ive got 2 of those, in a ported box, and im selling my old amp cuz i dont like it... lol
ive had my eye on the MA-hk1998, 600x1 at 2 ohms, would that work for both or should i buy one amp for each sub?
otherwise any recommendations for an amp, under $250, to power my type-rs would be cool,otherwise its the hk1998 from ebay that ima get, and im thinking about getting 2
also this setups going in my new car, 97 vw golf, getting it for $1200 and its got 80,000 miles, buying it from a rich friend who doesnt want it anymore, only thing wrong is rear struts need to be replaced(good deal?)

the hk1998 does not match up well at all with a pair of 500w dvc 4's.

It would be helpful to know what amp you had, how it was wired - so we can get an idea of what about it might have given you worse performance than you'd like.

the enclosure can have a big impact as well.

im selling the amp with my car, it was a sony 1600 watt amp, i believe (http://www.epinions.com/pr-Sony_XM-DS1600P5_1000W_x_1_Car_Amp_Mono_Subwoofer_Amps_Car_Audio_Amplifier/skp_~1/search_string_~sony%2520xm-ds1600)
link to amp the sony xm-ds1600p5,
but otherwise what can someone recommend for me to power my 2 type-rs, id like to stay decently cheap, ive got money to spend but need to save
my old setup is gone cuz the kid wants part of it and im keeping the type-rs, i need a new amp and im trying to get ideas of what to find to power them, as long as they get the power they need im happy

what about the http://cgi./DB-DRIVE-1000-WATT-RMS-1-OHM-MONO-CAR-AMPLIFIER-AMP_W0QQitemZ280193032482QQihZ018QQcategoryZ64570QQssPageNameZWDVWQQrdZ1QQcmdZViewItem
db drive 1000x1 at-ohm, that would power both the type-rs at 1-ohm, but would the amp be stable at that one ohm or is the company just boasting?

that db's not half bad - so maybe it's only 800w or so.  The diff between 800 and 1000 is going to be insignificant at the most, and the price is right.

it's 1 ohm stable - it's not uncommon in a sub amp these days.

Other possibilities in the price range.

Lanzar Opti1400d

Hifonics bxi1206d

out of them all i like the hifonics the most, my buddy had a 1600 watt rms brutus powering a rockford fosgate t2 and yeah... it was loud, but he fried the amp when he crashed cuz it wasnt mounted,
any objections? otherwise the hifonics is about 180 on ebay including shipping... and im liking it lol
also i found a alpine CDA-9856 for $80 from a buddy, works and what not, has ipod cable to, ima get that and the amp and be set with my system... hopefully...

o wow... so the hifonics it is then for sure, and its cheaper... wire the type-rs to 1 ohm, and run the amp to them and itll power them pretty good for $180
