you'd have more cone area with the two 12's..

The 2 12s would have an easier time taking the Power than a single 15 getting 700+rms more than its rating.

Like G-monk Said...wouldn You Feel Better Having 2 Subs Take 750rms Each Than 1 Sub Taking 1500rms?plus You Have Twice The Cone Area

Ill stick to rms ratings, thank you. If the sub could take 1,800rms all day, every day like you say it can, Im pretty sure they would rate it at that.

with the added options (p chamfer, cooling, flatwind coil) it can take 1800 watts easy, if u get it bone stock mabe just the p chamfer, then the rms rating is 1000-1300 watts rms...

a BTL can take up to 5000 watts for certain applications...... at its rated at 2000 rms......

by changing the options on the btl yes it has taken 5k daily. yes steve meade has his at about 5k daily

however when this situation arises, you have to be extremely careful about the power being applied as well as the enclosure generally tends to be smaller to help with the power handling.

Yeah exactally, Even though i love Fi subs, the CVXs are awesome subs also, but you cant argue the cone area. Even though you can probally get the Fi sub to be easily just as loud. Go with CVX's!!!

Yeah same here. What he has as his specs and he has available to him, The 2 CVX match up better.

I see absolutely no reason why that sub wouldn't take that much power all day everyday. I ran 3kw(clamped w/ -3db tone @ 2 ohms) to my q for 45 min to an hour and the cone was barely warm....i was TRYING to make it stink and i couldn't. But off my opti2000d @ .5 ohms it was getting stinky off about 1700 watts... Scott said the thermal ability of the bl was about par stock with the q, then with options it goes up quite a bit. I know thats a little bit of a bench racing thing but its just a setup for the next part.

after some simple ohms law application, say the bl could handle 1kw @ .5 ohms that would be the same quantity of current as 4kw @ 2 ohms...and we all know current is proportional to heat.
Now mechanically i would definitely doubt the bl's capabilities at 4kw....but i think doubting that it can thermally handle 1800 watts at 2 ohms is somewhat ridiculous.

Now...i'll tell you to get the cvx's. No replacement for displacement...and two motors, lol. I was just trying to make a point.

wrong, even with all the options and just under 1800wrms going to it, it'll reach it's limits.
