I bought this to be the sub stage on a daily driver build in my 2015 Chevy Sonic hatch, using the RP-600.5 amplifier. The VVX-8v3 D2 was a great choice for me. I paired it with the single, armor coated enclosure from Skar. It looks and sounds phenomenal for a single 8" on most any music I feel like listening to during my commute.
I started with 2 twelve inch Power Accoustic subs. I show my jeep and wanted something different and flashy. I was hoping to get the same thump that I was getting from the 2 twelves. The 6 VVX-8V3's blows it away. It has been amazing!!!!!!!!
I started with the IX 8 bass package as the first system in my car in more than a few years. I quickly got the bass bug back and decided to upgrade to the VVX8. I like 8 inch subs because they get low and loud but not too bass heavy as too drown things out. The response is great and right on time. I ran it in the sealed box the IX 8 came in for a week or so and then ordered the SK1X8V box and my that made a world of a difference. It hits so much harder and lower and is so much louder in that box. I have it paired with the RP 350.1D running 1ohm and it is the perfect match. I will probably add another VVX8 somewhere down the road and upgrade my amp as well but for now this thing is perfect. Especially in the SK1X8V box at 1 cu. ft. I love what Skar is doing with the car audio industry. They make a high quality product at a great fair price.
