Also if I end up with the 1k ill probably tune for 0db, or -2. So it will be rare (if not never) that it puts a full 1200 on it
I love my two v2's Got them on a APSM-1500 for now and they will take 1k each daily for a long time.
right now i have 2 12" kicker comps running on an 800 watt amp i know its not the loudest system in town thats for sure but i was looking to get two sa 8s, should i keep my system or get the sa 8s. im also hoping to get a bigger amp shortly.
I am thinking of one of these.. my problem..I got a Silverado crew cab so space and a good box is an issue. How would these sound in a sealed box with about 500 goin to them..I am running a shallow MBquart sub in a prefab with about 200 rms to it. Sounds good but... I am very curious to know how deep theses can get.. any ideas>?
Not sure what you mean by deep, are you refering to how low these will play?
if so extremely low. Absolutely blown away like I said before 1 sa-8 on just 500 measly watts in the trunk of a car was peaking at 30hz at 130.1db. my previous set up 2 mtx thunder 8000 on 500 watts would barely play 30hz the sa-8 can dig into the lows just as well as any larger sub, it just doesnt have the abbility to do it as loudly do to its lack of cone area. But in a space limited instal there isnt anything better on the market now that I can possibly think of.
I loooked for those came up empty. I looked on Sundown's webpage and saw that they have sealed specs for the 8's. I called a local shop that is a authorized dealer and they said you can run them sealed. I rather go seal only because I drink too much to even think about trying to build a ported box. Its a toss up between the 10 Dayton HO or a SA-8. I like low deep bass.Hits hard at high volumes and still gets the lows. Ive seen some sick Youtube posts with some flexin off 1 SA in a ported box, but like I said I need to be mindful of the limited space under the back seat. The new body style has less room than last body style,,,so I just dont know....Crack open another beer...
http://www.caraudio.com/forums/sundo...rototypes.html. Sure like the car audio shop said you can physically put the sub into a sealed box, but that would be a complete waste. The woofer wasnt designed for a sealed box and you would loose tons of output. After buying these on pre order and messaging jacob(owner of sundown audio) for box suggestions he strongly discouraged putting it in a sealed box. So if you cant fit a ported box for it or dont have the ability to design once I strongly suggest you go sealed 10, The Dayton HO is a very good choice
Yeah I figured that. I really like to see what these are about tho. I might just try and get some plans for a ported box and start cutting.. Thanks for your help.. will let you know how it goes!
Hopefully somebody will still be around in this thread as I'm seriously considering getting 2 of these for my car. Currently I have a single JL 10W7 in the JL high output box and it still slams pretty good but I've never really liked the way it sounded with a lot of rock and metal music. On fast metal a lot of the quick bass hits just get muddled together and sound like **** or else don't really come out very loud at all. But with rap or dubstep or anything else with 50hz and lower it just kills it. I'm just wondering if I get 2 of these 8's and hook them up to my Audison LrX 5.1K will it be just as loud or louder than my W7 (3 years old). And will I notice a big difference in the response time and SQ?
Also was wondering what would be the best kind of ported box to build that would allow it to get really loud but still have very good sound quality? Small slot port? Or maybe a couple of aeroports? I'm interested in aeroports cuz I know they can move a lot of air. But do they retain SQ to?
