i would definantly go with the alpine. i have had only good experiences with the V12 line of alpine amps. i try to stay away from rockford unless you are talking about the previous generation amps, which are very nice. the new line is crap IMO.

Either one is a great choice. Since you are going with Alpine for subs might as well go with Alpine for an amp as well though. RF does make some nice a$$ amps though, they always have and are almost always underrated.

as a rule of thumb in the audio industry it is better to buy all the same brand equipment. why? these companies test they products on their own products. since you arent governed by price i would go with the alpine amp

well sure they test it on there own stuff, but you do not need everything to be the same brand.

Ya, the good deal, wasn't as good as i thought. It wasn't bad, i mean for the MVRT420 model, they were askin $$400 canadian, which is quite a lot off of the retail, but thats still a fair bit of cash. I settled with the T320, and i'm stoked to get it in and start running my system. Thanks for the help!

Well, when i went in yesterday, they said they had shut down two of their stores, and left three of them still up. So the reason for the sale is that they are getting the two other stores stuff to sell. So they're trying to get rid of it for cheap. They have a whole crap load of Xtant subs, a few type R's a few type S's and a bunch of pheonix stuff. I didn't really check out the HU's as i dont need one, but everything else was a pretty good deal. I dont know if you've ever heard of them, but its from a company called International Stereo. I think they're all over canada, and maybe in the US but i could be wrong.

The surprise wasn’t that they didn’t offer one…it’s how much engineering went into making it easily replaceable, and then not offering one. Maybe it’s something with the voice coil gapping. Also...

Thanks ya. Just pulled the trigger on the 1500BDCP because of the constant power that RF developed to help with the ohm rise.

I would pull it and bench test it with a 12v battery. Ive had Bulbs burn out in the past and the amplifier works excellent. They will burn out at times. Electronics dont last forever, but it is...
