    DD 1508, or the L7 are going to be loud off that power, basically depends on what your looking for on output...SPL, SQ, or a mix (SQL)

    The 8" L7 is supposed to be a tough little sub.

    I think either the L7 or the DD will work in your case it will be install dependant, I guess go with the 1 you can get for a better deal. The Aq SD 2-8 would work as well very well actually.

    I did a 151.6 30 sec average in USACi Street Beat 1 on 4 DD 1508's a couple of weeks ago...I was told the meter started off at a 152.6 on my first run when something messed up with my system...the 2nd run I started at a lower volume 150.6 then rolled it up to the 151.6.....remember that is a 30sec average not a peak hold...there are ups and downs in the music...As far as ground pounding BASS you can get them out of DD 1508's...




    Current 2010 Louisiana USACi State Records :

    Trunk 0-1000.................. 151.3
    StreetBeat 2................... 145.6
    Stock 1801-up.................153.8
    SuperStock 1801-up..........154.2
    Top three in 11 out of 26 power classes and Louisiana USACi Points Leader at 465

    Can I see some pictures of your 8 setup Louisiana CRX? I'm looking into something different and the DD 8's always seem to grab my attention.
