runnin from another thread. I know max power/peak power is the one you ignore. RMS is the one you look at, but ive looked on loads of audio shops online and all it says for my sub is that its 1200 Max, 350w rated input power.

nope, never any set value
The neumonic RMS stands for Root Mean Squared. Its a calculated value. It is the average value of power. the RMS is a constant value which doesnt always exist but its the average of a system which fluctuates at a frequency of 50Hz.
true true. In the case of subs i suppose id just buy an amp that will run a given power and get a sub which is made by the same brand marked with the same power. That way its the same level of exaggeration.
run the comps off the sony amp, get a mono amp for the sub like bryan said, or get the same amp i have running my sub, its about 110 quid, kenwood kac 7201, in bridged mode, it gives out 460w rms at 4 ohms. stick the sub on the sub out off the hu, stick the comps on the front pre outs, get a distribution block in the boot to split the power cable, upgrade to at least 4 gauge cable if you havent got that already. check out http://www.caraudiodirect.co.ukwww.caraudiodirect.co.uk they got tonnes off cheap stuff
