    HELP....Alpine Amp...will this do?

    I have the opportunity to buy an Alpine MRV-T502 amp for $80 (used). Below are the specs of it.

    RMS Continuous Power (Watt) (at 12V, 20-20kHz) 4 ohms Stereo (0.08% THD); 50W x 2 2ohms Stereo (0.3% THD); 100W x 2 Bridged 4 ohms (0.3%THD); 200W x 1 RMS Continuous Power (Watt) (at 14.4V, 20-20kHz) 4 ohms Stereo (0.08% THD); 75W x 2 2ohms Stereo (0.3% THD); 150W x 2 Bridged 4 ohms (0.3% THD); 300W x 1 10% T.H.D Power (Watt) (at 14.4V, 1kHz, 10% THD): 140W x 2 S/N Ratio: 105dBA MOS-FET Power Supply DC-DC PWM Power Supply Discrete Pre-amp Stage Duo-BETA Circuit STAR Circuit DC Straight MultiMode Capability BASS EQ Phase Selector Adjustable Crossover Speaker Level Input Input Mode Selector Noise Elimination Coil Gold-Plated Terminals Top Panel Power LED


    Okay, I am going to get a JL 12w3 and a Midbass kicker RMB8 for my car. I'd like to power both with this Alpine. Will this work? Please give me your suggestion/recommendation. I am totally new at this and know next to nothing about sub and amp. thx.

    Uhh, yeah...but don't mix subs...I thought you were choosing between the JL or the Kicker...drop the Kicker and keep the JLs. You will not hurt a thing by underpowering...
