    Which amp to buy?

    Ok so I'm going to be setting up a whole new system in my car and I need to get an amp and some subs. Right now I'm trying to stay around $500-600 for the amp and subs. I've been looking at probably getting a 2 channel kicker amp (been hearing good things about kicker amps). I'm not sure on what type subs i'm going to get yet. I'm looking at probably 2 10's or 2 12's but other than that I'm not sure. Just looking to get something that sounds pretty good and hits pretty hard. If anyone has any suggestions on an amp and some subs then please let me know. Help a newbie out here...

    Re: Which amp to buy?

    Well say I went with either two 10" or 12" Alpine Type-R's. What would be a good amp to run those? I'm looking to probably get a kicker amp but I'm open to all suggestions. Right now I'm just not sure with what I want to go with and I'm open to any suggestions. Thanks in advance...

    smart? This guy is a newbie, as he made us aware.. He is clearly not ready to overpower his subs that MUCH & even if he WAS.. recheck his budget. Yeah clearly not enough for a Orion 2500d. Now whos the smart one?

    If I were you bro.. get a eD NINe.1 from Elemental Designs. They are $315 if you use the forum coupon code. Would be great for powering 2 10" or 12" Type R's They are well built amps, that never get hot. And on top of all of that.. they come with a 3 year warranty. Heres some more info : http://edesignaudio.com/product.php?...=Specs&cur=USD

    If you do decide to go eD.. let me know & I'll get that forum coupon code for you

    First off, how about getting some grammar? The eD NINe.1 would fit his budget/needs perfectly. It will put out 1400 watts at 1 ohm, which would be 700 to each subwoofer. Have you ever even owned a eD NINe.1? Quit comparing **** when you don't even know what your talking about.

    Viper 2500.1? First it was the Orion 2500D. Get your **** straight man.. seriously!
    Orion 2500D refurb = $399+$24 shipping through ikesound.com
    2 Alpine Type R 12" = $210 +$40 shipping through ikesound.com

    Looks like we went over his budget a tad, huh? Now what was that you said..?

    Take your own advice kid.

    Get the eD NINe.1, you'll thank me.

    Re: Which amp to buy?

    guys, we're arguing power when he hasn't even decided on drivers yet...

    poster: go listen to the subs you like, and then I reccomend choosing power. No need to get a 1000 watt amp to a woofer that needs 2000 watts, and visa versa...choose drivers you like, and prefer, then get power.

    Re: Which amp to buy?

    Well I'm thinking about actually going with two Type-R 12's. I had the Type-R's in mind before I posted but I wasnt a 100% sure what I wanted to go with. So any if anyone else has some suggestions on amps to power two Type-R's, then I'm all ears.

    How old are you seriously? Burst ya bubble? It won't? Its rated to do 1200 @ 1 ohm at 12volts(really underated) and my friend has one of these amps and his birthsheet reads 1400+ so.. like you said..

    Quote Originally Posted by SBLAZER

    Seriously. Quit talking like YOU KNOW what your talking about. Back your **** up if you want to prove something. You've prob. never even owned a eD amp in your life, nor been around one.

    Also, the Viper runs $355+shipping @ ikesound.. oh and GL trying to find one refurb'd at that price elsewhere. So $355 + $23shipping = $373 Two 12" Alpine Type R's from ikesound = $230 + $50 shipping = $280shipped..

    So let's see.. $373+$280 =$653.00. Looks like we went over his budget, *******.

    As noted above already, get the NINe.1. Not only do you NOT have to worry about getting ripped for buying a refurb/used amplifer.. but they come with a 3 year warranty. And I don't care what kinda amp it is.. alot can happen in 3 years!

    Also.. on a final note.. please ignore users like SBLAZER. All they do is go around spamming BS about **** they've never even had and dreamed of having. When I buy something, I look for something thats gonna last.. not something thats been used/refurbished and only last me a short peroid. (not saying refurbs/used items are bad) But with a 3 year warranty.. seriously, how could you go wrong?

    If you have anymore questions.. don't hesitate to PM me.

    Thanks,
    Dustin

    If your take is "be smart" maybey you should consider writing your post in friggin' english. I know....actual words take too much time to type. As for the amp part, a kicker 1200.1 would rock those things, But the others might be okay too. I'm not an spl guy, so I don't know much about what amp makes 26,000,000,000,000,000,000watts into 1ohm to drill some subs so loud you don't even need mids and highs. I do know it is a good idea to at least read your own post for errors prior to blowing it on the internet. Idiocy is neither cool, nor and excuse.
