Default 1,000 wrms on a JL 12W6v2?

I know "you can never have too much power," but I wanted to throw this out there.

Anyone have any experience powering a 12W6v2 with an amp that does around 1,000+ wrms?

I'm currently feeding my 12W6v2 with an amp that does a bit over its 600 wrms rating (probably about 650-670 watts), but I picked up the amp's big brother, which is rated at 1,000 watts and amp planning to swap it into my Jeep this coming week.

Thoughts? Experiences?

a speaker can't use more than it is rated for without distorting or reaching xmax. Since a 12W6 is about 600w max, you'll only end up lowering the gain on the new amp to the point where its power output would be about the same as your current amp.

I don't have any experience with that particular sub, but most well made subs will handle double the rms rating on music (hence, the common max power rating). Just don't play test tones wide open, for long.

What brand amplifier is it? As long as it’s clean power your fine, I had a Mmats hd4000.1 playing 4 of them for over 2 years and never blew 1, I still have the 4 woofers and a spare 1 in my garage.

Yeah, what Mullings said^^^
Just keep it clean. I'm currently running two 1000 watt rms subs with two 3000 watt rms amps, gain is set for about 2200 watts each.
