i'm pretty new to this car audio stuff. i'm lookin for a system to put into a dodge charger r/t. i had 2 alpine swx-1243D powered by 2 hifonic brutus 2010d 2000 watt amps picked out. but was told these amps were too much power for the speakers which have a 3000watt max. i planned on using a battery isolator with a secondary battery but heard i could lose a little power doin so. i'm gettin a custom made ported box for the subs. was gonna wire the subs in parallel which would get 1300 watts from each amp to each sub. i'm lookin to get a ton of bass. mainly listen to rap. so i have a couple of questions.

are the amps really too strong for the speakers? if so why?
would i be better goin with 1 amp?
would i be better goin with a diff sub/amp setup?

just use one of those amps and wire it down to 1 ohm. You will same 250 and use less electrical. It'll be a 2000 watt rms system and should beat hard. Any preference for any of the brands? Look to Fi, Treo, Audioque, DD, and some other more obscure names and you won't be let down.

i like alpine a lot. i had 2 type r's in my last car. with only a 650watt amp(i believe. may have been 700) and they hit pretty hard. i looked at solo-baric l7 and memphis mojo. memphis was little more than i want to spend.

i say **** it and hook both of the amps up to a nice beefy woofer. those amps are a little overrated but im almost positive they put out a clean 1200-1600w rms. that being said, id go with a FI btl or maybe even a sundown nightshade. Btl's would love to see 2400-3000 watts rms.
