    Soundqubed HDC3 12" in 33hz box

    I got an alpine type r 12 and an amazing box made from Starr Mountain Sound, I was flexing windows of a local business with just one 12 on less then 1000 watts. But I want to be able to safely stay that louder then 1500 now so I want to get an HDC3 12 and just put it in the box I have considering I just recently got it a few weeks ago. It is tuned to 33hz and 2cu feet. 32x15x14 I think it was, but I could be off. I want to run around 1500+watts daily to it.

    Im not sure if the hdc3 has changed at all since AQ changed to SQ, but i dont think i would throw one in a box tuned quite that low they dont like it too much

    I read online that this person put his in a small box tuned to 30 hz and it slapped hard so I'm debating cause I have heard different things

    Im tuned at 32 with my hdc4.s and rhey have a fs of 41 lot higher than the hdc3 ..thy murder the lows ...in thing is that box isnt big enough and probably doesnt have enough port to suite a hdc3

    How much port area per cube? As far as tuning you could cut the port shorter to raise tuning a few hz and gain some box volume...

    Ive had both and the hdc3 actually did get down when it broke in but I still tuned at 37 or higher or believe. I have a couple hdc4 18s that im trying to get rid of, never tried tuning too low and honestly id be scared to theyre still stiffer than chit
