Subwoofer and amplifier wattage problem

If I have a subwoofer with an RMS of 500 watts and peak power of 1500 watts, and I use an amplifier with an RMS of 300 watts and a peak power of 1100 watts, will this affect the functioning of the subwoofer or it's quality?

Two questions. 1) can my amplifier over-power this sub; kicker L7 15 inch dual voice coil 1,000 watts RMS wired for 2 ohms? 2) is my amp too small for this sub-woofer? thank you for your time.

No, your not over powering your L7, your underpowering your subwoofer.
Your Kenwood is
500W x 1 at 4ohms [20-200kHz 0.5% THD]
900W x 1 at 2ohms [100Hz 1.1% THD]
Your L7 is:
Max Rec Amplifier Power (WATTS PEAK/RMS)* 2000/1000But its ok for your subwoofer, alteast your not giving it to much stress. But personaly, get another mono amplifier that would match your subwoofers rating.

    this bandpass enclosure is rated peak power at 1200 watts . what this means is that each subwoofer in the is peaked at 600watts to make 1200 watts . what your looking for is to power up the subs with rms continuous wattage . you need an amp that will put out 400 to 500 rms a channel to run this sub enclosure at 800 to 1000 watts rms to keep the speaker from blowing

    I hooked up 2channel 500 watt amplifer and 1200 watt 300 rms subwoofer now the protection light comes on when i turn up volume

    your speakers rating is too low for your amplifier. 300 watts RMS means the speaker can operate on an average of 300 Watts continuously. the 1200 watt rating is peak wattage input and meant for intermittent intervals only, a like a bass drum beat count. also , your speaker impedance must match your amplifier impedance or the speaker must be a higher impedance than the amplifier. Never lower than the amplifier's impedance output rating. If The amplifier is rated into an 8 ohm load, your speaker must be 8 ohms or higher. in other words you cannot use a 4 ohm speaker or you will damage the amplifier .

    I have 2 15 inch mofos do i need two poweracoustik 4000D AMPS?

    You want an amplifier that is rated for the subwoofers. In your case your subwoofers are rated at 1500 watts rms each, so you will need an amplifier of 1500 watts rms or more for one subwoofer. good luck

    Blown subwoofer

    1400 is PEAK power. not to be mistaken with RMS. 1400W in SHORT bursts.
    RMS on them is 500-600W.
    Your amplifier gain may be improperly set. How big is the enclosure and what amplifier are you using. All of these things will play a factor in answering your question. Dont expect a $400 experience from $100 subs.
