    The power of the active sub is more a factor of it's design than loudness as generally the smaller the enclosure, the more power needed.

    The original REL Q Bass was plenty loud enough with it's 40 watts

    Most subs can be connected at high level via the speaker connectors on the amp as well as via the LFE phono lead

    I reckon you'll need a 5000 Watt subwoofer especially as you think the MJ Ref 1 isn't good enough. Oh and how's the REL Q150 coming along, £500 well spent eh?
