    2 8"s or 1 12" SQ setup

    Im looking for suggestions on what pair of 8"s or a single 12" would be a solid SQ performer in the 250$ range. Whatever the rms requirements ill buy an amp accordingly.

    If I go two 8"s I can port them or a single 12 sealed.

    Any suggestions would be great.

    Any recommendation on which 8"s then? Going used doesn't bother me.

    Re: 2 8"s or 1 12" SQ setup

    the concern with multiple subs is coherent coupling of the wavefronts.
    a single sub simplifies everything.

    the concern with vented enclosures is coherent coupling of the woofer output and the port output.
    a sealed enclosure simplifies everything.

    a pair of 8's vented is several orders of magnitude more complicated to sound as good as a single sealed 12.

    both can do the job. one is much easier to implement successfully.



    have you been helped by me? i'd love to know. shoot me a PM.
