    My friend Andrew runs a single SAZ 3K to each one daily and they have no problems...plays it loud for quite a while and the subs barely get warm...amps stay ice cold.

    If you want SQL, the Alpha...if you want a little more SPL, LvL 5..

    All are correct DC lvl 5 would be compared to a RD HW

    If you want to be loud, and musical...just do the Alpha's...they are still going to get loud, but sound a little better doing it, even though the DC's still sound pretty **** good on music...not going to be much difference to the ear...only the TL will know..

    FS on the Alpha is a 22 making it more directed towards a SQ Application, I honestly dont think it will get as loud as you want it to but then again I have been known to be wrong....

    To the ear though...your not gonna know much difference...but the Alpha is more suited toawrds SQ..

    I'd just do the LvL 5's personally....won't hear difference to the ear, and will get loud as junk when asked too..

    If you care about putting up #s at all then go for the lvl 5.

    i have had the alpha and the lv4. the alpha is a good sub a little stronger on the bottom end but the dc will outperform in all the other aspects.
