About the Kicker SSMB8
Looking for some extra low-end kick? Kicker's SS Series SSMB8 8" midbass speakers will put some serious frosting on your low-frequency cake!
If you're building a 4-way system (with bass, midbass, midrange, and high frequencies amplified separately), install these super-slim (2-5/16" deep) midbass speakers in your vehicle's rear deck to add awesome punch to your rear sub. Or, custom-mount them in your front doors to lock the bass into the front soundstage the kick drum and bass guitar will be in your face!
These rugged speakers feature Tri-Tech cones, formed from sandwiched layers of woven carbon fiber, polypropylene, and foam. These ultra-light cones team up with heavy-duty Santoprene rubber surrounds and low-profile stamped steel baskets for killer performance that'll reinforce the low-frequency output of your entire system.
If you don't have room in your car for a subwoofer/box combo, the SSMB8s have the power handling capability and low-end response to operate as stand-alone free-air subs.

Tri-Tech Woofer Cones: The Tri-Tech woofer cones are constructed of woven carbon-poly, Rohacell foam, and carbon-poly backings, for outstanding power handling and performance. The cones are very light and very strong, providing extended frequency response.
Butyl Rubber Surrounds: The woofers use butyl rubber surrounds. Butyl rubber efficiently absorbs edge reflections that can cause audible distortion, resulting in clearer bass performance. The thickness of each surround varies in a way that provides high linearity and a balanced driver system.
Stamped Steel Baskets: Each woofer features an anti-resonant stamped steel basket.
High-Temp Kapton Voice Coil Formers: Each woofer uses a high-temperature Kapton voice coil former, which is light, durable and very efficient at thermal heat transfer.
Blackened One-Piece Motor Structure: The blackened one-piece motor structure provides enhanced heat transfer for cool operation and maximum power handling.
