I think I am going to take advantage of Skar's "trade" program and I am trying to decide what to get. I've never messed with any 8" subs before, figured I would start a little fun project. As well, this will be my first foray into Skar audio.

What are the main differences between the MA 8 and the VVX 8?

How do I know/figure out, which one to choose?

More $$$ doesn't always mean better IMO.

isnt the ma8 and spl sub

Yeah. The MA8 is supposed to be SPL orientated. What does this mean in terms of real world performance?

I was hoping that someone could tell me exactly what the differences are between the two subs. I've read Skar's site but both drivers seem pretty close to me. I know there has to be some difference. Skar wouldn't create 2 different lines of subs that do the same thing.

Is it really a VS thread if the subs are the same brand? And what kind of power are you planning on putting the 8's?

It would be 1 driver and I plan on putting ~500 watts to it.

Well since they are both rated at 400wrms I would go with the MA 8 because it looks cool and should have a little more boom to it

The MA8 is a good looking woofer.

I am a bit concerned since Skar recommends a ported box of about .75cf for the MA8. Their directions said something about not going much larger. I was hoping to do something crazy like 2-2.5cf but I don't want to ruin a perfectly good woofer.
