So the 8xi's can only receive a 2 ohm load from an aftermarket amp? If your planning on not getting an aftermarket amp get the sws-8's?

So the engineer/founder/ceo of earthquake told me he recommends the 8xi's for oem amps/bmw professional and the 8's for an aftermarket amp. Obviously 8xi's can work with some aftermarket amps.

So I blew my passenger side sub and while researching found this. http://www.e90post.com/forums/showthread.php?t=124276 granted mine is an 07 and as it says on earthquakes site, certain models use the 2ohm OR the 4ohm. I know from the pdf in this post that the logic 7 system requires the 4ohm. Which is the SWS 8.
