Re: alpine mrd-m1000 help???
The Alpine is a good amp, but I've heard better. My friend works at Ultimate Electronics here in Las Vegas, and they have the Alpine on display as well as others. I'm not a huge Rockford fan but the BD1001 made the Alpine sound like the Alpine was a 500w instead of 1000w. The Alpine has good tuning features but when a $550 amp beats a $900 amp, it's sad.
BTW, they were all playing on two Infinity Perfect 12"s at the same 2 ohm load.
Shop around, Retail is always too much!!!!
Upfront Bass is your friend.
