3 10'*. I've decided to go with this because this is basically the same price as getting one 12 in a box. So hey, more subs, less money. I'm gonna spend 650 on subs alone. Or should I go up to the 6000'*? I think the 4000'* are fine. Thanks.

Just get one Adire Brahma of the size you want. I would have done the same, but the Brahma'* weren't out when I got my Shivas. I still can't complain two shiva'*
and 900w rms is good for giving people problems lighting a lighter. You'd save at least $200 and be much happeir. Not to mention the impedance problems you would have trying to wire three subs to one amp.

it just depends dude, many will tell you that even a single 10" sub can sound and hit way harder than TWO 12'* if the box,amp and wiring is all to specs for the 10"er.
and remember, not always does more equal better. just get out and talk to some of the car stereo guys, or go to your local shop and speak at em. theyll hook you up with anything you need.

Just get the tri box MTX 6000'*, All I had was the MTX Blue Thunder amp 150x2 and they would definently hit hard and tight.

One 12/10 vs 2 or 3 10/12'* is all personal prefrence and comes down to quailty of equipment. Yes one GOOD 10/12 can sound way better than 3 cheapier 12'*.

My experience, I started out with 2 JL 10w3'* and that sounded pretty good, amped off JL 500.1 at time. had this for two years or so, than traded in the 2 10'* for ONE 12w6v2 and was amazed at the difference. The one 12w6v2 was FAR superior in sound qualilty and tone reproduction, =music sounded way more accurate, only trade off was not quite as loud because of less cone area. Both setups were off the same 500 watt JL amp.

Than I traded in that car and turned in my equipment to get my 01 ssei, I started over and evaluted what I wanted and I when for even a higher line of subs 10w7s and have never looked back. Personal I like the tightness of 10s over 12'* and am a sealed box guy. I want accurate sound not low end slop. To each his own.

Just evalute what kind of bass are you looking for, tight and clean or low and loud.
