Not expecting miracles from a single 8, but if you guys had to choose, which sub would perform best: SA-8, RL-i8, or a DD 1508? No one has bought the 500/1 so I'll be running 500 rms one of these drivers.

I'd go with the RL but most here would say the DD.

I'm a little bias, but I have seen and built some sick setups w/ the DD1508's. So my vote goes to DD1508d4 w/ your amp. (they are available in D2 now also)

I like to match them up w/ the DD C2b (500w+) @ 2ohm. They are pretty picky when it comes to box design and loading though.

Enclosure will be totally dependent on vehicle.

The enclosure I had in there was tuned at 32 Hz and it peaked in my car at 45 Hz if that tells you anything.

Does AQ make an 8" sub? I saw a video of an 8" sdc, yet can't find one on their site. Anyone know anything about that sub?

AQ did offer an 8" for awhile...it was the old SD series, back when they offered 3 lines
(SD, SD2.5, HD3)

They dropped the US-made subs and have all motors built in China now.
Thus the "C" in their current lines.

Hey Canaan, what do DD 1508s with a carbon fiber dust cap retail for? How much do you think they're worth used in good condition?
