HIFONICS BX1205D or something alittle bigger if i need to...

No because when sub wants more power youd end up having the amp clipp and if severe enough you would damanage both amp and sub.

Go with somthing around 800 to be shore but 600 from 1000 isnt all that bad at one point i was running a legacy 600watt 2 channel amp to 2 of my 500RMS subs didnt have a problem.

as long as your amps input voltage matches up with your headunits output voltage you will have no clipping. You could safely run that sub on 10 watts of power if it were all matched up. Any amp will work with any amount of power it just has to be tuned properly. The more power you have the louder it gets.(3db everytime you double the power) the difference between 600 watts and 900 watts is gonna be hardly noticable. As long as you hook it up properly you will have no problems with 500 watts on a 1000 watt rms sub.

Mike D tell us youself if youre gonna correct him, I hate searching thru those huge pages.

A clipped signal will create a little more motor heat than a proper sine wave because it can't cool down as well. But yeah its unrealistic to blow a sub with a clipping 75 watt signal.

When the cone can't rebound from the wave smoothly (PROLONGED TIMESPAN)the sub "technically" and very "technically" is being abused...maybe even a premature blown speaker..

I mean if I heard a clipped speaker I'd say
"uhh that can't be good."

hey, they would do the job but i think if u want to spend cheap and power ur subs there is a boss audio amp that is 1400 watt or something like that, well that would be the best way to go and they only go for like 200 or so dollars so that would be the best thing to do.

its better to over power a sub than underpower it, less chance of blowing it.
