Greetings all! It's been a while since I've visited the forums but I find myself facing a small dilemma and I figured I'd gather some opinions from a trusted source. I've got a Rockford Fosgate P1000-1BD in my Focus that I am trying to pair a sub with. Last month I ordered an Alpine Type-R SWR-10D2, rated at 1,000w RMS and 3,000w peak which should have been a perfect match for my amp. But after break in, I set the gain with a DVOM and the sub quickly began to overheat and smell like an electrical fire. It's possible that I got a defective sub, but I really feel like the subs performance was underwhelming for 1,000w. I've heard systems with half that power rating that seemed to hit harder. So I'm open to suggestions for subwoofers. I am open to running 10's or 12's, but I need to be able to present a 1-ohm load to my amp. I'd like to stay under $200 for one sub, or $300 for 2. Should I try and stick with one powerful sub (limited options for ~1,000w RMS) or should I go with 2 less powerful drivers? Should I give the Type-R another chance and get 2 SWR-10D4?
