I've wondered if they were any good. I may keep an eye out for when they go off preorder.
I'd even go so far as to guess that a pair of Xfl-15 would CRUSH a single 18 on your power. A Tahoe? 48"w x 26+"d?... 19" T?... I think 2 lower powered 15's would be your best bet.
That ride is the meat and potatoes of Bassheads.
I've helped /w/ a few. even a pair ol' tired Sa15 will still impress. Maybe not the "best" or world beating results everyone is after but it WILL utilize your power rather well if done right.

Kinda hard to miss the target when you've got that much space available Imo.

What's your opinion on the Lowballer? I want something that i'm sure no one around me has even heard of. It's 900W RMS.

I like headroom with wattage. I've seen way more underpowered system blow up than overpowered ones.

3000 watt amp? I'd look at 2500-2800 watt subs total
1200 watt amp? I'd look at 1000w subs
10,000 watt amp? I'd look for 8000w subs total

My amps are way above the rms as my subs. I have a 12" Demon and a 12" SA12. Both amps do 1200w rms both are JBL. Box rise and all that.

I say 2 GCON 15s with D4 coils wired to 1 ohm on the Smart 3. I've heard plenty of people say the SSAs can handle above their RMS ratings, and with box rise they won't get the full 3k watts anyway.

I disagree with box rise and that whole concept of how that works. The resistance is fluid. You have no idea what your rise is playing music. The resistance is changing 100's of times per second, depending on the location of the coil relative to the flux field of the magnet. Switching between notes is going to rise differently than a tone. For daily, there is almost zero benefit to designing around rise.
