i had that sub, and it was easily over powered all the time, and yes it will uner power the kciker, and over power the pioneer

if they flutter at all this is know as sub strain, which means they are being over powered, sometimes this sound sounds like something is lose in your car

When a sub is being over powered and is clipping it doesn't have to break right away, it is getting damaged. And running that sub is not giving the kicker the power it wants, it may sound better because you have a circular sub hitting those highs a bit more, but your wasting power running that second sub. If you don't care about that sub, and think it sounds better I see no reason not to just leave it like that. But that sub WILL blow, 150w is not much power what ever your feeding will burn the coil, or bust the spiders eventuality. How many watts are you running RMS, or what amp is that you have?

Then defiantly don't run that extra sub, give that L5 everything it wants. If you want a cheap improvement, build a sealed box for it, it will sound better.

Because the best box is the one you build yourself.
