Great Quality amp at a great price, the best of two worlds; Quality & Price
10 March 2014
Summary: Surprisingly crisp clear sound and very powerful for its small size. This little monster will please any one from a basshead to an audiophile, I initially bought this amp to power a oldschool eclipse subwoofer and definitely surprise me how much power this little amp put out and how clean it was that I went and bought another one to used on my other vehicle.
Summary: I bought this amplifier to originally power 1 DVC Memphis PR Series 12 in subwoofer and loved it, I had it wired on the sub for 2 ohms and it did wonderful. I now have 2 of them powering a Pioneer TS-W3002D2 and they do very well considering how much power it takes to drive that woofer.
Great amp, Great value, Easy to install and set up!

Summary: Typical Alpine amp! Has all the advertised power and then some. i use it to power 2 10" subs at 2 ohms 500 rms and it easily handles them.It is a breeze to install and is very easy to tune. i would highly recommend this amp to any one!
Summary: I bought this Amp to power 2 Mephis 10" Sub's. It preforms flawlessly! Way better than the factory installed Amp who's brand name I won't say. This Amp provides crisp sounds and straight up power! I can't even turn it up comepletely. I've been thumping it at about 3/4 volume, (my ears can only handle that much!) and there is not blowouts and it has yet to overheat. I would recommend this amp to anyone!
Big things come in small packages! Best Mono Block for the price! Nuff Said

Summary: So far so good! Just finshed installing my system last night and it sound's excellent! My other vehicle has a similar setup with a Mono Block Fosgate amp, and ive had it for years! Ive heard nothing but great things about this amp, from multiple sources, so I decided to go with alpine for my second build. Ran it to a dual voice coil 10" audiobahn sub in parallel @ 2ohm and have all the settings on natural. Low pass filter @75hz. Excellent blend of all audio frequencies.
Summary: I've had the mrp 500 for 3 years, bought a buddy of mine one on ebay for $95 shipped and he even loves it. This pushes more like 550 rms, sounds clean and will not break from pushing it too hard and you can get away with 1.75 ohms. This amp will not kill your battery and this is the best 500 watt amp out especially for pricing. Buy this used, cant really go wrong since these practically don't break; that's what i did twice.
