Opinion on which subs to run

Recommended Posts

I'm working with a Tahoe, but want to keep my box on the smaller side to keep the vehicle very functional. My original thought was 4-8's sealed downfiring, but today I ran across a deal on a DD Audio m4a that I couldn't pass up, and now have substantially more power on tap.

Amp is rated at [email protected], [email protected] I'll probably operate it in the 12.5-13v range with my current electrical.

So now maybe 3 or 4-10's sealed is my new plan. I've ran the XL's back in 2010 and loved them, but trying to stick with small box, I was leaning towards level 3's or level 4's. Will either option hold up well with 1500watts ea going to them in a smallish box? Or am I better off with say 2 xl drivers instead ?

Clicky for build log....
