    Are you running your subs @1ohm? I ran my Type Rs when I had them off a Hifonics Brutus 1200w, and I'm running my LIs off it now. It's a pretty decent little amp, and it fits in your price range.

    He cannot run them at 1 ohm - he can run 2 or 8 ohms

    That is why I recommended that MB Quart as it has pretty good output at 2 ohms.

    2 of them? Why not? I ran mine at 1ohm....

    2 d4s wire down to 1ohm in parallel. Right???

    Yes Miss Black - if he has Dual 4 ohm then he can run them at 1 or 4 ohms.

    I think the OP needs to clarify what he has (dual or single 4 ohm drivers) I have never ran Alpine subs so I am not sure if they are all DVC's although a quick look on sonix looks like they are all DVC's

    Either way the amp I linked is a solid unit and would last for a long time and is in his budget.
