Default Re: Choosing 8" tube for 150W RMS, SVC or DVC

I am driving a sound bar with channels 1 & 2.

I can bridge channels 3 & 4 for 150 watts rms @ 4 ohms (minimum) for my sub-woofer.

I am driving the 4x6 dash speakers with my Kenwood HU.

Since I am at the recommended limit of 150w rms for a BT8014 tube, should I choose a BT8028DVC tube wired in parallel (4 ohms) instead?

Thanks for any and all assistance or advice!
Go with the BT8028DVC. The sound output will remain the same, however, if you ever do decide to upgrade your amplifier having the DVC Tube on hand will allow for a smooth transition.
