Default Sundown sa-8 v2 and ported box

Has been ordered!! It should be here by the end of the week...maybe early next week!!

Has anyone here ran this set up? Ive done PLENTY of research on these monster 8s and think ill be pretty happy with it.

Itll be in a .75 cu ft box tuned to 34hz by mobile sound works, which is right on spec and powered by a kicker zx750.1


Ill be sure to give a review once its installed since alot of people are sceptical of these, like myself. But like i said, after the homework, i think ill be happy with my choice.

Well i finally had time and finished it all up today and i have to say...i am damn satisfied with the results.
Minus the aux/usb ports. Im going to buy a flush mount and mount them in or under the cig lighter.











Overall!!! I love it. The sa8 is sooooo much better SQ, its just a little louder than the cvr, but it was expected. It plays lower also thanks to the ported box. Its not broke in yet so im takin it kinda easy so far.


As for the kenwood, i love it too. It takes a little time to get used to it since ive ive always had regular single din HU in the past. Takes a little time to change certain settings but im sure ill find shortcuts ect.
Sound quality is great as well and it just looks badass!!!
