    What 8" subs should i get?

    Looking to do 4 8's in my suby.

    im thinking of going 2 boxes on each side of the trunk facing each other, 2 subs per box. maximum box size of ~1.5 cubes per pair.

    was thinking of running 4 sa-8's but really dont want to add 80lbs + 25lbs of box to my trunk.

    some suggestions? the lighter the sub the better. power doesnt matter cause i dont have an amp yet and i will get the amp based on what subs.

    and atleast 300-400wrms per sub.

    Honestly, you're only options are going to be heavy 8s in that case. Why not go with 2 10s instead? Save money, space, and weight.

    I was just trying to show them to you, man. Besides, you can buy directly from SoundSplinter's official site. It's down at the moment, though. The prices on soundsplinter.com are a little less than SSA's too.
