    8" Sub .5-.75cu^ Recomnedations.

    No longer going to be running a big system in my car.
    Going for space saving/weight saving.

    Box would be ported and in between .5 and .75 cu ft.

    Staying with a 8" sub, and a cap of around $150, what would you recommend?

    Figure around 350-400wrms. Maybe more for a beefier 8.

    find a used sa-8 v.2, or even a new one is only a little more than what your wanting to spend. ive ran single v.2's in a couple cars already with very good results, and my pair was doing a 142 at 30hz.

    I was looking into them, but would .75 be optimal for it or still a bit small?

    Also would be tuned between 30 and 33 hz.

    Yeah it'll work. They recommend 0.5-0.75 cu. ft tuned to 35 hz.

    sa8, put it in 1 cu ft net, with a decent amount of port and a lower tuning.

    personally i dont really like the way the sa-8's sound in a 1 cube box, the most i will go with one is .75, i had a pair in 1.5 with 60in^2 of port, and they just loved it...
