    Got a few questions. Help please!

    I'm gonna make my first sundown audio purchase around Xmas time. Couple questions here...
    3 SA 15's or 4 SA 12's?
    If I run 3 15's, will they handle my 4k amp, with conservative gains and a clean signal?
    And my last question is... My amp does 4kw at 1 ohm. What's a "ballpark" estimate of what it'll put out at 1.34 ohm?
    The vehicle is in my sig, 97 jimmy. Box will be ported, obviously, not sure of tuning yet but it will most likely be low 30's. my goal is OUTPUT!
    Thanks in advance!

    3 15's is a little more cone area but more of a pain. 4 12's you'd be able to run easy at 1ohm and have 1k per. I'm not sure what your amp would do at 1.3 w/ rise and all but, personally I would shy away from the awkward 3 setup for my taste.
