    It'll be on 2 12" though so I figured a good 1000-1200 rms per woofer?

    I won't be using my amp to it's maximum potential. I like to give my amps some room for clean power.

    I would go with the 3500s, in a proper box.

    I found a deal on the 2500 pair ; I'm debating if I should get it.

    You can always turn the gain down a bit more, and keep an eye on them. Otherwise, wait for another good deal that better suits the power you have on tap.

    So you don't think it can handle around 2500? I just want to use the woofers to its potential without any clipping.

    I think 2500 would be pushing them pretty hard in just about any daily application.

    I will say that my old dd2510 took everybit that my aq2200@2ohm could muster. I did end up ripping the spiders but that was my fault for dropping way below tuning. So can the 2500's take power why yes they can but at those lvls you better be sure you know what your doing..

    i wouldn't do it. I've cut down some dd 2512s and the stock coil wouldn't be able to take that much heat. the 5 flimsy spiders would have some trouble
