    Here is a good review of them http://momentum.soundillusions.net/march03/
    It says that ported really opens them up to the world

    Re: box for re 8s

    You can put the RE8's in one ported box. Tuned to 30-35 with .5cubes each. For power I recommend 100-130watts

    I have mine (4) in a single chamber box (2.0cubes) tuned to 32Hz and let me tell you, the bass is overwelming!
