    Looking at these 8 inch subs

    I need some 8 inch subs for this box:

    http://www.subthump.com/gmcrewLT.htm


    These are the ones I'm debating between:

    JL Audio 8W3v2-D4

    http://mobile.jlaudio.com/products_...hp?series_id=19

    The Rockford Fosgate P38D4

    http://www.rockfordfosgate.com/prod...19&locale=en_US

    Or would I be better off with a shallow depth 10"


    Thoughts ?? or Opinion??

    Thanks

    that box says 5 and 5/8" and SI BM 10s are 5 1/2" depth, so you have an 1/8 to spare

    Re: Looking at these 8 inch subs

    Even the depth of the box is 5.5 don't you want to have some space for the VC vent? I was under the impression that an inch or two for "breathing" room would be a good idea.

    I just picked up several 9kv.2 subs for my crew but since I have not yet heard them, I cannot endorse. Yet...



    04 Forester XT

    JVC KD-AVX1, RF T-6004, PG Titanium Elite 6" comps, CDT EF-80 Subs.

    I have two Ascendant Audio Assassin 8"s, everything finally came today. Now, I just have to finish running the cable (waiting on dad) and build my box(es). Woo, can't wait!

    I will buy a Stereo INtegrity sub over an eD sub everyday. SI does not make 8" subs, if you want to stay with an 8 the SoundSplinter Rl-i 8 is my favorite,

    but another 10 worth a look is the Fi SSD 10-
