Basic rule of thumb is to have an amp capable of providing the RMS continuous watt rating of the sub or better. If you have a 300 watt amp supplying 2 300 watt rated subs then will that work..............yes...........but it would be better to have a 600 watt amp. Distortion is more of an enemy to the subs than raw power. The higher your amp is gained up the more distortion your subs will experience at high volumes.
