Overpowered/Underpowered Sub Woofers


Recommended Posts

Edit: You can't thermally blow a sub by underpowering it, unless the signal is clipped. And a sub won't automatically blow when sent a clipped signal; there still has to be enough power to overheat the voice coils. If you have a high power sub and send it low power, you can clip the bejesus out of it all day and not blow the sub.


If you had read more then the last two pages you'd know that we've argued the crap out of the fact that you CAN blow a high power sub with a low power amp.

Question about the factory speakers in a 05 LGT Sedan. Im listening to the factory stereo today thinking to myself...Something doesn't sound right. Like there is no bass. So I popped the trunk since this car is still three weeks old to me and noticed that above on the rear deck there is one large round hole that looks like there was once a speaker there before. Am I missing something like a factory sub woofer or something?
