The HC Series signals a return to traditional ferrite motors. The HC Series is the latest in the progression of Fi subwoofers geared towards thundering daily drivers. Utilizing a favorite 3 stack ferrite magnet design using US steel cut on our water jet and finish machined on our CNCs, there is plenty of motor force in the FEA derived design for both daily and SPL use. Utilizing a solid pole and staged aluminum cooling helps keeps thermal temperatures under control. A classic 3 stack of ferrite magnets provide the Gauss while 4 Fi designed 10″ heavy progressive spiders keep things under mechanical control. Utilizing a special 144 tinsel count leadwire that is double sewn to the spider pack, there are no losses in power transfer to the coil (available in either standard stitched with terminals or the hybrid stitched with bolted termination.

The HC brings back an updated favorite with the performance you have come to expect from our classic ferrite designs.

General Information

All orders are custom made to your selected options.  Each order is machined from raw steel and hand made after it is ordered.  This normally takes 10-15 business days, but due to unforseen issues it can take longer. We will note much of this directly on the individual product pages and try to update this weekly.  There are a couple of times a year that we simply can not keep up with sales and these “normal” time lines will not be in effect.  These times normally include Black FiDay and tax season.  During these times we will run batch orders per series and not individual orders.  This increases our overall efficiency, but can put your order into a later build date.  Fi will maintain reasonable communication should an item take longer than our normal 15 business days to make during our normal build seasons.  Often we will post through Facebook and Instagram our batch sequences to give all customers a better time line.  We also note for each item the current lead times (which can be longer than our normal 10-15 business days. Should an item take longer than normal, all refund policies still are in effect.
