    American Bass XFL 15 or Orion HCCA 15 for my car?

    I'm working with a little over 6.5 cubes gross, I'd like to get a nice 15 in about 4 or 5 cubes probably tuning near 32hz with a very nice amount of port area as I've been told by many my current port is lacking. I have 1500watts rms to work with and I enjoy bass mostly under 50hz but probably between 30-45hz. If price was not an issue which one of these subs would you recommend for my specific application? Note this isn't a "vs thread" because I'm only asking for my systems needs in particular.

    Cheers.

    In my opinion this isn't really a fair comparison, the Hcca should walk on it. But if you're willing to pay for the Hcca there are better subs in that price range as well.

    Audioque hdc4, ia death penalty, ssa xcon, sundown zv3, to name a few. I've owned hcca 12s. Nice subs I just don't feel they perform to their cost. They don't sound good on music, kinda sloppy and all over the place. One good thing I liked about them is they play very low with authority.

    op. why just those two subs? are they being sold local or did you just like them. more specific goals would help, are you trying to get as loud as possible? sq? trying to smash lows? etc...

    I like to get loud between 25-45hz, I'm buying from overseas (australia) so my options are limited
