Default 2 12s 4th order or 15s ported?

Same as title.
Which one would be better for a daily loud ground pounder that moves a lot of air.
Also which will use a smaller box?

4th order will move more air in my opinion but dont get me wrong tunning a ported box low low can be achieved with great outcomes.

2 15's will be better

Proper box for each they should be close in size but the 2 15's have more cone area

Just because it's a 4th doesn't make it some magical 5db gain enclosure

OK 2 15s it is, what other subs are like DC level 3m2s that I should look at? Likes small box low playing and works great around 1k a piece.

But thanks for chiming in. Your opinion is duly noted.

I'm going with ported 15s.
Arnt the SAs 2.5 in coils? I'd prefer 3in. Also it looks like the SAs would be happier with 4cubes per 15 oppose to DC wanting 3cubes.
Plus I heard the SAs are geared more towards SPLish oppose to liking lows. . . .
