    New system. Need advice! Type r 12's

    Hey guys, I'm new to the forums but I need some advice on a new system for a 2008 altima.
    I'm getting two Alpine Type r 12's. (SWR-12D4) Dual voice coil - 4 ohms - 600 RMS each. I'm also getting a Kenwood DDX419 head unit.

    I'm wanting to get a Hifonics Brutus BRZ1200.1D. 1200W RMS, 1-Channel Monoblock Super Class D Amplifier w/ 0 AWG Amp Kit. It's $200 and I'll get the amp and necessary wiring included. (Sonicelectronix deal)

    I also want a ported box. Either a custom built or prefab. I'm NOT going to build my own however, and I'm new to car audio so I'm going to have everything installed by an audio shop, etc.

    I would really appreciate any advice on the amp+amp kit and enclosure options.
    Open to suggestions. Hoping to spend around $300-400 on the amp and enclosure combined.
    thanks guys!

    That amp will not push the type r's to their best possible output. There are many people who can build you a custom box on here @pro-rabbit @dbeez

    While that amp my not be optimal it will get the job done. Just ensure you get an enclosure that is designed to be efficient and you should be good to go.

    That sub/amp combo should suit. Deffinately invest in a custom box tho. Can't stress that enough.

    Pro rabbit/dbeez, how much for a dual 12" ported box that will fit in my truck?

    Also, can anyone suggest a better amp that isn't much more expensive?
