Conclusion: These small 8s produce great sound. They don't bang like 10s or anything, but they do produce some bass. A lot more than you would expect. Can't go wrong for the price. Add some nice sounds to your system without over doing it!!
If you are limited on space, or like tight clean bass, buy this speaker.

Summary: For the money,you can not get a better sub woofer. I paid $31 dollars for this Lanzar 8" sub new with shipping. I installed it into a 0.8 cubic foot sealed box in my Jeep Wrangler that had a JL audio W1 8 inch sub in it previously. For a amp I am giving this sub a clean and true 80watts rms from a Soundstream amp with a low pass crossover set at 220hz.
Conclusion: First let me say i love sonic electronix! The shipping is super fast and they are great! I cannot say the same about this sub. The build quality is really bad. One tinsel lead is shorter than the other! It is really tight to the cone and the speaker terminals are loose (cheaply) attached to the frame. It was unusable right out of the box. Not worth sending back due to shipping charges. Buyer be ware of this junk sub! Lanzar is not the old school company i remember SAD.
Conclusion: This sub is crap you can get more bass out of your speakers than this. with a 300w amp almost all the way down it starts to bottom out and sounds like crap. If your locking for bass that you cant even hear and isnt clean at all this is the sub for you.
Conclusion: I bought four of these bad little subs to prove a point. You don't need big expensive equipment to get loud. Im running a 12x25x25 box with just one 4" round port with 4" of port length and it sounds amazing. I have not metered it yet but I plan on installing another 4 subs on the other side of the box I like them so much. My last system cost me over $7,000 in parts and labor and I cant believe that these cheap subs sound better than that.
Conclusion: These would actually be a good sub for a 50 watt deck with no amp. These subs cannot handle any more power than that without bottoming out. Factory replacement is fine but do not buy these to build a system from. You will be very disappointed.
