    Default 8" SQ subs

    First off, subs have never been my forte in car audio. I like to have some good bass, as long as it meshes with the music well and doesnt overpower. Therefore, I am looking more for a quality sub at a decent price. I would ideally like to have four 8" subs, but am sure I would be content with two. To paint a picture, I absolutely love my pair of db124's as it is a great sounding sub with a great price at 50 each.

    I have an mtx 942 designated for subs (birthsheet had it rated at just under 800 watts rms), so power is not an issue for 8"s. I would be happy to have the momo or db series 8", but would like to hear about some of the more obscure companies out there and how they stack up compared to polk's line. I.E. soundsplinter, elemental designs, adire, arc, rainbow.

    I would also like to know everyones feelings on the new "flat" subs that pioneer and a few other companies have come out with.

    My good friend has an 8" SoundSplinter sub (RL-i8). Everyone who listens to his system is always impressed with the sub's output, and how it sounds.

    I am currenlty running a 12" Arc S12D sub, it is a very nice sounding subwoofer. It is not a bass monster, but if clean sound with good output is what you are after this sub can dish it out.

    I plan on picking up an 8" sub from DLS soon to run in a freeair application in the factory Bose sub location. Going for extra room in the trunk.

    Are there any 8"s that excel in free-air? This would be my ideal set-up, as I could install them in the access door.
