    alpine type s instal

    just bought two twelve type s for a hundred bux in a sealed box. my question is i have an ma audio hc1302. its supposed to put out 1300 watts bridged at one ohm. the subs are dual four ohm. they are only rated at 200 watts rms. would it be terrible to hook them up and run them at one ohm with the gain turned down. or should i just hook up one channel to each sub. i plan on selling the subs i just bought them cause it seemed like an alright deal.

    Could you send your 200 watt rms subs 650 watts apiece with the gains turned down? Probably but if you did you would probably want to use a scope to help with the gains so you werent clipping.

    it would most likely just be better to run them on seperate channels to be on the safe side

    yeah i just hooked them up. didnt bridge them. it sounds pretty good i think. ive had audiobahns, type e, and some mtx 6000s and these hit harder then them all. (i know those subs arent too great either.) i blew the mtx's and the type e's with this amp so i dont think i will try it with the type s. now if i can just get my trunk to stop rattling.
