    Icon32 Nightshade 15" or 3 Sa-8's???

    I was wondering what you guys would go with? If I go with the NS It will have about 3cf after port and sub displacement. If I go with the 3 Sa-8's each sub will have about .9cf after subs and port displacement. Amp being used is a aq2200d. Will be a daily setup and will be used in the trunk of a 04 Chevy Cavi looking for the most "spl" but will not be chasing numbers box will be tuned around 32hz no matter which setup, I go with...

    Also if I go with the NS box will have to be sub up port can go where ever. If I do the Sa-8's I can planned on doing subs and port back.

    I would think the NS would be the best for output. But then again I have never ran one nor do I know what kind of space they must have. Someone with more expertise will chime in I am sure.

    I would go nightshade all day. That thing will shine in 3-3.25 cubes. I was going to run mine in a 3.1 cube box on 3k
