    The alpine R's are very good subs but stay away from the sony amps, they are unreliable peices of garbage, you would be better off with the visonic amp.

    Eahh thats the worse reason int he world to settle with sony or visonx amps. THe older mobel ES amps are really not bad (they dont cool well though)

    Type R's are very nice. I like them a lot, the zeb has them for a pretty good price.

    Ive heard a few various storys on drop out<br />But nothign really to bad. OVer all i like them. THey are clean and they get pr etty loud

    Enjoy

    Dont get an amp because its red...thats blatenly homoerotic, get a good amp and paint it or something

    Oh ya how much difference is the DVC dual 4 ohm and the 4 ohm SVC I will buy the DVC but they are harder to come buy but I just thought I would ask.

    Firstly $125.00 will not get you a quality 800 watt amp. However, for a little more you could look into a few of these amps- they should power a pair of Type R's quite well:<br /><br />Phoeinx Gold XS2500<br />Harrison Labs AE800.2<br />Rockford Fosgate bd500.1<br />JL Audio 500/1<br />Cadence A5HC<br /><br />Just a start---><br /><br />Also, the only real advantage of having DVC speakers is system versatility. The DVC's would give you several more wiring options for different impedence loads to the amplifier. If you are looking to basically hook them up to a halfway decent amp and let them go- the SVC's should suffice well. All depends on how egar you are in your system expansion goals.<br /><br />Take it easy,<br />-zane
