I’d only go with the 8 if you could do a 8w7. Iirc, JL’s 8w7 is over-sized, I don’t remember about the w3.
Any somewhat decent sub will do good in the right box. The box type and style is going to make the biggest difference here, IMO. I listen to rap and edm almost exclusively, and I’d totally try to go ported, if you could.
OP I would consider looking at other brands, too, because other subs might be able to fit your budget and what you want better. I can fit 2 of some 8’s in the ported size for 1 of some other 8’s, for example.
I actually have a CNC at my shop (I make drone parts for a living). It’s just that I got intimidated by all the tuning (equipment I don’t have), that steered me towards pre-fab. Well, actually in this case the sealed box happens to be coming with the 10w7.
is there such thing as a small footprint and great SQL for the 10w7? I keep reading the 10w6 is better suited for th
hopefully picking up the 10w7 today
also @shredder2 , we’re you suggesting a legit design for the 8w3 or the 10w7?
