    MMATS 1400.1 or leave the 2 RF 500.1

    I began a small build in my expedition about a month and half ago and was orignally going to use 2 ascendent 10" and 1 rf 500.1, wanted to stay within a budget. Once i threw the budget away things grew to 4 10's and 2 500.1 but i also have a 1400.1 mmats (old school) right now my amps are running 4 ohm mono which means im seeing roughly 275 watts per sub. I could take the 1400.1 and run it at .5 ohms and get significantly more power to each sub. My question is two fold 1. will the subs performance with more than double the power be so noticeably better that the sq that i lose by dropping to .5 ohm will be worth it. (i know there is no right or wrong answer for this just looking for opinions 2. It is a DD so at .5 ohm will the mmats run reliably day in and day out.

    Will probably still be cleaner than most even @ 1/2 ohm
