Does sub-woofer size matter?

I was wondering if an "8" subwoofer was enough for a room that is Aproximately "12x12".

Depends on the driver and amplifier power. In short, if you want to make a good subwoofer you either need a big cabinet and/or big driver or a small cabinet/driver and lots of power. Look at the Sunfire subs, they are small but have lots of power. Then look at how much spl and depth SVS or AV123 subs have, and they don't need lots of power but use big drivers/cabinets. It depends on what 8" sub you are talking about.

No kidding..you're moving air.. I have 2 12" subs with 12" passive radiators with 1000 watt amps that will do structural damage.. Are you asking about the size of the enclosure or the driver. The 1000 watt amps are in a 14X14 enclosure. I also have 2 12" town firing subs with 400 watt amps, where the enclosure is much larger and they sound to bad either. I do have the 1000 Watt Subs in the front and the 400 Watt subs in the rear, they kind of fill in the playing field. By the way the 1000 Watt Subs I had made in mirrow image. These babies are no joke..

Pink, you crack me up! (love the screen name, btw) As sages have always said with racecars, boats, and speakers: There is no replacement for displacement.

You must be a Pink Floyd Fan, I just love all this HT stuff, audio has been my hobby for over 40 Years, I know I talk a lot of s...t. I have spend small fortunes on this stuff over years, if it comes down to a new vehicle or a pair of speakers I'll take the speakers, and I realy don't have it like that..
Nothing is ever enough, I am good for a few months but after that it wares off and I won't even listen to my system till I have a newer better component..And the way the market is going I might not ever turn it on again...I guess I am way off base, sorry for that.

Pink floyd fan? who, me?? Nah, I just own every single one of their albums. The first album I ever bought was DSOTM, the second was The Wall, and then I got into "old floyd." If I ever find copies of the movies that Floyd did sound for, I will be in Pink Heaven! I have a Phase Linear 700 amp that doesn't work, but I keep it because Floyd used a big stack of them in their concerts. cheers.
