Skar VD-8's

These are Skars Shallow mount 8's. Ha ya right! They are 3 3/4" in depth.

Looks to have decent terminals and good venting.

I got the pair off Amazon for $63 each.

I got them to run off the new SQ SI-850 amp. The subs are rated for 400 rms/ 600 peak.

I don't think the RF P3 8"SD4 rated at 150/300 will last long off that amp. But the sound really good, having powerful mid-bass up front sounds amazing. If i were a regular person i wouldn't need subs, but i love my bass. Which i still haven't dialed the Sub amp in yet.

I will try to install one next weekend, this weekend is about the Malibu and the Morel Hybrid Integra 402's that came in the mail yesterday.

This could be an issue. Subwoofers  tend to roll off faster.  An actual midbass speaker would be better. But curious to see how it turns out

The RF P3 8's sound good. These are crossed over from 80-200 hz, the RF T2 6.5" x 2 in each door are crossed over @ 180 hz  and up. I guess it bass and the 2 10's are sub bass?

Not trying to tell you how to do it. But just from experience you're doing to much. Less is more in this case.  Get yourself a good set of 8" midbass and you can delete the 6.5 and skar subs all together

I appreciate the suggestions but with the doors & kick panels costume fiber glassed.  I plan to  run with the set up the way it is.

Always wanted to listen to a pair of those 8’s , they look tough , I thought about doing 4 or 5 under a seat sealed. I run a single 10 Skar VD in my beater and it’s been running for 5yrs now and got no complaints .

I will do a side by side test against the RF P3 8" for a week or so to get  a feel for how the sound after being broke in. The build of these speakers are solid, so excited to hear how the sound. I will up date next week & a few weeks later on there performance. Thanks for sharing man!
