    Smile Sub Amp Combo Underpowered?

    I currently have a

    Alpine SWR-1222D (duel 2 ohm 500 watt rms max)

    coupled to a Alpine MRP-M500

    had them for a while bought them together, but the more i look at it the more i think that amp is under powered for that sub and i should upgrade to the Alpine MRP-M650 or Alpine MRP-M850 (or other recommended, hint hint) to get the most out of my sub

    its also stuck in a 1 cuft sealed enclosure and i think its gonna be better in a 1.7 ported

    its not that i wanna sound loud and proud but why not make the most of what you have right

    any advise welcome guys (and gals)

    You're right, you should if possible use a more powerful amp than you have a sub, you can always turn the amp down.

    As for the enclosure I'm not 100% on sizes etc

    Vehicle : Signum

    Trim : Elite

    Engine : 1.9 cdti

    Year : 2006

    Mileage : 145k

    Default

    Alpine website will have all the measurements for the box ported or sealed for every sub they sell, as for ported vs sealed it depends what you want from the sub.

    Ported will be louder but tuning is very important and tricky to build

    sealed obviously wont give the same output on the same power but gives a good all round sound
