Default 3-15s or 2-18s in Tahoe

I have an 03 Tahoe and I plan on running the cresendo 1000c4 for my mids n highs and the 3kwp for my subs now with that being said Im trying to decide on either 3-15s or 2-18s. I plan on running this in a daily driver and I will not be cranking it up very often but when I do I want it get loud and sound good at it. My previous setup was 4 kicker cvx 12s off of 2 hifonics bxi 2006d amps in a ported box tuned to 33Hz. Iver never heard or owned 18s so what are the pros n cons versus 15s.

Id reccomend the 2 18s if you aim for higher end subs. I love the sound of 2 18s for some reason, though youll have increased cone area with the 15s, I just like the thought of 2 18s better

The 18s will have 509 sq in. of cone area
The 15s will have 530 sq in. of cone area
That's a pretty similar number right there^^... 3 15s vs 2 18s of the same sub, the 15s will obviously have more motor force, but you have to consider you'd be running those 3 at lower power with your amp. I'd get 2 18s... A lot of nice subs can handle 2kw rms perfectly.

it really doesnt matter to me if i run it at 1 ohm or 0.5 ohm, will either cause the amp to fail prematurely or something, im not sure on my price range but i figured i would just wait til i ran across a good deal on some

3 15's!!! No good reason particularly. Either way I'm interested in either set up you go with. As I drive a tahoe also. What's your electrical like? I'm going with 2 sa-15 for my next set up personally.

Crescendo amps are warrantied at .5 ohms, so you don't have to worry about the amp failing. Running at .5 does put more strain on your electrical than 1 ohm. I'd run at .5 if I had one of those amps though.
