Looking for a mean 8" woofer for my next frontstage project. I need somthing that will sound good and can put out a good deal of volume, it will be mated to 2x5.25" peerless drivers (per door, 110rms each) and a tweeter yet to be decided (probably getting over 100 watts rms).

Im hoping for somthing that can handle 250+ watts rms, and has a low load, 2ohms would make my day, and will perform well for midrange duty.

I thought ID made a driver close to these specs, however I havnt had any luck locating any info on it.

Any infor or direction will be greatly appriciated, cant wait for any ideas! :D

How about an eD 9kv.2? The guy I bought my 16Kv.2 from hit around 138dB from two 9Kv.2's in a ported box (there's a thread on icixsound forums about it)... I'm pretty sure they come in dual 2ohm & dual 4ohm configurations... maybe some Peerless XLS 8"'s.

i agree with the suggestion of a 9kv2. i am using 2 in my car. these subs put out a LOT of low end, but do tend to get a bit myddy if crossed over above 80Hz. otherwise, tons of throbbing output in a Tiny enclosure are easily possible. i currently run 200 watts to each, so they are not that power hungry either. overall, they do for me what i wanted at a great price point.

I was actually eye balling the sound splinter 8, it might be perfect for my app, but i cant find much info for it in the midbass region.

Thos Crystal CMP8's look great too, but again cant find much info for it doing midbass duty. anybody know the mounting depth on these?

Email Sound Splinter for tech issues. I have a friend who is a Crystal dealer, I will email him to get more tech data on those...
