i would say that sub is more of a 600w max 200rms based on experience. and those amplifier numbers make absolutely no sense at all.
really? iv heard it before and i think its a really nice sub. i dont know much about audio but i know a clean sub when i hear one. and the sub is underpowered by the amp, but still hits just fine

according to the specs you posted, the amp should be massively overpowering the sub. on paper.

i've gone through a fair amount of audio equipment, power acoustic is a bargain basement brand.

all that matters is you like it.

its stupid loud without a tailpipe. before we got my tailpipe on you literally had to yell to talk while on the highway. it was SO loud. and keep in mind before i went with this set up, i had a cut off muffler with no turn down or tailpipe after the cat. that was somewhat loud. but the 3" cat and super 44.. jesus..
not to mention the tone with the tailpipe is much better

maybe im getting numbers mixed up. idk. it definitely hits nice, i can say that.
not as clean as my friends new 15" kicker square sub (underpowered as well but WOW!)



so, funds are building up, when i have enough, i will be buying 4 of these
Rock Crawler Series 52 Black Powder Wheel

i love how these ones dont have the red and blue pinstripe on them. oh and the name Rock Crawler is SO much more appealing than D window

yeah, i wanna keep the blacked out look.
theres not too many other rims i like on zjs, the others that i do are too expensive.

Blacked out doesnt look nearly as good as a set of factory color moabs do on a black ZJ
