I have a pair of 8" Cadence Mallets that I have been running in my Ranger for 10 years now. I love them.
People have a hard time believing that they are 8's when they hear it.
Otherwise, I like JL. I had an 8" JL in a Bazooka tube in a VW Beetle years ago. It sounded great.
Sorry for the poor quality. I took it with my phone in the dark garage at work.
