I'm finishing the box/enclosure and will soon install a new 10" momo dual voice coil sub in my son's truck. My mono amp is rated at:
220 watts RMS at 4ohms and 350 watts RMS at 2ohms,
The MM2104DVC is rated at 300 wats RMS.
I really want to wire the sub in parallel to get the most out of the amp at 2ohms but I'm affraid I may overpower the sub. I've read that some people recommend a higher power amp that is as much as 15% more watts than the speaker, but I'm not sure. If it were me, I think I could restrain myself and not overpower the sub with distortion and potentially blow it out but it's going into my 17-year-old son's truck.
What do you think? Should I just use one voice coil and settle for 220 watts out of the amp to be conservative and not risk damage to the sub?
