A) Audiobahn blows

B) 8" sub? why bother.

Audiobahn is junk, dont even bother with them, everything is overrated and is built poorly.

There are SEVERAL 8's better than Audiobahns.

CDT makes a good 8".
Resonant Engineering makes a good 8".
Elemental Designs makes a good 8".

There are several out there.

A) Correct.

B) Sub size doesnt matter for anything except for ultra-low end extension. A slong as you dont care about playing 25hz at insanely powerful levels. An 8" Might be great. I once remember a friend and I built a HUGE ported box for two 6.5" woofers (I think it was 1.8cu-ft tuned to 27hz). We went around town asking people thought what we had, almost everyone said "Two Twelves?", a few even said "OH, those are 15's!". Then when they saw it they couldn't believe two 6.5's could put out so much bass, each woofer was getting 150rms.

When I ran my four 8's, I couldn't notice a HUGE difference between them and my two 15's. Both were getting the same power. The only way you could tell a huge difference in output was below 35hz.
