For reference, the introductions forum is really for saying "Hi" and giving background and questions are better answered in the specific forum - subwoofers in this case, but I'll help you out - it just might not get the audience it should.
nantoman:I am a little confused as to which type I am supposed to get 4ohm or 2ohm, single or dual voice coil.
You want 2-ohms final at the amp, so either DVC-2-ohm or SVC-4-ohm would be fine (for two subs). Alpine Type R's are DVC-only. P3's probably are also, but I'm not sure on that.
If the MRP 1000 is 1000x1 at 2ohms, then if it's powering 2 subs would the wattage be 500x2 at 2ohms?
I don't like wording it that way, but you can think of it like that. The amp is 1000Wx1@2-ohms and the 1000W splits evenly between the two subs (in this case wired at 4-ohms each), giving each sub 500W.
Also would there be a problem with the 1.5 ft of the enclosure because I see that both those subs recommended space is less than that for a sealed box.
It might be - is it this box? I think if the box is too big the subs will sound a bit too "boomy" and also will not be able to handle as much power. However:
2002 Ford Focus JVC KD-A815 Sony CDX-GT410u Sony XT-100HD HD Tuner Stock speakers, no amp, no subs
Yes that is the box that I have. Altough It doesn't look all that big to me, I actually thought that it would be kind of small for two 12's. Thanks for the info TigerHeli.
Because my name is on the business, I work hard to make sure you get the best possible shopping experience. I look forward to hearing your comments .
