It's really hard to say how loud you will be. You going to be runnin amp at 1ohm or 2ohm? I don't think the lvl3 could handle that amp @1ohm daily. Lvl4 with lvl5 voicecoils could though. Amp is rated at "2,[email protected]" but really puts up more around 1,800rms.

Its dumb to upgrade a sub with lower motor force to handle more power in a daily application.
Just get the sub built to handle the power daily.

At that point, you may as well just buy an HDC. Itll have the power handling you want, with the stiff spiders and will throw up good numbers.

Edit - and 2k off a 15 in cabin should net you more than a 139.. You shouldnt have a problem with much more than that.

It's a 600rms sub. 1000rms is the max I'd run...that's just me. I'd seriously think about doing lvl4 with lvl5 coils. If you call and talk to rusty or rob then they will probably advise you the same.

That amp will be fine if you run 2 Level 3s but in no way can I recommend running over 1kw daily even with the upgraded suspension. If you are getting a true 1800w of clamped power out of your amp then I have to recommend an XL instead of the Level 4 w/5 coil. The Level 4 w/5 coil is good up to 1500w of CLEAN power.

x2, I had stock DC LVL 3 15s and I would not run more than 800ish to them daily. Great subs, and in the right hands im sure they could take 1k each, but if I was going that route, I would have just gotten a LVL 4.

If you only did 139 with your current setup, you have a huge efficiency lapse somewhere...solve that and it is your best bet to gain...I can do that number on my SA12 with 500rms
