    for short bursts you "should" be fine if the signal is clean, no bass boost, etc...

    Mine got stinky the other day after about 15 minutes straight of LOW bass songs, but that's to be expected...

    Dj advised the copper hdc318 would hang with the aq3500 for 30 seconds of bassrace, he recommended a smaller than normal enclosure to help it out though.

    My hdc318 copper took my aq2200 fine with no stinky and didn't come close to reaching mechanical limits, but it was not broken in yet either.

    Recones for it are cheap, so you won't be out much money if you get outta control with it.

    I wouldn't use the word "daily" so freely, too many different ways to perceive it.

    As I say in every thread, use common sense and good judgment. If the sub starts to smell, then turn the volume down.

    Should be ok with 3kw, having the over head is ok, just dont expect to be beating down all day on it with 3kw. Each of my 15"s have 2kw going to them and they get barely warm, only stinky after a good 20 minutes [3 or 4 heavy bass songs at 90% volume, 100% volume (before clipping) my HU skips ]

    VERY true. I listen at 50% volume the majority of the time. I have fed them full power for 2-4 songs in a row now and then with no issues. Got a little stinky the first time, but it could have been the glue as they were freshly reconed.

    Besides I'm old and can't listen that loud for very long anyway

    hey how come my new HDC3 15 didnt come with the slip that tells you to break it in for 10-12 hours? I have been pretty scared to crank it up, because I figure it really needs the break in.
