Dayton Audio 15" Reference Series HO Subwoofer and Cabinet Package

Buy this 3.0 cubic foot knock-down cabinet together with the Dayton Audio RSS390HO-4 15" subwoofer and save half off the original price of the cabinet. That's a savings of over $60!

About the Cabinet

This particular cabinet is designed specifically for the Dayton Audio 15" Reference Series High Output subwoofer, but works for any subwoofer with an overall diameter of 15-3/8" or less, and a cutout requirement of 14-1/16" or less. The sealed enclosure design creates a critically damped subwoofer system when used with the Dayton Audio RSS390HO-4.

During the CNC manufacturing process, rabbets dadoes are cut into the back panel for precise panel alignment. A unique two-piece brace adds superior rigidity without affecting the subwoofer's performance. Both side panels feature 3/4" rabbeted extensions with recesses to perfectly install the first piece of the two-part, double thick baffle. Plate amplifier installation is made easy by following the scribed interior guide with a jig saw and by modifying one of the braces.

The end result is a resonance-free, sealed subwoofer cabinet that is purpose-built to extract the best performance from Dayton Audio's 15" High Output Reference Series subwoofer. All that's left to do is finish it to match your décor or paint it to stand out. When your friends ask about it, you get the pleasure of saying, "I built it myself!"

Specifications: • Panel thickness: 3/4", front baffle is 1-1/2" • Panel material: Medium Density Fiberboard (MDF) • Finished net cabinet volume (subtracting the double thick baffle, bracing, and woofer volume): 3.0 cubic feet • External dimensions: 19.25" H x 19.25" W x 20" D • Subwoofer recess: 7/16" • Weight: 52 lbs. • Made in the U.S.A.

About the Subwoofer

The Dayton Audio Reference Series subwoofers take the quality and performance of the much acclaimed RS line into the subwoofer realm. As with the rest of the Reference Series, the main focus of these subwoofers is ultra-low-distortion. Second, third, and intemodulation distortion are kept extremely low by utilizing three short-circuit paths within the motor structure.

A durable aramid fiber spider and extensive venting throughout provide quiet and uniform excursion. The black anodized cone, rubber surround, and custom basket give this driver a unique, high-end look. Choose the high output version for automotive applications or for equalized high-power home subwoofer speaker systems.

Dayton Audio 15" Reference Series HO Subwoofer and Cabinet Package
Dayton Audio 15" Reference Series HO Subwoofer and Cabinet Package is rated 5.0 out of 5 by 2.
Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great sub and cabinetI bought this kit and added the Yung 500 with boost. The assembly was easy the fit is great. Get lots of clamps. Take your time and pay close attention to the panel alignment, this will reduce sanding time. I finished the cabinet with a 123 primer and gloss black paint. It's not show quality but looks good. ( my lack of wood working skills). Sound let's say I was less than impressed at first it was shaking the house but in my listening position was lacking. After working on placement this thing came to life. I love bass this sub is almost to much. ( no not really) . Overall very impressive setup. I recommend it highly! I might purchase a second if 1 is good 2 will be great. If your not impressed just move it around the room. This sub fills my 23x27 basement theater well.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from DIY Subwoofer made easy...If you need a new HT subwoofer, this is the way to go.Knock Down Cabinet: The enclosure was shipped well packed and ready for assembly. The assembly was a breeze, and everything went together with no problems. All you need for assembly is some wood glue, and wood clamps.(you can never have too many wood clamps.)Subwoofer: The subwoofer was double boxed for shipping and arrived in perfect condition. The build quality for a 15" sub in this price range is amazing.Performance: All I can say is wow! This sub sounds amazing. When I was trying to decide on a subwoofer, I was worried that the trade-off for either ported or sealed would be too much to make me happy. I have a very large great room (18'x37') that is open into a large kitchen. I knew I would need some really good output to fill this space. But I do not only watch movies, I also enjoy listening to music.I paired this combo with the Yung SD500-6 plate amplifier with the hopes that the Yung amp's boost would help with the low end when watching movies. I was not disappointed. During movies this thing reaches really low and can fill my large room with amazing effects. I am extremely impressed with how low and loud this sealed subwoofer can get. I do not feel like I am missing anything by not going with a ported enclosure.For music this thing is amazing. The bass is so sharp and clean, and does not suffer from "boominess" or overhang. This sub replaced a Definitive Technology powered 10" sub. Somewhat obviously, this sub has more output, but I was pleasantly surprised at how accurate this subwoofer is. When comparing it to my old DT sub, it sounds just as clean and precise when listening to music.My total for my new HT subwoofer was ~$500, and IMO you would have to spend well over $1000 to get comparable results with most other HT Sub manufacturers.

Dayton Audio 15" Reference Series HO Subwoofer and Cabinet Package

I am planning on purchasing (2) which Behringer iNuke 3000 DSP or 6000 DSP, what is the driver mounting hardware part number, number for acoustic fill, and will I need feet, these will be on a hardwood floor?

Asked by: Dertitan2
I would recommend the cast frame mounting kit below:http://www.parts-express.com/cast-frame-1-4-20-speaker-mounting-kit--260-778And two 1 pound bags of the Acousta-Stuf:http://www.parts-express.com/acousta-stuf-polyfill-speaker-cabinet-sound-damping-material-1-lb-bag--260-317Feet are optional, especially on a hardwood floor. I usually recommend small rubber feet or pads in this application.

2 questions, first how we'll will this unit perform with the Yung 500w with boost perform? Second how much poly fill should be used with this kit sealed?  I am a bass junky but I like sealed cabinets they seem to be more crisp. 

Asked by: KrazyK
This kit will perform very well with 500 watts, even without the boost feature. You can expect in room response into the low 20's without, and probably high teens with a boost. You will have to be careful of excursion at high volume levels if you use a boosted amplifier.

Two questions: 1. Can the HO driver be swapped with a HF driver? 2. What are the best plate amps to go with this? Do we need to cut out for the plate amps ourself? Thanks.

Asked by: SubW
Unfortunately we cannot substitute drivers in these kits. The recommended amplifier is the Dayton 1000 watt version, and you will have to cut a hole in the cabinet in order for it to fit.

Ported Or Sealed?

I see this package is offered w/a sealed enclousure. However most reviews for this sub mention a ported box with very low bottom end. I need a sub that will play low (HT use) and also be tight and accurate for music use. Also is it posible to add a plate amp? The internal bracing seems as though it would make it very difficult. If building a custom enclosure is recomended which is best ported or sealed?
Asked by: NCaudio2
This box is 3 cu. ft. so it can be vented for more low lows. [see PE's pages on building loudspeakers]. Yes, you can add a plate amp--some cutting required. A cabinet that is vented, has less back pressure compression, so the internal bracing can be modified to allow the extra room needed. This box is really strong. Unless you are skilled with a saw, [I'm not] you would be better off with this or another kit to get you started.

Can this cabinet be bought with the HF sub or would I just have to buy them seperate? Also can it configured for down firing?

Asked by: MarkB572
This kit has a reduced price when bought as a package. PE can do this because of reduced labor & packaging cost when purchased as a set. This is a really good setup though--heavy magnet for high efficiency and useable response down to 21cycles (a long voice coil). Also the woofer and cabinet work well together. A different woofer may have some better specs, but may not sound as good.

Which amp would be preferred?

I am going to build 2 of these and I just picked up a Behringer 1124 used. I am looking at the Crown XLS and the BehringerINUKE 1000. Whis is preferred? And should I be looking at the XLS200 and INUKE3000?
Asked by: DougM57
You will have plenty of power with a Behringer amp 1000. Especially at 4ohms. These speakers will take lots of power, but "more is not always better". Even though you can put twice the power into these speakers--they may not sound the same at the top end of their rated power---This is true of all speakers. Power handling can be rated several ways. If you want great bass {clean sub bass} use a bit less power for years of service. If you want 3db more headroom--double the amplification.
