    Time to upgrade

    Getting bored with my setup. Time to upgrade.

    Thinking a single HDC4 15" but I see they only come in D1. So I was thinking a about the AP 3000 at 2 ohms. I was leaning towards the single 15 so I could run a smaller box. Current is 4 cubes after all displacements and I cant get my spare out of the trunk....

    Or maybe 2 HDC3 12s on an AQ3500.

    I ran 2 HDC3 10"s on an AQ 3500 in my truck and loved it.

    Pretty much looking to get louder then my current setup and if possible run a smaller box. Also not wanting to spend a chit load. lol

    Size size or smaller if possible but also want to get louder as well.

    Another option I was considering. I have 2 sa-8s in my truck and love them but I worry 4 sa-8s wont be loud enough.

    I'm assuming your current box is around 3.5-4 ft^3 with 2 obsidian 12s? You could fit 6 or 8 SA-8s in that much room lol... Would be pretty expensive though. You could also wait and see how the Sundown X series looks.

    Also a Fi SP4 15 could be an option for 1 sub SP415 - Fi Car Audio Store

    I was either doing 2 HDC3 12s in 4 cubes or 1 HDC4 15 in 3.5 cubes.

    Only reason I didnt want to run .5 is my electrical setup. So a 2200D at .5? I was planning on a 220 amp alt and 2 powerware 102ah batteries one day.

    Yes current box is 4 cubes after *** displacements. Yea I would love to run 6 sa-8s but like you said that gets expensive.

    I was thinking about the ZV4 15 as well. But I think the HDC4 can handle more power. Buying 2 12" of the Z or X would be too much money as well.

    I also have the SP4 in my thoughts lol But I think it would be out of my budget with getting an amp to push that beast and well as electrical.

    Re: Time to upgrade

    What would be a nice size for the 15? AQ box specs list *****.. Says 3.00-4.75. I heard the HDC4s work well in the same size boxes are the HDC3s. I ran my 2 HDC3 10s in 3.12 cubes net and they were great.

    Stupid HDC4s and their D1 only......

    Re: Time to upgrade

    Im leaning towards 2 HDC3 12s on an AQ 3500 now. My idea for 1 15 was a smaller box around 3-3.5 cubes.

    Or maybe another brand monster 15 that requires a box around 3-3.5 cubes and thats D2 and able to handle 2000+ watts.

    Pretty much I want to get as loud as possible with around 3500rms and stay at or under 4 cubes.
