I go by the name of GeRm and reside in miami fl...this will be my first post on this forum.
I currently have a 1999 ford explorer and have a Alpine MRP-M500 Amp pushing 500rms @2ohms into a 12 inch Alpine Type-R.
The Alpine woofer seems to be damaged (Woofer sounds like something is hitting on the cone when it resonates)This happened like 2 weeks ago....if i pull the gain back on the amp its either, No bump in the car,or if i crank the gain it hits but i hear the knocking noise. I have had a audio installer listen to it and he says my woofer is gone. so right now i have the gain on 75%...Bass boost on 0...and the LP on 80hz.
Now what i am thinking of getting is this
Amazon.com: Kicker 07DC122 Dual Comp 12-Inch 2-Ohm Subwoofers In Vented Box: Automotive
Each speaker is rated at 150w rms...which in total is 300rms @2 ohms. If i run my amp at 500rms what are the chances of me blowing those subs?. I'm sure the gain plays a factor here
Also would those 2 kickers in that box hit harder than than one alpine type-r 12 in a sealed enclosure (given the alpine wasnt damaged)?...I don't want monstrous bass...but i want enough to maybe shake the trunk a bit.
I'd appreciate the knowledge and feedback
