    Google express is just a front end for a whole bunch of retailers. They are trying to establish (I think) so have tons of coupons right now.

    Here are a few more options for you (I'm just getting back into this, so I'd let other members speak to the quality of these but they all look decent to me at your price point):

    Re: 8" sub recommendations

    I'm going to give it a few days and see if the NVX's come back in stock. I could get 4 subs and shipped free for $129. That's a steal. I'd even have some extra headroom if I get an amp with a more powerful sub channel. They're 250rms and the amp I'm getting would only give them 150rms each.

    Yeah. For the $$ I'd get the Massive subs. $217 shipped and they'll outplay those NVX's.

    Re: 8" sub recommendations

    I'm more so concerned with SQ over SPL. They're going in a supercrew pickup so it'll be plenty loud either way. I don't have enough power for 4 anyway. I'm only pushing 600rms through the sub channel.

    Re: 8" sub recommendations

    Cut any peaks in the sub bass. Match the phase to the mid range. Don’t have the sub bass more then a few DB higher then the mid range.
    You have SQ in the sub region.

    Re: 8" sub recommendations

    This will be my first go at a DSP and an active front stage, so I'm sure there will be a learning curve. But I'm always down for a challenge.

    Re: 8" sub recommendations

    Those are above the budget and I don’t think I’ll have enough mounting depth to let it vent properly.

    Re: 8" sub recommendations

    I have the nvx. They’re decent for what they are. But they struggle on lower notes. You can hear mechanical noise a lot more than normal anything I play below box tunning. But they’re also tuned at 36.

    Re: 8" sub recommendations

    How many are you running? I love the low notes so I'd love to find something that has a little authority down low. That's why I was going with 4 of them even though they're going to be sealed.

    Re: 8" sub recommendations

    If you want sub bass and sealed the box needs as much airspace as possible.
    Not recommended specs. It will handle less power but you will lower F3.

    Re: 8" sub recommendations

    One thing I just noticed from the manual for the NVX is that 250rms is recommended for ported and 400rms is recommended for sealed. If that's the case, I'm not going to be pushing enough power for 4 sealed. I will only have 600rms total on tap.

    Re: 8" sub recommendations

    It will be fine. 200 watt difference don’t matter.
    And the bigger the box the less power is needed.
