I was going to a get a kicker kx 1200.1 or the orion 1200D

Those two amps are the CORRECT ones for a 1242D Alpine R correct?

Don't want to have this stuff at my doorstep to see I ordered the wrong parts!!!

is there any problem with hooking up the orion 1200d to 2 alpine type r subs. Because the orion will be giving 600w to each sub, bu it says each sub is rated at 500rms a piece. Will giving the subs to much power damage them in any way?

Hey Rovin... you followed both my posts about the subs I want/AMP

I will be ok with the Kicker or the Orion and the 1242D's ya? And then have my local car shop here install everything down to 1 ohm?

go with the orion it is rated at 13.8 which is closer to what your car prob, puts out anyway.

No its not that I don't think I couldn't do it myself, because I did help my friend install whats in my car now, I would just feel more comfortable with an expert doing it rather than myself.

TY - My car (99 Camry 2.2L) is having some electrical system problems. New alternator from Nathan coming soon (180A). :-)

Nice to spend the money on myself now that I don't have a biotch girlfriend sucking it away lol.

At least your honest with yourself, i like that, hey i know quite a bit, but am never afraid to ask someone else, no on ever knows all this stuff. you will be happy with either amp, i ran oruion for ahile and like there stuff, if i had my choioce, i would get the Old Orion HCCA 2100 it is a beast..... and goes down to .5ohm. to much for those, but a great amp anyway.

well since yo uare on and we are posting real quick...

When this new alternator comes and I take it to my mechanic... can i tell him to upgrade my "big 3" as well. And how will I need to wire these 2 R's together w/ the amp to make it a 1ohm load?

Maybe if I do get all this figured out I will attempt to do it myself. :-)

As far as the amp goes - whatever is cheaper is what I'll get. So far Kicker is cheaper @ 379.5 on ebay.... and there is only a few 1200D's but they are 400+

have you looked at the memphis amps, like the 1000d or the 1500d it puts out 1100w at 13.8volts, and is a top notch amp as well and the subs if dual 4 are ran in series, see 12volt.com and find subwoofer wiring in left column.

according to the12volt.com, for 2 dual 4OHM subs they gotta be run para/para for 1ohm load unless I did the wrong thing...

in case the jumpers confuse you a little...
here's what I did:

mono amp + & - to left voice coil, jumpers to right coil ( + to +, - to -), then speaker wire from right coil to other sub's left coil, jumpers to right coil (same as above).

That's it.
