if you pay 300+ for it, not worth it. good amp? maybe for people who want style and a custom looking car. but I wouldn't use it for a spl, sql system. I rather get something else.

what are you guys talking about? that alpine amp is alot better than thoes hifonics crap. i have the mrd and my friend bought the pdx, and neither one of them is as bad as you make them seem. i bet most of you have never even heard one. the pdx is better than the mrd more wattage. they never cut off over heat ect. there completly digital so if you hook two together you can have the exact same gaine and stuff with ease. i bought my mrd for roughly 240 i have never had a problem with it. and there slighty under rated my mrd is rated at 1126rms

of course not. just look at the specs. jl always puts out 1000w. no matter what ohm or voltage.


dont take that to literal. but basically true

take one look at the prices also


and no it doesn't get hot it has duel fans and crap and amps dont make daily driving subs do

oh god, not the daily driving question again. asking about "is it good enough for a daily driver" is about the same as asking a subs sq, everyone is different. what may be a good dd for you might be to loud/not loud enough for someone else. but yes a pair of 10w6's will make a nice daily driver imo. that alpine as good as a jl 1000/1, far from it. jl amps own alpine, but the alpine will still get the job done nicely and wont cost as much. and the jl 1000/1 isn't 1ohm stable.

i went to 6th avenue electronics..and the one that i went to is extrememly known throughout the u.s. for unbelievable and crazy installs..on the pioneer website they did some of the cars for the sema show and others..the guys there i assume know there stuff...they said the alpine amp is better for daily use because the jl 1000/1 gets hot but the alpine PDX-1.1000 never gets hot and is better then the jl 1000/1 overall..this i what they said to me...what do you guys think??

lie^^^^^^^^^^^^

maybe they were refering to the jl being ran at 1ohm which i have seen done and it does it got and shuts off after awile. i would take the alpine over the jl in your case only because it is 1ohm stable.

true, didn't think of that, most have been another amp i was thinking of. still, for a very reputable shop to say a jl amp is inferior to an alpine amp is stupid and i'd think of going somewhere else after being told that. get the 2 10w6's, the jl 1000/1 amp and you'll be happy.

o.k. just reread your post, i must be tired or something. either amp would work for those 10w6's, so it comes down to what you can afford. the jl amp is by far a better amp than the alpine amp. not saying the alpine is bad but it's just not up to par with the jl.

that shop idiot is trying to get you for your money because that alpine amp yeilds a higher profit than that jl and i bet there not selling many b/c alot of people think alpine is only good for h/u

well tou should buy the jl amp at the shop for 899, my opinion the always are expensive at the shop in my opinion, when you can get the jl audio at http://sonicelectronix.com/item_1170.html for 699 + ship and the alpine at http://www.techronics.com/index.cfm?fuseaction=product.display&Product_ID=3941
for 533.25 with free shipping.
