Default 8in Subwoofer 8 ohm

Hi All

I'm in the market for a 8in subwoofer than can provide 8 ohm load. I know JL Audio use to make a W3 but it has since been discontinued and now they only make a 4 ohm version. I'd like to find something similar in spec ~250W RMS.

I'm looking for suggestions and would appreciate your feedback.

Thanks

Any dual 4 ohm sub can be wired to 8 ohms

What is motivating the 8ohm requirement?

I'm replacing the subwoofer in my Audi A7 with Bang & Olfusen. The sounds system is excellent but the lower end could use just a touch more bass. A few folks on the forum have been replacing this sub with other 8inch subwoofers and it's said to be using 8ohm. A few have still went a head and used 4ohm subs but I'm nervous to push the amp too hard and would rather use the recommended 8 ohm.

If it will fit that ID8 posted above might be your best choice.

OEM U-Connect 8.4a, JL Fix 82, c-dsp 6x8, JL XD800/8, Soundstream TN1200.1, stock rears controlled properly by minidsp 2x4 with rear fill plug-in, ID15, SB Acoustics SB17NRXC35-4, Seas Neo Aluminum...HASTE MAKES WASTE

One of these might be worth a try: NVX VSW84V2

I wonder who makes the V series subs for NVX? I know SB Acoustics makes the top tier NVX speakers, this one looks more like an ID sub.
