Which enclosure would work better for 1 of these off 2-300rms? I know its the the full power it can handle but thats what the Xtant I'm installing does.

tline gives a smoother flat response

So with that amount of power, yeh or neh? Going in the GTO in the sig.

Is that power per or total?

I would lean towards ported.

Its rated at 200rms x 1 @2ohm, but is underrated by a good amount.

Wouldnt exactly say the t-line will be better. Usually gives a smother impedance curve I believe.
The SA-8 should be pretty fit for a tline if youd like. If youre looking for clean low end extension id say its worth a shot. Not many people design them though. Ive been learning more about them and doing more research though Im often busy and hardly on here anymore.

I'd go t-line since you're working with minimal power, and just to do something different.

i like how tlines sound. I found that the only limitation was the woffers power rating vs output. but overall, it was a very sweet smooth sounding box. If I had room, I would have had two subs. but I was only able to use one. might put it back in later when I am over this spl fever...

Did you use a loading chamber or not?

A loading chamber kind of takes away the point of a t-line imo.

But you can make it work well if you taper it down towards the start of the line instead of just doing a square angled chamber.

Tried it in a tline tuned to 35hz and it sounded awesome. But i currently have it in .7cu/ft @37hz due to space issues :(

I had a SA-8 in a T-line in my crx over the winter. It had great tonality and blended with the fronts well, low end extension was impressive for being an 8. Only thing I didn't like was how much I had to stress the suspension to get the output. I put it through the wringer and eventually tore a lead being careless with some dubstep @ 400rms. If I did it over again I'd only do it with a subsonic filter and/or lower power.

With low power you'll probably like it. But if you're pushing the RMS or more to these subs you'll want a box with better cone control.

Pics of what you mean? I'm not following where you are talking about.
