2 ct sounds meso 8s vs 4 skar ma 8s

Recommended Posts

Having a hard time deciding on subs for my 2015 extended cab Chevy wanting the loudest I can get for my budget which is around 500 bucks for the subwoofers going to run 1500-2000 watts stuck between 4 skar ma8s and 2 meso 8s also open to alternatives

Neither 

 Soundqubed hds3 or American bass vfl 8 or Sundown sa8,x8 or ssa fl8

everyone on here hates skar and ct sounds because of poor business practices 


My wife doesn’t know about my car audio addiction...shhhh

too many freq at once, burn the coil, we all know, over 40-50hz, its all coilburning material.

I really like the sa and the x but a little out of my price range I don’t have much space it’s going under the seat in a extended cab even with the 8s I’ll have to lift the seat 2 inches

The 4 8s will be louder the Tropo 8s claim higher RMS for less price but didn't check the actual specs 

I love CT and Skar I think it's great thing when we have these smaller companies bringing budget products to the world.

I run 2 Tropo 18s on a skar RP2k @ half ohm. The subs take it no problem but it hasn't been very long so that with a grain of salt.

 

Skar has some cool 6.5s $59.99 each 2 inch coil.

 

If you can spend $500 just get two SA-8s.

The trick is going to be airspace to go ported... myself, I'm planning on 2 F8L's on a 2k in 1.5 cubes ported tuned to 33hz. But mine is a crew cab. 18 crew cab sierra. But even with a 2" lift, I dont think I can fit 4 8s with proper airspace and port area. I can fit 3 8's though.

Excellent choice on the SSA F8L's.
