    why not 2 DD3515's with like 3 1200.1's. each sub is like 250ish so that's 500, and then hell you have another grand to spend on amps. you could prolly find 2 bd1500.1's out there for 1000bucks and it will bump harder than those subs would in my opinion.

    yeah i misread it at first, i thought he said 4 15"s. **** man for 15"s you better have at least 20cuft. of airspace to build a box for. i mean i'm building 13 cuft. for my 2 15"s i can't imagine 8 15"s.

    .

    i aint really a fan of ma audio - id look elsewhere - blueprints if you're on a budget or RE SE or dd300 series - all very capable drivers - oh & a word of advice - forget ma audio amps too.

    I would advise you not to buy the clarion as they are pretty overrated only 150x2 not 250x2.

    go to jl audio to find out how to wire them if you put 4 on one jbl 1200.1 you can acheive 2 ohms with three woofers on a jbl 1200.1 you can achieve 2.66 ohms.

    I'm curious as to how you're gonna wire 16 coils on 3 amps...

    if you are seriously looking to be loud, 8 15's is not the way to go...

    2-4 15's in 14-20 cuft, with 250-400 inches of port would perform much better...

    for power.. the clarion amps aren't the best route either.. since they won't do the 1000 watts claimed...
