Don't get the sd 16k if you want low impedance. The b2 m1s will work good on the batteries and alt you mentioned.
Pros of strapping.. you don't have to gain match .and lowers your impedance.

Using d4s get the m1s it makes good power at one ohm and will go down to lower impedance when you get more subs Smile
Otherwise recone the subs to dual .5 and get another m3 and go one on one and be at. 25 each
A easy and problem free way is recone to d2 and strap a pair of m3s and be at. 25 each
a cheaper way would be get 2 more d4 subs and run one m3 on em and you will ne getting almost twice the power out of your amp and twice the cone area Smile

Damn Chris. I need to buy u a beer. Thanks bro. There so many ways of doing this. I think
I should just get a bigger amp. I would like to recone or wall.but it's my daily driver. So I need the
Rear view mirror. Where can I get a m1s at. I would like to be different. Chris.you think I can do a 4th order in a extended cab gmc but not go over the back window line with 2 15 or do I need to go smaller.

What type of vehicle are you doing this in and is it going to be a wall or no-wall?? Running amps seperate from one another properly gain matched is more effecient than running strapped..Most of the time you either build for Burps or you build for a Ground Pounder but hard to get both unless your running alot of cone area and a good amount of power..

Well. I wanna at least do 150DB and just be a ground pounder. Well what do you think
About a atomic 7000.1 or a M4a. I can get a atomic for a steal. Or just do another m3a?
I don't wanna do a wall. It's a daily driver and I have a gmc extended cab and took out the
Back seat. So I have all that room in the back so I need to redo a box and go wit 2 18in.

Having a smaller box like you want wont play the lows but will most likely be pretty good on the meter..Without the room its hard to tune low and still put up good #s..
