Sounds like a great plan though, doesn't it?

What kind of mounting depth are we looking at with these?

Heck yes, Miata build time?

140mm if I remember correctly.

They will certainly hang with the Rl-i, but a little different sound.

Can these little guys actually hit, or move air if you will, like say a 12". I haven't heard any of these new 8"s? Does the huge motor force actually make up for the lack of cone area, or are these just for filling in the lower end of the music signal? Reminds me of the guys in Europe who did 150's, on a butt load of 6x9's!  But could these do decent numbers without having 10 of them? That mostly my question as I have no exsperience with 8" or 10" inch subs.

I'm mainly a Sound Quality competitor, but I have made my rounds in the sound pressure lanes !!! 

I've learned that motor structure is more important (to handle brute amplifier power) than cone area to produce awesome numbers on a meter. Well, along with expert enclosure build and vehicle modification ... 

So with that being said, these drivers should do really well in the SPL lanes ...

I think there should be a vote in the SSA supporter section maybe... just for us long time members/Team members/people who donate

 

 

I'm with him on this....But the 8con is catchy!

To be fair, a lot of my post are bullshit while arguing with Sean, but please let's all just move forward and let things go.

Really, I honestly didn't think these monster 8's could do much, but cool to know they can. I bet it's fun to see the look on someone's face when they think you got 12's or 15's and you tell them 8's. I always thought it took multiples of these to get loud, like 4-6 8's to equal a couple of 12's.

      Hello everyone, long time no see. I am selling a pair of Dual 2-ohm (technically D1.7) 12" Sundown X v.2's built by Dave Leib a.k.a "Strongman Designs." 
      Reason I am selling them is because I realized upon testing to see if my digital multi-meter was working correctly that one of the coils is reading higher on the one sub indicating that too much heat had been applied to it recently so rather than risking any further damage to it I am going to assume that I have too much power for these.
      Having said this in all honesty, let me make it perfectly clear here that both subs are still in perfect working order as we speak, even the one that is reading differently. Had I not thrown my multi-meter on it to test it in order to see if it was working properly (the multi-meter itself) I would have never known there was any difference or discrepancy between the two.  
      However, because one of them is reading off now and I do not know what is to be expected out of it's performance long-term I will be letting these go for $500+ shipping (that includes both).
      Any further questions or concerns please feel free to text me at 440-915-2309
      Phil

      Hello all and thank you in advance for your help. This will be my first build and I'd like to build a new subwoofer for my home audio system. I'm flexible, but would like somewhere around 800-1000W to drive a 12" sub in a ported box, and to do this I plan to spend somewhere around $500 or so. I don't have a great idea of what a realistic budget is, so I'm flexible, just would like to keep costs down.
      I need some help figuring out where to start. Could someone please point me in the direction of some good resources regarding amplifier selection specifically?
      Thank you all.
       
      Quick edit: I'm using an optical connection from my computer to a Yamaha RX-V677 receiver. If anyone has any resources regarding the best connection between the receiver and amplifier, that would also be great.
