These SPL woofers are most impressive. Orion HCCA subwoofers might possibly be the baddest subs on the planet. Hands down. With its massive 4" high temp voice coil and immense motor, this subwoofer can reach as much as a 4" excursion. A higher excursion equals more bass! Orion HCCA subs have a long history of competition dating back 8-years or more. Why are they so efficient? Why are there so many positive reviews?

Orion made these subwoofers with extreme quality control. They listened to the SPL crowd and dished out a high powered durable subwoofer that can handle its own weight in a match. To keep your sub going Orion offers a field replaceable cone kit so your never out of the game. Everything on this woofer is enhanced from its voice coil cooling system to the conex spiders. This sub will take whatever you throw at it and trust us, it is power hungry.

Subwoofer Specifications

Subwoofer Series
Each subwoofer manufactured is part of a series. This is the name of the subwoofer's series.
Subwoofer Size
Refers to the diameter of the subwoofer, measured in inches.
10"
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.
3000 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.
1500 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.
4 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).
31 - 250 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".
84 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 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.
Silver
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.
Wide Foam
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.
0.5 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.
0.8 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.
1.2 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.
1.2 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.
8-1/2"
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.
9-3/8"
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.

Amazing subs!

December 24, 2011

This is an update from my initial review.

So, I have TWO of these 10.4's hooked up to a Memphis MCD-4k will ALL the trimmings. Upgraded wiring, fused properly, powered properly, and fed by a CLEAN signal, I have to say they're (expletive) AMAZING!

If you don't have them hooked up to AT LEAST 1500w rms, I don't think you really understand what these subs can do. I like to borrow someone else's description of how it sounds/looks. Standing outside of the car it looks like a gorilla is trying to bust out.

I haven't heard too many other subs, other than 4 15" Audio Q HDC3's on two RD D9's, that have been louder than my two 10.4's.

NOTE! YOU MUST UPGRADE YOUR ELECTRICAL SYSTEM TO USE 2 SUBS EFFECTIVELY!

Bada** 10" sub!

January 2, 2010

I bought two of the 10.4's and I'm using one in my "winter car" with a 3 cube box, and WOW... this sub is a BEAST! I have it hooked up to a 3000 watt rms amp and this sub loves the power!

As long as you don't use them in a sealed box and you have the proper electrical system, you will not be disappointed.

I love these subs!!

Amazing Sub

August 17, 2009

I would recommend this sub to anyone who wants a serious sub for a great price. Sounds amazing and hits hard. I've had it for about 6 months now and have had no problems with it at all. I plan on buying a few more of these to put in my other vehicles!

Sick sub

May 16, 2009

I got one of these about two weeks ago and got an MTX amp for it about a week ago and i haven't even pushed this sub hard yet and to be honest i don't think i ever will. oh and only ten minutes after the install was done i got the cops called on me. so far everyone that's heard my system has told me it's the best they've ever heard, then i show them what's in the trunk, they can't believe it's a single 10 doing that.

This sub is massive it weighs a ton and it can really move some air i have it hooked up to an arc audio 5500 wat amp... and between it and the sub im just about as loud as i was with my 2 kicker 12 inch L5s. This has a much better build quality then my kickers or RF subs ive had in the past

suprisingly loud

October 26, 2009

Purchased 2 10's and tried them out in a sealed box around .7cft a piece and they sounded pretty good. Surprisingly, they ran well even below minimum recommended power. Dont let the low spl per watt rating fool you.. they are very loud. The subs hit deep with good extension but lack in tightness/punch, make sure you have mids that kick out alot of tight mid bass to compensate. 6.5's or smaller wont cut it. ran each sub with a bd1000

Ultimate subwoofer!!!!

August 20, 2009

I bought two of these six months ago, and i was never disappointed. WE will try to enter in a SPL competition next two months, and I'm planning to get an orion 5000 class d amps to match my 2 10' orion hcca. Getting these for $200 is the best price and the best sub you'll ever had..

Thanks to sonic.

How would one of these compare to two JL Audio 10W3v3-4? (all in a sealed enclosure for better response)

Everything would hypothetically be powered by a Hifonics Hercules 4K amp. I'm wondering which will have the best sound. The JL has a lower response rate but then this orion just takes so much power. Thanks
