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

    Anyone experimenting with 8" subs these days? I have a single 8" CVL-8 (older version) on my IA 20.1 at 4 ohms. The truck its in is a Regular Cab Ranger. My latest score is a 135.4db on a termlab and im looking for more. Right now im doing sub up, port to the drivers side. 4" PVC port with 3/4" rounds on each end (poor mans aero ) and the box is .8 cubes before sub displacement. My peak is at 46hz. Anyone have any tips or pointers?

    PS: I know 450rms is pretty low power also, but the custom 8" im having built will allow me to run my 20.1 at 1ohm so this should give me a nice increase as well.

    I was doing a 139.8 with a cheap 8 and 300w in an 02 impala. 42hz peak tuned. Close to that played music well but had to watch low notes.

    I did a 150.6 outlaw and a 143ish sealed on the dash with a single sa-8 @ 45 hz.

    Could probably bassrace 139.9 but I'd have to push it pretty hard because my truck sucks sealed up.

    here is the thing, do you think your 8" will handle being beat on for 30 seconds at a time? sure it will burp high, but at what will it play music ya know? if i went up against someone with a single 8" in bassrace i would be thrown back, but then again i have seen weirder
