Is this quality? Alpine V12 MRV-T500 and MRV-F250

I have had these sitting in my garage for about 2 years now. I did some work on my buddies '65 Stang and he gave me these as a thank you.

I am running a Sony HU to the F/R speakers (6.5 Infinity 2-ways) and using a Sony 500w RMS to run my Kicker C10 infinite baffle set-up.

Contemplating swapping out the Sony amp and using the T500 for the sub and the F250 for the door speakers.

MRV-T500 (RMS)
Bridged 1 Channel into 4ohms ....200W x 1

MRV-F250 (RMS)
Per Channel into 4ohms ............25W x 4

I was use to the quality I got from the Alpine 3522, 3522s and 3546 amps I use to own way back in the day. I was thoroughly impressed by them, but have never used the V12 series.

Finally installed both V12 amps. Couldn't be much happier.

I've mounted the MRV-F250 on the driver side behind the rear wheel well. This "was" where I had the Sony amp mounted for the sub.

I then mounted the MRV-T500 on the back of the driver side rear seat.

I also mounted an old-skool Alpine fader in the center console (where stock heated seat switchs usually are, but I do not have them) so I am able to fade front to rear. The stock HU has 2 sets of RCA, the front goes to fader and the back goes to sub w/sub volume control. Gives me full control of all 5 speakers this way.

Sound quality has improved drastically over the internal HU amp for f/r speakers and Sony amp for the sub.

With the amp locations and the infinite baffle sub set-up, I still have my full trunk and a great sounding system.

Right now the F250 has a cardboard template painted with flat black covering it until I have time to trace it on a board, cut it out and carpet it. I still need to make a template for the T500, but all in all very pleased.

Once I get the covers finished, pics will be posted.
