    Best 8 inch & 10 inch Subwoofers?

    Some of the best SQ and bang for your buck subs?

    Rockford fosgate power hx2s and kicker L7s.
    yes but not cheap.

    I need help...I reset my first message.
    Can you give me a list of titles to stay away from...
    ie. Sony....etc.
    and a list to always look at.

    SPL-Sound Pressure Level-(Loudness)

    And as for 8 and 10 inch subs, the only way I would have either of them is if I absolutely had no room for 12's. Just my opinion

    Why is that? What 's the attraction to 12's everyone seems to have?

    I wanted 8's or 10's because I listen to alot music with fast-super fast beats.
    Besides my stereo can already handle the deep stuff.
    All I want is my beats to sound full. My stereo will not hits fast beats in songs like
    "Where's your head at"- Basement Jaxx and "Aint never learned"-Moby
    Two of my most fav songs and my stereo can't handle them.

    I'm to the point of buying the cheapest sub+amp out there...only to know I'll be disappointed. I'm not doing it for compitition..I just want to hear and feel the power
    over the engine. I'm a freeway driver.

    12's are just the way to go for everyday listening, and certain 12's are great for comps.if you have the room for a twelve or two then why not?

    When do you plan on buying the sub ?

    Also, PunchZ = horrible
    I plan on buying a sub as soon a possible but that may not be till next month or March.

    JL Audio 8W7 - Expected to be around $400
    Super eights?? hummm... I'll check'em out.
    I just might wait, and just get an amp. So should they be out in March or April?

    There are non-official specs in the review link I provided above
    that's right I saw those...
    300 watts, right? forgive me for my lack of knowledge.

    Re: Best 8 inch & 10 inch Subwoofers?

    All right about a year later, I'm back and I'm ready to buy my setup.
    How did these super 8's fair?
    I still want an 8'' or 10'' sub, though.
