    Three 12"s no doubt. More cone area plain a simple plus they will play lower as well

    I have to disagree.

    4 10s have more cone area, 126 in^2 Vs 3 12s with 113 in^2.

    The 12s may play lower...but this boils down to sub choice and box design. A few high-end 10's will blow away a few cheap-o 12s anyday.

    i agree with pro . i also think the 10s would hit harder and not miss beats . my friend has 2 mtx 6000 12s with a larger amp and mine wups his.

    hahaha

    I say go with 2 12" adire brahmas with a XI-Colossus amp or two. Saves space but thats about it. Plus, it will kick the s**t out 3 12" and 4 10" any day of the week.

    Apparently the laws of physics dont apply to adire subsI cant believe that 2 12s could keep up with 4 10s, given the same power to both groups. The 12s would have to be 6 db more efficient to even make this a close competition.

    I say go with three 10 inch Rockford dual voice coil high power subs, and a BD1000.1 . With four tens or three twelves in that small of allowable enclosure space it would be two muddy, and punchy sounding. especially for those really LOW notes..
