Tang Band W8-740P 8" Subwoofer
Tang Band W8-740P 8" Subwoofer is rated 4.5806 out of 5 by 62.
Rated 5 out of 5 by from Best Sub for the price.I got one of these subs and I actually put it as a replacement in a bazooka BTA825D active enclosure. It hits much harder then the sub that was originally in the bazooka. Its getting about 200 watts RMS. I'm very happy with it. I know if I make a custom box for this sub to the specs of the manufacturer, then I can definitely get even more bass out of it. This sub is also good for home theater systems.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great performer!Bought 2 of these after reviewing some of the reviews, and am glad I did. Put 2 of these in a 1.8 cubic foot net ported enclosure. Tuned to 38hz, with a 5.5 h x 3.5 w x 20 l port, with 500 clean watts going to them, and could not be happier. (Although once I rebuild the box later, will give it more port area, these little 8's move some air!) Thinking about picking up 2 more in the future, if I can manage to squeeze all 4 into my standard cab F150.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Solid/cleanWithout being technical, Tang Band is a solid brand that is under rated on many levels. Sound quality is perfect, not good, not great, perfect. Magnet (motor) is beefy, spider is well made, cone and surround are great. Have two of these 8in. They go deeper than 2 jl w1 10in subs in sealed box. I put one in a 4th order (sealed and ported box with sub in the middle) and put it in a 2004 F-150. Everyone is shocked at how loud, clear, and earth shaking it is! Same setup for a Honda Accord. Both have a Rockford Fosgate Rockford Fosgate Prime R500X1D 500 at 4 ohms. If you are looking for affordable, compact, and powerful, this is the best sub I have found on the market.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Deserves a big passive radiatorThis is a superb driver as all the other reviews attest. Tremendous Xmax, can be used in very small boxes, sounds like a 10" or 12". However there is one very important thing that doesn't get mentioned much: This thing will over-drive most ports and passive radiators. A 2" diameter port is way too small and will generate turbulence, wind noise and distortion long before the driver runs out of cone travel. Even a 10" Dayton Passive Radiator is too small, this driver can overdrive it at the tuning frequency. That's right, it easily bottoms out a 10" quality PR - I did it with an NAD 2140 amp. You should really use a 12" Passive Radiator with this thing to get all the output it's capable of. And if you do that, it will truly shake the walls.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great drop in replacementSo far this driver is a great replacement for the junk that came in a Cerwin Vega HTIB sub I bought for $20. Without any other tweaks to the enclosure this sub is far better at everything, much lower response, tighter transitions and overall well matched with my 5.25" desktop speakers. For a total investment of $95 it can't be beat.If you're looking for huge low end or lots of SPL, you're going to have to put in more effort than I felt like, but I can believe its very possible.Check the image to see the driver versus what comes in a cheap sub.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from For Car Audio Buy this right now!I was apprehensive about purchasing tang band for my car but did it after reading the positive reviews. All I can say is, this woofer is unbelievable! I custom built a .6 cu/ft fiberglass enclosure for my 2010 Silverado. I have a 2" port 7.5" inches long tuned to 40hz. When I listen to anything with a kick drum it's like someone is hitting you in the chest with a hammer. I still can't beleive this dinky sub can evoke that response. Trust me this is a good buy. I have been in car audio for 20 years.

Tang Band W8-740P 8" Subwoofer

Hi, Looking at the part# 300-7064, the .56 cu. ft. cabinet might also work with the w8-740P, it is closer to optimal and also cheaper. What size port or passive radiator would be acceptable with this cabinet? Thannks

Asked by: Cecil
This volume will work well but only with passive radiators. I would recommend two of the 8" Daytons with 75 grams of weight added to each, which will provide a tuning frequency of 38 Hz and and F3 of 40 Hz.

What size amp should do i need for this? Also are there any boxes for this that are recomended that i could buy?

Asked by: BrickDabkowski
Any amp that is rated for 100-200 watts RMS into 4 ohms would work well for this subwoofer. Our SA100 or the Yung SD200 would both be good options. The only enclosure we have that would work well with this woofer would be the 0.75 cubic foot knock down type below.http://www.parts-express.com/knock-down-mdf-075-cu-ft-subwoofer-cabinet-for-dayton-audio-8-reference-series-ho-subwoof--300-7075

I am building a box for a Tang Band w8-704p 6.5x9.75x27 outside measurements in inches. Int. volume .606 cf. I see that using a 3in port would need to be 20in. Is it possible to use a 2in port of shorter length or would that hurt performance?

I am a newbie when building speaker boxes and will be building a sealed enclosure for this sub. It states that the sealed enclosure should .11ft3, does include the volume of the driver already? 

Asked by: Dscomoore
yes, that would include the displacement of the driver.

Hi, I want to build 2 boxes. One sealed, which you answer a question about, and one ported. I know the ports must be long with this sub, but what port size would you recomend if I built a 9x9x20" (0.60 cu ft) box and which PE port would you recommend?

Asked by: EVB1
The port for this volume would have to be 3" in diameter and 20" long. Unfortunately we do not have any ports that will work for this unless you purchased a Precision Port kit and added an extension tube. This port would have to be external.
