I am looking fixing up my cars stereo and I am not sure about how to pair a sub with an amp. I am using crutchfield.com. I found some speaker I subs I would like to get, they are 12" kickers and there is an 8 ohm version and a 4 ohm version. They are rated for 50 - 150 watts. Now my guess was to buy a 2 channel amp (I wan't two subs) and use it. The one I am looking at is 125 watts @ 4 ohms X 2 speakers. I read that you may want to buy an over-rated amp so you don't blow it by trying to drive excessive speakers. Is this an acceptable combination.
