the place I was gonna purchase the MB Quart amp I want is now no longer stocking them... hooray, so I am looking at a somewhat budget amplifier that I could grow with. Saw the Alpine MRP-M650 vs. Memphis 16-MCD500 - which out of the two would you say offers the cleaner, richer power? Is the Alpine overrated? I see the specs: 500w @2ohms vs 600@2ohms. I was actually wanting to slowly build a system, so this could potentially be hooked up to a 10w6v2 in the future. Thanks, I appreciate the input!

Memphis MCD500 its the new version of the MC500D which I have, and I LOVE that thing. It does way over 600rms... Also its a 2ohm amp, I ran it 1/2 a year @ 1ohm... But you need a good charging system, nothing major. :-)

Ill prob use it on some midranges soon....

yeah ive got an 1100d and it puts out like 1300 at 1.5 ohms, with some distortion, but then again im tuned to 37hz, so distortion is obvious,
it is impossable to go wrong with memphis, impossable, subs amps components all great
