    ^^^ that will do it, just give it plenty of port area. my pair was flat nasty.

    they will want a little more than that 500 watts to really come to life though.

    IIRC sundown site recommends .5 to .75 cft per for the sa8 so you can do 2 of those if you have the power

    I'd go with the 10 ported over the 12 sealed.
