Default Silver Flute 8" woofer

This would be my first post with diyAudio forums. and im turning here in a last attempt to find out the answer. A customer called me today and asked me what the cheapest 8" sub would be to put in his truck. So i said 2 of the Silver Flute 8" 4 ohm subs would be perfect and i todl him the price of 39.99 each.
Now i have no doubt that theese are nice woofers, but my question to you guys is how good would the two of them hold up against one 10" pioneer.


which can be found here:

A fast response would be appreciated. thanks alot.

Default my line arrays

Oh yeah for sure. I built the most economic speakers ever. and i challenge anyone to second best me.
The line arrays have in each side:

16 4" full range pioneer drivers - 49 cents at parts express.
2 1 1/8 dayton silk dome tweeters.

the overall theoretical effeciency is 97 db. and the only speakers i've heard that have bettered theese were a 5000$ a pair B&W speaker.. but im sure a good filter and some better tweeters would fix that.

They peak real bad at around 8 khz. so a filter is almost nesesary. but theese things scream and after wood and crossovers it only cost me 100$ a pair.

thanks for your interest.!

I was thinking of building a box like this;
Scroll all the way down to Three Chamber Single Reflex Bandpass Enclosure with 2 - 8" Dayton Classic Woofers;
http://www.the12volt.com/caraudio/boxes4.asp
http://www.partsexpress.com/pe/showd...Number=295-310

Instead of Bandpass they were going to be 2 closed boxes with the front wide open instead of just a port.
2 - 8" Silver Flutes would also be good. I don't have the info on hand but I think the Silver Flutes even model well with a small ported box.
