    I have a B&W ASW-300 and I was just playing some bass-intensive metal music at a moderate level -18dB on my reciever and the sub kept clipping on and off, I'm guessing it was the bass-overload protection that kept kicking in. I felt the cooling fins on the back of the sub and they were quite warm.

    It's only an 8" woofer, should I buy another ASW-300 and daisy chain them or see if my dealer would let me upgrade to the next model with a 10" driver?

    Get an SVS sub! [​IMG]
    Seriously, I don't know what exactly is going on w/yours, but does not sound good. Rather than adding another smallish sub, see if you can step up to another level entirely.
