type Rs are better. they sound cleaner and will get just as loud and dont need the power that the fubrs need

im not sure the new Rs have a 500rms rating so it would have to be a pretty big amp or 2 500w ones. 2 mrp501 would work not too sure if they sell them at best buy, or 2 power acoustik 980/2 kinda like that amp. put it through hel.l. if you could special order the 1001 v12 amp that would be awesome but i dont know your budget(exspensive amp)and i do think it will sound pretty good. just dont buy any qlogic box build your own, you will be happier and you will save money

I had 2 FUBR 10's... and trust me, you don't want these subs if you plan on giving them alot of $hit. I hooked up one to my 900w mono amp - and blew it big time!!! Then, I lowered the input level on the amp considerably and hooked up the other one - and the tinsel lead tore on the sub after about 2 weeks. I'm currently in the process of hooking up an IDMAX10v.3D2 (wish me luck - I'll let you guys know)

2 Type R's are better than one Power Acoustic. Better sound quality as well as the Type R's sound better. Also best setup for 2 Type R's is 2 of the MRD-605's.

That would be the best way if you want a 2 amp setup and all Alpine. Kenwood if you know how to bridge the 2 Type R's. If you want the easiest hook up just running left channel to one sub and right channel to one sub get the p8002.
 

Unregistered guest
so you guys would go with the type rs then
ive heard some people say they arent that great, but that was in comparison to some JL's
im not sure what i should do

they are each 500 W rms, how do you adequitley power them
would an 1000W 2 chn amp work
or no
thanks

yeah that would work. make sure the amp puts out 1000 watts at 4 ohms Then buy the 2 type R's with the DVC 2+2 layout. hook each subs voice coils in series and then hook up each sub to its own channel. It would be easier to have SVC 4 ohm but I dont remember if any of them come like that.
