depends on ur amp. if u have a cheap amp like pyramid, it will take more than 500, but JL amps or a high-end brand like that gives out a legit 500 watts. i Would buy a top brand amp and give it 500 just to be safe if i was you. overpowering ur sub is a very good way to f uck it up....and it will sound bad

get a JL 500/1 amp. A cheap brand such as pyramid will say their $30 amp delivers 1000RMS but it isn't. Get a top brand amp and give it 500 watts. You don't want to overpower your subs

its good to give your amp a little breathing room also. if the sub is rated at 1000 rms putting 1100-1200 rms to it is fine just dont go crazy with the gains.

hifonics tx1005 puts out 1000rms but hifnoics is known to put out about 80% so id get the tx1505 which will power them around 1200-1300RMS

i would not suggest the m350. not enough power for 1, not even close for 2.

maybe an MRD-M1005 if they are dual 2ohm subs. or a orion 1200d if they are dual 4ohm subs.

sort of OT, but i was planning to get 2 type r's also and no clue which amp to go with, how do we know if there dual 2ohm or dual 4ohm subs? Oo

Alpine amps aren't that great, and they're a bit pricey for how they perform.

if they are both dvc4ohm i would suggest you get the RE 12.1 amp. im not sure if alpine does this but some companeys put on the magnet if there 4ohm or 2ohm.

i used to power 2 12" type Rs with a kicker kx1200.1 and the subs handled it just fine. my kicker was 1430wrms at 14.4v. besides its always good to have a little headroom.
