    Icon32 Amp for two 12" Type R's?

    Been researching stereo options for my truck....but may be getting a new vehicle. The truck woulda fit two 10's barely, but I'll have a hatchback mustang that'll have room for two 12's to play

    So the Type R's look hard to beat for the price ($115 shipped from Ike Sound). I'm looking for subs with both decent SPL and SQ and these seem to fit the bill. They are rated at 300w rms I believe. For some reason Ike only lists the dual 4 ohm subs, so I guess I'd have to run a 2 ohm load if they don't carry the dual 2 ohm R's (I emialde them asking them if they carride the dual 2 ohm R's and got no reply).

    A good option I saw was a JBL 600.1 for $210 from Ike Sound. It's 600x1 at 2 ohm and I guess would be 300x2 for two 12's at 2 ohm.

    Any ideas are greatly appreciated

    Doh, didn't do my math right. I was thinking each sub would be at 2 ohm so the amp would be run at 2 ohm.Didn't think about wiring them into only 1 channel :tard:

    Are the 's a lil underated? If two of them can handle 900w, I guess so

    Well if I get the 1200.1 JBL, it'll make 600x1 @ 4 ohms. But it'll do 1200x1 @ 2 ohm, so it seems like I'd be waisting that amp at only 4 ohm. Coustic has a 600x1 into 4 ohm that would do good I guess.

    But maybe I should just get on 15" sub and get a big power amp like the 1200.1 JBL....hhhmmm......feel free to through in any suggestions there Jmac And thanks again

    Don't go off buying the JBL.....

    Go find some dual 2ohm type R's and get this:

    Take the Hifonics samsung into consideration....
    It's rated at 225x 2 @ 2ohms but this amp is underated....a lot...... So you'll probably be giving the subs more like around 300W's each.

    And its only $275 and has better crossovers and filters than the JBL.

    spyd3r, did you mean to say 225x2 @ 1 ohm?

    What is better about it's crossover and filters?

    Thanks

    Yeah i meant 225 x 2 @ 1ohm

    Its just a better amp... Those are mosters..the GEN XI series.
    You could probably get away running the two 4ohm dvc subs... but I would strongly suggest calling them up and seeing if they can get you the type r in 2ohm DVC.

    You wouldn'y be disappointed with that amp...and its a steal for that $$$.

    Well what about the HiFonics Z6000? It says it does 600x1 @ 4 ohms for $225.....typo maybe?

    I just wonder how the 12" R's would do with 400-450w per sub. I believe I've read they are underated and people have succesfully run them with more power.....and if so, I may wanna hunt for a larger amp.....
