I am heading out on a trip tomorrow and need to pick up an amplifier tonight. I already got the deck installed and wires run, the Alpine type R 12 dual 4 ohm subwoofer in a sealed box, just need the amplifier. It will have to be one from BestBuy or CarToys because I will need to pick it up tonight or tomorrow morning.
If I remember correctly the subwoofer likes 500 W at 2 ohm, so currently I am looking at these amplifiers:
Alpine MRX-M50 500 W $230 (Car Toys)
Alpine MRX-M55 530 W $299 (Car Toys)
Alpine MRP-M500 500 W $199 (Best Buy)
JL Audio Slash v2 Series 500/1v2 500 W $487 (Car Toys)
And that's about it off the top of my head. I used to have 2 of these subs in ported boxes trying to be as loud as I could (younger), but now I am going for sound quality, in an attempt to make the music actually sound good while I am driving to work.
Any other recommendations or ideas are welcome.
