So I've been waiting for the you UXL-18 to come back into stock and I was going to build a small sealed box and power it with the lt.1300. But I have a chance to pick up a used lms 5400 Ultra locally for a good price. My question is, would the lt.1300 be powerful enough for the LMS 5400 ultra?

Real world power on that amp was around 1,000 watts. Will it work, yes. Will it work well, not really.

You will not be happy with the output of the 1300.
I had one, and I sold it. FP14k clone is a much better value for the money.

You won't know if 1000w is enough unless you try it.

However, unless you can buy one for under $150 it would not be worth it.

You can get some real world power from an affordable pro amp like the EP4000 for less than $300.

I already have the lt.1300 and won't be able to purchase any more amps for at least a few months

You would be better off with a driver that would make full use of 1k watts. If that amp has a HPF a ultimax 15 would be s good choice, and its only $200.

If you already have, try it!
I used a 1000w amp with my first 5400 and it did pretty well.
You could always go with a larger cab to increase the efficiency, say 5 cubes.
