Are they the new 12" 05 model type-R (500rms/1500peak).
http://www.onlinecarstereo.com/CarAu...roductID=14953

Or the 04 model (300rms/1000peak).
http://www.onlinecarstereo.com/CarAu...roductID=11612

They didnt make a 450rms 12" Type-R.

Also, did you get the Dual 4ohm or Dual 2ohm model...

dont go cheap when buying car audio...most of the time you get what u pay for, also when u do get an amp bridge it and wire yer speakers down to 2ohms(2ohms each). that way yer amp will have no prob pushin them

Okay, now I can recommend some amps. If your electrical system can take it I HIGHLY recommend you do not pass up this deal...

http://www.ikesound.com/product-product_id/2163

This thing retails NEW for over $500. One of the most trusted/best amp makers on the market.

Since it's class AB it might have a pretty big draw on your electrical system running bridged at 600rms 4ohm mono. To keep the price in check you really wont be able to go to a D-Class monoblock and run it at 4ohm for around 600rms. You could wire the subs down to a 1ohm load and run of these

http://www.ikesound.com/product-product_id/2426
or
http://www.ikesound.com/product-product_id/2119

Same amp.

I still suggest going with the Orion, bridging it and running everything at 4ohm. It'll sound great and be very reliable. Lets hope your electrical system is still happy though.

With two dual 4ohm subs he can only wire them to 4ohms or 1ohm.

And bridging 90% of Class AB amps and running them to a 2ohm load means you'll be frying quite a few amps. Most 2 channel Class AB amps are NOT 2ohm MONO stable (but are almost always 2ohm STEREO stable). Only usually some very expensive ones are (such as made by Zapco).

Hey this has nothing to do with volfenhag but I thought I would post my audio question in here instead of making another thread. A while ago I decided on getting the DD3512ds, I was thinking about this amp http://www.onlinecarstereo.com/CarAu...roductID=14805
because the RMS for the DDs is 1,000 and they would each get exactly that with this amp, and its a super D class ( I'm not sure what the SUPER means but hopefully you can clarify that for me. Anyway do think that is a good amp and what sort of ohm load should I run them on.

Yes that's a great amp choice and would perfect for a set of 3512d's.
Remember to get the DVC 1ohm model so you can wire two of them down to a 1 ohm load.

http://www.ikesound.com/product-product_id/3444

I found the same amp at ikesound for a bit cheaper, check it out.

hey thunder while ur here, ive been searching for 2 more 12" subs, so i can have 3, i was just lookin at those 05' 4ohm type R's... are they really good?

that seems like a pretty good price if they are, also if u do recommend those subs what would be the best bang/buck amp to power them?

Hey thanks a lot man. Could I wire them down below 1 ohm, the DD website says they can take it, or is the problem that the amp can't take it? Thanks.

o yeah and how much again did you say DD would sell those subs for?

Edit-Nevermind it says 1 ohm my bad

Dont you already have a 12" Volf? Or are you willing to get rid of it for 3 Type-R's?

Okay, if you go with three '05 12" Type-R's get the Dual 2ohm model. This way you can wire it down to 1.34ohm (If you get the DVC 4ohm model you can wire it down to only 2.67ohm...which good luck finding an amp that can do 1500+rms within price reason).

ikesound doesnt have the DVC 2ohm model in yet with the 12" but they have the 10"

http://www.ikesound.com/product-product_id/3502

Are you sure you want to lose that much trunk space with 3 12s? 3 10s would sound pretty good and cost exactly $300 + ship.

As for an amp to push them...
http://www.ikesound.com/product-product_id/2941

Would push 1400rms. Giving each about 460-470rms.
