So here is what I have...

 

Amp: http://www.amazon.com/KICKER-DX250-1-WATTS-BLOCK-AMPLIFIER/dp/B004VD3158 : Kicker DX 250.1

Subwoofer: http://www.bestbuy.com/site/kicker-10-single-voice-coil-4-ohm-subwoofer-with-enclosure/9894295.p?id=1218190975541&skuId=9894295 

Amp Kit: http://www.amazon.com/Soundquest-SQ600XS-600-Watt-Blue-Twisted/dp/B0007U0G7U/ref=sr_1_cc_1?s=aps&ie=UTF8&qid=1382250354&sr=1-1-catcorr&keywords=soundquest+600 

 

I currently have the input gain control all the way up and getting pretty heavy bass around 25 volume control on my head unit. There isn't a major difference, if at all going past 26. And I haven't hit any distortion.

 

So my question is, am I close to blowing the voice coil or maxing out at 250 watts? Or is the amplifier keeping the subwoofer from going over 150 watts RMS? If I am truly hitting it's max load at 250 watts ( I can't tell whether it's 150 or 250, inexperienced), am I risking the subwoofer that can handle up to 300 watts? I would like to keep the subwoofer from going over 150 watts, but I have no idea if that's even possible.
