    Powering 2 12" Alpine Type R's

    I have two Alpine Type R's in the mail from ikesound.com. Magnolia Hi-Fi has pretty much convinced me that the best amp to power them (that's in my price-range) is a 500W Alpine mono-block amp. I am most impressed by its sound and push on the subs. However, it's $500 retail. Do you think that would be a good buy? What else would be a good buy that would offer me good SQ and SPL in a decent blend that's $500 or less? I appreciate all comments, except those made by player haters.

    I'm powering one Type R with a JBL600.1. The JBL amps are a good buy for a cheaper price.

    Hey Man for the money I would probably try the infinity betadigi 100 amp...its 100x2 at 4ohms, 200x2 at 2ohms and 400x1 at 4ohms....the amp retails for 600$, but I know where you can pick them up for 100$ each?? 1 to each alpine type-r would probably slam pretty hard!!

    that is a good idea, I feel that if you have a chance and the money and the current go one amp per Sub, but I have seen those amps all over the place but never seen them in action, but Infinity has always been great equipment
