    Re Xxx 12 Vs Re Hc 15

    How would the 12 inch XXX compare to a 15 inch HC? The HC is cheaper, which is ggood for me, but i don't want to have to upgrade soon, so i want something good. I want mainly SPL, but decent SQ, cause it is my daily driver. They would be in a ported box, as well. I don't have an amp yet either. What are some other sub recomendations? I was also theinking a Brahma 12. Help me out please.

    the HC 15 is the only choice.. any 12 cannot touch it output wise, in any box... the extra 8-12 mm of xmag will not overcome the displacement advantage of a 15" cone...

    so do you think it would be more worth my money to go with the HC 15? The SPL is louder on the HC 15, but how does the SQ compare?

    geeez.. am I that scary? lol

    Well.. Since I've owned both the HC 15, and the XXX 12... I do know

    the HC sounds very nice, esp ported... its a 15, with a decent efficiency, and a long stroke... while the XXX and Brahma 12" have a very potent stroke, and SQ capability, but they do not have the displacement ability, nor the efficiency that the 15 offers. You asked for mainly SPL, with some SQ.. the HC is the only choice...
