    SA E8 V2 Subs

    Hey everyone I'm thinking about experimenting with a bazooka tube and a single 8 inch sundown audio e8 v2 series subwoofer, wired down to 2 ohms. I know this sub is rated at 200 RMS, but for a daily setup will it take 500 watts RMS ok? I'm gonna be running it with an alpine mrp-500 and that amp puts out 500 watts at 2 ohms. I love bazoooka tubes they are awesome for singlecab trucks i tried one with a ****** 8 and that amp turned down and it bumped like 2 10s i had in there haha moved some air too

    one e8 will do just fine with that power... just keep it clean.

    Make sure to set your gain with a DMM/O-scope... don't do it by ear or you'll end up with a funny smell inside your truck

    I am actually ruining two of the e8's in a custom enclosure wired down to 2ohm and its killing those two subs on that same amp. Maybe in 4ohm bridged mode @ 300 if he doesn't push it but 250 in IMHO whoops the hell out these subs.

    Either do that or upgrade to a SA8. It'll eat that 500w easily

    Re: SA E8 V2 Subs

    well then these must be ****** subs because a ****** clarion sub took the 500 watts like a champ. so what amp would be sufficient for these? a cheaper good efficieant amp? like a 350 mono block from alipne?

    5 bucks says you have bass boost on at the amp, if so turn it off and see how muc better and cleaner it will sound

    Re: SA E8 V2 Subs

    Bass boost is turned all the way down, I have not been on this forum long but I have learned some basic things..where's my 5 buck :-) Jk but seriously this amp does a decent job and my enclosure was built by double007 so idk may need to look more into it but from what I have it knocks these out.

    we had pairs on 1k for quite a while (of the v.1's that is) and never had an issue with them.

    No they sound great!! But I couldn't imagine pushing a whole lot more power on them that's all, I just don't see an e8 taking that much more abuse, we are talking about e8's right not sa 8?.. I do have a ported enclosure

    The e8 v3's on pre-order now will do great on that power.
