Default Question RE: DVC

Hi: I'm planning to buy an 8" Bazooka and have a question. Do all of the 2005 models have Dual Voice cones? Do any of the 2004 models have dual voice cones? Thanks.

They're coils, and it seems to be that all the amplified tubes are dual voice coil.

I was just wondering because some amplified tubes on Ebay list the number of voice coils as "single" and others as "dual."

The amplified tubes come in dual and single coils as well as the passives. But in the amplified versions there really no need to know whether the woofer is dual or single. Now in the passive versions there may be a need to know. And that need to know needs to be addressed first by how much power a person is going to be sending to the sub and other important things, like what type of music you listen too, what type of vehicle it is going to be installed in.

I'll be installing the tube in the back of an 05 Xterra and was wondering how well it will fill the cab with decent bass...i'm not looking to vibrate the doors of others around me... I'll be getting an amplified 8".

Sounds like close to the same setup as my old one, I had a single 8" EL8A-HP (100Watt, dual coil) in the back of a 99 blazer, sounded good, wanted just a little more so i put in an addtional 8" 75Watt tube and was perfect. so I could see a 150watt as a great fit.
Good luck

Since I'm installing a tube in the back of an Xterra should I get a 10" instead of an 8" to ensure the cabin gets a good shot of bass. I'm asking this because I'm thinking bigger may be better since I'm not installing the tube in a trunk or behind a truck seat...however, I've heard that the 8" has "cleaner" bass than the 10", what do you think? thanks for the help......

I think you'd be surprised what the 8" tube can do. Sometimes your system will sound louder moving it from a car with a trunk to an SUV or VAN with no barrier.
