Description

It will take on average, 2-14 days for a subwoofer to be built and shipped.

**Please understand that this is a refurbished subwoofer.**
Explanation of a refurbished subwoofer: Sub may have scratches, blemishes and not look 100% brand new since we are re-using a working motor and frame (unless a new frame is requested upon purchase), and installing brand new parts inside i.e. cone, coil, spider, triple joint ring, and dust cap. This subwoofer will function just as new and comes with a 30-day guarantee against build defects.

 

INFORMATION BELOW IS TAKEN FROM THE SUNDOWN WEBSITE

The Sundown X-8, along with all other 8s in our line, is a unique driver within its line-up. Contrary to the design of the other X subwoofers the X-8 is more of an SPL oriented subwoofer. The X-8 suspension design (spider & surround) were designed around creating larger peaks for SPL purposes. It is built on our patented 8” subwoofer frame (US Patent D691595) just like the SA-8 v.3 so it shares the same massive mechanical clearances (2.5” p-p allowable).

For the X-8 v.2 we removed the vented spacer ring as we did on the SA-8 v.3 and added the same high-velocity vent-holes around the frame base below the spider. This allowed us to reduce the mounting depth a bit to expand installation options. We also added a series of machined channels down the full height of the pole to increase air based cooling and also to reduce audible air velocity though the motor.

The spider is a unique, progressive roll unit two layers thick. This spider was heavily FEA optimized to do the trick job of allowing large excursion capacity with a 2.5” coil on an eight inch subwoofer. The surround features a geometry very similar to the “SPL” cone options on our large woofers in a bit smaller size to suit the excursion capacity of this woofer. Both parts of the suspension support levels of excursion in excess of the linear limits of the motor & coil design.

While the X-8 is more of an SPL optimized woofer it does feature the highest linear x-max of any 8” in our line at a full 19mm one-way. It also features a very thick magnet ID shorting ring just like the SA-8 v.3 as well so will enjoy the same benefit of lowered inductive distortion. Make no mistake, the X-8 is still a very clean sounding subwoofer.

If the sound of the SA-8 is too smooth for you – meaning you want a more aggressive & punchy sound – then the X-8 is the woofer for you. If you want the highest SPL output from any 8” woofer in our line – then the X-8 is, once again, the woofer for you.
