Question about Pioneer TS-SWX310 Car Subwoofer
I just installed a new amp and sub in my son's truck. Alpine ms-mrp500 rated at 300 watts rms into 4 ohms and a Pioneer ts-swx310 enclosure 250watts nominal, 1000 max, 4 ohms. After 1 day the sub appears to be blown. Still works but rattles at all volumes. My question is, is this amp too powerful for the sub? One other thing - he blew two 20 amp inline fuses to the amp so replaced it with a 30A. The amp calls for a 60A fuse. Shouldn't the smaller fuse have prevented the amp from delivering full power?Any help is appreciated. Thanks! Matt
Fuses wont restrict the current flow the amp is way too much for that sub. it may not have damaged that sub yet but it will. you might only need a 100 watts rms too run it.but you will need sowe where about 2000 watt sub too run off that amp

Hi Trim God,
I do not reccommend that you push the Pioneer speakers over 100 watts. The jenson will already drown the car with bass through your pioneers so much you will want to turn off the bass boost when playing some low bass hip hop songs. It changes from one venue of song to another, so I just keep the jenson bass boost off and use my head unit to adjsut the sound to fit my listening prefences. I am telling you man, you will be blown away . Hook up the pioneers straight to the Channels,. do not bridge. I put Subs in my truck though. I used the Pass output to send the audio to me Jenson 2 Channel 600W amp. I drive one 10 inch enclosed JBL Class A/B Sub. I bridged the output of the 600 W amp to the 10 inch sub in my Z28. The pioneers never get drowned out. I did smoke my 2 channel Amp one time. and also took out a MTD 10inch sub. I am talk shooting flames and smoked the whole car up. I think if you bride the XA4150 to the pioneers, you will have the flaming smoke problem in no time.
