    Running different size subs can cause cancelation at certain freqencies and actually cause the bass to sound quieter. This does not happen every time but it can happen.

    Nope, there's nothing wrong with that. Just make sure the EQ's on both amps are matched up fairly well or else you'll have slight phase/cancellation issues in the frequency waves. It would be better if the amps were from the same company with the same type of internal crossover.

    I've heard a system with 2 18's and 2 15's. The 18's were on 1 4300 watt amp and the 15's were on 2 2200 watt amps, all amps were from the same company. The 18's were in a seperate enclosure from the 15's of course. The setup sounded amazing. BTW, it was all AudioQue equipment in EXO's Expedition at Spring Break Nationals.
