New HDS3.1 VS Old HDS3

HDS3 vs HDS3.1

Box - 5^ft NET tuned at 30hz.
Amp: 2200W @1 Ohm
The HDS3.1 160oz motor Gauss's out 1000(G) or 1 Tesla (T) more than the 145oz HDS3 motor.
Giving it better power handling and more efficiency.



Below is a general overview of the data: Stamped uses an average of 5.9% less power below 40 hz to be .13 dB louder Cast tends to be louder above 40hz Cast uses an average of 1.7% MORE power above 40hz to be .02 dB quieter It's literally MORE BANG for your BUCK



**20hz and below were outliers and removed from the data set.

Id rather have the basket that works best for the new hds3.1. Unless theres some other reason for wanting the previous one.... im not sure why anyone would care.

Imo the old basket looked beast I am not a fan of the new basket I had plans of showcasing the older basket in a 4th order with lights and plexi but now I kids wanna sell it and go back to sundown

3.1 looks like a steel stamped basket.."works better for us" means it's cheaper for the company...

James, We understand the basket isn't as pretty as the former but it is just as hefty and the changes make this woofer even more compatible for your 4th order install. Paul T, the stamped basket is very thick and definitely did not change the cost of the woofer. It was the only one we could get to fit with the upgraded motor.

Cast baskets tend to break looks thin I have seen American bass and other subs have cracking problems I hope this does not happen with these but I'm up to give them a try
