    The 8's should be louder if done right. I'd do the SA 12s if you can send them more than 1k

    You'll definitely notice better SQ. I have a few friends who are extremely happy with two SA-8s in a properly built ported box. Take the extra dough you'll save by going with the 8s and have someone here build you a good enclosure. @double 07 ; is doing a bomb sale between now and Xmas

    Yeah it would be nice to have 2 12 but then I have to get different amp and it would be tight on space so far I think 2 8's better than 1 12 is. That what you guys think I only have about 2 1/2 cf of space ill get the measurements later

    They "could" be but "should" be is an iffy statement...

    Re: To kicker, 12's versus two Sa 8 v2's

    So with my 1000 amp and my $300 or so is that the best choice to get two 8's or would it be better to get one 12 or even another brand thanks

    Re: To kicker, 12's versus two Sa 8 v2's

    it really depends on how much space you want to give up. i changed from one 12 to the two 8's to regain a little space. the box config is one of the most significant points in the whole set-up. so...how much space? it also depends on what you type of output you want. and always remeber, the most important thing is how it sounds to YOU... you're the one who has to invest and then listen to it....lol.
