Default What version SA-8 do you have ?



So it is a bit confusing due to several updates along the way... so the above should help out when ordering a re-cone kit.

We need to know what version you have to built the correct kit.

Aside from the box printing being a bit mis-leading it's not super hard to understand using the above picture.

The 60 unit run of "v.2" woofers (v1.75) was only sold to a few people who knew up front about what they were -- I just had the factory put v.2 on the box so we would know what they were as we unloaded the truck. But I am sure someone will get one of them second hand. They can be re-coned to standard v1.5 parts with copper coil and hard spider.

As the photo indicates the baskets cannot be swapped around. This is due to a bolt pattern variation -- some savvy users have drilled their own patterns and that is fine as all version v1 through v1.75 have compatible motors -- there is only a slight gap variation across generations of those but not enough to make a significant difference when using them together.

The actual v.2 model is COMPLETELY different. Someone would have to make custom adapters and/or drill and tap the top plate of an older motor to use the basket. I am not planning to offer this adapter.

I was just about to ask you to make a thread like this. Nice.

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

I was training new guy Thomas last night on building SA-8s... and I realized how difficult it was to tell him what version part to get *laughs* So this should help everyone.

I'm glad you posted this! Right now i'm competing with 1 10" sub in my reg cab truck and i'm highly considering replacing it with 4 of the sa-8v2's, one concern i had was going to be the relationship between the subs basket and the box material thickness; usually i have to radius the inside of the box face to allow proper air flow and i see the v2 has i'm guessing about what, 0.500" from the rim to the opening in the basket?

It is just under 1/2" -- correct. The distance from the top of the spider spacer ring to the bottom of that rim is also a full inch.
