Sundown Audio U8 D4 Subwoofer:
The Sundown Audio, U series 8-inch Dual 4 Ohm Subwoofer Down4Sounds Top Pick for 8's. The Sundown U8 is a conserve rating at 600 watts of power; these subwoofers can take the heat; they are also very musical and built like a tank. The Sundown U8 is fully capable of hitting both DEEP and Punchy Bass, The U 8 sub is one investment you thank yourself for buying at Down4Sound!
We start with a double-stacked / 8.66” wide Y35 grade ferrite magnet system coupled to a one-piece, bumped T-Yoke and a 0.6” thick top-plate. Just as with the Z v.3 before it and our other high-end subwoofers we also add a very thick (5mm thickness) aluminum shorting ring inside the magnets to reduce static inductance and level out inductance over stroke. The U series motor also features a 0.6” long pole-extension to keep the coil under control at high levels of excursion.
The voice coil is a 2.36” long / 3” diameter 4-layer aluminum winding / aluminum former unit – which is the same coil we use in our X v.2 series and, thus, the U series has the same 1500-watt RMS ratings. The coil temperature is kept in check by a heavily smoothed / high-velocity pole-vent and a series of ten direct air-gap vents in the back plate. The U series also features newly tooled cast aluminum vent rings in between the frame and top plate to effectively exchange air at a high velocity over the voice coil beneath the spider landing.
The U series features an all-new cast aluminum frame series to the Sundown line which allows for taller cones than the older frames used on the Z v.3 series. The taller cones provide enhanced coil stability and increased mechanical excursion capability. We also tooled matching cast-aluminum surround clamps for the U series to ensure durability in the most demanding situations. The surrounds and cone bodies have been fully custom tooled especially for the U series and are stronger / support more excursion than the Z v.3 series cones and surrounds. The new cone bodies also feature an indentation for the same wide-flange, ultra-strong dust caps as our new platform subwoofers.
If you are looking for a woofer that sounds similar to the SA series but handles significantly more power… the U series is exactly what you need. It has been designed to live up to the reputation earned by our Z v.3 series both in terms of every-day music enjoyment and SPL competition

The U-8 series is most definitely a car shaker! I have 2 wired at 1ohm amped with a 1500 watt audiopipe. My boys thought I had 2 12's until I popped the trunk. Yeah 2 8's slappin'!!!
