Ok so my friend has two RE REX 8's laying around and he wants to make a box to get them loud. We have built ported boxes, but I'm just wondering if there's any other type/style of box that would get these two 8's as loud as possible. Our main goal is maximum SPL so SQ doesn't matter. We have considered making a 6th order bandpass or t-line boxes, but we don't have much experience with those types to know if they will get the job done. So... what box in your opinion will get these 8's as loud as they can get?

Did you see that horn with pair of 10's in Sanford at the first show of the year there? It was VERY impressive for the power and cone area. A true horn can give fantastic gains.

pshh... I didnt go to the show there lol... but I have seen some folded horns used in vehicle applications. and yes I have heard that they can be very impressive.

I would try a .7^3cu ft enclosure tuned to 50hz. Throw about 500 watts at them for short burst

Yep that was Joshua Rideout's setup. He had a pair of TC 10's iirc. Pulled a high 130 at 20hz and had enough force to move the entire box back and forth (keep in mind that box probably weighed close to 150-200lbs and was also strapped down)

Last I talked to him he was gonna go all out with concrete but I don't know if he's gonna go through with it or not, after all that means buying another vehicle...
