Default 2 or 4 amps for 6 15s

so i decided to try out the hifonics brutus 15s. i know they arent the greatest subs but felt like i wanted to try them. so i got 6 of them now my issue is i have 4 powerbass 3k amps and i know that it is to much power for them but i could just keep the gains down. i am looking to put them in about 18 cubes maybe a little less but my question is would you use all 4 amps or just 2 of them

I would use 3 amps. two subs per amp.. at a 1ohm load each.

if it's too much power, turn down the gain.

Um why 2 or 4 if you have 6 subs? If anything I'd run 3 amps and set the gain where I needed it.

To be fair, he could use four amps, three coils to each amp.

But I don't suggest it.
