sub question...

I have this amp that can be ran at 4ohm 125 watts or 2ohm 250 watts. I have a sub that is rated for 300 watts rms @ 3ohm. I want to run the amp @2 ohm for more power. What is going to happen?

Best something in Texas.... just don't know what it is yet....

Really? I think all W7s and most or all of the W6s are 3 ohm.

your amp is going to run at 3ohms because your subwoofer is 3ohms. the power will be about halfway between 125 and 250.

just for reference, what amp?
