    Re: Alpine X with Amp help..

    if its 4 ohm DVC, you can run the amp at either 2 or 8 ohms.

    ya that amp will run it for sure when you use that amp at 2 ohms it will send out 1000 rms and wire your subs also to 2 ohm..

    check this wiring guide http://forums.caraudio.com/vb/showthread.php?t=31984

    i wouldnt buy that amp, i dont really like it, just my opinion though, you can get much better for the price if you shop around.

    well it says it puts out about 1000w at 2 ohm tried running it at 1ohm clamped it did about 880 or something like that due to impedence rise it was somewhere around 2ohm dont remember exact.
