    SUNDOWN SD 8's or 10's

    I have a Tundra Crewmax and am going to be installing subs very soon

    I am trying to decide between installing (4) Sundown 8's in a .33 cu ft per sub sealed box

    or (2) SD-10's in a sealed or ported box


    Any suggestions?

    I have not picked up the amp but it is more than likely going to be a rockford power 1000.1 or 1500.1

    thanks

    if you can pick up the 1500.1 the 8s would be a lot of fun. If you go with the 1000.1 I would stick with the pair of 10s

    Re: SUNDOWN SD 8's or 10's

    I'd rather have two ported tens that 4 sealed 8's. The two tens might be at a slight disadvantage to the 8's in over all cone area, but the fact that the back wave of the 8's is going to be trapped in the box makes me think the two ported 10's would be louder. I don't see how you have the space to do two ported 10's and not 4 ported 8's thought...

    Here is the box for the eights - with the 4 eights I can fit in an amp rack - the 10's I will need to mount amps under seat

    Why wont it let me attach a link? WTF

    I'd definitely sacrifice the amp rack to run the 8's ported. Amp racks are nice, but aren't necessary, neither is porting, but I'd rather be loud than look nice.

    Re: SUNDOWN SD 8's or 10's

    the biggest box I can fit is 2 cu ft total, with a 5" max mounting depth. So go with the (4) SD 8's or go two SD 10's

    sundown is recommending to run the sd8's sealed - really should I go ported?

    with that kind of space, I'd say go with two 8's ported. Here's my reasoning, you need AT MINIMUM 1 cube per 10" woofer ported, and you only have 2ft^3 so your port is going to eat at least .4-.6ft^3, so your 10's will be seeing >1ft^3 each which is no good. You could get away with 4 sealed 8s, but you'd be just as loud with 2 ported 8's and you'd see better results on low notes with a ported enclosure.

    Re: SUNDOWN SD 8's or 10's

    Looks like I could get (3) 8's to fit in a ported box as well, its gotta be better than 2

    So -

    2 8's ported

    3 8's ported

    4 8's sealed

    2 10's ported, tech12volts makes a really nice box, prebuilt for the tundra crewmax

    So -

    2 8's ported - YES, you have just enough airspace to properly enclose and port two 8" drivers

    3 8's ported - NO, your port would take up at least 0.5ft^3 and that leaves you with 1.5ft^3 and that's really skimping on airspace for those 8's

    4 8's sealed - YES, you can do this too, it would be twice as expensive for no real gain over 2 ported 8's

    2 10's ported, tech12volts makes a really nice box, prebuilt for the tundra crewmax - MAYBE, I can't see the link because I'm at work, but if the box is under 2.5ft^3 total then it's probably no big enough
    see the red text, I would strongly suggest just going with the two 8's ported

    Re: SUNDOWN SD 8's or 10's

    in a single cab truck two 8's would destroy any frequency that he can throw at it.



    Things to look forward to:
    (2) 10" or 12" imperium audio designs subs
    set of PHD MF 6.5" comps
    Completely seal off and deaden my doors
    aquire a 2k amp
    aquire a 2 channel amp for front stage

    THat's what I've been trying to say this whole thread. Two ported 8's would do wonders in a tiny truck cab.
