    Alpine Type Xs

    My buddy has two type x's that he is powering with a brutus 1606d. he now has more money and wants to re do his system and still keep the x's, so my question is what is a good amount of power to send each x in a ported box around 2 cubes for each? He's open to anything, just wants a quality amp(s). Lets get some suggestions!

    Send 1000w to each one. So One 2000w amp or two 1000 watt amps.

    The 2 sundowns would be good.

    Re: Alpine Type Xs

    2 sundowns would work...

    But he won't see much if a difference with 400 watts. Not worth spending the money IMO. First redesign the box, and figure out the best way to face the subs and port(s). That can make or break a system.

    And, I made a thread about the X's earlier... everyone said that they sounded good, but weren't loud. If he wants louder, tell him to get new subs. The people in my thread suggested IDMax, and the Fi Q, if he wants the same good quality.



    Now designing / building boxes.

    Re: Alpine Type Xs

    I know he wants it to sound amazing, but still get extremely loud. What subs would work gettin real loud and sounding good doin it? I guess I should say what kind of setup will sound better and get louder than the one he currently has?

    Re: Alpine Type Xs

    you put the power on those x's and it'll be loud and clean. maybe not as loud as some other subs, but he already has those and they are super clean SQ and decently loud if given the joose to shine

    imo that hifonics isn't giving them enough. maybe for one, but not 2

    Re: Alpine Type Xs

    he could consider buying another 1606. the x can handle all the power that amp can push at 2 ohm's. at least he wouldnt have to deal with selling anything in that case. i have one x sealed running off a 1606 and i love it.

    Re: Alpine Type Xs

    SO 2200 watts at 1 ohm for under $400 shipped to your door sound like heck of a deal or what?

    Also check the classifieds here and see if you can find a matching amp for the other sub.
