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

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.

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