Amp(s) for two Alpine Type R 12s

Recommended Posts

Hey! I'm almost 16 and I'm saving up for a sound system for my first car. I think I want to get two Alpine Type R SWR-1243d (Alpine SWR-1243D 12" Type-R Car Subwoofer/Sub (SWR1243D)) subs but I have no idea what amp (or amps) to power them with. I'm also getting two sets of Type R speakers (Alpine SPR-13S 5-1/4" Type-R Component Speakers) that I think I'm going to power with an Alpine PDX-4.100 (Alpine PDX-4.100 (pdx4100) - 4 Channel Amplifier | Four Channel Amp - Sonic Electronix), but I don't know how to wire multiple amps to one battery. Any help or advice on what amps to use or the best ways to wire amps and subs is much appreciated. Thanks in advance!

Wiring multiple amps is easy.

 

- Power wire from + batt terminal to anl fuse holder

- Power wire from anl holder to distribution block

- Two runs of wire from distribution block (one for each amplifier)

- Ground both amps to the vehicle's chassis (use the same spot for both grounds)

 

Simple.


I shot out muh mom's vag with bossing papers in hand. :fyi:

Justyn93 -- Good call on the amp. I checked it out and it looks perfect. Would the Alpine PDX-4.100 be the best amp for my 5 1/4" Type R's or is there another that would be a better fit?

 

misfit138 -- You're right, that is simple! I have a few more questions though:

  1. What gauge wires should I run for a mono 1200w RMS amp and a 4-channel 400w RMS amp?
  2. What amp rating of fuses should I use?
  3. Do I need fuses between the distribution block and the amps?
  4. Can I use a distribution block for grounding my amps?

 

Wingman0121 -- Yeah, the older Type R's were 500w RMS but the new ones that I'm getting are 600w RMS and 1800w Peak.

1. 0 awg to d-block, 4 to amps

2. Add the on-board fuses of the amps

3. No, some d-blocks are fused though.

4. Yes, same way you do your power.

Do you guys think an MB Quart ONX1.1500D would work for the two 12" Type R's or would it have too much power for them?

Okay, I think I have it narrowed down to the Audioque AQ1200D, the Sundown Audio SAX-1200D and the Elemental Designs NINe.1. Out of these three, which would:

  1. Hit the hardest?
  2. Sound the cleanest?
  3. Be most efficient?

      Okay so I’ve had this Sundown Audio SA-10 v2 in my car for about 1-2 years. It’s been running at 1000 watts rms which is 250 over spec however everything I read up on said these subs could take way more than that. Anyways here in the past few days the sub had been cutting out making very little autible noise in the cab of my car. However it’s still moving and I’ve attached a video of what sound it makes. Thought Maybe tinsel slap or something of the sort? Don’t think it’s overpower and topping out because I’ve ran it exactly like this since I’ve had it. Could it be blown? I’m going to test impedance tomorrow and will update just looking for a quick response If anyone knows what this is.

      I have 2 Kicker comp Rs in separate prefab enclosure. they can't hit low and are very peaky..im looking for a good box design with a big port in the middle. Ive looked around a lot online and haven't been able to find anything specific other than http://www.caraudiofabrication.com/box-designs . I would be willing to pay the 65$ for the box design but is it worth it? I can use all of my trunk space so size isn't an issue.

      So swapping rides and looking at a new set up. I have a alpine pdx m6 and was looking at getting 1 or 2 10s to go in a 2015 crew cab f250 also trying to think do I want subs under or behind the seats. Was thinking 1 shallow mount type r or 2 alpine swt ts4 I have a budget of around 400. Anything i should be considering. Also ported or sealed for the box?
      Listen to mostly country, rock and rap.
      Budget $400 +or- 100 if it make it or break it
      Amp is pdx m6 so 600 rms at 4 or 2 
      Hope that gets me in line with the sticky

      Helloooooo
      Just to be clear i literally know nothing about car audio installations and i need help so i came here.
      I have a renault clio hatchback 2007 and i am wishing to install the skar audio spx-65c component system to the vehicle
      i dont want it to be runnning very loud, so i would like to stick to the stock amplifier if that is possible with the components i have brought (but only if it would work). Also how would i go about wiring up the external crossovers to the items that come stock in the car?
      and finally...
      what will i have to change / buy (besides from the mountings in the door) to make all the of this work?
      any help is greatly appreciated
