This little 8" hammers. SoloBaric is the way to go for vehicles with space problems. This one is going inside my center console in a sealed 0.75' MDF box I built for my 2007 F150. I'll be getting 2 10" SoloBarics for a ported box I'm making for under/behind the rear seats.
Pros: They don't use up space, in fact, require smaller enclosures. They'll take tons of power, RMS and peak

I picked up two of these for a box under the rear seat of my extended cab raptor. As you can see in the photo the box had to be just a hair too big for the seat to latch, but a person can still sit back there if needed. As for the sound. I have these wires to 1 ohm powered by a rockford prime 1200.1. I have them in a sealed box at 1.26 qubic feet. I chose these subs due to my limited space and figured the square 8 might perform a little like a 10. These produce more than enough volume for my taste. The sound of this sub is a little weird. They have a nice clean sound and are fairly smooth but they are not overly accurate. I feel like they struggle to hit the low lows. Could be box design but I think it is particularly the sub. Over all I am happy enough with these for now. But I will upgrade them one day. I picked them up when they were less money now that they are 250 per I would have just got the 8w7 and built a nice ported box. My system is morel maximo front's and these with a audison bit ten d. And I am pretty pleased with the overall performance but like I said I will upgrade sooner or later. If you are looking for loud bass and have to have an 8 these are good. If your goals are more sq I would try something else.
Pros: Built well, look cool. Good volume. Sound pretty good for bass heavy music.
Cons: Not very accurate sounding.

Recently bought a new truck and had to part with a very nicer kicker system consisting of x2 12" subs and about 2500 watts. After speaking with the staff at Crutchfield it came down to the high end JL 8 or the Kicker solo 8. I went with the kicker because I am limited on space and wanted to ensure my box could fit in between the rear seats. I couldn't be happier with the sound quality and nice finished look. I kept the factory Bose system and went with the LC2i line out converter to overide the base cutoff and take the low frequency off the door speakers and wow! Sounds clear at all ranges and rattles the mirrors. From metal to rap I am overly pleased with the outcome.
Pros: Small unit with lots of sound, solid deep lows even for an 8. Very punchy with the ported box.
Cons: Requires some fine tuning to your music preferences, would suggest a customizable line out converter and base knob or remote.
