    Audioque hdc3 are they really that good

    Im in the market to replace my 15" Sx..ive been asking around the forum and i keep hearing about the hdc3..are they really that good..will i hear a significant difference in spl then with my Sx? Hows the sq? i dont want it to be any worse than my sx is..also the hdc3 would be getting about 500 more watTs (1700) since ill get the dual 2 ohm instead of dual 4 like i have now..can t ahndle that type of power daily.. Also what size box and tuning is optimal for the 15" let me know what you guys think..i dont want to go through the trouble of sellin my sx and buyin this one if its not worth it..the sub does look beastly tho and you cant beat that price. Thanks

    SQ is good enough for a basshead, SPL should be good. I'm just basing this off wat i heard tho. Just do it man, it's cheap enough

    Re: Audioque hdc3 are they really that good

    you guys really need to take JimJ's opinion with a grain of salt.

    JimJ is never going to be impressed with an spl based sub. they are designed to be more peaky, etc. JimJ is all about the SQ. i would take his word though, when looking to buy SQ subs.
    not trying to put words in your mouth JimJ, just posting my observation

    Re: Audioque hdc3 are they really that good

    agreed w/jimj & george. i liked teh HD3 because they'd eat power & sound amazing (for an SPL oriented sub) doing it.. teh HDC3 is much different.
