Will I be happy with the 250/1 amp? Enough power for real bass? Or do I need to jump up to the 500/1 amp? I don't need to have my neighbors hear the bass from a block away. Just enough for me to feel the bass in the car and around the car.

Trying to compromise so I can purchase the clarion vrx925vd hu soon. With the 500/1 amp, then I need a bigger sub which means more $$. Thinking about 1 12w3 enclosed sub. ???

I'd go with a class D amp on the sub, way more power for the money. I would suggest a JBL 600.1 (600watts) on the 12W3, that sub will take it all day long. You may be disappointed with 250 watts but it'll still get hella loud.

That is all you need - especially when dealing with JL Audio. I have heard a JL 250 watts system and a 3000 watts other system (to protect the manufacture) and the JL sound so much better. You will be happy with the 250/1 JL.
