    choices

    mtx, rockford fosgate, eclipse, sony, jl, alpine

    powering 2 alpine type r subs

    price range $200-300 american. id like to buy this locally so i can get the warranty where i can just take it back and exchange it. last resort would to buy what you all suggest, a jbl 600.1 off ebay or something.

    i have to get the amp decided before i can buy the subs so i can know wether i need to buy the 2ohm dvcs or 4ohm dvcs.

    attn loudsystem :o

    Well from your list, I would take out sony, and JL seems to be out of your price range. It's funny because I personally would recommend JL, they make a HELL of an amp.

    Also, you wouldn't need to worry about what type of coils to buy because the JL puts out rated power at 1(1.5)-4 ohms.

    If not JL, then next in your list would probably be Mtx. I used to have the 6500d and it was a heck of an amp too. Very powerful :). I don't know too much about their mono amps so can't help you there, but I love Eclipse equipment (as you can tell from my name).

    Not too familiar with Alpine amps, I think you can do better than fosgate.

    I was just using the brands you listed, there are many more great brands out there.

    I've had an eclipse amp before that powered my front stage, it was awesome. I don't know

    I would say JL, but it's not in that price range.

    MTX

    I'm running an MTX 6500D on my two Alpine SWR-1021D subs and absolutely love it. So that would be my vote.
