Review of Subwoofer or Speaker:
Just received the Sundown audio sa-8 yesterday and had all today to listen to it here are some pics
I put it next to a kicker Comp 12 just for a reference
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.
