hmmm i'd stick with the cresendo 3k's/ cleaner sound for sure if the budget isn't the issue.

and the airspace for those dimensions before any port, sub or bracing is 11.77 cubes so, maybe like 2 cubes of bracing with the sub, and maybe 1-2 cubes with port, so looking at like 8 cubes or so not 2 bad for 3-4k rms per coil... do 6-8 k rms...

2 cubes of bracing?
I think those are his max dimensions, not what hes using.

Well $$ its not really an issue, it just that i see that the Audiopipe 1500.1 are rated 1500rms @ 1ohm, so having a quad coil sub i thought about putting 4 of those, plus the looks on the set up will be nice also(planing to do some fiber). The crescendo amps they look good too but no really feeling the gold color, not just for the color. Thats why i need opinions from you guys that knows you s*it

i think cresendos, i havent heard any bad reviews and there warrenty is real nice. i have heard sketchy things with audiopipe as well and you cant run them down to low ohms
