    Gamehawk55, get rid of that "high output box" and get a real box built and that sub will shine.

    ^^^This. W7's are good woofers. They are just expensive new, which I think is why most people shy away from them. But you put that in a good box, it should sound good.

    Re: Sundown Audio sa-8 v.2 Review

    So what kind of box would you guys suggest? Because I was under the impression that the official HO box for the W7 was supposed to be one of the best boxes you could put them in. Also not to be pushy or anything but I still would like to know if 2 sa8v2 subs would be better overall vs my W7 or if my money is better spent getting a new box built for the W7 which would be pricey cuz I cant build it myself and would probably cost more than a box for sa8 subs. For 2 sa8 v2 and a box id probably be looking at $500-600. Any and all help is much appreciated because ive been goin nuts for months wondering what I should do haha.

    If it were me, I would get a box built for 10W7. You already have it and they are really good. For a factory spec/prefab box, the ho boxes are **** good, but you certainly can get a design and do better.

    Re: Sundown Audio sa-8 v.2 Review

    Do you have any suggestions on where to find a good design for a new box? My trunk space is somewhat limited. I BARELY got that HO box in there cuz the mouth of the trunk is a little tight. Once it's in there there's plenty more room haha. But yeah any suggestions or sites I can check would be great thanks

    Sundown Audio sa 8 v 2 Review

    Anyone up for After Sundown MCing on the forum? Obviously Frank preferred above most anyone, but based on ignoring the question in the thread, I assume he is too busy or doesnt want to.

    So, person, I summon you.

    These things slam in small cars like 2 seat coupes and pick up trucks. 2k rms to 2 woofers and you can get low 150's spl. People that have bigger cars can burb them at 1.7k rms. They a nasty little subs.

    I had 2 12in Kicker CompVRs d4 wire down to 1ohm on a Memphis 1100watt RMS. It couldn't handle the full 1100watt so I replace with a single SA8v2 d2 and all i gotta say is ****!!! Very happy i made the switch.
