Default quick sub and amp question.

I have a JL 6w3v3-4 subwoofer. And im quite lost as to how I am going to power it. as its a 125W sub, but you can only buy amps in 200W and up.

and i dont want to overdrive it and break it. how do I proceed?

Is that a 6" w3v3? If so, buying a slightly large amp for the sub is actually much healthier than buy too small an amp. It will help prevent clipping which will fry the sub. You coul use a 2kw amp if you wished, you would just have to keep the gain almost at 0 with no bass boost.

I would recommend 200w rms per speaker, that way you have plenty of head room...

PS: you have a very nice speaker, dont cheap out on the amp or box!
