    I played around with a much cheaper Skar 8 in a ported box getting around 500W. In our little truck cabin it gets super low and borderline painful real quick.

    1000W and the right box, those subs you posted would start flexing panels i have no doubt.

    But of course it's a trade off, tight and punchy or big and boomy, tough to find a common ground.

    I emailed massive audio and they said 5.4 is mounting depth for the Hippo xl84r which is 900 watts rms. I have a Fosgate BD1000 and it would be perfect for this and a custom ported box. I though about JL dual micro sub 8 but I’m afraid of overloading the W3 8 inch subs

    I looked at the Skar also. Leaning toward massive audio xl84r since mounting depth is 5.4 and the watts are 900 rms. I emailed them for the stats and they are super nice and responsive. I have an older Rockford Fosgate BD1000.1 which is about 1100 rms in birth sheet into 2 ohms

    Back in 2002 I ran 4 JBL gtx8 subs in my car. 600 watts from a ppi pc2150 and they made your eyes vibrate till you couldnt see.

    A single high output 8 can be a beast in a good box
