mad What would YOU do??????

Lets say you buy a pair of subwoofers and an amp that matches your subs specs. Then your subs blow and you go back to the subwoofer website and the RMS rating magically dropped 50w. :fmad:

one I would be pissed. two... I would go and look at the subs specs that shipped in the box or on the box. If they were the rating you understood them to be I would contact the manufacturer and have them replace them. Period. If they specs are the 50 below then I hate to say you are SOL.

amped up

What kind of amp. Driving a sub upto and past the point of distortion with a smaller amp is much worse than good clean high power in a good box. I'm giving subs that handle 500w RMS, 700 w RMS and they're taking it. But it's an Orion XTR 1400 so its real clean.

Unless you were running junk subs and/or a junk amplifier running a bit more power is not going to ruin your subs. The problem is elsewhere.
