|December 8, 2008||rare shallow mount 8||
Lee from gatineau, PQ, Canada
Not many shallow 8's out there.
This is a great looking subwoofer, very shallow mounting and the best part is small box requirements.
Something most people don't know is that these work well in an IB install and thus don't require a sub box (as per the manual). They can be mounted in the rear deck of a car that has a trunk.
I tried them out as dedicated midbass' but these are definitely subs, they did not do a good job as midbass'.
As subs they do pretty good but they do have limited output since they have such limited x-max and low efficiency.
I do like that pioneer's manual has many different configurations and box sizes for these guys. I was only able to try IB.
Unless you require a small box and the shallowness i would suggest to look elsewhere. However for what they are there aren't many shallow 8's out there, they are an interesting choice for stealthy or small space installs. For what they are, they are great, but in general there are better 8's out there.
I didn't use them very long so can't speak on reliability, but one of the 2 I ordered did not work. fortunately it was an easy fix, the side have push terminal inputs and it just needed a little bit of soldering. They seem solidly built.
