ID's idea of passive crossovers is really just a really intricate highpass for the tweeter and full-range for the mids. So I guess, yeah, you could just use them for the tweeters and use a different amp/different channels for the mids and it'd be the same effect.

Didn't someone here have an SA-8 or two? Jacob is selling some old stock for really cheap and I have been oogling the v2's. The v2's he's selling are QC rejects, but the v1.5s are apparently just old stock. I might take two to beat on. Any experiences?

Haven't ever used them but really want to. I'd love a pair of 1.5's or 2's.

Never heard anything bad on them.

I had 2 SA-8 V.2s. Weren't running on a ton of power but they were surprising. I haven't had a whole lot of experience in car audio, but they definitely hit louder and lower than any of the pre-fab Kicker crap I've heard haha. I loved them, but some ******* thought it would be cool to break into my old Trooper and steal them. I considered buying some more from this yard sale but I'm thinking of picking up a 10" SSA Gcon instead.

Fs is a speaker's Fundamental sound, or Free air resonance. Every room, car, and speaker has one. It is the frequency that it will play the loudest if given the same amount of power through all frequencies.

And actually after looking at the E series, it isn't as low as i thought. I think it's either their SD series or their SD's that will e replacing their current SD's that have a stupid high Fs.

Considering i only have 1500 watts to play with at the moment, I am a bit weary considering how much power they seem to take, but on second thought, they seem to be fine on less so I think I'm going to go for it.

You don't think 1500w would be enough for 2 SA-8s?

Yeah I use an RE 1500.1 2000W, I'm guessing around 1200W Rms. l push 2 RD Studio 15s, even cranking the amp stays nice and cool.

One thing about RE amps tho, the only drawback is they are not very efficient. The prices are super cheap though. They pull alot of put out some. So make sure you have the battery's/alt setup to do so. Other than that, the are solid!

I just finished installing a pair of SA8v2's on an AP15001D today, and so far they sound insane for a couple of 8's. Surprising low end... when you get into some lows, they will make my steering wheel move. I'm not used to this kind of bass haha
