My awesome subwoofer which is a ported Blueprint 1001 flubs out when I turn it up all the way-all the way (turning down the other channels and turning the sub all the way up). I'm driving it with a 150-watt Parts Express subwoofer amplifier and the lights dim and the box gives port noise like heck, but I am planning to move to a dual-passive radiator cube design and want to know if I should save up for a big 250-watt plate amp as well. The woofer handles up to 300 watts, but probably more for short burps. Oh, and another thing: I'm going to college next year...fun, fun. Especially with the biggest stereo on the floor of the dorm (or probably the entire dorm)...definitely the biggest woofer in the building, and without a doubt the best quality. Noise violations, here I come! Anyway, back to my questions: 1. Would two of the Stryke PR's be good for this? 2. Should I ask for a 250w plate amp for christmas?
