View Full Version : SA8 v2 box question...

Please forgive the uninformed newb questions lol...

Anyways I WAS looking at getting a single gcon 12" but noticed their site recommends 2.5-3.0ft^3. I really dont want to be that big so I went down to the gcon 10" which is recommended at 1.75-2.0ft^3. Then I started looking at the sa8's and the sa site recommends .5-.75ft^3. Now if I put 2 together to me that means I need 1.0-1.5ft^3 which is smaller then either of the 2 previous. Am I doing this right? Hell 3 means 1.5-2.25ft^3 right? These are net which I was told means minus the subs and anything else in the box right?

For the most part your right. It would be around there anyway. Also, yes that is net volume.

my best experience with the V.2's has been .75 per, with a lot of port area, my daily setup for a while was 2 D2's wired at .5 on my saz 1500, enclosure was 1.5net with 60 square inches of port tuned to 37, with the way it reacted in my car it would respond down to 18hz, and did a 140.8 at 28hz on the 40 amp fuse meca limits me to,

they were flat nasty. but that enclosure is very hard on those woofers. but they will last a life time in it as long as you dont try to abuse them the way i did...
