Ciare NDC8-3, about $200, with 50W is 115.5dB at 37hz with 20V input (50W/8Ω). Rated for 300W RMS, it should play loud enough.

Rises about 3dB from 40hz~100hz to allow for 'room gain', -3dB around 34hz with respect to 40hz.

"Can I get this sub in the u.s. I haven't heard of that name brand ? "

A quick Google comes up with:

Ciare NDC8-3 - Ciare NDC8-3 is a 600 watt 8 inch lightweight neodymium speaker for all bass and mid-bass speaker systems- Ciare Speakers - Ciare NDC8-3 8 inch lighweight neodymium speaker for bass guitar, PA speaker systems, etc. Ciare NDC8-3 8 inch

"looks promising. as long as its in 1.0Pi... "

Most people have a floor and a wall to use it by. They may not have a suitable corner though, so I didn't use 0.5Pi.

Here's a ppsl, just for djk that would accomplish your stated goals... and at $59 each, would be cheap, and have budget left over for a bash500 to power it...

You won't get 1pi loading in the boat -- 2pi only. You replacing your dual kicker TH? or are you helping a friend out -- those sound like different dimensions than I remember for your dual kicker. what wattage/ohm you targeting?
