What amp are you running. with the 8's you can run at 1.5ohm or 6ohm and with the 10 you can run at 3ohm. This will make a big difference on the output you will get.
If your amp is only 2ohm stable go with the 10". If the amp can do 1ohm get the 8's. Also the 2 8's give you a little more power handling (1000w compared to 750w).

well according to jl the amp i should use for the 8" is the 250/1
and for the 10" the 500/1 and if i have 2 8" the 500/1 should work fine too and it can go down to 1.5 ohms and it's 500rms regardless of ohms
