So, I asked this once, and used the words "hot debate" and didn't realize those weren't acceptable. I was just asking a question. Mods, how about next time, you please think about locking a post before you lock it? I was just asking a question in my last post.

Anywho, my question is (and was), which is the better sub for the money, the Skar MA-8 or Sundown SA-8? The Skar runs 400 watts rms, and costs $129. The Sundown runs 500 watts and is $150. From what I've seen, they're about the same as far as loudness and sound quality. Am I wrong? Is the Sundown better, or is the extra $20 just for the name?

I will be running the Skar, as a christmas present, on a 500-watt Bazooka CSA300.1, because that's what I've got.

      Got a Skar DDX 12 dual 2 ohm sub 1000w RMS. Christmas gift. Will be going in my 2005 F150 supercrew. I currently have 2 Alpine SWS 10d4 in a sealed Fox Box under the seat with an MB QUART amp, amp come free with the purchase of the 2 subs so it wasnt a bad deal IMO. That system will be going in my wifes Camry, building slot ported box now for it.  Anyways im looking for a louder setup, but also musical as well. I am capable of building my own enclosure, so any suggestions would be appreciated. I was thinking somewhere around 2.25 to 2.75 cu ft after displacements tuned around 35 hz with a 6" aero port but am open to other designs. I have never had an aero port design, always slot ports and was curious to try it out. i have yet to purchase an amp for the sub and was looking into the Skar RP 1500 wired to 1 ohm but am also aware of box rise...so may save a little more for a bit larger amp. Also would like to add that i will be setting the box on the floor in place of where the smaller portion of the rear seat will fold up, for now anyways. Thanks in advance.

      I'm in search for a decent 12" sub preferably under $150 that can handle 500 watts or more. Thinking about getting a Soundqubed HDS2 or S3. Any other suggestions?

      I'm looking at building my first 4th order for a sundown zv4 rev2 15"d2. I have experience building custom boxes but have never built a bandpass. I'm not sure on what ratio to go with. I like lows but would really like something musical. It's going in a extended cab f150 powered by a shark [email protected] Could someone tell me how many cubes for the sealed and ported side and how many sqin my port should be and what's the best to tune it at? Any info is greatly appreciated!

      2 d3400 in the back 
      Modified all stock spots to fit 4 Cresendo neo 6.5s and 2 ft1 tweeters. Ran out of time for the Alphard Audio tweeters so future add on down the road. 
      2 Crescendo 15s 
      Sundown ns1 v1 amp
      2 Sundown 50.4 for mids
      Box is tuned around 40hz maybe less, not sure since space was limited and had to get creative to put the box in.
