3x10" CDT HD10SQ vs 2x12" SI Mag (all sealed)

Hey guys! Please contribute your thoughts. I have around 1000 wrms to work with for either set up. Mainly looking for output differences. I have never ran three subs before, I did run two, and I am not sure if having a third sub contributes much to output given the same power from a single amp. Initially, I wanted one 12" Mag sealed, but now I am worried, I may not have enough output. I had older version Mag ported before, and output was enough, however, I do not want any less now. Also wondering if upcoming version of 12" Mag sealed will be able to match my old 12" Mag ported. I am predicting - no.

Here are the links for the CDT's and current version Mag. CDT's are 20 lbs each, and the Mag will probably be around 25 lbs. Space will not be a problem, as both subs are designed for small enclosures, however weight may be an issue. So, if anyone ran 3 10s before, let us know, if it's worth it output and weight wise(nobody likes a saggy-bum car). I dont think SQ will be an issue with either sub. Thanks in advance. de=HD-10SQ

the new mag sealed will not come close to the old mag ported in terms of output.I would run the two sealed Mags over the three 10 cdt's. Sq will be very close but i think the 12's will be louder. Since the new Mag is not out yet this is just a guess from what i've read.Hard to compare subs that are out with subs still in production
