    Audioque, what to choose?

    I'm wonderin which sub I should go with and im not sure if i should go for the sdc2.5 at 2ohm or hdc3 at 1ohm? 15" subs ... I have a hifonics hfi1000.1d at the moment and not sure if I should go with the 1 ohm load. And would there be a big difference between the 600 vs 1000? Because there is a pretty big price difference. Or would it be better doing 2 sdc2.5 12's instead of the hdc315?

    Open to amp suggestions too for which ever set up, but im also trying to do some speakers off an amp as well so I dont wanna spend to to much.

    ^this, but off only 1200, the 2 15 sdc2.5s will do better.

    a strong motor will still do better then a weaker one even if the suspension is stiffer.

    I might go with that then. What about box size, and tuning for them?

    I would have liked to be able to use my amp now to keep the upgrade price down but I dont think it will be to bad if I can get a decent amount for my set up now...

    2-12"s sdc2.5 vs 1-15" hdc3

    Theyre basically the same price.

    Re: Audioque, what to choose?

    ah nice, probably should have looked around on their site. So 4-5 cubes. Should they be tuned to 36hz? I would just use the box calculator to make something to fit the trunk.

    Re: Audioque, what to choose?

    yea i used RE box calculator i am tuned to 34hz at 3.5 cubes and it sounds good I would of gone about 4.5 but i was limited on the trunk space... depending on the type of music you listen to 34-36hz should be good.

    your 1kw amp will be fine for 2 SDC's

    I ran my 12's in 4.5net @ 36Hz off a 1200D. Solid set up, sounded very good and did a 142 the one time I metered it....

    I say just get the HDC3. It will take 2k easily in the right box giving you plenty of overhead.

    Yeah my friend had a single 12" type r set up, it was louder than my set up now.. Im trying to convince him to get a sdc12 since his R got fried... I'm not really to concerned about the wow factor for one sub. Its basically the same price for 2 12 or 1 15 would they be similar in loudness?
