    because 2 12s is a relatively common set up so people have a reference to compare it to

    little update on how it does Spl wise thanks to Kushy Dreams for metering it here are some results
    1 sundown audio sa-8 v.2 dual 4 wired to 2 ohms on a audioque 750.1
    130.2db at 41hz sealed at the dash
    also did a 128db at 51hz and 27hz.

    Yup 27h kinda blew my mind it hit that low like that also from around 25-50 the sub was completely flat rising by 10th's of a db at most through out that entire range

    09which means I Los Angeles escort can't video the singers at my shows, but if a mate of mine records Los Angeles escorts it, we're okay???
    on a side note Los Angeles asian escort does this mean I can record my singers and give them a copy for their own personal use if I make no profit from it.
    Not trying to be Los Angeles asian escorts awkward (though I realise i am) just struggling to get a clear idea what is and what isn't allowed.

    We have it installed in the trunk of a Subaru in a .75 after displacement tuned to 35 hz. on an audioque 750.1 running at 2 ohms. The sub woofer is receiving 500 watts roughly.

    After listening to it on all sorts of musics this thing blew my mind. It had a very large bandwith and wasnt peaky at all. it picked up the drums in rock music nicely while still playing the low lows in rap music.

    my one complaint about the physical design of the sub is that the basket of the subwoofer and the holes in the mounting ring are a little too close. it gives you very little clearance when mounting.


    As far as loudness goes you need to look at what it really is. I haven't listened to a small system (cone size) ever really. when doing the math it has 6 times less cone area than 2 12s and on 500 watts it got surprisingly loud. But if you plan on bumping I would suggest getting multiple of these if your stuck on running them. If your looking for something to fill out the lower end that your mid and highs speakers cant pick up than this thing is perfect for it.
    Good review man putting 1 in my trunk soon on a JL 500.1. cant wait

    I'm hoping to run it for a couple years and I don't want to stress the woofer at all.. I had 2 SA12s before and I beat the hell out of them, they never broke a sweat. (on 2K RMS).. I'm going to a shop to have my doors redone for extra mids and while I was there for a quote I was talking to them about SA8v2s, they swore up and done they would blow with over 500 rms :\ all I could think was ..... but.. no way... Anyway what kind of power do you think a single sa8v2 should be getting?

    That is an issue because I have D2 coils and ~1300rms would be tough for that little guy to handle over 2-3 years :\..

    Yeah that is true... I think ill run the 500.1 for a while, then go bigger eventually. But im sure you will sell that SAZ1k in no time.
