    8\" sub question

    Would two 8's in the side panels be loud and have deep bass or would 2 10's sound a lot better? I'm thinking 8's would go in the sides with no prob but 10's might need more depth.

    Re: 8

    your talking about the side panels in the cargo area right?you need to take measurements to see how much air volume there will be behind the panels,and it has to be sealed to be right ,unless you use a free air sub which doesnt sound as good.subs require a certain amount of space +-10%to work as designed,if you go with the 10's make sure you have the airspace.your ears will be happy if you do.also,it will tell in the subs owners manual what the airspace of the enclosure should be.they differ so shop around.
