    The "small driver means better transient response" idea doesn't really hold up, especially since you'd be likely to end up porting that small driver. Transient response isn't just based on the moving mass. It's also based on the motor design.

    Transient response is more or less moot in the non-directional frequencies. What counts is moving air, and an eight will only move so much before distortion becomes far more of an issue than anything else.

    Want great sound, good transient response and a driver that wont break the bank. Get the Dayton Reference 10" or 12". They're very musical in a small sealed box, might not shake the foundation but they sound darn good. They can shake the house in a ported box but the box size is about double. They make a reference 8" sub as well but considering the price and box size there aren't many reasons not to go with the 10 or 12.

    I picked up some great little TangBand 8" drivers off e-bay for about $10 each with free shipping... But I bought 6 of them.

    While it could give you a small box a 10" will generally be more efficient and a 12" even more so and will go deeper than a poor little 8.

    What are the size restrictions for the sub enclosure?

    Both of the Tang Bands are supposed to be pretty good. They are not in the Soundsplinter's league, but they are A LOT cheaper. Creative Sound's Trio 8 is also supposed to be pretty good (it is 8 ohm though). It's got XBL-2 to boot. Soundsplinter also has some buyout drivers they call "orphan eights". They are supposed to be similar to the original 8's, but cheaper. All of these have varied TS parameters....just depends on what you are going to do with them.

    Is it just me or does your subject line sound like the title of an adult film? :p
    Those titles seem to get more looks, go figure. Just like my other thread "3-Way Anyone?"

    Sorry if I was unclear, I am looking for an 8" subwoofer, not mains.

    No, your mind is just as deep in the gutter as mine is.
