    Have you ever seen what kind of numbers he does in his vehicles with aq motors and aq softparts?

    No i never said they cant do good numbers..... But if i throw the 4k at my hdc3 18. Its not gonna end well. Also again i have seen multiple people gain just from recone by itself with out changing anything else. Usually between 1 & 1.5 db difference on same power.

    I've built 2 160+ daily/demo vehicles with AQ subs. My daily beater trunk car is a single HDC4 18 off 2 3500's that does a 54.9 in the kick and gets pounded on daily since it was built to play music, not burp.

    I've reconed AQ/DD subs with other brand recones, some gained a lilttle, some didn't, most of them smoked also. Of course I have guys on my team that blow up EVERY brand out there.

    Will you have 4kw clamped or a 4kw amp? BIG difference...

    Get an HDC4 18 while they're still on sale, problem solved.

    Just saw an HCD4 18" in action here on only 2000 watts. VERY impressive. I'm not much of a competition guy but this thing was LOUD! And it sounded good doing it. Like I said, I'm not a high powa comp guy but I like to run around 1200 watts or so. Next subs are gonna be some 12" HDC 2.5's for the wife's minivan.

    Nice. Again im gona say it cant be done. Im gona say the hdc3 i have is not gonna take my memphis very well without having a recone. I had it hooked to a DTR3400 @ 1 ohm and the sub didnt like it very much. I could here some metal slapping while playing. So give or take on music that was probly about 1400 or 1600 rms.

    honestly i would get a hdc4 18 but they dont come in d2 and i dont have the money

    what were specs on that enclosure? Only way I could see that happening is being tuned upper 30's and playing mid/upper 20's full tilt.

    If you plan on burping/competing I'd keep the 4k and just dial it back a little for daily. No 3" VC is going to take 4kw daily, but with rise you're not going to have that much power on hand.

    You could run the HDC4 @ 2ohm daily and .5 for burps....

    so you would be fine with an HDC. I'd personally do an alum coil.

    I run 2 of the old AQ3500's on my HDC4. I have plenty of electrical. I can play a 3-4 minutes full tilt, but sub will get a little stinky. Even with rise I'm throwing a lot of power at it for daily.

    Dialed back a little I can play it song after song....

    Great to know, I definitely que'd in when you mentioned that earlier. Hopefully my 12 will fair as well as your 18.

    It's yet to break any kind of sweat what-so-ever playing on my BXi2100 .5 ohm load. No voice coil smell what so ever.

    Now it's more of a matter of running one Kicker ZX2500 or strapping the 2 Hifonics Amps together(for roughtly 4k). I have it in a 2 cu ft box tuned to 33hz and the output is now where near its max capabilities but the excursion is pretty crazy.
