Re: Installing subwoofer part 1 - rear trunk
Oh ya, I'll add some more vids on the final install and performance. I think the amp is rated a solid 180wrms into 4ohms, 300wrms into 2ohms. It's a 4ohm woofer. I figured better not to load down the electrical system with a 2ohm sub. Might be adding a small capacitor, we'll see how it goes. I've got HID 35w already so a tiny bit power savings there.
It's not huge... what's going into my truck is 4kw, I had 1.8kw in my F150. Neither is crazy but both of them can flap the wipers an inch off the windshield. Look up Steve Meade for some entertainment on youtube.
That JBL sub is good bang for the buck, has decent Xmax cone travel and rated 250wrms.
Also the amp is class-D so very efficient. Not like class A/B which uses twice what it puts out.
