Default single sa 8 in a bus?

I want to put a single sa 8 in my brothers band bus. They listen to alot of metal, and they just want some extra kick.
the sub will be in the back of the bus.
I was thinking a sub up, port up design would be best.
going to have it on 500 watts.
tuning around 42?
any suggestions?

so i thought i had a d4 but it's a d2 so I have to run it at 4 ohm. The sub is actually getting 250 watts. before i saw your post I just looked at sundowns website and built a .28 box, and i must say it was not that great lol. we just wanted it in tonight so we went sealed to make it fast and easy. what size box with how much port area would i need, keeping in mind its going to be playing metal, to get the best sound?

I would really run it a 1 ohm. Or is your amp not 1 ohm stable?

Don't run the sa8 sealed

Really your best bet is get a cheap 12 that likes sealed boxes and let her rip

The sa8 is an amazing sub but with what you have a cheap 12 sealed on 500w vs 250 on the 8 will out proform it any day
