No offense buddy, but you probably shoudl have asked us before buying it, not after, haha.

But I'll try to help you out. I've always heard that its a lot better to overpower than to underpower your subs. Underpowering them will lead to distortion at high volumes, which will cause damage to your sub, and possibly your amp. As I mentioned in the previous thread regarding your sound system, I ran a 900W amp for my Alpine R12. I personally don't think its enough power. You always want an amp that'* as least as powerful as your sub'* RMS rating.

becaouse the 12 just doesnt cut it i dont have enough money for a bigger amp i only payed 30 bucks for the mtx and the ten was free plus the ten has better response so when the 12 is figuring out what note to hit the 10 is already on it it sounds descent im trying to trade my ten and mtx amp for another type r 12 then buy a bigger 1 ohm stable amp but untill then this is all i have

If you don't have money for a better amp, then use only the 10 with the Infinity amp until you can afford a better amp. At this point all you're doing is running the risk of damaging a sub.

Like I said before, you do not have the power to run both amps, and you will risk damaging one of your subs if you underpower it.
