Two 10's or four 8's?

Do you want something to listen to? or just be the one hit wonder? If you want listen to any kind of music, 4 8' woofers have more cone area, however,the the two 10" might give you the low end, all of this depends on the enclosure,,,,Keep that in mind and post some pics of your car or truck. All the best here, Mavric

I have two DD 1508's and they have tons of output in the right box. you just need to feed them at least 600wrms each.

if you've got the money and the room, I'd say a couple of 12"s for low end, and an 8" or two for midbass punch. but... that'd likely mean another amp

those 1508's are no joke, what kind of vehichle? I can send a link for vented enclosure. I wish i had those drivers.

holy smokes, I just read the reviews on that amp, its one ohm stable, posted at about 1500rms depending on voltage. Go big! that amp is a beast. With kind of power, I have used similar amps on two 15's and popped 150's on term lab and still kept itas an everyday driving car. But please, what kind of vehichle?

I'm using mine in a Toyota Rav4 in a 1.4cuft common chamber 34Hz ported box. powered by a Kicker ZX1000.1. loads of low end output from two 8's. already broke the clips for the rear plastic bumper trimming. :warped:

well i want to be able to listen to not a one hit wonder its my daily driver and it is a 2000 chevy silverado extra cab and im building a custom fiberglass box for whatever i decide. what is the pricing like on the 1508's? and ill post some pics of the space i have to work with tonight.

I think it's around US$250 SRP over here. might be a little cheaper over there as there's no shipping, tax, etc.
