Default Max SPL from a single SA or MA 8

I've had this idea of just grabbing a single 8 and pushing it to its limits, and I finally have some spare cash to do so. I'm pretty much decided it will either be an SA or MA 8", also up for debate, but my main concern is what size/ type of box with what port?

I have a 6" flared Aero from my 15" build, so that is in the cards as an option. But my real question is how large should the box and port be? I'm not opposed to a slot port either. I've built a few boxes but never anythingthing souly SPL oriented. I would also like to get volume from lows more than numbers. Suggestions? Thank you in advance

Get 5 gallon bucket. Cover one end, insert sub. Cover other end, insert 6" aero. Burp. Enjoy.

In case you're wondering whether I'm kidding or not, refer to the pic in my sig and then search my username on YT for the "bass bucket." Lmao.

Listen to this guy^ He knows his stuff.

I'd pick up an SA-8 v.2 with the SPL coil/spiderpack.

But thanks for chiming in. Your opinion is duly noted.

In all seriousness... the SA basically crushes any other 8 out there with the exception of the impossible to find/buy Atomic 8 and the upcoming Tantric 8. The DD 2508 could probably give it a run, but I haven't tested one or care to pay their asking price.

.5cf, couple 4" aeros and let it eat.

lol...don't need torres for a single 8 aero box
length x width x height, divided by 1728 to get cu.ft.
mess with that till you have the desired internal volume. Make the aero external and you don't have to deal with port displacement.
psp-inc.com to get the length needed for the aero

He says he wants lows more than numbers, but wants to push the sub to its limit. Sounds like two different goals

I actually just noticed that too.

You want high volume? Or lows? It's one or the other. If its lows you want, it's a daily build. And I don't know what a daily has to do with being solely an SPL build.

Basically what you want is to throw a bunch of power on an 8 in a daily box?

Not sure why that needed it's own thread or why you're taking about a 6" aero "being in the cards," but have fun.
