Is a 500 watt subwoofer loud?
Originally Answered: Is 500 watt speakers loud? It’s probably quite loud, but a wattage rating by itself is pretty meaningless, as it only measures power and not output. It could also be measuring a number of things. For example, a speaker with 500W peak power handling might only be able to handle 250W sustained.
Does more watts mean louder subwoofer?
When it comes to “volume,” many musicians only consider the amplifier’s power or wattage rating, and in general, more watts does mean “louder.” But while wattage is an important consideration, the efficiency of the speaker(s) that are connected to the amplifier are also an important factor in the loudness equation.

You can run a “1200w speaker” with a 10 watt amp. You don’t need to explain it to me, but if someone in another post said they wanted a PSU at 800w enough for their computer system, you wouldn’t have been so condescending.
Is 200 watts enough for subwoofer?
If the sub is 8 ohms, you could use pretty much any amplifier to drive the subwoofer as most amps have no problem driving 8 ohms. I would pick between a 200 and 250 watt sub. Not max 200 watts, but an RMS of 200 watts. 250 watts is headroom to eliminate distortion at the drivers maximum 200 watts.
How many watts should subwoofer be?
If you have: A factory radio — you won’t need more than 50 to 200 watts RMS of power for the bass. An aftermarket receiver — you might want 200 to 300 watts RMS of power. Amplified speakers with around 50 watts RMS per channel — 250 to 500 watts RMS is a good starting point.
