currently have focal KX33 in a Sealed 1.3cu.ft box. i need to downsize to 10" or 8" to liberate some boot space.

what could get me as close to the SQ of my focal in smaller package?

thanks

Just been on the Phone to Dave at Matrix (very knowledgable guy) and he convinced me away from the SA-8 towards the DLS, my only worry is that i will miss the low note/rumble with the DLS, and that it will give me what I require from Dance/house music but sound empty on R&B.
I thought the SA-8 might be the best for both generes.

What are your views?

A vote here for the SA8! I listen to a very broad range of genres and want both volume and SQ. my pair of SA8s do just fine!
