    Need some help for my set up..

    I have 2 12" dual 4 ohm type R's...right now i have both hooked up to the Alpine v12 MRD-M605 amp, wired at 4 ohms...i fill they need more power though...Im looking into getting either the Orion 1200d or the 2500d amp and wiring them to 1 ohm....Which Orion amp would be better if Im listen to my stereo on a daily bases? or should i just get another v12 amp and hook each sub up to the 2 amps at 2 ohms each? Also what would be a good power source? Right now I only have my stock battery (i have a honda civic) and a 1 fared cap. should i go with another 1 fared cap if its more power? Any suggestions? Thanks for the help

    first off you are way underpowering those subs with the 605, i'd say get the 1200 because the 2400 is a little much for your electrical system, do the big three and check into an optima battery or maybe a higher output alternator

    as far as the capacitor goes, around here its gonna be 50/50, some say you need it, some say you don't

    you dont need to upgrade your cap, you actually dont need a cap. do the big 3 and get a nice battery.

    and get the 1200D
