    Default Rockford Fosgate subs and amp

    I have a Rockford Fosgate Punch P500.2 amp that puts out 500 watts RMS. I have connected and bridged a Rockford Fosgate Punch P212 that is rated at 400 watts RMS. If i have the amp at half gain is this too much power for the sub to handle? Can I turn the gain up more, is it good where it is at or should I lower it. I do not want to blow this sub.

    I have a 500s and Im running it on a sony explode twelve rated at 250 rms you ll be fine as long ans your reasonablewith the volume. Im also running a xlc 18with 512 watts on it rated at 250 rms . With power comes responsibilty !

    it comes down too careful listening a speaker will handle more power better than less power.... do to the signal being cleaner at louder volumes

    Just use your ears to control the volume. If it's bottoming out, reel it in a little. But you really can't have too much power to a woofer unless you're going to try to push it's limits.
