Default AP 1800D vs Sundown SAE1200

I'm stuck between which i should go for. It will be powering a 3515 D2, so I am leaning towards the AP to get a bit more power out of it, but I have heard so many better things about Sundown. Not that AP is a bad company. I know people that swear by them.

HELP ME DECIDE! Will I really see that much more with the AP? I think they are rated at a bit higher voltages, but I can't seem to find any research done on them.

I would get the audiopipe, but that's me. As a matter of fact I just bought a 1500d lnib for $115.

running it at 1 ohm. It would be kind of pointless to run both at 1/2 ohm. I would still only be getting like 1800 watts max at .5 ohm nominal.

with my electrical, it drops to 13.5 lowest. rests at 14.4-14.6

1200 clean will own 1800 dirty. Anyone who says otherwise can meet me in the lanes with their AP.
