    Re: wtb: what amp to buy

    yes the seat moving forward and back ,they should move independently ,so if you do a box with sub behind the pass seat then you wont have a mounting depth issue ,and you can run a better sub than what you have now. and make a small amp area to mount the amp behind the drivers seat .port the box facing drivers side ,if done right it will be louder than your 2 12's you have in a sealed box now ,and will take more power as well
    send me a pm with a budget for the amp sub and box with wires and i'll see what i can work up for you

    Re: wtb: what amp to buy

    2000 watts seems a little overkill for those subs. It doesnt sound like you upgrading cuz of space. You can find a 1000 watt amp for around 250 then put the other 250 towards something else like deadening or a used alt or a top notch enclosure.

    Re: wtb: what amp to buy

    If you have the 3rd gen sws12 they are 300w rms if you have the 4th gen sws12 there 500w rms. I have overpowered woofers before not 400watts though and certainly not 600 watts. It's your money and your gear you asked for input that's the Main thing that jumps out at me if you overpower your subs by 600 watts apiece you may be shopping for new subs.

    you don't NEED that much power to make a set of S-types perform... A good solid 1K is plenty, I've seen a lot less really push those subs hard... A QUALITY 2k+ amp will destroy those subs...

    How much will that run you? I personally would spend a little more and get an AQ 2200, or an AB amp... it will last longer and out perform that planet audio all day every day...

    Re: wtb: what amp to buy

    The alpines are good subs. If you bought a quality 1000 watt amp built a box to spec with how small the cab of that truck is you would be surprised how loud it will be. Somebody else touched on this but Chevy charging systems are pitiful. You will never see 2000 watts out of an amp unless you upgrade your alt and battery. For 500 bucks you could find a used zed Minotaur or a jl audio 1000/1v2 both of those are gonna sound better than any 2000 watt amp you find for the same price.
