Default One sa8v2 on 1k. Box ideas?

I've done a few ported boxes and they sound alright, but I would like to do something more sq oriented. I know, 1k is a lot for sq. Being that I don't have a meter, my version of loud is probably different from a lot of people here. i really want to be able to enjoy my music, but crank it if i ever feel the need.

What is a good plan to go for with one 8" on 1k? I considered that 6th order from surreal but from what i read, overpowering the driver in that enclosure doesn't bode so well. Is this true?

I had a sa-8v2 powered by a clamped 1000 watts. I ended up with .45 net. It loss some on the low end but I wanted to ensure no mechanical damages.

I was wondering if you could curve a round port like that! I love the creativity. I'm kind of in the same boat as the OP. Would like to do a ported for sq but can't run deep ports. So sorry to the OP, no solutions for you but had to jump in a compliment the great box from JWS84.

Well it does decrease its efficiency and I had a little bit of port noise. But as you can see, I really didn't have any other options.

Thanks for the props

I think 1000 watts to that sub might be a tad too much. I prob wouldn't go more than 800-900. I have the same sub.

Alright. I doubt the gain will be maxed anyway.

Why would you want to give that much power to the woofer? The gains are going to minimal especially playing music. If you want SQ, you definitely don't want a tiny box with a limited frequency response- and by that I mean a loss of low end. Essentially what you are creating is a SPL style box with a small air space and a huge port. That's all that box is going to be good on, the meter.

I'm a bit confused by that post, JT. You worded it as if i had already decided on a box. That's why this thread is here. I haven't yet. It's all ideas at this point. I've got the amp, a DD CM1000, but no woofer yet.

What would be a better option then? Something to dig deeper but still play loud if necessary.

Daily driving would be more ideal.
