    What amp should I get for my type R?

    Thinking about getting a alpine type-R (12in) so I was wondering what type of amp should I get to go with it? A mono 1000 watt?

    Thanks!

    1000 watt? That sub is rated at 500...I know they can handle more (I have 2 of them) but 1000 is pushing it.

    I've got an underatted memphis amp that will put out more than 500 I could sell you...Or an MTX 800 watt amp. PM me if your interested in either

    for a single 12 id look for something that puts out 700 ish RMS. a kicker 750 would be perfect i would say.

    But if I got a kicker 750 watt amp, the sub wont get blown or anything would it, if the type r is rated at 500 watts? Sorry, I am completely new to this. :/

    Re: What amp should I get for my type R?

    not if you set the gain correctly. even if you got a 500 watt amp you could blow the sub if you do not set the amp up correctly. are you going to be installing them your self?

    for that kicker amp make sure you get a dual 4 ohm type r

    if you having someone install it that knows what there doing they should be able to set the amp properly.

    750 seems reasonable. I had mine running off a kicker 1200.1

    Just make sure whoever installs it knows what they're doing...if your there, make sure they set the gains with a multimeter!

    Re: What amp should I get for my type R?

    Ok sounds good, but why should I get a 4ohm instead of 2? and wouldn't that mean that I only have 350 watts powered to it at the ohm speed? Should I get a bigger amp then that then?

    I hate having to ask so many questions, but everyone starts somewhere :P

    Thanks!

    type Rs are dual voice coil so to use that amp to potential you would want the dual 4 ohm sub and wire it down to 2 ohm.

    Re: What amp should I get for my type R?

    Alright thanks a lot. So that obviously isn't going to damage it and give it some serious bump for a 12'? And I am having my uncle install it for me (hes a mechanic) so what type of install kit should I look for? Or would you recommend a professional installation.
