I would do the 10's but that will really limit any power upgrades for the future

i have a audiopipe apk 4500 on tap and the 10's can be built for 1500rms each...so i can allways upgrade power....but the 10's will see a final load of .44 and the 12's will see a fina load of .66....so the 10's have more potential to get loud...or do they? i have no idea on 4th orders

I'd do 2 better 12s. Wire them to .5 or .66

Can't speak for a 4th order, but I overpowered the fawk out of 3 Diamond Audio d3 10's on a [email protected] ohm after rise. Rated at 400w each, they were getting 730ish a piece and didn't skip a beat.

I say go with 3 10's. You have more wiring options, and a smaller box. Most 10's need 1-1.25cuft each so you're around 3.75-4cuft, which saves some space over 2 12's. Besides everybody likes a 3some, they're just so much fun.

The D3's are more Sq oriented, but they got loud and sounded awesome. That's one setup I wish I still had. I couldn't imagine how nice 3 dc level 3 10's would be.

I love 3 10's setups but this won't be with dc lvl 3 10's...it will be with 3 custom 10's prolly 30+lbs each and will be in a 3:1 ratio 4th order iv ran nothing but sealed and ported boxes so it's time to do a 4th order

If the 12's have higher excursion then you'll have more displacement with the 2 12's than the 3 10s once you change from looking at it in 2 dimensions to 3 dimensions... also, cone depth would come into play if you were banking on a vs cone area debate. Personalmy I'd take the tsps of both and decide based on those what would be better suited in a 4th

the 10's would be better suited in every way then...and ratio wouldnt be a problem in either setup...but the 10's would have a 3.3:1 ratio and the 12's would be 3.1:1

i would to the 2 12's. you can always add more power later. if your looking at cone area your only talking about 9 more square inches not really a difference, now motor force wise you might have more.

anyway kind of subs are talking about? looks like the 12's are a little more higher end than the 10's
