From personal experience and due to the fact that no1 really buys 8"s i wouldn't know much about them so don't think im a noob. I want to put a minor system in my car just a little boom. I don't know what an 8 sounds like....from my common sense it will sound bubbly if it tries to hit low notes. I will be putting a bass tube in the car or a ported box and will be only 1 sub. Also i will be keeping my stock unit (yea i know BOOO!!!)... and what would be a good LOC to use that doesn't restrict a big amount of frequency.

Whats your budget for everything including sub, amp, box, wiring ect.

Any sub/amp combo will sound better than a bass tube, don't waste your time.

With the size of cars becoming more and more compact sub manufacturers will be challenged in offering equal output from smaller drivers, (shallow mounts, 8"-10" drivers, ect...).

Not everyone has enough room to tote around a fridge sized box.

i already have an amp. Its a Solidaudio amp and most people here prob never heard of it but its excellent and someone here has won competitions with this company. 500watts. Like i said nothing big. If that's the case then i'll just get a ported box. I will prob go with a cheap 10" sub don't really know which one yet...i want bass and will prob run about 250watts to the sub max. And i don't want a heavy box i was thinking the smaller it is the lighter the box is.

I have two dd 1508s and they really suprised me. The lows are actually pretty dam good to be honest. i got more lows than i do high bass with these. 8s are cool cuz like you said not many people have them so its different. But if you want a lil more bass and lose a lil more rooms you can just get the ten. check my vid out.
