No offense buddy, but you probably shoudl have asked us before buying it, not after, haha.
But I'll try to help you out. I've always heard that its a lot better to overpower than to underpower your subs. Underpowering them will lead to distortion at high volumes, which will cause damage to your sub, and possibly your amp. As I mentioned in the previous thread regarding your sound system, I ran a 900W amp for my Alpine R12. I personally don't think its enough power. You always want an amp that'* as least as powerful as your sub'* RMS rating.
