4-12's is 48'' 2-15's = only 30'' so you'll move much more air with the 12's thats alot of boom

Of course it also depends on the Xmax of the drivers in question.

4 x 12" will move more air (if the other specs are equal) but remember that drivers are usually circular so you cannot just add the diameter together for an accurate result:

Surface area:

2 x 15" = 353"

4 x 12" = 452"

Hello.

Hmm I dont think you know how hard Digital Designs will go.. They will take whatever you give them with EASE.

IF you are tight for space I would suggest JUST getting two 15" woofers in the RIGHT boxes instead of four 12" woofers in allright boxes.

This is something that will be crazy loud in the right boxes and properly powered.

Goodluck.

Stefan

GOODLUCK
