if your going to buy another amp buy a real amp! why spend money to get a claimed extra 100w? sell your amp then use the money from it and the money from not buying the kenwood and get something around 700-1000RMS

Yep I ran 2 Amps, at First I ran Both Subs Off One, but it wasn't loud enough so I bought another.

But yeah Like Jo-Psyko Said An Extra 100watts Isnt Much. for a Couple hundred Dollars you Could Find a 1000watt Rms Hifonics Amp On Ebay.

i use to have one of those amps but i must say it was a great amp for what it was i ran 6 tens off it and it never shut down or got hot. yes i know that i was bearly touching the 6 tens but for a few weeks in my daily it did great for what it was but like the others said just for a 100watt difference i would not say that it is worth it unless the alpine is not a class D amp the kenwood is a class D which means that it is more effeicent
