    you can either wire the subs at 4ohm and 1ohm. you're pretty much fucked, either get a 1ohm stable amp, like a rockford bd10001 or get a big two channel amp and bridge it.

    bd10001 isn't 1ohm stable, but the T10001bd on the other hand, is. :hsugh:

    are the type-r's dual 2's, or dual 4's??? if they are dual 4's, get another 605(one amp/sub). if they are dual 2, you can use that amp... but you'll probablly want to get a more powerful one later.
