why? you don't have crappy, cheapo $30 8inch venoms subwoofers in America..

and I don't believe the DD1008 subs will fit... but they might...

I need to put these back in the car, and give them some real power.. the Sansui amp I used was crap, I got my 2 X 150watt amp back.. YAY!!!

*spins around in circles*

Hi,
how about trying some mouth extenders to double or maybe even quadruple the final mouth area. Then tell us how they sounded before and after extending.

I considered extending the horns, to get bass extention down to 30Hz... but extending them, and increasing the mouth area really only increases the efficiency by like 2 or 3dBs, so its really not worth it...

They seem to do most music pretty well, they are currently in the house, passively crossed over to my bookshelf speakers... there's a whole in the middle of the response, but MEH!!! lol

one day I'll make a horn that will do 20Hz at 140dBs in room... that would be when I have my own house lol

Hi,
you might improve the efficiency by using mouth extending, I cannot confirm this.
What you will gain is extended low bass and even more importantly it will reduce the size of the response ripples in the mid bass and low bass regions very significantly, these WILL result from truncating the horn before reaching the correct mouth area. These ripples in the response can exceed +6db -20db compared to the theoretical flat response.

The potential for nice sounding bass will be limited with a mouth area that your pics seems to indicate.

we dont get venoms over here, although iut never struck me that they might be suitable for horn loading. Also most serious car audio guys would KILL for an actual 3db increase in efficiency. you have the room, extend the mouth area!

Now if youll excuse me i have some cooking to do!

I'd flip them both so the mouths are together for some better coupling.
