Audioque HDC4.0 12

Recommended Posts

I just got the AQ 4.0 3 days ago and with stock alt and battery, it gets loud. Running an Alpine v-power 2000 at it at 2 ohms, great sub but very power hungry. Could sound a little better, and read another forum they are mainly constructed for COMPETITIVE use, handling up to 8k for a burp. Highly recommend if interested in the 12s class.

its a pro box super bass series so its 2.25^3 it should be bigger but dont have time to build a new one.

 

there is your issue with performance and sound.

 

When that sub was being finished up we tested it in many many enclosures at AQ and it performs amazingly well in a custom enclosure designed around the sub, power, application, and goals. Yes, they can take a large amount of power and get very loud for competition use, but that is not it's only use.

I loved my two 12" aq hdc4's. They sounded amazing and got extremely loud at low frequencies.

do you like the 18s? i have the 12 because i got ahold of it for $200 and it cranks out the music i like to listen to (dubstep) well. also im a bit limited to my air space but willing to sacrafice my backseats if i needed to later down the road.

i had to get rid of my backseats to get this shizz in there, they are stupid loud and arent even broken in i got an awesome deal on them from a buddy of mine, i wont even get to hear their full potential till after i loosen the coils a bit, did a burp today score in my sig im expecting better results after break-in

      First post here;)
       
      I currently have 1 Hifonics Brutus BRZ1700.1D that puts out 1700WRMS @ 1Ohm @14.4Volts. It is CEA-2006 rated so it does the power and may be a bit more. I am planning on grabbing a second one, and was wondering if I bridge these together using an MLX-100, will it be able to push 2x 3512e nicely?
       
      That would be 1700+1700 @ 2Ohm = 3400WRMS @ 2Ohm (I am correct right?).
       
      I see a lot of you guys pushing 1500WRMS daily and sometimes a lot more.
       
      Or should I just simplify everything and get an Audioque AQ3500D.1? That is 4300WRMS @ 1Ohm @ 14.4V. How are these amps? I wouldn't run at full power but somewhere around 1500-1700WRMS each sub I heard is a good start.
       
      Thank you very much guys!
       
      Oh by the way upgraded electrical 320amp Alternator, Two Yellow Tops, and 1/0 Knu all around before I even drop anything more in. That is my next project.

      I am selling my Image Dynamics SPL 15 that is in great shape and sounds excellent!This sub is extremely rare and there is only 6 of them ever made.These were made by Image Dynamics,not just a recone on a motor.This has the same specs as the Atomic APXX but I was told this is actually bigger.I have two of the APX 15's and is bigger than those.There is only one terminal but is a quad voice coil,the coils are wired internally .This sub is a BEAST and with the right box and power will pull some great numbers!The specs are the same as the Atomic APXX,I bought it but really didnt need it.I figured it would make someone a great competition sub or great daily listening.The sub is in great condition and has a some spots on the back of the motor and is only cosmetic the rest of the sub is perfect!This sub will kill your W7's,9500's and most of the competition out there!
       
      I may accept trades,I am mostly looking for amps,large blown amps,wire,HO alternator.
       
      Here are the specs:
       
       
      * Super eXTREME SPL competition woofer
      * high sensitivity, extreme efficient motor to ensure high SPL possible
      * Rigid Die cast aluminum basket
      * Organic long fiber non-pressed cone body for accurate tight bass
      * Highly damped Kevlar and carbon fiber reinforced cone body
      * triple layers foam surround increase the power capacity of woofer
      * Extended neck joints on cone, coil and spider strengthen the integrity of moving structure for high power capacity
      * Compressed mounting ring gasket
      * vented coil for extra heat dissipation
      * 3 inch high temp aluminum voice coil
      * extended, machined cut one piece back plate
      * Powerful double stacked high energy magnet
      * over 2-1/2 inch long excursion motor structure
      * reinforced resin impregnated polycotton spider extend the life span of the speaker from material fatigue and collapse.
      * integrated heavy duty lead wire on spider prevent short circuit and melt down
      * dome shape dust cap design
      * low carbon front and back plate
      * Vented magnetic gap technology
      * Laser etched, machined and chromed back plate
       
       
       
      Make me any reasonable offer,I need the cash for wiring and a new alternator.
