Has anyone used this amp? I am currently using a pioneer xm742 (240watts rms) to power my 2 12" jlaudio w0's. How much difference would the thunder 302 be? It is rated at 300watts rms but I am sure it will pump out more.

Well I've found that the MTX thunder line is under-rated, so it pushes out more watts then it says. So you'll be getting more raw power out of the MTX. Pioneers are good clean amps, nice clean bass but it can't be pushed as a MTX.

In my old '96 Altima I used both Pioneer and MTX. Like you I first ran the Pioneer for my subs then swaped it out for a MTX and not only could I hear the diffrence I could feel it to. My little 200watt MTX thunder pushing 2 10" MTX 5000 series Subs. After I used the Pioneer push my highs.

I think that's exactly what I will do. I will swap out my pioneer and run my fronts and rears in parallel so I can run my deck speakers off of my amp and use the mtx for my subs.
