Opinions needed: I haven't decided on a Crux or a SLATE - What I do know is that I need a Q-Ring, 48-tooth, and I want the bike configured as a 1x. Which model Crux do you suggest I buy to build out this configuration?

I don't know the answer to your question - but not sure you are comparing apples to apples with those two bikes.
The Crux is a proper CX bike, where the Slate is more aimed at the new Adventure/ Gravel bike segment.
The SuperX and CAADX is Cannondale's CX range, the Diverge is Specialized's Adventure bike range.

Duly noted; the question was: Which model Crux ...yadda..yadda 1x config ..best bang for configuration. -I (want) Crux or a SLATE.

Right, so the Slate has absolutely nothing to do with the thread whatsoever, thanks for clarifying - hope someone can help you with an answer on the Crux.

I'd go expert x1, and swap the ring. BTW, you may want to check the fit of the 48t Q on a crux before you pull the trigger. A 50t Sram NW chainring mounted to a sworks crank w/ a quarq hits the CS on a '15.
