    Recommended Amp Setup for 2x 12" Alpine Type R SWR-12D2

    Hello, I am new to this site. I am wondering if I could seek some help here in finding a good quality
    amp. Price range is not a factor, I just want the best for my dollar. I am looking at getting 2 SWR-12D2.
    It's a 2 ohm sub, I would prefer just to run one amp versus powering each with one. What are some of your personal preferences?
    And what are some good 12" subs that hit pretty solid, I like the kicker L5 but the Alpine Type R are a very good sub from specs and reviews, and she hits pretty **** hard. Thank you for assisting and i'm looking forward to using this site more often.

    Welcome! The trouble you're going to find yourself in is finding that kind of power at 2ohms or beefing up your electrical to handle a half-ohm load. I would suggest trying to find something like a MMATS 2000.2 used, personally. If you could swap the D2 subs for D4, you would have a much easier time finding 2K@1ohm instead.

    get d4 as you will have a lot more options for power . hard to find an amp at 2 ohms

    Alpine SWR-12D4 Component Car Subwoofers at Onlinecarstereo.com

    2 of these on

    You guys are quite right. I think it'd make more sense to go with the 4 ohm. If I am correct , DTR1.2200D - Soundstream Monoblock 2200 Watt , Will be a good amp , I hear good things from Soundstream and this website has wicked deals.

    You guys are quite right. I think it'd make more sense to go with the 4 ohm. And the Cadence sub is on a very good deal on ebay too I see. So this amp is gonna give me more than enough power which is great, now can I run a 1 Channel Amp with these two 4 ohm subs? Haven't really looked at that end of it yet.
