Coil Configuration
The Skar Audio IX-8 D2 is a high performance 8-inch, dual 2-ohm component car subwoofer. The IX series makes for a great daily subwoofer, and was engineered to be extremely efficient and reliable, all while sounding great and getting down. Featuring a high temperature 2-inch copper voice coil and powerful single slug, ferrite magnet motor - this subwoofer can perform at peak levels for extended periods of time safely.
Punchy, responsive, and capable of getting low, this 10-inch subwoofer will work great in a variety of applications. Furthermore, it utilizes an advanced cooling structural design which optimizes performance even further. Last but not least comes the premium strength paper cone and high roll foam surround, which allow for the versatility of this driver to get nice and low while also being responsive.
