Question

Will my 40x2 amp be enough to power a 10 inch sub decently? it's 112w RMS when bridged in 2 ohm.. say like a Kicker Comp C104 which is 25-125 rms or even a MTX Thunder4500 T4510 which is 55-225 rated? or would something in the range of the kicker be ideal? My amp is a concept audio cc-452 with a fuse rating of 20ax1. Cheers

how bout runnin the speakers and sub off the one amp in tri-mode? I know my amp supports it. It is 2 ohm steady and has a decent fuse rating of 20ax1. But speakers are 4 ohm only right? so how could I do tri mode @ 2 ohms for the sub and keep the speakers at 4? Heck even if I could get away with powering an 8 inch along with the current 5.25's up front that would be nice.. I just don't want to have to run another amp anywhere in my car..
