    zcon or hdc4

    I'm not looking to see which sub will take more power, I know that answer. I have a zx2500 to power either, which will give me better performance with this kind of power?

    Slot ported box in the trunk, Im looking for both sq and spl. Im leaning toward the zcon but let me know what you guys think.

    Im going to say the Zcon because they to me are more efficient power wise. The HDC4 can take a monsterous amount of power and would probably laugh at the 2500rms from that at. I mean the Hdc3 is rated at 1k but would take 3kw easily if you know what your doing. Honestly if you want to go Soundqubed id get the Hdc3 before i got the hdc4 with that power

    Re: zcon or hdc4

    Keep in mind the hdc4 will like a bigger box and more port area...and since they lowered the price on the hdc4 its crazy not to get it over the hdc3 ..it will be louder on the same power

    Re: zcon or hdc4

    I loved my hdc4's. Only thing I didn't like is that they bottomed out with the coil hitting the back plate pretty easily. No matter what enclosure I used, they did the same. Still great subs for the money though. Also, they were pretty efficient even for being 4" coils.

    How much power were you feeding them?

    Re: zcon or hdc4

    I knew a few ppl would say hdc4 because I see them but I never really see a zcon being ran. But at the same time every hdc4 I see that impresses me is running >3k. I'm thinking I see the hdc4 more because it is cheaper and can handle more power but neither of those matter to me.

    Both will work just fine in that range ..the zcon will be in the 2.25 to 2.5 range with a 14-16" of port per cube ..and the hdc4 will be in the 2.5 to 3 with 16-18" of port per cube
