Is the Super 8 REALLY a subwoofer???
 
I was looking for a couple small sub drivers and a friend of mine pointed me to the super 8. If nother else it is a wicked looking driver, but with a Fs of 47hz, is it really a sub driver? I have .8 cu ft boxes. How can I make that driver work as a sub in those boxes as a sub?

I have sold hundreds of these and have been used as subs.
Mostly in cars, but also for music and gaming.

There is a lot of imformation either on my website by clicking on the picture
and on you tube (type in Apex Jr and there are at least 4 video's of customers using these in there cars)

I'm sure their are a lot of people on this forum that can chime in too.

I should mention that I started out with about 800 of these and down to
about 20 left in stock.

The MCM 55-2421 and the Super 8 are a couple of popular 8" subs. The MCM is a bit more work, because it really needs a ported box, bandpass, or horn to get the most output. (It's very inefficient, but it has a low FS of 31hz, which means it can get low with a bit of help.)

See here how I EQ'd a Super8 to flat down to the 20's (plenty boost, but just to illustrate a (the) point...): Tried RS52 mid as a tweeter

Shaun,

That looks pretty good, but as an old "Bass Lister" I expected no less.
:D
