Make sure the sub is about 150 watts rms and the 4 ohms version or can be wired to 4 ohms , because you would have to bridge the amp.

I will be honest with you, the amp and sub you have and looking at, is noob entry level and in no time you will want to get something better and would end up selling cheap.

Sell the amp you have now and give us a budget we can recommend some thing good.

300 watts rms is a bit too much for that amp.

My budget right now is shitty considering my job sucks.. What I have right now is like a $120 system lol I'm thinking about getting a pioneer GM-5500t 820 max amp with a pioneer TS-W304R, system as a step up. Considering what I have now vibrates my car.

Also don't look at the "max" rating on the amp. That means nothing. You want to look at the rms rating
