    low end beast

    alright ive got 3 diamond d6 10s and i love them. ive been running them off a planet audio bb1400.1 at 2.7 ohms so around 900 watts for all 3.. they are each underrated at 500 watts rms so i just purchased a bigger amp (brutus 2100.1). i also just got an offer to trade my 3 10's for a skar zvx 12. im just slightly skeptical because i have never given the diamonds room to shine but the skar is beastly looking. I was just wondering as a guy who loves the lowest of the lows what i would be better off running. loudness isnt much of an object because i know both are gonna get loud.

    way more cone area with the 3 10's... not really sure of the throw on either sub, but i doubt the zvx has enough to make up the difference.

    No way I would run a single 12" skar over those Diamonds. If you want to get the lowest of the lows, throw them in the largest recommended sealed enclosure along with the appropriate power. It will be louder than you think but if it's not loud enough, next loudest would be a TL. After that, would be a large low-tuned enclosure.

No. In the end, the answer is, always has been, and can only be... heat kills speakers. BUT, clipping increases heat generation, sometimes by a drastic amount. So to start a thread simply to state that clipping does not hurt speakers is, again, a half-truth at best.
