Single ZVX 8” in a 1.58cubic ft box I built tuned to 34hrtz and it slams!!! Gets nice and low for an 8”.
So I have given my 3rd zvx time to break in a bit. The amount of air that is coming out is UNBELIEVABLE! I know it doesn't sound like much but I am now able to do (small) hair tricks. I never really thought possible. Most people will sleep on you if you say you have 8's, but jaws drop when they hear you. These are by far the hardest hitting subs in their size. If you want LOTS of sound regardless of space these should be on your list. Please excuse the dirty dust cap on my one sub I smeared glue on it when I was moving the box
Recently made a new dual 8in sub box with freshly rebuilt zvx8 subs. Painted the baskets white, placed the sticker that was behind the motor onto the frame, used more ca glue to withstand the lows, red stitching on the surround to cone, and used thick tinsel leads (took about a days worth to sow) used extra strong thread for jeans. Box is tuned to 33.97hz, net vol. 2.6cu.ft. and with a 4in aeroport from xscorpion on ebay.
I inverted the subs just for a picture but have them mounted normal in my suv. Subs were not finished yet when i had them inverted for that pic but they are done now. These have a very stiff suspension design and would say they take around 6 months to fully break in. I kept the same suspension design which uses four spiders with spacer per sub. Two spiders on top of spacer and two spiders below spacer. Subs were originally dual 2 ohm and I rebuilt these to be dual 4 ohm. Amp I am using is a skar rp2000 and let me tell you that it slams hard and deep just how my wife likes it. For sure though that these might not perform as expected for some people at first because of it's stiff suspension, but after they break in, you won't regret it.
First off these things are beefy and definitely quality all the way guess I’m just use to the 10and 12 but I thought I’d try something new and go with 2-8” in a custom built ported box it sounds great at times shakes the mirrors but then some songs I’ve got to dial the gain knob back at least half way cause clips really bad idk I’m used to setting and every blue moon changing the knob or when cop rolls up but it’s almost every song I’m having to change it and that’s y the 4 stars but bass doesn’t carry at all like 10/12/15 and that’s expected but does boom inside...so if u want to beat down block look for 12/15 but if have small space and wanting boom boom this is what u get just for the money think I’ll make the 10s work next time I like beating down the block🤷🏻♂️💪🏻
