Well I am not completely clear on what all those numbers mean and everything,
but here is (are) my question(S)....
Looking at an Alpine S-series sub 12 inch... get 4 ohm or 2 ohm?
Lookin at Alpine amps...what would be the best to run that sub?
I am sure someone is gonna tell me this is already in someother thread but I would like some opinions on what to get.
I have an Alpine 9835 deck.

Agreed, Alpine doesn't have the greatest subs, but the SQ is among the best I've heard. I know there are better ones out there, but for the money i spent I think it sounds about as good as any other sub. Either way, ask on here before u buy a sub-i think somone on here has had every kind of sub and can answer questions for you. Good Luck

SQ? do you mean the S-series alpine sub?
Thing is, i kinda want to keep my system all Alpine... SO, if i got an alpine X or R series 12 inch sub, what V12 amp should i use?

It would but the S-series is more efficient and would actually be louder. The X-series can handle (and requires) more power to play at the same level. The benefit of the X-series is that it can handle 500 watts RMS where the S-series doesnt. The amp I recommended is a 300 watt amp. This is a better matched setup.
Now if you want to go louder, you will have to have a larger amp and one the X woofers. The S woofer is a good start if youve never had a system before. Go to a local Alpine retailer and take a listen.

For the MRD-M301 and an S series, it is considerably less, at least half the price.
