    Help with system setup (subs and amp)

    I am thinking about 2 12" subs. Are Alpine Type-R's or Infinity Perfects pretty good? I mostly listen to R&B and Club type music. So I'd want something that would hit hard and deep.
    The car is a BMW 325is. I would like to go with a sealed box to save space. I just bought a JBL1200.1 amp to power whatever subs I get.
    Any Suggestions?

    both have very very good SQ...with pretty good SPL. You would be happy with either of these subs. I would say go with the perfects. But, if you find a better deal on the alpines...go with them

    Yeah, I figured someone would come out and say those. I wish those subs would have some type of design on them.
    I thought about the Shivas but I need some subs that look better since I will be doing a show type install.
    ****, tough decision.

    Yeah, I'm thinking about painting them or make them look better somehow. Would the JBL1200.1 be a good amp for two 12" Shivas? How should I wire them and how much RMS wattage would be going into each?
    Thanks.

    Parallel wiring is where the negative runs to every negative post and the positive runs to every positive post, right?
    So I would end up with a 1 0hm load, therefore be pushing about 300 watts into each sub, right????
    Thanks.
