4 12's , vs 6 10's

cant decide between the two options, not worried bout price, either going to be 6 diamond d310's (4 dual 4 2 dual 2) to get down to 1 ohm or 4 d312's all dual 2's again to get to one ohm, running a d61200.1 of course at 1 ohm just looking for thoughts about which setup would be better, probly going to port the box not entirely sure yet just throwing ideas out there i know the 12's will hit lower, going with diamond is because its what we carry and well i get a killer deal on it all

Do the 4 12s - you shouldn't mix subs of different impedences like you plan to do with the 6 10s... in that case the dual 2s will get more power than the 4s.

As an aside, the 12s will not "hit lower" just because they have a bigger sd, it depends on the tuning of your box.

You don't need 8 subs for a nice loud system. Just one or two subs, sufficient power, and a well-designed box.

Looks good though, I take it they're sealed?

Id love to have 4 12's but my 2.2 cuft box & 1 12 are already over 100lbs, it's a good anti-theft though. Less woofer, MO POOWWWAAA!! Having a good box, electrical, and deadening will also yeild dbs. Also I wouldn't run four d4 and two d2.
