Default M4a or 2 m3as?

Need help with amp choice. M4a wired at .75 or two m3as strapped at 1.2. Rise is 1.5ish in my truck on a single amp. Let's say voltage drops to 14v, input please

How low can you wire the subs down? If you can get it where after rise is just under 1 the M4a will do a shit ton of power

I have 12 d2 15s. Rise is up to 2.2 from .75 with m4a. This is a demo vehicle so it needs to be reliable
