8" RF Punch HX2 vs. 8" Kicker Solobaric L5
My next project will probably be dealing with a pair of 8" subs. I wanna see what I can get them to sound like. I have a few questions concerning this, one is, which of these two subs do you think could get louder? I'm leaning towards the L5's, just due to cone area. The L5's would have 128sq.in. of cone area, compared to the HX2's 100.48sq.in. Anyways, another question, I'm obviously going with a ported box. I'm wondering, what do you guys think I should tune it at? I know if it was going for all SPL I would want it tuned fairly high, but I actually think that I want it tuned very low. I'd like it to get very deep and fool people, maybe have them think I have a 12" or even 15". A regular round 12" has about 110sq.in. of cone area, so I could get a pair of L5's and have it sound like a 12 or something. What do you guys think? I'm open to suggestions, probably won't start this project for a couple weeks.
