    I need a little help with getting an amp-

    I have 2 alpine type r's in a ported box (SWR-1222D) 2 ohm, dual coil subs. I need help picking out an amp, I have both the subs wired in series so they're 4 ohms. I've been looking at the MRP-M1000 but I'm not sure if it would sound good & hit hard if I ran them parrallel at 2 ohms to the amp. I'm new & just need some help with getting the perfect amp, & how to wire it good so it sounds perfect!

    Your subs will either be wired at .5 or 2... 2 ohms is going to be your best option so what do you have to spend?

    Re: I need a little help with getting an amp-

    Isn't that way to much? Like I said I'm new to this. The mrp-1000 at 1000 watts at 2 ohms, with my 2 subs on it 1 channel with them both getting 500 watts wouldn't be good? They say 200-500 watts

    Yeah I guess I can agree with that. But wouldn't 500 at each be perfect? I'm not trying to shake my whole city haha, just trying to have them bump pretty loud & last me a while.

    Do you have anything you can suggest I run I 2 alpine type r's, 2 ohm dual coil, 200-500 watts on, that's less than $350.
