Here’s a powerful subwoofer that won’t break the bank. With the more affordable Orion HCCA 152, you will not have to compromise power for sound quality. This 15-inch, 82-pound monster is everything you want out of a sub and worth every penny.
If we had to choose (we do actually) we'd still go with the 12" version of this same sub which has made it consistently over 3 years in a row into our list of the best SPL subs.
- Size: 15"
- RMS: 2,000 Watts
- Peak Power: 5,000 Watts
- Sensitivity: 87 dB
- Frequency response: 21-100 Hz
- Impedance: Dual 2ohms
Power and Sensitivity
With an RMS of 2,000 Watts and peak power at 5,000, this is another competition sub guaranteed to make you the most hated person in your neighborhood.
To put it simply, it’s really f***ing loud. Sorry, you can only emphasize something so much without swearing.
This monster is power-hungry and a bit needy. It will require you to upgrade your alternator to 200-amp minimum, upgrade the big 3, as well as get an extra battery.
Big power requires a little extra electric love, but you can trust that it will be worth your while for a sound so big, passersby will be able to see your car rattling all the way down the block.
Voice Coils and Cone
The biggest difference between this model of the Orion HCCA and the previous is the enhanced voice coil system. The black dual voice coils included in this model are some of the most sophisticated on the market, providing superior heat dissipation.
The sub has dual 2-ohm coils, so you have a couple options for wiring. You can either wire it at 4 ohms or 1 ohm. A crucial factor to take into consideration is if you opt for the 4 ohms you’ll have to spend more on the amplifier to power it.
The Orion HCCA 152 model is perfect if you want big power but don’t want to spend your life’s savings for it. If the Hooligan and JL Audio model were out of your price range, then this option would be much more reasonable.
Aside from the specs described above, some additional features of this sub are its polypropylene cone woofer, the rubber tri-radius symmetrical surround and the dual flat conex spiders.
This competition sub is top-notch for better affordability.
