I'm gonna power this with my MRP-M500 and take it from there.
OK smartypants, but when your sub slaps itself to death from trying to play freqs below it's tuning, you will wish you had a subsonic filter no more than 5 hz below that tuning.

What you are saying is that the sub can handle 3000 watts RMS.

Pretty much every time I've seen an SA-8 setup, the amp gives 900-1500 good RMS to one. They take it all day. If I gave it the suggested 600 watts RMS I would feel like I was underpowering it. That's why it's my favorite small size sub. That and it moves hella air.

This. Steve Meade is a partner with Rockford Fosgate. He uses RF amps and drivers, and his own line of Ascendant Audio subs. He was the first to own a 3sixty.3, before it was released publicly.

You have the LPF. You need a subsonic filter.
