    Default Is 150 watts RMS enough to push a Polk db1040?

    I'll be powering the db1040 with 150 RMS at 4 ohms in a sealed enclosure. The sub will be located in a hatchback so I'm not entirely concerned about volume per se, rather I'm curious as to see the quality of the sound with powering a sub 120 watts below it's max. Obviously I don't need to fully power it all the way up to 270 watts, but I'm focused on its effects on sound quality.

    You should be just fine.

    Yup thatll work. If you can upgrade to a 300 watt amp later that would be better.
