    been out of the game for while, looking to come back big

    Just as the title says I've been out the car audio game for a few months now. I broke a tinsel lead on my fi Q (user error), finally got around to sending it to Fi, and should be getting it back this week. I'll be selling it for $230 since is basically brand new (already sold).

    Now here comes the fun part, I also have a USAmps Xt4000d which I'll be getting rid of and most likely picking up either a zx1200.1 or a zx1500.1. I want to use this amp with something that is brutally loud, probably a single 15. The Q got loud enough for anyone's daily listening needs, I'm just a bass addict and want even more. My question is what 15 do you guys suggest I go with. I listen to rap and drum and bass, which means sq isn't as big of concern as spl is to me. My budget is $250-$300 and I don't want to go with a box much bigger than 4^3 ft.

    I've got a few subs in mind, but I want to hear what everyone has to say first. Sorry for the long post! and thanks in advance!

    IA looks a bit too pricey for what I'm looking to spend. Anyone else?

    I know it's cliche by now, but I had an Audioque HD3 a while back, and it was loud enough to make baby Jesus cry.

    I'd suggest looking into the HDC3s

    just get a pair of hd3c' 10''s and a kicker kx2500.1 ,, that should surely satisfy you.

    ssa icon15, or for a little more than your 300, the rlp-15
    you heard mine in a sealed box, but if you want to hear it in the 4 cubes box at 30hz i recently built, let me know. it might make up your mind lol

    1500 rms, 3-4^3 box tuned to 30-32 hz in the hatch of an rsx, which sub is going to make me happy as a daily street beater: 15'' L7, 15" HDC3, 15'' Fi BL

    SIngle 15" AQ HD3C on a AudioQue 2200 should bang hard enough for you, you got just enough room to make a decent size box for one.

    Doesnt the XT4000 make 1500watts at 1 ohm, I dont see the kicker as really an upgrade there. Unless you get a used 2500.1

    Otherwise get a 15" L7 and throw that XT4000 on it in 4 cubes with plenty of port area it should wang!

    Re: been out of the game for while, looking to come back big

    the xterminator line of usamps is over rated, found that out after i bought it. supposed to do 900-1000rms @ 1 ohm . so i think i've narrowed it down to either an hdc3 15 or an L7 15. pros and cons of both?
