    is it bad for 10s to be 4" coils? is there still enough room for the spider to move?

    Depends on a few things. Spider size type material, motor being used, coil being used....blah blah... Lol I think its a bit over kill, but it is possible to make it work with the right combination.

    Power HX2 10 uses a 4" coil with a single 8.5" spider. Beastly little subs and they get down.

    totally depends the basket.
    tc sounds sure cause you have 8.5" spider and another big one is cone to spider room.

    it can be done on other baskets sure but WONT be a high excursion sub, a power hx2 or power dvc is far from a high excursion sub.
