    Default Need help picking Sub!!

    I have a custom made box to fit on my boat in the cockpit area
    (Free Air?) and the inside cubic feet of the box is .975 The amp puts out 150 watts RMS and it will only fit a 8 inch sub.
    Hoping someone can point me to the right sub from this info.

    THANK YOU!!!
    Kevin
    P.S. I just saw a post that said u should not mix subs so you sould know the other sub in the cockpit (also running on 150watts) is a Bazooka 8''marine bass tube. The reason I did not
    just get two of them is I really don't have room for the first one!!
    (Hard to custom fit a round tube in a square area!)

    .975 ft^3 is ginormous, but in an open space like that, it might work very well... polk makes 8" subs :). i have an RE 8" that does pretty damn well, too.

    You might wanna contact (Chris?) at Ascendant Audio ( www.ascendantaudio.com ) and ask him when his 8" sub will be available. It will be the absolute BEST for the cash as far as accuracy will go, along with output. It features the beloved XBL ^2 motor, with long excursion motors...

    Won't cost an arm and a long either...

    Thats my two cents.

    well, i'd build the box as you have it planned, because you can always glue 2x4s in later if necessary... you may find that a larger box is better, because you have no cabin gain, which car subs are designed to take into account. build big, tweak if necessary.
