I dont think i could ever say that, as many systems as ive had...it can NEVER be loud enough

I've got one 12" W3 going in to my truck. I don't like to make my ears bleed or anything, but I'm sure it'll be more than enough for me.

I had (don't laugh) an old Alpine amp, 300W 4 channel, bridged to 150WRMS pushing an old Planet Audio USA 12" sub in a little (probably 1.0-1.5 cb ft) in my extended cab and gain on the amp was 2/3 . . . it wasn't outstanding, you could hear it outside the truck when I drove by and it would knock the mud off real well. This doesn't really answer your question but if it's not going to cost you much or to many negatives I'd go for a 2nd sub.

Depends on what your definition of 'bump' is. It depends on the setup: box, amp, sub, sound deadening, etc, etc.
