    1 ported or 2 sealed for an RE 8

    Excelon x869, VolksWagonFactory Monsoon speakers powered by an Alpine MRV F340 amp set to 35 W RMS X 4. I just want it punchy and just "ENOUGH" to fill-in.

    2 sealed will do you well for what you want.

    Re: 1 ported or 2 sealed for an RE 8

    Okay going 2 sealed. Now.. should I wire them to 1 ohm? I was thinking Hifonics BX500D (500 X 1 at 1ohm). What other wiring options do I have? I just want them as clean as possible. Will 250 X 2 RMS @ 4 ohm work?

    Thats way to much power.
    250W per woofer is over powering them.

    Yes, but you want to buy a DMM if you dont have one and do the gain setting tutorial.
    Either on this site or JL's, there the same
    That way you dont clip them or over excurt them
