    Re: fi BTL 15 vs Audioaue HD3 15

    i would personally go with aq... but thats me...

    yes the hd3 is alot like dd's 9500's...

    HOWEVER... it does not have as good as efficiency at disbursing heat. so it can only take so much power past 4kw...
    and it has different suspension...
    other than that it is built by the son of the owner of dd ( jassa)

    thats my 2 cents....

    both of these subs are more on the spl side of the spectrum...

    many have people have said < 2500rms = HD3, or regular BTL, > 2500RMS Loaded BTL

    theres also that 2 yr warranty on the AQ, although you will probably never use it, and none on the BTL...but flip a coin...

    this exact comparison has been mentioned at least 3 times already...one by me so searching would be a good thing...

    Like others have said... with a coin flip Im sure you would be happy either way. They are both quite capable subs in a proper instal.

    Thanks...

    Id go with the btl with cooling. That driver is designed to be beaten on a daily basis.

    Also the aQ's fs is really high if its like a dd which would make it less desireable for a daily

    1x 15" or 4 x 15" either way your gonna suffer in the sq department, jl subs sound good.and if its just 1 x15 spl will be down as well

    just wanted to comment on this- it is WRONG. owner of audioque is the father of owner of dd, not son... other than that, im sure jmanjr will chime in soon, telling you to get audioque, and contact jerimiah about the box, yada,yada,yada... id go with audioque as well...
