Specs on the Pioneer sub/amp combo....

anyone have this? looking for RMS watts, peak watts, what OHMs the amp and sub operate at....

i am probably going to be upgrading to a different sub and was wondering if the amp would power it......

yes i probably could get another amp, but it wont be that small to fit under the console with the speaker enclosure.......

this is the sub i am going to get...

it will be difficult to make most any other speaker fit
that is a tuned port enclosure - fitted to the existing speaker
you will likely have to craft a new enclosure to fit the space available in the empty console housing
did the remote amp come with the console you purchased?
can you check the power directly?

it isn't ported......yes the amp came with the console....it is the factory amp that goes with the console and the Pioneer sub/system...it is mounted to the sub enclosure......

if it isn't ported what is that custom plastic enclosure?
maybe I do not have my stereo terms down
the way I figure it that space is fitted to the existing speaker and aids in its performance

a ported enclosure has an open hole in it......a sealed enclosure is just as it sounds...it is sealed tight so air can't escape.....

that is why i am trying to find the specs of the amp/sub combo......that would tell me what kind of air volume the Pioneer speaker has and how much i have to work with on a new speaker...

not sure of the remote amp - the system is 290 watts but part of that probably came from the head unit

no not yet....i am going to take the console back out Saturday to paint it all up to match my interior.....i was gonna pull the sub then...

i can't hook up an OHM meter cause i dont have the plug that goes into the amp yet......hopefully i can get it in a few weeks, so for now i dont have any power to the amp...

cant do that cause of the power seats.....i woud say the factory amp has plenty of power to push the Kicker......the Kicker calls for 50 to 300 RMS watts....

when you have the speaker out, hook up the ohm meter to the speaker leads...


the factory amp could push it, but i would be worried that it would start clipping from lack of power

yup

this is what my subs are running at... but this the same principal. The reason its not exactly at 1 ohm is the speaker wire

so with the Kicker being a dual 2 ohm voice coil, then the amp needs to be a 4 ohm amp right? so if the Pioneer sub is a single voice coil and is running at 4 ohms then i would be fine...
