Default What size to choose for sq and lows plus small box

Im looking for that one perfect sub and just one to fit in my trunk and still have at most of space let

Ive had and aq1200d for almost two years now and i used to run it with 3 audiobahn 12s in my explorer but ive upgraded to a cadillac cts and they didnt fit so i traded for 2 crappy 12s which have long since blown.

ive been looking at the hdc310 for its power size and price but not sure if i can get the lows i want without having a huge box

should i get the 10 or go for a 12/15 in a medium box , which would be the best on (lows notes to box size ratio)?

Hdc3 is NOT for sq not matter what box you choose.

It depends how loud you want it. Larger sq subs, or multiples are good if you want a louder sq response.

Sql maybe?

But crisp sq?

I see how the OP is talking about a decent sounding loud daily but crisp sq is not the best route for these subs IMO. Yeah i've had a 12" hdc3 before.

Any good quality 10" or 12" would be fine. Not sure if a AQ sub could really be considered "SQ" though.

With that kind of power, I really like the Ascendant audio havoc. You can go sealed if you want a smaller box and flatter response.

I'm not really looking for amazing sq but I really don't what high spl to destroy my car so would the sdc2.5s be a better choice. And I know everyone says 15s go lower than 10 and 12s but if they are all rated the same does it really make a noticeable difference I know the box provideds most of the sound of the system

15s don't necessary go lower then 10's.. Reason people say 15's go lower is because they have more cone area so you feel the lows more. If you have 3 10's on 1.2k watts they should play lows comparable to 1 15 on 1.2 k watts as long as you tune the same. So as long as you tune low u should play low. But 2 15's on 1,200 watts is going to give much more lows then 1 10 or 12 on 1,200 watts..

I have 1 DD 9500 12 D1.5 supercharged on a DD m3a and a buddy of mine has 2 9515's D1's on a DD m1b (half the power of my amp) and he is MUCH louder then me. Last comp he did a 147+ at 28 hz on a 60 amp fuse. Lucky for him his truck peaks really low. Basically my point is that cone area plays a huge role.

AQ isn't really what you want if you are looking for SQ and a small box.

HDC3's are nice. I've ran one for over 2 years so I recommend them to anyone. But I would go the AA/FI route for this one. Maybe a Q?
