I just got two new Alpine swr12d2's hooked up to a kicker zxs1500.1. They have only been hooked up for about three weeks or so, and I believe one of the voice coils is already blown on one of the subs. They are seeing less than 800 Watts per sub, and they are rated to handle 1000 rms. Anyone looking into buying these subs be very cautious about how much power you give them.
I'm talking to the eBay store as we speak about warranty covering them.
