    Need help with Amps...

    Hey guys I'm new to this forum and had some questions about Amps. I have 2 12" alpine type-E subs, max rms is 250watts. I currently am running a dual 400 watt 2 channel amp. What would be the best setup for me? I want my subs at their full potential. But not where they won't last long. I'd like to run a mono block amp. Thank you.

    If you're talking 2 4 ohm SVC subs then this amp is perfect: JBL GTO-501EZ

    $200 and you get a super clean and reliable 500W RMS with a dead simple gain setup using the included test CD. Your subs will love it.

    Re: Need help with Amps...

    why dont you just change your whole sub stage, change the subs and the amp to a bigger like 1k or 1.5k wattage, theres a good sale on the c2 audio for $99 w free ship a sub dvc 4ohm or get a bigger amp first and wire it to 2ohm for those 2 svc 4ohm and then when you have the money to get a better sub you dont have to change amps most 1000w to 1500w should be able to run your 2 svc at 2ohm or even 8 ohm to be conservative
