what do you mean more control of the drivers at lower volumes? And why can't I achieve this with the one amp?
Is the sound quality going to improve much more?
Sorry about all the questions I just quite interested in this

by the way, the subs are 4 ohm dual voice coil, so my wiring options are 4 ohms or 1 ohm (preferably 4)

if the amp has heaps more power than the sub needs, then it can cruise along with some to spare for the loud tricky bits. if your amp is already working at its maximum, then if a piece of music comes along that demands more, the amp will let you down with inferior sound quality.

for example a rapid series of drum kicks in the music could blend together if the amp is pushing its limits, but would sound clear and distinct if the amp has some power spare.
