    3 or 4 10's

    Okay peeps...

    I am working on a budget build. Working with the e-bay mystery VVME RD10's. Now they only come in dual 4ohm. I am running a Soundstream Rubicon 2500.1d rated at:
    2500 watts @1ohm
    1700 watts at 2ohm

    Now I am contemplating if its worth it to run 4 of the tens as I would see 2ohm. So just for numbers sake, lets say the 4-10's see 400 watts a piece. Now, if I run three my amp will see 2.33ohm. Again, lets say for numbers sake each of the three subs see 500 watts.

    Which would you run? (Please, no comments saying neither cause the subs are junk) Its a damned budget build.

    4-10's at 400 watts each
    or
    3-10's at 500 watts each
    and why????????

    Re: 3 or 4 10's

    If I get rid of my false floor and use the entire hatch I have about 6cu.ft^3 to play with.

    I am thinking 4-10's in 4cu.ft^3 net should be sufficient

    3 and run it at .67


    In all seriousness go with 4 ran @ 2ohm. Rise won't be your friend though.

    If I had the electrical needed, I would run 4 at .5 but this Rubicon is gonna be a current hog at .5
