Alpine - reasonably priced, 2 Ohm stable, reliable, and underrated. I have been running an Alpine MRP 450 that I bought on eBay for over a year with no problems.

I did the opposite on my 97 Saab. The stock tire size is 205/50/16. I changed to a 205/55/16 with no problem. I have noticed my speedo to be off by a mph or two at roughly 70 mph.
