I've not experince in project home/little system... 12V powered...

no bigger than 8"

and i thin it will be about 3 way, so we can imagine that xover would be 100hz or something like...

i know from physics that size "matter" when we talk about bass and reproduce it, wich is the best speaker size -keeping in mind that the goal si to going as little as possible and as low as possible- no idea about enclousure yet...could be little reflex or other plan that can give me good sub response... even band pass or horn (i dont think is a good solution)

even if u have some "reference" model it will be nice...

I have a couple of VOLT 8" studio drivers. They are an old model but have not been used since a factory re-cone. According to the data sheet they will go to 50Hz in a 14 litre box, 42hz in 22 litres, or 38Hz in 30 litres. All figs are @ -3dB.

If interested I can send a copy of the data sheet.

Tangband w8-740p is meant to be a monster if it has to be an 8". They also have some quite silly 6.5"s.
Don't test the champignon sound

Second the TangBand W6-1339 or it's ferrite brother, 6.5" with very good price/ performance, bit power hungry though.

For a home application these will be very hard to beat, if I was doing another home system I would look no further.

As I said it's an old model, the LS201. It's on the winisd driver data base if you want to check out the performance.

If you want the best, that would probably be the Faital Pro 8PR200.

id like to make another question about this topic:

if 6.5" is capable of 83db and fs of 35. if i put a double of 6.5" then it will be 86db or I wrong?
then against 
a single 8" with 84db with fs 30hz.

so single 8" or double 6.5"?
maybe in the same space i can fit even a 10" !!!!

if ill load a single 8" probably the 8" will be like a bandpass and not with the speaker in front as direct radiator....so the spaaker maybe will direct to the floor for example...
If ill load 2, 6.5" it will be a little reflex with the speaker in front of the listener...

who will play more loud and more bass?
which is the most convenient enclosure speaker/size
