    More than 200 RMS on Alpine Type S?

    OK, I was looking at a pair of Alpine Type R's run by JBL 600.0, but I didnt want to strain the amp, So I was thinking about a Pair of Alpine type S. These are 200 suggested RMS (600 Max) Each, this way I would not be straining the amp. Could I give them about 250 each without a problem? Would these still hit pretty hard if I got two 12" in a Sealed box with the same JBL 600.1 Amp?

    the only way to strain an amp is to turn the gains up too high or run it at too low of an impedance. Get the better woofer and don't worry too much about the amp.



    DEX-P9 (headunit)
    DEQ-P9 (30band eq L/R, time alignment, 36dB/oct 4 way crossover)
    Soundstream Tarantula (for subs)
    Precision Power PCX-4125 (for horns and midbasses)
    Image Dynamics CD2 comp mini horns
    Scan-Speak 7" 18W/5535A midbasses
    Subs still pending.
