Thanks to our experience with 8” woofers dating back to 2008 the sixth generation E-8 offers levels of performance once reserved for significantly more expensive woofers. This driver is the result of over 10-years of research, testing, and data from prior versions. If you are looking for an 8″ driver to perform incredibly well at lower wattages (200-300 watts) in ported boxes at a great price the E-8 v.6 is exactly what you are looking for and is completely unmatched in its price class.
The E-8 v.6 is built around an upgraded version of the v.4/v.5 motor with superior gap venting. These proven parts are mated up to a strong, high clearance stamped steel frame and competition grade soft parts. The tinsel leads have been upgraded to the same 63-conductor “Mini-XL” units now found on the E-10/12/15 v.3 woofers. All new to the sixth generation E8 is a much more optimized surround to ensure more coil stability and higher cone area. Each part of the driver has been hand selected & tested to give you the ultimate in budget bass reproduction from a tiny ported enclosure. The sixth generation E-8 is far-and-away the best performing E-8 we have ever released.
