I always liked alpine type r subs for their sound and value, but i never had a really good amp pushing them, till now. I got the ssl evo5000 and is rocking this sub like i never heard b4, I’ve fallen in love with my alpine sub all over again and now im in love with this amp. $169 for this monster? I guarantee it will be ur best buy. Im hoping it will handle the load in hot weather months as amps tend to overheat and shut down. I highly recommend!!! Fast shipping too
