both are good. crossfire's primary feild of expertise is amplifiers, as woofer and speaker is to adire.
personally i like the brahmas over the xfire.
and the brahmas will handle 3000rms watt burps each. or more depending on a few factors that include the frequency youd be playing among many others, but ya, they will do the job:-)
here is another brand to look into, look for the closest dealer and if its to far, let me know, i will give you a direct phone number, name and reference from me. these in my, and many spl champions opinion, are the best money can buy.

the brahma is a better sub that the xfire, but the DD9900's takes the cake. check them out
as far as power, it depends on what your tryin to do, i dont really know what kind of sound your loooking for, type of car, or ballpark db range?

The Brahmas are going to be louder than the Shivas. Take more power as well.

SPL z1x3000d does 2300rms at 1ohm,
can be bought for around 300 bucks.

Brahmas are dual two ohm subs, so you'll need a mono amp that develops the amount of power you want on a 2 ohm load, or two seperate amps that develop their power at either 1 or 4 ohm. It depends a lot on which enclosure you use, the Brahma owners manual gives a chart of power recommendations for the enclosure you plan to run, usually 800-900W RMS works well. It ain't gonna be cheap though, how much can you spend?

Honestly I haven't dealt with a lot of Crossfire's stuff, so I can't go into that. Personally I'd give the Brahma around 750-800W RMS, depending on enclosure, an MTX 1501D would be a great amp and not horribly costly.

You'd wire the subs coils in series, then both the subs parallel to the amp for a 2 ohm load.

BTW, around 750-800 works best with sealed enclosures. Adire's website gives you an idea of how much power is needed with certain enclosures.
