edit: Just saw the power output on those amps. lol 1500-2000+

that sounds fine to me, but you're definitely underpowering the nightshade.

If you are choose an AB amp I would recommend a VFL 120.1 or bigger. I just bought a VFL 175.1 for $450 shipped on here to run my DD 9515. The VFL's will run at .5 ohms all day if you have the electrical to support it.

I sell both us amps and AB at my shop, i would say throw a AB 150.1 on it or a md3d if you can find one. That 3" 8layer flatwound coil in the dc level 5 recone will love every watt you can throw at it!

I would stretch my pocket a little and at least try a VFL 120.1 because they are battle proven and strong as [email protected] Now if you are only willing to look at those amps you have listed I would do the Merlin between those amps

With 1500rms from the nightshade the Phantom 4000/2000rms would be fine if you dont want to blow your trunk apart as a daily driver.Besides its all in the enclouser.
