    Best amp for a 12" Type R?

    What would be the best amp to really make my single 12" type R really bump but not blow? In the future I am considering getting a second so keep that in mind. I have been looking at the jbl bp600.1 and ALPINE MRD-M300. I can get those for around $200 on ebay and that's about my budget right now. I have the 4 ohm version type r, this can be wired to 4 ohm and 2 ohms correct?


    Thanks in advance for your help!

    not correct, that sub is a d4 and can be wired at 2 or 8 ohm

    So if I hook up a jbl bp600.1 to 1 Type R it would be sending it 600 watts right? Is the too many to send to this sub?

    yes it would send it 600 watts...as for it being too much, it depends. i konw people that have sent type r's 600 watts all day without damaging it and other taht send it under 500 watts and blow them. it depends on how you have the gains set and your install and a bunch of other factors. if your unexperienced and wouldn't know how to set the gains and such properly...i wouldnt go with that much power.

    Alpine Type R have 300w RMS/1000w Peak. So 600w would be double the RMS but under the peak. It wouldn't be too bad, but you might blow your sub quicker.

    peek ratings are pointless in car audio. i wouldnt give it that much but if you do watch the gains. and volume

    i would get the alpine amp, u dont wana send 600 to the Type R and since u have the 4ohm version u wont be able to wire it to 300 watts. Pick up another type R and get the JBL 600 then ull be happy.
