Just to understand correctly, you want to add a 3rd sub woofer with a different amplifier to the existing install?
If so, bad idea.
Depending on the coil configuration on the drivers, you would be better off wiring all three together on the existing amplifier.
Before purchasing another driver, how do you feel about your current enclosure? Did you build it, or a shop? Do you know the specs as far as volume and tuning? Reason I ask is the enclosure plays a HUGE part in the end result.

If you want more output I would get a little better amplifier and work on the enclosure to ensure you have what is working best for your application.

3 is not a good number
Pioneer deh9300 sd / 1 set of Focal 165KP / 12" Fi BTL N2 in a 2.5 ft3 box @ 34Hz / Sundown sax 50.4 & saz 1500 D
Secondskin Damplifier & pro / Stinger wiring and accessories / 1 Kinetic HC 1200 (2nd battery) / 0 ga grounds & power !
As Hoffman's iron law goes, Efficient enclosure, low frequency extension, or small space, pick two.

As for your idea, it will not operate correctly at all. You should do some reading on what are some better options then what you are attempting. Personally I would get another D4 15 and run all three subs to a 2.66 load and snag a second amp and master/slave them. That would net a better overall result over what you are trying now.
While our insight is not being used here(you are doing to do it anyway), please tell me that the 3rd 15 is in its own enclosure in no way sharing space/port area with the other subs? If it is, you will find yourself with worse results then doing it the "correct" way if there is such a way as correct for this situation.

So two of the 15's will see ~750wrms and the other will see ~1000?
The box is 10.5 cubes there for the right size and I talked to sundown and they said go for it
The one with more power will move more and cause funny shit to happen.
unfortuneately eD made the bus, so it sounded horrible, made no power and the "protect engine" light came on before it left the parking lot and wouldn't go away, and the eD tires wouldn't stick to the road for nothin'
Come on now - this isn't the time to be critical. This weekend was their annual meet in Iowa. Instead of the usual heavy drinking and good times, ED supplied a bus and hauled everybody over to Cedar Rapids to help with flood relief. That's not the kind of thing you see every day and it speaks very well for ED and the car audio community as a whole - except that I made it up.
