Hello all, I have what is probably a very basic question, but one that I don't know the answer to. I have an Infinity Kappa Perfect 12 DVQ sub. Unfortunately I only have the BASH 300 (parts express) powering it. With the DVQ I am only running 150 watts RMS to the woofer. It actually sounds great with music but clearly needs more power for HT. So here is my question.

Does more watts RMS mean-

More excursion

More volume

Or both, and are they neccessarily independant or dependant on another?

Thanks for the help. (Long time lurker)

Thanks all, so to clarify, and to possibly raise some eyebrows here... My Infinity sub has an RMS of 400 and a peak of 1400. In WinISD it reaches Xmax at roughly 400 watts. Why would I want to use a Behringer 2500 to power this sub if a far lesser amp will reach the woofers Xmax? (Am I making any sense here?)
