    - This REL is $699 but goes on sale all the time for $599 (this is what I paid and run, sounds awesome with movies or music). https://rel.net/shop/powered-subwoof...ie-ht/ht-1205/
    - Klipsch has their SPL subs on sale too. https://www.klipsch.com/spl-subwoofers

    Those look tempting, I will have to see if I can find one local to listen to.

    I would love to do that but already have two end tables. I would love to go with a 15 or larger but that's why the two 8s caught my eyes, smaller box but able to compete with a 15 for sound. My wife complained the 12 was too big, so I am trying to compromise.

    If this is for your Living Room and Home Theater duties, I'd favor stepping up to a larger driver. But this is coming from someone with an 18" disguised as an end table in his LR.

    (2) 8" drivers have the cone area (surface area) of less than a single 12". A single 18" has 10x the surface area of an 8" driver. Dual 8's is equivalent to a single ~11". Not only would a larger driver move more air, but also likely offers a lower FR. Obviously size and cost some into play.

    Klipsch has some insane deals on entry level subwoofers right now - $199 for a 12" with 400 watts peak amp (~200 RMS). Not in the same class as Rel, IMO, but pretty good value. Around 18" cube size wise.

    Good to know, I got a buddy who thinks he can fix the amp on my Velodyne. So he is doing that, might pick up a klipsch for that price and run dual 12s for now

I found a prefabricated dual 8" 4ohm dvc vented loaded enclosure that is rated 700rms but prewired to 1ohm. I will rewire to 4ohms but should I find the subs in a 2ohm dvc and run more power to them? For the amp, subs and box I will be at $400. Is there a better option for the price?

    The reason I am looking at dual 8s is just the low profile box. Should I go with a single larger sub instead? It will be for movies, music and gaming.

    I had my Velodyne fixed by Parlophone in Bloomfield Hills.
    I cant find it anymore. When did they close ?
