ok, but is it not true that you 1000% more power to make a speaker sound twice as loud? i think, for my needs, this will fine. I did some math, at 100W,the sub will already be pushing around 100 some db. i doubt i will ever want it that high as i want to preserve my hearing. the highest it will ever go will probably be the low 90s.
