    What is comparable to a 15" RE HC

    I just bought my 15" RE HC and have yet to hook it up. I havent heard one before, but have heard tons of good things about RE on this forum, so I figured I would give it a try. I was wondering what Mainstream sub this would compare to? I am gonna put it in a 4 ft^3 ported enclosure, with a bx1500d. Also, if you think i should change either of those, let me know. Thanks

    Re: What is comparable to a 15" RE HC

    I really can't give any woofers comparable to it. I am running one in a 4cuft box tuned to 30hz and it can get really loud. It shakes the crap out of my car and sound pretty good doing it. It has an extremely good low end too it but I noticed it doesn't play upper frequencies too well (like most 15's ). I would set the crossover at around 70hz and you should be fine.

    Re: What is comparable to a 15" RE HC

    Alrite thanks...i love bass, but the space my 3 15"s were takin up was just too much. They werent very good tho, nasty RF subs with horrible sq. I hoping I wont lose too much bass since the wattage is about the same and this is a much better sub with a better amp that I will be putting to it. Will it still make my Expedition rattle, and this is a clean sub i've heard, is that right?

    depending on your previous box/subs/power, the hc could get louder, it will more than likely have better sq than the rf's as well......on 15hc should be enough for you in a expedition, what kinda box is it going in?
