What's small???
Woofers need the right box size to sound good in truck or car.
Here's a site that'll help you and us get the right size box and shape;
Rectangular or wedge;

An Eminence Beta 8 will get pretty loud, but not very low.... I'd step up to a 10" and get an Executioner 10" from steelsound.

Prototype, made of scraps... including bits from a table project and the top from a console hifi :^)

Got to get a decent XO made for it, the one we tried -- a vintage 70s dB systems was kind of hard to listen thru (and we didn't have the bits necessary to bypass the hi-pass)
