Tang Band W8-740P 8" Subwoofer
Box size for 12 inch dayton passive radiator
I want to buy 2 of these and put them with 2 dayton 12 inch passive radiators (the cheap ones on this site). How big should each chamber for each sub be? Im using it in my grand marquis so its for music not movies. I want it to be somewhat musical too. Someone said they used .6 cubic ft but im still not sure
Passive radiator boxes, regrettably, are not suitable for auto use...That is, it would work, but not anywhere near as intended. PR's are entirely passive, that means they have no control. Essentially a large weighted mass suspended on the side of your box.The G-forces of regular driving would affect the PR massively and the PR in turn would affect the driver massively. Best case scenario, the system is off when you round a bend or stop suddenly and the hundred ounce or so PR cone reaches its maximum physical limit and rips itself to pieces. That would completely bottom out the sub woofer and might even damage it.Now imagine all that cone area and weight of the PR pushing IN all the way...two of these in tiny little boxes, 0.2 cubes each, (no really, just a little bigger than what will physically hold the driver!) with 100/150W each and crossed over no higher than 100Hz will be surprisingly punchy. After you factor in cabin gain a simple setup like this wouldn't even need porting, even though the driver seems to be made for it.

I would like to know if these three item will work together to make a very good sub for music. I plan to use a pair of them with book shelf speakers.

Musically the tang band is good, but in such a big enclosure, I would say that it may be a bit too big, but the real problem it the power of that amp. It is much too high for the sub. With a 150 rms rating on the woofer and a 252 rms on the amp, you run the risk of blowing the woofer at a big bass moment. I suggest either a beefier woofer, or a smaller amp. You may end up with a desirable sound with this set up, but it would be asking for the woofer to fail. Best of luck!Also, I have attached a woofer I find more suitable. It is both more technically except able and more appealing. Also, be sure to add dampening foam and poly fill. And you might want to try just one of these at first.

sonosub with this driver
Hi, I have a Bash 300 sub ampli and one of those sub, would a .9cuf volume ported with a 3"by8" be a good solution?
This would work out pretty well as long as the enclosure is heavily stuffed. If you can get away with a slightly longer port, something like 12-14" it would be perfect.

Box tuning situation
My van is limited to a 10" x 42" x 21" box size under the back seat, or about 3.88cf. Would 4 Dayton RSS210HO-8's be more appropriate, or 2 of these? My amp puts out 300 watts at 2 ohms and I am looking for maximum performance given these limitations. I have run a Dayton RSS390HO facing up in this box sealed and am now running 4 RS270-8's in this box tuned to 28hz and both had seemingly no low bass and extremely muddy upper bass. I also ran 6 x 6" buyout speakers (12ohms each, 2ohms total) facing forward in this box sealed and the sound was much deeper, cleaner, and louder until the voice coils fried. 8" is the biggest I can fit if I face the drivers forward. I listen to a lot of metal and need a fast clean kick.
Of the two options, four RSS210HO-8 woofers would be the best in that volume. If you built the external dimensions of the enclosure to what you specify with two 4" diameter ports that are 15" long each, you will have a tuning frequency of 29 Hz and a very smooth response.
