    four 8's or two 10's

    I found me box builder for my truck. the enclosure would be a little over 2.4 cubic ft. net so my options are quad 8's in a custom enclosure or two 10's in a fox acoustics enclosure. if I go with the quad 8's what's a good option to go with under $140 per sub our $220 with the dual 10's? I want something thats sound good but somewhat loud at the same time

    Re: four 8's or two 10's

    10's will be a little louder, but the 8's might sound a little better sq wise. that's just my opinion

    Re: four 8's or two 10's

    Four 8s have more cone area and will most likely get louder than two 10s.

    SQ should be negligible with the edge going to the 8s... more cone area, less excursion for the same SPL = lower distortion.
