The sub has surprised me for sure- I didnt expect such a full sound from such a small enclosure. It is a bit weak below 60hz, but there is no substitute for enclosure size and speaker size here. Im running 300wrms on it right now. I definitely should have used 1/4" instead of 1/2" but its all done now

So I dropped the truck off at car tunes for diagnostics. And they said everything is fine. The amp gets warm. Not hot enough to shut off. So my worries went away there. They did discover I have a tear in the rubber boot on the passenger side sub.

The subs read an ohm of 4. Is this good?

It's ok, i have plenty of time.

The Sundown Xv2's where supposed to be released on the 24th and they haven't shipped yet

That gives me time to figure out / steal idea's on how to built an amp subfloor enclosure with temp controlled fans for both amps that the sub box can sit on top of.

140-150 is a HUGE span. That's like saying 60-160mph

You could do that. But that's going to be terrible and it'll sound like shit. A proper wall is just a big ass box.

You're going to want a bigger amp.

140-50?

IIRC To gain 3 db you have to double the amount of power and those gains are exponential.

Just as an example if your doing 140db at 1500w to get 143 you would need 3000w on the same system, 146db would take 6000w and so on.

Amirite?
