    Here's a comparison photo with my Type R.

    Soundqubed subs like bigger boxes. Put it in 5-6 cubes after displacement and watch it shine

    4" coil simply isn't as efficient as 3", but folks seem to think that whatever gear has the highest power rating on the package must be the best. It's the same thing that was going on in the 80's with the Chinese made flea market junk. The average car audio consumer is predictable if nothing else.

    Re: zcon or hdc4

    I wanted to give it a shot. I can get it moving really well with only 2k in a big box, but for some reason I'm not getting the output I'm after. It was worth the test.

    I think this as well but I've seen people say it isn't true. Is there any proof?

    Yes, the 4" coil weighs a lot more and it also sacrifices motor force

    The ZCON is still more efficient than a HDC 3, too. It's got quite a bit of motor force.

    So you're saying BL is what makes one sub more efficient than another?

    Not exclusively, but yes it plays a role in efficiency.

    Talk to some people who have done R&D and testing. Also pay attention to the people dominating in the lanes. The lion's share of the biggest numbers are 3" coil subs, you can bet that if 4" would be louder even at those huge power levels Butler, Dante, etc. would be switching out of their DD-Z's in a hurry.

    just so you know they rerated the hdc3 to 1500...

    Re: zcon or hdc4

    ok, for the op.... imo it would be win win for either sub.... imo the zcon is cleaner than the hdc4 and is quite beastly, but the hdc4 is a monster on the lows... I had 1 12 on a kx2500 and the thing wanted to open my rear doors from the trunk....


    zcon- clean and powerful.....
    hdc4- not as clean but monster on the lows and loud as all hell, just not as musical....

    either is a great choice... guess it depends on what your going for... im sure you would be happy either way... I regret to this day selling my hdc4....

    oh and my box wasnt that big either had it in a 2.2cu or around there lol box was made for a sa12... lol tuned to 33hz and big krit wanted to tear my car to pieces....
