Impedance ( Available in Dual 2 and Dual 4 ohm Coils)
The HDS2.108 is your cost efficient 8" woofer designed with familiar SoundQubed reliability and performance. This woofer is a beast at 600W RMS. It features a cast frame, a 2.5" copper coil, direct leads to keep from tinsel slap and easy mounting and back plate venting to cool it in the tightest situations.

The high efficiency starts with a strong 2.5" voice coil with high temperature adhesives and coil wire ensure long term reliable performance that is unheard of at these price points. The HDS2.108's double magnet motor is over-sized to provide high output levels with precision and control. The plates are coated with corrosion resistant epoxy paint which also increases the outflow of heat from the voice coil. The SoundQubed Street Duty 200 subwoofers are the new choice for savvy installers looking to combine high performance systems with a screaming deal

Extremely happy customer
This little 8 inch subwoofer has met and exceeded all my expectations! I have a single one of these on 500w in a transmission line and the output is amazing. It plays a very wide range of frequencies. The response is very flat, plays from 30 Hz all the way up to 80 all day everyday. If you want to see a video of it in action just search Youtube for "8" Sub in Transmission Line Build/FLEX-Soundqubed HDS 208"

Good buy
I'll start off by listing some other 8s I have experience with; sa8 v1.5, sa8v2, skar vvx v1. As for the hds208; Pros- Has no issue handling power. Im running a 3500 at 0.5 on a pair. Set very clean, with headroom. Power handling is very impressive nonetheless. Subs play below tuning better than TS specs would indicate. Fs of 47? Might scare some away, but im tuned at 35 and can play to 28/29hz. Output is very good as well. I do feel that both my sa8 1.5 and v2 were louder however. Still, for the price, the fact that 2 of these are crushing my blazer is impressive. Which brings me to final pro; great value for the money. Cons- not a fan of direct leads. Wish terminals were an option. Also, although they arent sloppy, I did find my Sa8v2s much smoother than these. They also dug down deeper. So sq and linearity is not at the front of the pack, but is still respectable enough. Verdict- A good buy, especially on discount pricing. Will handle plenty of power and sound respectable. Although I feel the sa8 to be a superior driver, the price tag reflects that. These are still a solid driver. Box- 2.0cu @35hz 15^2, Power- AudioLegion 3500 @ 0.5

12 volt tech
I purchased this lil wonder on the labor day sale and for the money, this sub sounds like a larger driver! I''m running a Rockford Fosgate bd 1000w at 2 ohms, and my 8" is seeing about 700 watts. When I say low and loud, these are understatements. My Sierra vibrates all around inside the cab My next system in my truck,I''m getting 3 more and the 3500w amp and more aspirin! !! Great subs for the money! !!!!!!!!!

great 8" woofer. i highly doubt you'll find a better 8" sub for that price. i had to pay shipping due to me living in hawaii and it took a lil while to come in, but overall great sub woofer not disappointed at all in quality would definitely recommend this to you if want a 8" sub or pressed for space.

THESE 8''s ARE AMAZING!!!
I bought 2 of these subs, because a friend insisted I buy Soundqubed. I was really skeptical, because I have never heard of SoundQubed. But I bought a pair anyway along with 2 SQ Amps, Components for the front doors, Coaxial Speakers for the back doors another head unit and amp kits. Took him about a week for all new wiring running through the whole car(2012 Ford Taurus). He built a customized box for the 8''s that didnt take up a lot of my trunk space.. Wrapped the box in black leather vinyl so it would match the black leather interior of the car.. When I got the car back, I was in awe... System Hits Hard, The Door speakers are crystal Clear and I was just amazed on how the sounds came out... SoundQubed, I will be ordering more product for my other vehicles in the future...

Little monster!
I bought 3 of these on the Black Friday sale and thought I''d give them a good beating before writing a review. The 3 are in a 2.25 cubed box tuned at 32hz. They have an awesome SQ sound and they can get LOUD. They''re powered by a Hifonics x1900.1 wired down to 1.33 ohms. My buddy got in the car the other day and said "What do you have? 2 12''s?" I responded with 3 8''s and he just started laughing. Perfect for a Budget build or any build. Very very impressed. Would buy again!

I''m speechless...
Being many years in the audio field, I would''ve never expect something so small to get so loud and low! A friend of mine decided to try out one of them. We tested it in my car and I became amazed in no time and went out and ordered 4! I love these subs so bad and would recommend them to anyone who wants to get loud but not sacrifice much space. I decided to do 4 of these subs instead of the old and ordinary 2 12s just because I wanted to shock people when they find out what I have. They''re being underpowered right now. Probably seeing 200 watts each sub and it has my whole car flexing and setting off alarms from down the block. Don''t underestimate these little suckers!

Amazing!!!
This is one of the best subs I've ever owned. I bought 1 just to see how it sounds and it surprised me it gets loud and it gets down pretty low. I highly recommend this sub for anyone that's trying to get bass in a tight space. Or even if you have a ton of space I would still recommend them. Since my purchase I had 3 friends already ordered a couple of them and they all love it.

Mini Monsters!
I have never used 8''s before. I was a little skeptical and wasn''t quite sure what to expect from these little guys. I have always been fascinated with 8" subs and thought maybe one day I would get one to play with. Well....last week I got an email from Soundqubed that these 8''s would be on sale for Labor Day for $89! The sub looked the part of a bass making beast, just mini. I figured I would order 1 to play with....after a little more thought, I jumped in with both feet and bought 4! I modified my box that I built for my 15". It is approx. 3.48 net and tuned to 36 hz with 62" of port area. I just gave these subs some decent power today, running on my kicker zx2500.1 at 2 ohms. I ordered the dual 4 ohm subs because kickers run at 2 ohm. Of course my subs are wired voice coil in series, all subs in parallel. Let me just say...I own a kicker comp VX 15, a sundown X 12, an NVX vcw 12, kicker comp RT 10, currently these subs are all in my collection. I have owned 2 HDC3 12''s which I used to run off of my (AQ) 2200d. All of these subs are great and adequate in the right enclosure. With that all said, I just gave my buddy a demo, and he has heard all of the previously mentioned subs in my car. He said these 8''s were the best system he had ever heard, which is a great compliment, and I have to agree! So if you read this review, take heart, don''t be skeptical. Theses 8''s are the real deal!!! They are all I hoped to expect, and more. They are louder than anything I have had in my car. Louder than the two HDC 12''s that were on the aq2200. They play loud, low, and clean! Sound quality is great. They have the punch of a sealed box, and the depth and low end that you only get from ported. My whole car flexes like crazy. These subs will NOT disappoint! Thanks SQ for building amazing little 8''s, and thank you for the amazing deal. These subs are hands down the best quality, looks, build quality, and performance, and for the price, they are untouchable! Thanks

These Woofers are the Bidness
Well I bought these woofers for my girlfriends set up after she destroyed 2 DC Audio Level 2 8''s. After I had them installed the first thing I noticed is how much lower they played than the DC''s. In addition they were far louder on the same power. I would recommend these woofers in a heartbeat

Sounds Amazing
Just installed the HDS208 and the thing is amazing. first off the thing looks crazy for an 8, the motor structure that they decided to use looks like it can take a beating. after playing around with it for a day, i can say that i am very impressed in its ability to accurately play music and its ability to reproduce quality sound. In the right box, with the right power (doesn''''t have to be alot) you can make this 8" sub sound terrific. you will be able to sacrifice less space but not sacrifice less bass. highly recommended and i will be installing these in more future builds.

Surprised and satisfied
Damn!!!! Wow!! I bought 3 of this lil monsters and I am satisfy with the purchase no regrets what so ever, this lil monsters are in a ported box and shake my whole damn SUV, went out of town with a family member in two different cars I was following him and was playing my music loud we stop to refuel our cars and he was like fuck bro you shaking my whole fucken car you have a 15? So I showed him he was blown away by the size of sub that we're getting loud and also hitting the low notes perfectly, I recommend this subs to everyone if you want nice deep bass and don't have a lot of space this will get the job done with no problem, I still need to break them in so I know they will sound way better, can't wait to order 6 more for a project I am planning on doing with this lil monsters,

I have run a single hdc3.1 12, I have run 2 dual 1ohm HDC3.1 12s and now I am just running this one little 8 inch sub and it is awesome. I have it in a box that is 2.02cf gross tuned to 36hz and it hits the lows for sure.

HDS208 FTW
I was skeptical when my box builder told me to get these subs, have never heard good things about 8''s. But with the airspace I have under my back seat (1.5cubes) my boy built a custom ported box tuned to 33hz and these beasts well exceeded my expectations for a pair of 8s, no one believes me they are not 12s until they see them. They outperform an L7 12 I had in a box that took up my whole backseat. Definitely the way to go when airspace is a factor. Very impressed with the quality, will be using SQ in all of my vehicles

If your looking for a bad ass 8" woofer, stop now! You''ve found it!
Everything about this 8" sub is bad ass. The build quality is exceptional and for an 8" sub and it has the features you want in a sub. Dual spaced spiders, over-sized spiders, excellent cooling, push terminal that are strong and not flimsy like the Sundown E8v3. I just ordered 3 more to replace my Sundown''s. Soundqubed hit a home run with this one!! You won''t be disappointed!

Mr
By far. And i mean by far this 8" sub is extraordinary. I have it in a 1ft cubic box. Ported of course. Tuned at 34hz. And WOOOOW! It hits hard on the low notes. Thanks to a friend of mine that is very knowledgeable and helped me hooked it up with the right amp. Kicker 600.1. I have it in a 4 door sedan and shakes door panels. Headliner. I'm even going to say that it sounds close to what a 10" kicker solo baric sounds like. Or two round 10" kicker comps. This one 8" sub is a clear bass champ. Highly highly recommend it. I'm actually considering getting two 8". Will never buy kicker or the other brands for subs. Soundqubed FTW.
