No; and in any case the 8" will complain a lot before it goes Kaboom. so you will have plently of time to turn it down. it is very easy to hear when a woofer is being pushed beyond it's physical limits.

@febyphilabr, 300W RMS is an indicative max number - not the actual power that flows in normal or even moderately loud listening. If you turn the volume all the way up, probably you will hear distortion much before reaching max levels. If you are conscious of this, you will not blow your sub.

If you really want to play loud, go for a 12" woofer.
