Couple ?'s

Got a hold of a Alpine MRD-M500 amp & 3 12'' Kicker impulse i12 subs in a custom bandpass box. I've heard of Kicker Impulse, never heard of the subs though. Anyone know if they sound good. Now about the amp. Did some reading on the amp, sounds like it's a pretty good amp. Some forums I looked at talked about making sure that the amp's settings were set right to get the best sound. Subs are 8 ohm, wired in parrallel(sp) to get my 2 ohm load for amp. I haven't messed with it yet, just wondering anybody have any advice or should I just change it till I like it. My HD unit is a pioneer p7200 if anybody is wondering.

Sorry for long post.

your math is flawed, 3 8ohm subs doesn't equal 2ohms in any configuration.

3-12" in a bandpass? The box must be HUGE.
2.67 ohm.

My math is good, Just didn't put exact ohm's in post 8/3=2.66
Anyways, EW wherebouts are ya located. The box is pretty big, but problem is that the plexiglass is broke and I need a new one. The only thing is that it has 2 curves in it, and I need a new one. I called Cartoys all they have is straight ones, and they don't won't mess with curving one. Are ya able to or know of anybody that can.
