Default 4 10s, or 2 12s

I'm running dc 3.5k, was gonna build 2 12s out if 2 hdc312 motors, but now I'm leaning towards 4 sa or dc 10s. Any suggestions, or other options? Looking to stay under $700 or close to that. I have about 6-7 cubes

You gotta troll him don't you

The 10s have 310 sq cm area, the 12s have 480. The tens are comfortable in 10.35L each, the 12s like 20.3.

So with four SA-10s you will have 1240 sq cm in 41.4L, and with two 12s you will have 960 sq cm in 40.6L.

More area, and more power handling, for the same size box. Go with the 10s

I'd do the 4 10's. With enough port area, good box design and good power they can get loud.
