    Will a RF bd500.1 power two type r's?

    Just like the title will my punch bd500.1 be able to power two 12" type r's? I had two MTX 6000 hooked up before and it powered them perfectly. If not what subs would you recogmend for me? Also I dont want just a single sub.

    It will run one of them fine, but not two. You need atleast twice that power to give them what they need.

    How do you think it would sound? I've heard that "underpowering" subs will blow them then I've heard that they wont. I really like the amp I have now and dont really want to upgrade it but my old mtx 6000 blew and now I need some subs what would you recogemend I get to go with the amp I have now?
    thanks guys.

    if you can, get an identical amp, and then power the 2 type R's, otherwise. Just get 1 type R for that amp. Why don't you want a single sub setup?

    Yea thats what I was thinking of doing, I dont want a single sub because I already have a custom made box for my two and I dont really have the spare time to make another one.

    Ok soo if I where to pick up another rf bd 500.1 then run one to each sub would that be enough power? Because they only put out about 250 into 4 ohms(I believe) how would I wire it down to 2 ohms?

    just hook the amp up and see if you like it..i had a bd500 years back and it was a pretty strong amp.

    its going to be just as loud with 2 subs off 1 amp, compared to 1 off 1 amp..so just try it out.
