Default Fi BL or Psi Level-1 Sub?

Im trying to decide which one would be a better choice. Fi is a reputable company for sure. But, I really like the Psi Sound custom built subs. They are both within the power and price range I'm looking at. But, I just can't decide which one to use....

Going to be using 1 12" ported in roughly 3.5cu-ft tuned to 34-36Hz. I like sq/spl mix in my music (depends on what Im listening to).

Any opinions?

You'll be safe with either. Fi is the sh*t but david knows his sh*t with the best of em too. There's no wrong choice.

3.5ft^3 is pretty big for a single 12"

I'm biased but I'm sold on Dave's work. I prefer the idea of not having to compromise on getting something that's "close" to my ideal and rather get what I want right off the bat.

No, I don't have a level 1 but I have had two hybrids (and soon to have a third) with softparts built by him and they've always been what I asked for. If I was gonna buy a off the shelf sub it'd definitely be one of Dave's.

I'm using a sub with a FI motor and everything else is from Dave. I have to say, Dave's a great guy to work. Based on the product alone I'd say he's the man, but his customer service is absolutely elite.
