    This is very detailed, but its loosely mis-guided due to the fact that you did not apply what the main subject was.

    In this report size does not matter for sound quality.

    As for SPL a single 8 would need a very large enclosure while a single 21 might only need 1-2 cuft to produce the same decibel of spl or more.

    Then again cone area wins for SPL so larger+lower quantity is the truth.

    Very good article tho!

    Re: Size doesnt matter - Subwoofer size that is...

    This is a difficult concept to truly grab and accept but because of my experience in audio in other arenas I have to agree.
    But
    Finding quality 8" drivers that can handle the power and abuse that we tend to subject these drivers to in car audio, has been nearly non existent. This really has changed recently. TC sounds epic 8" and American Bass (examples) have impressed many with there sound quality and thunder but still not quite what we like. Look at Sundown X8 and Digital Designs SW2508 (examples) and wow, now we are actually seeing progress. These 2 examples can easily prove what you are saying.

    Thanks for the article bro man, it was a good read.

    I totally understand what you are saying. This article was geared toward more daily systems. People think they need 2 12s even 2 10s when all they need is 1 nice woofer in a box built to spec.

    Thank you for your input!

    I agree, the beefy 8s are on the rise for sure!

    Thank you for your input as well!
