currently Im running a single 15inch Sub in a massive ported enclosure (8 cubes Gross). And its simply to big for my apartment. Im thinking about either getting 2 or 3 8"s. would it be better to go with something like 3 of these...

or 2 of these

either setup will recieve the total RMS power of the combined drivers. box will be somewhere in the 5cube @ 20-25 Hz.


thanks for all of the help.

Probably the ref. series ones as they have a higher VAS and lower resonant freq... but both could get the job done. $ is a factor you shouldn't overlook ;)

yeah I know...but Im a poor college kid. Im gonna miss my 15 though...it hits the lows crazy. I played a 25Hz tone the other day, and the windows were shaking rather violently.

Too big?

Integrate it into furniture or something. Hide it behind a couch. There are ways ;)

Why do you want a box that big??? Usually for HT even for a 15 (depends on the 15) I would go with a smaller box sealed... Or a small box ported and tuned ultra low...
