It is 40W as per TIS. And hence you keep the gains at minimum on XD 400/4 when using L7 mids.

Are you using XD 400/4 pre-out to phoenix, so XD 400/4 is also converting your differential signals to normal signals?

However after reading Kaigoss reply in one of the threads on the main audio saying he has tried various types of subs/enclosure combination but IB through ski hole preference. This has made me think to experiment down this route
I am not expert but my findings are very similar to Kaigoss and I am speaking from the experience gained by my first IB installation in 1997. My findings are on my thread. You may get some ideas, though follow the sky hatch route.

Re: 8 inch subs in to a sealed box and putting it in front of ski hole...it may work. There is no harm in experimenting it if you already have 2 X 8 inch subs sitting at your place.

However if you plan to buy a sub, I would suggest to go for minimum 12 inch sub and you do not have to spend mega money to do it. A sub in 50 range with correct specs should do the job.
HTHs.
