    But on subs in most cases(quality built subs) that rating is there only to protect the sub. Not really saying thats all they will take. Even if a sub says 2000watts max doesnt mean much. A sub can "say" 2000watts and only have a 1.5inch voice coil, a sub with that coil wont get close to taking 2000 watts, you would be lucky to get 600 through it with out blowing.

    So theres alot of factors that i my self dont really understand that dictates power handling other then what the sub is actually rated. Most of the time you can tell what the subs all about just from the Voice coil size. A 2.5inch coil i wouldnt go over 2k watts on maybe not even 1500watts honestly but people do it anyway.

    The 1 thing about the HDC3 sub is that the motor is a REALLY strong motor but they lack on the soft parts. Its only rated at 1k due to those parts. But if reconed with better parts they will be rated at probly 3k. ive talked to guys that gained 1.5-2db just from reconing to better soft parts in the HDC3's and without changing anything else.
    yeah exchanging the softparts to match the power and get louder sound a lot more plausible then just throwing chunks of power with diminishing returns. 1-2 db difference is a lot when competing.
