    2 Alpine Type Rs in a single cab

    Im looking at getting 2 12" Alpine Typr R subs in my single cab F-150. THe subs are set at 2 ohms with 1000 watts peak in a ported box. Im not sure how many cubic feet the box will be yet but i guess 4 to 5 ft, but im really not sure. The 3 amps im looking at getting are Coustic 801DB, Audiobahn A8000T, or the Pioneer GM-D510M. Im going to use a pair of the amps, ya know one amp per sub. Does this sound right, is there anything else i should look at? Im on a $300 budget for the amps and im set on the subs. IM currently running four 5x7 Polk Audio DB 570s with an Alpine 9830 head unit. Oh im going to run the amps at 2 ohms just that peice of info. So i guess what im asking is an opinion on the 3 amps im looking at and what they may sound like at the end. THANKS IN ADVANCE!

    Re: 2 Alpine Type Rs in a single cab

    Dont put two of any of those amps to each sub. Peak power is 1000 watts but if u give one that much power they will blow. When powering subs give them somewhere close to their rms rating. Give them about 400 watts rms and u will be perfect. Ne thing over about 600 watts rms will blow them quick. I actually own a pair of 12 inch type r's and i have only 300 watts rms going to each and it bumps very nicely tho they are just a lil underpowered. Im sure alot of people on here can recommend better amps for ur situation. Hope this helps

    Re: 2 Alpine Type Rs in a single cab

    I have the bench seating in my truck, so ill have enough room. I have the deminions of the box somewere. Is there anymore more amps i could get? Icant buy anything off of Ebay because of the threat of being ripped. If i get a single amp i can afford to spend $550 so whitch ever would be the best for my situation. THx for the opinions, keep em coming
