By chance is the sub a dual voice coil sub if so you can change the inpedance going to the amp.also if you don't have at lest 4gauge wire for power+ground you ground wire is as important or more than your power wire it is a somtimes a common over sight make sure the ground is as short as possible and in good contact with the vehicle frame

The problem would be if you had it switched around. The 1200W subwoofer only means that it can handle 1200w of power the 1000w amp means that it can deliver 1000w of power. What you may have is an impedance mismatch. My question is what is the resistance rating on the sub woofer and what is the minimum resistance rating of the amplifier. These are actully the important issues at hand. the rating of the subwoofer resistance in Ohms should never be lower then the minimum resistance rating on the amplifier. in fact the resistance rating on the amp should match the resistance rating on the subwoofer.
