You'll be fine the amp pushes out more or less about 250 rms so the sub will be fine but how are you going to get the amp to turn on?Just a run through of what I was thinking, and I just wanted to know if it was feasible.
I have a Pioneer GM-5500T Amp, which is a 2-channel amp, pumping out 125w RMS x 2 at 4Ohms, bridged its 400w RMS.
I was going keep the stock rear speakers, and splice into their inputs from the trunk and connect them to the L/R high-inputs on my amp; which then leaves me with L/R outputs from the amp to plug into the sub(s). With this setup, I was thinking of getting a single 10" Pioneer sub (http://www.sonicelectronix.com/item_32838_Pioneer-TS-W259S4.html) (I want to conserve as much space as possible in the trunk) and bridge it, running it at 400watts.
Another question of mine is that the RMS rating on that sub is 350w, while my amp runs at 400w. Is there a huge risk of burning out the voice coil? The gain on my amp is roughly at 35-40%.
For starters, Is this setup even feasible in the sense that I would get decent sound from the sub and whatever stock output from the speakers; or would there be too much of a compromise in sound quality of the sub due to the splicing (as opposed to dedicated wiring)
