    And yet its still quieter than a cvl on 500 watts . Your missing the point bro. Clearly something is still not right. I thought you were passed the nuthugging?

    have you metered it yet?

    often times metered loudness is much different than perceived loudness.

    not trying to be a pain just wondering.

    I havent even put the sub in on the termlab yet. So yes I should do that. but still, theres a LARGE difference and its the opposite way you would think.

    Regardless the sub didnt meet expectations. I started a paypal dispute as SPLaudio has yet to offer me a good solution.

    and this is why the car audio scene is dissolving....

    pp disputes are for when u don't receive a product, don't receive the right product, or receive a damaged product. looks like u got everything u wanted and don't know how to use it, just sayin.

    carry on

    Re: SPL with a single 8" Sub... More sound with less.

    He has yet to offer to build me the sub I had originally wanted. I wanted a sub to handle 1000rms+ and I was expecting a high excursion 8" sub. Instead I got a sub that has less than 1" of excursion and has mechanical noise (the cvl has more excursion than this by quite a bit). You tell me who got the short end of the stick... I am more than happy to come to a compromise but since one has not been agreed on I opened a paypal dispute as backup as im running out of time and its been almost a month since ive sent money and I have yet to receive a pm from splaudio regarding a solution. And yes I have tons of feedback and yes im a good guy so people who dont know the situation your best bet is to stay out of it. Im trying to be reasonable here.

    PS: the paypal dispute says that the item did not come as expected, which is entirely true in this case. I did not open a dispute saying that I didnt receive the product as I did. However it did not meet the standards it was supposed to be built to.

    Which is charge me for another recone lol. If he built me a 8" sub that met the standards I had given him, id gladly pay him cost minus the new basket. But he instead said hes going to build me the same sub. Im more upset with the fact that I have YET to receive a PM from him. So clearly people can see how he handles business.

    Re: SPL with a single 8" Sub... More sound with less.

    Ill give you 24 hours splaudio to contact me via pm or email (Mikedwentworth@gmail.com). Ill gladly come to a compromise by all means. Otherwise ill ship you the sub back and take my money. You can keep the motor since clearly the soft parts you used would be useless without it and ill eat the cost of the motor :/. I really am trying to be reasonable.

    Re: SPL with a single 8" Sub... More sound with less.

    So out of curiosity, why didn't you just go with a well established sub (not to be a ****) like an SA-8 or DD 1508? While (from what some testers have told me) the SA-8 may not handle more than 600-700wrms out of the box without a recone, both of those subs are known to perform at tremendous levels, and don't really cost more than $200 each (assuming you get a recone on the SA-8 with upgraded parts for about $60-70).

    Also would like to say, interesting thread, I like to see people screwin' around with 8s. Also, thread would be much better with pix

    Everyone knows what they will do so whats the point of testing a sub that there are endless vids of already... Everyone is getting a little sick of Sundown these days honestly... Much better can be made anyway

    Re: SPL with a single 8" Sub... More sound with less.

    a sa8 will be louder than the sub i built no question. the sa8 has a stronger motor, the one i built will handle more thermal. i didnt sell,design or recomend the motor used. just asked to make it into a 800rms 8" sub. i have had customers want there audiobahn subs rebuilt i do it.
    if someone wants my recomendations i will give them.

    there is still no reason this sub cant knock out a 140dbs...

    Where is the world are you getting 800rms? I said 100rms and 1800 on burps. No where did I ever say 800rms. Would you pm me already? Im giving you options and you still havent attempted to make things right...
