Hi fellas im look and getting a sub and amp for my XR and i was looking at pioneer gear and am keen on the TS-W306C but im not sure on an amp i only wana run the sub so would the GM-3300T be fine if you bridge it?

No, that amp will not be sufficient enough to power the sub...the sub will be severely underpowered in my opinion...save the extra dollers to get a better amp.

The GM-5300T gives enough power for the sub, so get that or better. If not, for the price you pay for a Pioneer amp, you can always go with a Response amp from JayCar which are pretty good and probably cheaper.

I've got the TS-306C powered by an Alpine MRP-M650 monoblock amp = more than enough power for my liking.

I previously had it powered by bridging 2 channels of my 4 channel amp but trust me the monoblock makes all the difference :wink:

Totally agree with cooki - have it powered by good class D amp .. higher efficiences are achieved in class-d amplifiers which is what you are after when looking to power a sub with as much grunt as you can pull from. Class A,B and A/B amps generrally multi channel amps provide a less efficient level of output power
