    powerbass xl84 8" sub.

    anyone run one? i have only used one powerbass 10" sub before, and was quite impressed with the output. i'm about to buy one online, and looking to see if anyone else has tried it out and how it was. trying to get something better than my diamond d3 8" which gets pretty **** loud for what it is, and being in .33 sealed on 100rms. gonna try out as many as i can, and thought this looks good. was going to go with an sa, or something similar, but just can't seem to catch a break on one. appears to have a tall roll surround, and hopefully should shake things good.
    thanks

    No, i will not "gift" paypal. please do not even make it awkward by asking. if the fees are an issue, I am usually inclined to add them. unless you have discount elsewhere, shipping is through usps flat rate, through usps parcel post, or through the roof..... i am in alaska. thanks

    seems like a decent sub. has a pretty high sensitivity. dont forget about the E8 too. i have one ported on 300 watts and it shakes my single cab trucks side mirrors

    Re: powerbass xl84 8" sub.

    my diamond is already shaking the mirrors, and vibrating my back, andi'm sure it'll take more juice. i'm looking to get something bigger and better sealed. was going to get the e-8, but they only want to ship ups, or fedex, can't remember, and they charge astronomical prices, so it's not worth it. the pb, i can get free shipping from amazon. i do like to hear that it has good sensitivity. that is always a real good sign.

    @cyn
    did you happen to note the difference, once breaking the thing in? i just got a peak at the specs, and they are way off from what they could be. says "6mm x-max", with a high-roll surround and fairly large, albeit stiff, spider. i'm sure a nice free-air break-in would more than tipple what the sub is right out of the box. i went with it based on my past experience with pb subs...

    interested in finding out more on these subs. 6mm XMAX seems pathetic though.
