Subwoofer Specifications

Subwoofer Series
Each subwoofer manufactured is part of a series. This is the name of the subwoofer's series.
HCCA (Orion)
Subwoofer Size
Refers to the diameter of the subwoofer, measured in inches.
15"
Peak Power Handling
Peak power handling refers to the amount of power a speaker can handle during a brief musical burst. The RMS power range figure is a much more reliable rating for determining the speaker's power requirements. The Peak power handling specification is typically rated per speaker unless otherwise noted.
4000 watts
RMS Power Handling
The RMS power is the amount of power the speaker requires to operate safely and properly. RMS Power Handling refers to the amount of power a speaker can handle on a continuous basis. We recommend powering your speakers or subwoofer with 80%-120% of its recommended RMS rating. The RMS power handling specification is typically rated per speaker unless otherwise noted.
2000 watts
Voice Coil(s)
Dual voice coil subs have more wiring flexibility than single voice coils subs; however, single voice coil subwoofers provide easier hookup options for wiring multiple subwoofers in parallel or series. You may also run a dual voice coil (DVC) sub in parallel, series, or combination. A quad voice coil has four voice coils and is equal to two dual voice coil subwoofers as far as wiring goes.
Dual
Impedance (Per Voice Coil)
The load value (in ohms) that the speakers present to the amplifier per voice coil - the amount of resistance to the current flow. This is a key specification as subs wired in parallel or low impedances can create problems with your amplifier and potentially void all warranties. We encourage you to ask our support department prior to purchase if you do not understand which impedance level will suit your application best.
2 ohms
Voice Coil Diameter
Diameter of voice coil, usually measured in inches.
Frequency Response
The range of frequencies the speaker will reproduce (lowest frequency to the highest). Bigger is better, meaning the wider the range, the better. The optimal range is 20 - 20,000 Hz (which is the range of human hearing).
21 - 100 Hz
Sensitivity
An efficiency or sensitivity rating tells you how effectively a speaker converts power into sound. The higher the number, the more efficient the speaker and the louder it will play with the same input power. An efficient speaker helps you maximize your available power. Most sensitivity ratings measure the speaker's output with 1 watt of input, 1 meter from the speaker. Some speakers' sensitivity is measured with 2.83 volts of input, instead of 1 watt.
 
Efficiency (1w/1m) is not an accurate indicator of a subwoofer's output capability and should not be used as a comparison to other speakers or subwoofers to determine which one is "louder".
87.2 dB
Xmax (millimeters)
Typically measured in millimeters, the Xmax value is the measure of a speaker cone's maximum excursion in one direction while maintaining a linear behavior.
30.18 mm
Subwoofer Design
This is the design of the subwoofer or the opening of the subwoofer enclosure. Each design has it's own benefits, whether it is a square, circle, or oval.

Round/Circle: This is the typical and common subwoofer design. They have a round cone and are a circle in design.

Square: These woofers are able to achieve a greater cone area in a smaller space. Because of the greater surface area, some square subwoofers will be louder than a round subwoofer of the same size.

Round / Circle
Main Cone Color
This is the color of the speaker's or subwoofer's cone.
Black
Woofer Composition
Lightweight woofer cone materials are essential for efficient operation. Poly cones produce exceptional sound and are sturdy against various changes in temperature. Paper cones are very efficient, and when treated for moisture resistance, will perform at a high level. Poly refers to polypropylene, which is thermoplastic or fibers that are polymers of propylene. IMPP refers to injection molded polypropylene, a commonly used process and material in speakers.
Polypropylene
Woofer Surround
A speakers surround is part of the suspension system. The surround protects the cone and prevents it from being displaced as it flexes out from the basket. It is usually made of a durable material like treated foam or rubber in order to withstand the strenuous job of producing bass frequencies.
Rubber
Magnet Structure
Defines the overall structure of the subwoofers magnet.
Subwoofer Grille
Most subwoofers are able to accommodate a universal grille; however, some subs include a grille and others have a specific, optional grille available for purchase separately. If "yes", then the subwoofer includes a grille. If "optional (sold separately)" the matching grille will need to be purchased in addition to the sub.
No
Re-Cone Kit Available
Some higher end subwoofers have replaceable cone assemblies. In case of a blown woofer, a recone kit allows for a simple replacement, as opposed to purchasing an entire new subwoofer.
Yes (Accessory available and sold separately)

Recommended Enclosure Specifications

Recommended Enclosure Type
This is the recommended type of enclosure that the subwoofer should be installed into. Some subwoofers are specially designed for particular enclosures.

Sealed: These enclosures completely enclose the air inside the box. These boxes produce a tight bass.

Ported/Vented: These enclosures have a slot of air to escape from the box. The result is a sound that has more "boom".

Bandpass: These are a combination of both sealed and ported enclosures. They can be very efficient, but require tuning for the best response.

Ported / Vented
Sealed
Minimum Sealed Box Volume
This value indicates the minimum sealed box volume that the manufacturer recommends for the subwoofer. The volume is typically displayed in cubic feet.
1.9 cubic feet
Optimum Sealed Box Volume
This value indicates the ideal sealed box volume that the manufacturer recommends for the subwoofer. The volume is typically displayed in cubic feet.
Maximum Sealed Box Volume
This value indicates the maximum sealed box volume that the manufacturer recommends for the subwoofer. The volume is typically displayed in cubic feet.
2.5 cubic feet
Minimum Ported Box Volume
This value indicates the minimum ported box volume that the manufacturer recommends for the subwoofer. The volume is typically displayed in cubic feet.
3.5 cubic feet
Optimum Ported Box Volume
This value indicates the ideal ported box volume that the manufacturer recommends for the subwoofer. The volume is typically displayed in cubic feet.
Maximum Ported Box Volume
This value indicates the maximum ported box volume that the manufacturer recommends for the subwoofer. The volume is typically displayed in cubic feet.
3.5 cubic feet
Top-Mount Depth
The depth when installed on top of the mounting surface. Measured from the bottom of the speaker's magnet to the bottom of the mounting holes on the rim of the speaker.
11-9/116"
Cutout Diameter
The actual diameter of the hole you will need to cut out if you are creating a new mounting location for this speaker, or if you are mounting a subwoofer in a box.
11"
Shallow Mount Installation
This means that the subwoofer/speaker is designed to be installed in areas that do not have a lot of space. Shallow mount subwoofers are typically found under a seat or behind the seat in some trucks.

Shallow mount speakers will typically have a mounting depth of 2" or less, while shallow mount subwoofers will typically have a mounting depth of 3" or less.

No

Electromechanical Parameters

Free-Air Resonance (Fs)
The free-air resonance frequency of the subwoofer, measured in Hz. At this frequency the weight of the moving parts is perfectly balanced with the subwoofers suspension system.
Equivalent Compliance (Vas)
This is the amount of air that has the same stiffness as the subwoofers suspension. The greater the rating, the lower the stiffness and larger recommended enclosure. It is measured in Liters.
Total Speaker Q Value (Qts)
This is the subwoofers relative damping (Q) at the resonance frequency (Fs), including all dimensionless losses. Essentially, a high Qts value (closer to 1.0) means the subwoofer is great for sealed enclosures and a low Qts value (closer to 0) means the woofer is great in vented enclosures. A Qts of around 0.45 means the woofer will work decently in either enclosure type.
Electrical Q Value (Qes)
The subwoofers relative damping (Q) at the resonance frequency (Fs), including electrical losses. Also called the mechanical damping of the subwoofer. The unitless measurement usually varies from 0.5 10.
Electrical Resistance of Voice Coil (Re)
Amount of DC resistance of the subwoofer when measured with an ohm meter. Typically, this will read less than the impedance rating of the subwoofer.
Mechanical Q Value (Qms)
This is the subwoofers relative damping (Q) at the resonance frequency (Fs), including mechanical losses. Also called the mechanical damping of the subwoofer. This unitless measurement usually varies from 0.5 10.
Efficiency Bandwidth Product (EBP)
This number represents the trade off between having an efficient woofer and one with a wide bandwidth. To calculate this number, take the Fs and divide it by the Qes. If the number is below 50, the woofer is designed for a sealed enclosure only. If it's between 50-100 it can be used in either. Lastly, if it's greater than 100 it's designed for vented enclosures.

Worked great

June 3, 2012

I had two of these in my 04 Chevy Cavalier on two Hifonics 2000 watt amplifiers at 1 ohm. They hit 147.6 decibels in standard competition and 158.3 decibels at the port. In the right box, these subs will kill the competition. I had them mounted facing forward, so that wasn't a problem. These subs are built.

Beauty and BEAST.

April 1, 2009

This sub is godly! I have this sub running off of a Hifonics 2610 mono amp running 2,600 watts and it FREAKING POUNDS SO HARD, not to mention it also sounds really good...suprisingly. I played the song called "HOODS RUN DOWN" by Lil Wyte, which has a bass check and this thing went on I swear a 4 and a half inch excursion which was incredible to watch If you don't know to much about car audio, then don't worry you cannot go wrong with this sub, it can take whatever you throw at it, and if it does blow just buy a recone kit for it and your good to go, unlike most other subs like a rockford T2 for instance which you would have to buy a whole new sub if it blew. Oh and for everyone out there who thinks you need to buy a bigger alternator to run somthing this powerful, your wrong. Just buy a deep cycle battery from the auto store, or get one of the kinetik or stinger batteries and wire it in parallel with you current car battery and also use at least a 5 farad capacitor and you'll be fine. This works because when the alternator can't prouduce enough current to supply the amp then it will start pulling from the battery also, and if you have another nice battery this will make up for the rest of the power that the alternator cannot produce. Trust me this is what I did and I'm hitting over 150db no problem and my electrical system doesn't drop below 11.5 volts

pure awesomeness

June 20, 2014

This sub is amazing. For $420 (sale price I paid) its so much more then I expected. This thing gets LOUD. I have it in a sealed 3.5 cu box tuned to 38hz and its nuts. Best part is it could be so much louder, need a bigger car first.
The power handling is ridiculous. It EATS the power I'm giving it. I have a hifonics brx 2000.1
I couldn't be more happy with this speaker. Buy it

This sub

September 8, 2013

This sub can handle any amount of power you wanna push to it. It's heavy, huge surround, huge magnet, love the Allan terminals. I'm pushing 2500 watts rms to one right now and I plan on buying two and running 5000 watts rms to both. Good sub, not that musical but has monster bass.

Honestly, the hcca speaks for itself. I have heard these subs many times and all the times i have heard them they sounded great on music! Only thing bad, these things get hot FAST. Was talking to a friend and he said his hcca got pretty hot after only about 5 mins of playing music. Other then that downfall great subs!

Monsters!

September 20, 2010

I have 2 of these monsters in my 2004 DTS with a custom fiberglass housing. I cracked that the fiberglass, blew my rearview mirror off, and I lost about 30% of my hearing ha ha. I tell all my friends to get a set because the sound quality is very good. My system sounds like I have two Joe Pesci's in my trunk slap boxing. Check me out on cardomain user name D_Boy313.

INSANE!!!!!!

August 26, 2010

I would reccomend this sub-woofer to anyone really serious about banging bass!!!!! I installed ONE of these massive speakers in my Jeep Grand Cherokee along with an Orion HCCA D-5000 and im able to flex my roof! The only downs are you need a custom built box and A LOT of real POWER to achieve the 4 inches of max excursion.

great super woofer

December 19, 2009

The HCCA series of subs are a true heavyweight(NO DOUBT ABOUT IT )But the plus is that it sounds very good also. I only know of one maybe two other subs(RE AUDIO XXX for sure, and maybe the PIONEER beast woofer)that can out perform the ORION. BUT the ORION has world class performance at about half the price of these other 2 super woofers I mentioned. My current setup is (4)of the new HCCA -15",(4) US AMPS AX-2000'S(ONE PER SUB),(4)KINETIK 16V. BATT.(for amps),(2)kinetik 2400hc,under hood. Plus all my mids, midbass, and high freq. drivers. All this is in my Excursion. Last show I went to, I did a 158.3 on a B&K. Oh and I did it at 40HZ!!!!!!!!!HIGHLY RECOMENDED

Orion is the Way 2 Go

April 19, 2012

I heard many subs and spent a load of cash on car audio products, and finally got an Orion. I'm finally happy with the Orion; it's in the right box and has the power to push with proper RMS. You probably won't even be able to handle the sub. If you're thinking of buying one, just get it!
