I'm looking to purchase a new 18" sub. I have roughly $350 to work with, but am stuck between a Soundqubed HDC3 or the Fi BL. I've had an Fi SSD 12" and loved that thing, so I'm somewhat familiar with the Fi build. I've never owned anything Soundqubed (Audioque), but have heard them in action a few times.

The sub will run off an AQ 2200.1D. I have plenty of electrical upgrade power. Upgraded 170 amp alternator, XS Power Big 3, slightly larger hood battery, all XS Power 0 gauge, 3 Kinetik HC600s in the back. All in a '97 Acura Integra. I have plenty of space for a 5-10 cube box. So, there's only one question...

DO I GET THE HDC3 OR THE FI BL???

What music do you mostly listen to?

My experience has been: FI sub more pronounced on the lows/better for rap, SQ sub better for mid/upper bass and more musical on real music.

Ran a FI Q for years in the wife's ride and switched to SQ last year and it's MUCH better for the music she listens to...
