    Alpine 1500 Watts x 1 into 4 Ohms
    2400 Watts x 1 into 2 Ohms

    I prefer the Alpine though it is 100 bucks more. I would run it at 4 with 750 on each sub. I could go up to sundown x series at 2 ohm, or add two more sa12's in the future
    thats actually a really good amp and decently efficient at 4 ohm 87%iirc

    that soundstream is junk in comparison

    I am pretty much sold on the Alpine, besides, everything else in the system is and will be Alpine except the subs.
