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 you're 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.

  • 12" Dual 2 Ohms HCCA Series Subwoofer
  • Power Handling:
    • Peak: 4000 watts
    • RMS: 2000 watts
  • Impedance: Dual 2 ohms
  • Polypropylene cone
  • Wide foam surround
  • Dual Flat Conex Spiders with Loop/Stitched Tinsel Lead
  • Field Replaceable Cone / Voice coil / Spider Assembly
  • 4 copper Wound Voice Coil on an Aluminum Former, High temperature PAARC (Polyester Amide, Amide Resin Coated)
  • Enhanced voice coil cooling system (forced convection aluminum heat sinking shorting rings to reduce inductive heating)
  • Sensitivity: 84 dB
  • If you blow the subwoofer, there is a replacement cone kit that allows you to easily swap out the blown/burned voice coil and surround with a new one. The replacement kit allows you to keep the magnet and basket, therefore saving money as you do not need to buy a new sub.

Subwoofer Specifications

Subwoofer Size
Refers to the diameter of the subwoofer, measured in inches.
12"
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
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).
24 - 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
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
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.
10-3/8"
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.
11-1/2"
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.

The BEST.

October 28, 2009

These subs are the last subs you need to buy. Durable, recone kits if you do happen to burn it ($100 to recone a $600 sub = value) which I don't see happening unless it's a malfunction or error in the install. I've got 2 in a sealed box built to factory specs. At this point I regret going sealed because I could get much higher SPL, but regardless they hit clean and hard. Plan on major upgrades to your electrical system though. These subs are no joke.

awesome sub hands down

September 28, 2009

ive had one for about 6 months now. hits the lows better than any sub ive heard without a doubt. im powering mine with a kole audio kx4000 wired down to 1 ohm so its pushing a solid 2200 watts to the sub. never over heated it. never blown a fuse. not 1 problem. i think this speaker is no doubt worth every penny.

SUPERB!!!

September 3, 2009

This is the best sub on the market I actually researched different drivers for about 3 years before deciding on these beasts(due to not having a license). This sub is amazing I had two and got rid of one and now i have it powered by the kole audio phanatik 5500 watt amp in a 5.0 cubic foot box tuned to 32 hz and the lows are amazing I might need to replace my window seals soon.

HCCA 12.2 lives up to the Orion name

August 19, 2009

This sub is a beast. I had this sub in a prefabed box that had a 1" baffle, this sub tore that box apart. I have to get a different box, a better box. The gain on the amp was set to 2 volts, the pre amp outs are 4 volts, so the amp gain was set low and the sub was not getting the full power of the amp (which is 3200 watts rms). Just a plain mean and brutal sub.

August 4, 2009

I have to say this is the best sub on the market and sonic have the best price.I have this monster hooked up to an Mtx 1501d 3000 watt monoamp and it hits like thunder .T he best thing about it is that it have cooloing system and the cone is replaceable it's a life time product. If you want real music ,this is the sub but make sure you have a powerful amp.

Mr. Orion

July 31, 2009

This is truly the best subwoofer in my opinion. I got 1 of these in my chevy tracker on a hifonics BXi 2610d at 1 ohm and it is so much bass coming out of this woofer its ridiculous. When i go to people houses they tell me i shake pictures on their wall twenty feet away. The boys in my neighborhood recently throw a bass competition contest and it was people their with 2 15's and 4 12's and i blew everyone out the frame with 1 12'. Im working on getting me a second woofer and amp now. Cant wait!

July 8, 2009

This is not only the heaviest sub I have ever had but it is the best great response on the low end of the hz. I have it in a custom box designed by Pete at pwkdesigns and it is being pushed by a Hifonics Bxi 2610d at 1 ohm 2600 watts rms and it is very very loud to say the least. The only drawbacks for me was the weight obviously and the fact that you can't just go buy a box for this it has to be custom other than that its the loudest and best looking sub I have ever owned.

The sub I got hits really hard and on deeper bass which is what I like better. The only downfall is it weighs 75 lbs. But I got it for under 400 so it was worth it.

April 20, 2009

Just got one put in my car about 2 weeks ago. I have it hooked up with the d5000 orion amp. After hearing this I am hooked on orion. Man if you want bass you got it with this sub. All you need is one and it will blow your mind. Its hard to even listen to a full song with a lot of bass. Easily the best buy on this site. You want bass you got it with this!!

Orion 12.2

February 9, 2009

I got this sub installed a couple days ago and man it hits soooo hard. I only have it hooked up to Hifonics bxi1208D amp but it still thumps. I recommend it to any one. The only down side is you have to buy a custom box but that's not to bad considering how great the sub is its definitely worth it and it looks cool.

GREAT SUB!!!

March 6, 2008

I just got this sub installed today, paired to the Orion D5000. Let me tell you - this sub POUNDS!! The 4" excursion makes for incredibly strong bass. (check out videos on youtube of this thing in action). This sub is SOO loud I couldn't ask for more for this price. Somewhat surprisingly, the SQ of this sub is really good as well. Either as a big bass note in a rap song or just a bassline in a rock song, this sub sounds great. It's well worth the price, if you want to get noticed.
