    What kind of power are you going to be running to it and what size is the type r? What kind of music do you listen to?

    I'm going to say he probably listens to a lot of metal. Hence, the screen name. I'd say 2 cubes at 34 is decent for a lot of applications. I wouldn't give it any less room. I don't care what Alpine specs say. They like more room than 1.6.

    it does if you give it the power if not it wont. it is a power hungry hog but sounds amazing with the right power. my fav 1500 rms ever it sounded so sweet but it needed extra batteries and big 3

    see its a class a/b amp the z1200 or z777-d were the class d and class g amps. the 777-d was supposedly a hybrid but was a lot more money
