Need Amp Advice

I need to find out what amp, for under $500, will be the best at powering my two Pioneer 10” subs? So far I have been recommended the Alpine MRP-M350, or the Coustic 401DB Monoblock. Which would be better out of these two, or has anyone got any other suggestions? The subs are rated at 350wrms. Thanks.

Re: Need Amp Advice

Are they going to be run in series or parallel, if you got a amp load stable at 2 ohms you could go in series.

Re: Need Amp Advice

Have you thought about running a 2 channel and bridging it? Previously, i was running an alpine d class mono (it was stolen), and im now getting more power out of a clarion 2 channel (bridged, 2 ohm load), plus, it cost half the price. Just an idea.

Re: Need Amp Advice

My amp will be powering a similar setup soon, It is a clarion V-Net 4100, i will be bridging two of the channels and using that to power the twin 10" subs i will be purchasing within the next week or two. Only problem is i have to get some higher grade subs (shitty kickers will apparently blow under that power) make sure that you get an amp that is matched to the subs you have, I would say that 200w rms would be the upper limit to power both of them.

I was told pioneer VCCS 10"'s would only just be alright to handle the 200w rms that i will be putting in. Not sure if you have them or their better 10" 's though.

Re: Need Amp Advice

ok, i rekon go for one of these
http://www.strathfield.com/Product.asp?ProdID=82

they are $229 and when bridged will give you areound 200wrms to each driver.(at 4ohms)
and will use less than 1/2 of your $500 budget =)

the difference between 200wrms and 300wrms is minimal. so u save alot of money and you have no chance of blowinf up your drivers, just dont wreck the amp =P

Re: Need Amp Advice

why not try a Response 4x100WRMS car amp.... havent used one yet myself but ive got a mate who works as an installer, an he say there great. they bridge out to 2 x 300 WRMS so they should put your subs through there paces....and if u go here u can get them for ~$355 ----> http://www.advanceae.com.au/

Re: Need Amp Advice

Turbo 6 : I've have a response 4*100wrms amp and i'm running two 10" pioneer vccs subs with it (bridged like Blue XF said). These subs are rated @ 250wrms i think and the response amp handles them really well. Goes great and i doubt you'd get a more powerful amp for the price...unless maybe u went second hand. If the box is well made and the amp is setup right you should have some nice bass with this setup. Unless you wanted to go for a name brand then whatever a decent car audio place suggests, i spose......not boss tho......i said decent.
