im running an alpine mrd-m500 v12 amp. hits hard and i like it. if you want to be crazy loud, get the new alpine mrd-m1000 v12 amp or the old alpine mrv-1507 v12 amp. all three are good choices.

the mrd-m500 is a one channel amp right? So how do you run the amp to two different subs? And isnt the type R's 300 watts rms? So wouldn't u be underpowering the subs with ur setup Kaidoy?

yes the m500 is a one channel, mono amp. you take the wire running from the amp and connect the positive and negative ends to the corresponding ends on the first subwoofer. then, you take an extra piece of wire and connect the positive and negative ends of the first subwoofer to the corresponding ends of the second subwoofer.

no, i am not underpowering my subs SiLvAaCCoRdv6. im running the amp at a 2-ohm load so it produces 900 watts at peak. i never use all of it though. i keep my sub control to about 1/2 or 3/4 and it makes my whole car rattle. i only turn it all the way over when im leaving parking lots or whatever and it's extremely loud. my oem spoiler on my trunk and license plate both sound like it's going to fly off. also, my rear deck rattles so much that it sounds as if my rear window is gonna break (which i hope won't happen).

hope this helps.

type R's are made in both 2-ohm and 4-ohm impedence. most subwoofers are.

ohm is a unit of electrical resistance.

mono just means one, single, etc.

crossovers are when you have the ability to decide the waves you want the subs to produce (i think). for example, anything below 60 hz, or 80 hz, or 100 hz, etc.

someone correct me if i'm wrong...im only 75% sure of my answer.
