    Hifonics vs Alpine

    I was wondering if people could leave feedback on either of these amps and one of them will be powering 2 Alpine Type Rs @ 2ohm.

    Hifonics BXi1610D or an Alpine MRP-M1000


    Thanks Greg

    If you got the money for the alpine, buy it. I personally prefer high quality amps over lower quality ones.

    the alpine would be cleaner and more power.

    also, a single type R could run off 1k.

    they get to sounding pretty ****** after about 500 though, 2 of them would sound great on that amp. Can't you get those alpine 1000's for like less that 400 on ebay now days?

    Re: Hifonics vs Alpine

    I've been running a Hifonics BXi608 for about a month now at 1ohm. It stays cool and I haven't had any problems with it. I couldn't tell you if the SQ would be better with another amp because I've only used the Hifonics for my RE SR10's

    I'm all about flexibility, what if you want to change things up and run 1 ohm subs some day?

    Re: Hifonics vs Alpine

    To save coin, do the Hifonics, which will be fine for the Type R's.

    Nothing wrong with the Alpine amp though, just a little more chedder.

    End of days, stop posting, for real!

    Re: Hifonics vs Alpine

    It all comes down to how much you want to spend. The alpine is going to be significantly more, for a very similar amp. What you would be paying extra for is name brand, reliability, re-sale value, and what you said, matching subs to amp (looks nice, thats about it).

    Are you really paying more for a reliability? I mean if it's more reliable...that means it will work longer. So if you buy a less reliable amp for cheaper, and you have to replace it because it is no longer reliable...what have you saved?
