you already built the boxes and NOW your asking if their good? w/e

8" is small, and depending on the subs u get it probably wont be the loudest thing you will hear... but that depends on what you call loud...

dont get reference subs, junk, how much u money you willing to spend for 2 8"s and an amp

no, and no. The 8's can not hit deep, but they can hit tight and clean. They will not get that loud.

but i herd the infinity reference could get pretty loud ther 200rms and my amp gives out 200 rms but do 8" subs sound good for bass cuz thats all i could fit in my car... so the wattage doesnt mean anything it depends on how big the cone is??

you are worse then talking to a brick wall. You can fit larger then 8"s in a mustang. I've seen mustangs pull off 2 15"s...guess you have the shits for install skills.

rofl 200rms, i shit on 200rms, there are cheap ass 12's that handle 1000watts... reference are junk like i said... and 8"s wont get too loud like we both said, if you wanted deeeep bass your gonna need a 15" ported. how many 8's do you have?

question, why do you have 4 speakers of unknown sizes in the same box?....


and furthermore, it depends on how you want that box set up, for spl or sql, and what subs you would be using, as to whether it would be suitable or not...
