hmmm sounds like 350+ rms is being used. would pushing 500 rms be too much? especially clean power like RF or PPI. the ratings are 250 rms right?

JL's can handle tha pwoer u throw at them, az long az its not distorted. In my laz car ( a SUV ) i had 2 JL 15w3 d4's and a RF 800a2 , and damn taht shit hurt !!, i had to go back and down size to tha Power500a2 , i couldnt handle all that power taht wuz commin out, but like i said tha JL's took it 970 watts goin to 2 15w3's thats like 500 watts a sub !!! and they took , neva blew 1 !! So they can handle tha power even if u give them more than 350watts !!!

It's a kenwood amp. I love the sub, it can be soft when i want it to be or it can frikken' pump when i want it to pump! lol. It's more than enough for me for this car.

...now if i had an suv, this would be a totally different story ;)

I was running two 12w3s for a while with a phoenix ms2250 which runs 1050 rms at 4ohms and the speakers just about melted down. I wouldn't reccomend it!

you should be fine but i would go to a shop that has JLs bible and see what the best enclosure would be for that much power because you will still be overdriving it.
