Will this amp work well with my system?

Ive got a Alpine 9833 deck and Infiniti speakers that push 150Watts RMS each

I want to get a 10" JLW3 V2 sub that is 300 watt RMS or the 12" Alpine 1242D that is 500 watt RMS and get the Alpine MRV-F450 to push the entire system

The amp is 50w x 4 for the speakers and 200w x 1 for the sub

Will this amp be powerful enough? or does anyone know of a better one

Because space in the Rangers are limited...im looking to get one amp to power everything although its ideal to get one to power sub and another to power speakers

well i have a similar setup under construction:

jl audio xr-components
jl 10w3v2 sub
alpine mrv-f450 amp

i have the front speakers bridged over 4 channels, so i push about 80-100 to them. (currently still alpine type-r components) and they sound awesome.
i'll should be putting the speakers/sub in on monday, or at the latest next weekend. i can let you know then.

if you don't have an aftermarket alternator, you are only giving the amp 12.7volts. on the alpine amp box it says that the 50x4 and 200x1 is on a 14.4v current. 12v is 35x4 and 150x1. so think about that.

honestly dude, since you have an extended cab, i would get one amp for the speakers (alpine f345 maybe) and one mono amp for the sub. i would get a jl audio 12w3v2. use the back wall for both amps, and build a box for the sub that can go under one of the jump seats.

the only reason i have the 10" amp and only 1 sub is because i have a regular cab...i still haven't figured out how i'm going to fit them all in together...

if you give it maybe a week i can answer your question for sure about if it is enough. but if you aren't putting the amp on the back wall, use spare space for a second amp.

you should really run a mono amp for the subs, and then a 4 channel for your speakers I'm assuming ur referring to the type s sub correct? you should really be pushing at least 300 to the sub for the best performance

The Alpine im looking at is a Type-R

James13f: Ill look forward in hearing about your progress. And as for the 2 amp thing...I guess its a possibility I just wanted to go as compact as possible to save room

ok, the type r will definitely need the power!! Audiobahn has a rackmount that is 5 channel, and i believe it is capable of 600 watts rms on the sub channel at 4 ohm. I will let you know for sure with model #, specs and avg. retail pricing, as soon as my bro gets home.
