I have a 10 inch 750watt subwoofer and a 600 watt amp in my car and i
played some basstester songs on it and it stopped working today. so i
turned the car off and restarted it and the woofer works but only when
the volume is under 15, i used to play it on 20 and it worked fine. if
i turn it up past 14 the woofer stops working and i have to turn the
car off and restart it. what do you think the problem is? did i blow it?
If you turn the power off and restart, the most logical answer i know of is your amplifier is going bad. I am not sure of the model and brand of your amplifier, but there should be a protection light on the amplifier somewhere that will most likely be on, caused by overloading the amplifier.
You will most likely have to replace the amplifier, or check with the manufacturer to find out if they can repair it or help to further diagnose the problem.

Do to the impedance Of your sub u can't run it @2ohms its going to either be @1ohm or 4ohms and your amp isn't 1ohm stable and u will risk damaging your amp. So your only option is to run it @4ohms and on a good note your sub is 100-600 watts RMS and your amp will push 400-500 watts RMS @4ohms. Now if you want to run 2 sub's in the future That amp will work perfect because it pushes 1,200watts RMS @2ohms and to wire your 2 sub's @1ohm just follow the steps in the image below. Hope this helped.
Wow, i just answered a similar question so, pretty much the same answer.......
You seem to be looking for an amp made for car audio. There are many
brands, but I going to give you the specs for your particular speaker
which will help in choosing, not a specific name brand amp, but at least
one with the proper power outputs/requirements.
based on the model number you provided, is rated at 4 ohms .Nominal power
handling range is 300 watts. And a peak of 600watts. That does not
mean start cranking 600 watts thru the speaker, it will blow. I suggest
you acquire a single (mono) channel amp that provides 350-400 watts at 4
ohms. Leaves you a little headroom on the amp, but use caution.
yes, but you would not get the same performance as you would if you gave them the suggested power. I have found that it is always better to use a more powerful amp than your subs are rated for (as long as it is clean, high quality, low distortion power). I have had the best luck with name brand amps (kicker,rockford fosgate,phoenix gold,etc...). I hope this will be helpful to you.
It depends on the box you are installing them in. If you're going for sealed box they you can put 600-800 watts on them as long as you're careful with the gains and bass boost off. In a ported enclosure I wouldn't put more than 600 rms on them and still be careful with the gains. set your filter on your amp to about 80 hertz and match it on your source unit.
