    Alpine MRD-M1005. Better amp or price?

    Alrighty, im building my box this weekend or next for my 3 10" Alpine SWR-1024s. I was thinking about this amp MRD-M1005. This looks like a really nice amp, however it is a bit on the pricey side.
    This is the cheapest i can find it.

    First is this a good choice for my setup, secondly is there a better price or alternitive that i should look at?
    Im stationed in germany so anything i buy would have to be from a site that ships to APOs. Thanks guys.

    So its one channel?

    I guess you're gonna run your subs in series then? If you do go with that amp

    $300 isnt bad

    if your looking for more power, you might catch an orion 2500d for $350 used. I don't know how well those 10s will take it. If your looking for a different amp, cheaper that will do rated power, you can look at hifonics bxi1206, which will do 1200rms @1ohm or even the bxi1606, which will do 1600@1ohm. the bxi1206 is a little over 200, while the bxi1606 is 250. Much cheaper than that alpine amp. IMO, i think alpine amps are overpriced.

    Yeah im thinking i should go ahead and buy it, im not really looking for much more power because i dont want to damage my speakers, however i am looking for a bit more than i need. Also im using a pretty cheap amp for the time being, which is a PA 1200W Gothic series amp. It hits but i know that there is much better quality out there to be had. I know it can sound alot cleaner than it does. The type-rs are the first Alpine made peice of hardware ive ever own and im very impressed. I know type-rs get alot of hype and such as that, i i would be interested to see another set of 10" do what mine do in a sealed box (changing that very soon) with an amp such as the one im using. Im digging the alpine stuff, and i think i may buy a head unit from them as well. Thanks guys.
