    Need amp suggestion

    Hey, I am purchasing two 12" Alpine Type R's to replace my rockford he's and I was wondering what a good amp to power these would be. I have a friend that has a rockford punch500 amp and I was wondering if this is a good amp for the subs or if there is another amp that would push these better for that price range.

    Re: Need amp suggestion

    Im hoping to get an amp for right at or below 250. I know this is kind of low but its all I got to go towards an amp because I'm only gettin 100 out of my 1000 watt Sony.

    Re: Need amp suggestion

    yeah your best bet is probaly to wire them @ 1 ohm and push 1000 watts or so to them, my friend has 1500 going to them w/ the gains set and everything and MAN do those things pound but you could try the i recommend the d1200.1 http://www.ikesound.com/product-product_id/2424 189.99 refurb pushin 1200 watts @ 1 ohm set your gain correctly and you should be ok
