Tang Band W8-740P 8" Subwoofer
I have a sealed box with .15 cubic feet of space. I want the deepest sound I can get from it. I have up to 270 watts available to drive it. What would be the best driver for this box? The W8-740P seems like it would be a nice choice.
This woofer will work well in that volume as long as you keep it sealed. Depending on application, this will play into the low 40's in a home and low 30's in a vehicle.

I need an 8" replacement speaker for my Polk Audio PSW120 Powered Sub Woofer. I think this one might fit the bill. Any thoughts or input would be greatly appreciated. THANKS.
I would recommend the Dayton DCS205-4 for a replacement in this subwoofer.

Can you please explain differences 740P vs 1363SBF. Both are 150W rms. Would a larger enclosure around .35 cu/ft work better in a car?(better low frequency output, and they are prefabbed) RE - ZTX800 bridged for 1 sub. Front Dayton comp. Thanks
Both of these woofers work in very similar enclosures and provide a very similar modeled response. I would usually recommend a woofer with a rubber surround for a car application. These are both notoriously difficult to vent in a small box without a passive radiator. A 0.35 volume will be best suited keeping these sealed, in which case you can expect in-car response into the 30's. A vented box this small is not practical unless you can use an external port, but for either woofer in that volume the port would need to be 3" in diameter minimum and 40" long for a decent tuning frequency.

I would like to know the diameter of the magnet. I want to install these in a Miata and I have limited space where I want to put them.
The magnet is 6-1/4" in diameter.

I am looking at #264-584 . I have an enclosure of .696 cu. ft.what are your recommendations?Sealed or vented, etc?
I would recommend venting that volume with a 2-1/2" diameter, 10" long port that will provide an F3 of 37 Hz.

Thanks, MattP. I cant see how the slot could be 11.5 wide. Should the the box be 11"H x11.5"W x 13"D and the Slot port would be 1/2"H x 10"W x 11.75"L. using 3/4 material.Also would I just cut a hole and mount the plate amp in this box? It is 4in deep.
I apologize, the external dimensions should have been 13"H x 10"W x 13"D and the port 1/2"H x 8.5"W x 12"L.
