    What Amplifier

    I am installing 2 12" alpine type R's (12d4)...the amp im looking at is the Rockford Fosgate 1200 watt..Im probably going to wire the subs to a 1 ohm load so each sub would be getting 600 each. Is this a good amp for the subs im getting, or should i get a different amp? I want to power them perfectly so theyre not getting to less or not enough power. Please help!

    Depends on which alpines. The newer versions are 1000 rms each if you get an amp that's 2000 rms at 1 ohm you might need to do some work on your cars electrical. Such as big 3 which you should do any ways and a better battery Also your budget comes into play for an amp

    Re: What Amplifier

    Well i thought they were rated at 1000 watts rms..but on sonic electronix they changed them to 600. My friend powered the one type r (the newest ones) with a 1000 watt amp and a week into it the sub blew/overheated with too much power.. It could of been anything i guess but as of right now im looking at the two newest 12in alpine type R's, kenwood hd headunit, 4AWG amp wiring, ported box, and the rockford amp and all that is going to cost $1000. The big 3 upgrade and a better car battery are on my list of wants. I just dont want to buy something then over power it and ruin it within a week or month.

    Re: What Amplifier

    If you want a good under rated sub go with sound qubed hc3 they are inexpensive and best BANG for your buck one 12 will cost you 250$ and it RMS at 1500 but can handle way more it peaks and 4000 watts. its and under rated sub. my buddy has 2 15 inch hc3 walled off in a blazer hitting a 153.8. i would suggest going with an audio pipe amp they true to the wattage
