Dayton Audio 18" Reference Series HO Subwoofer and Cabinet Package

Buy this 4.0 cubic foot knock-down cabinet together with the Dayton Audio RSS490HO-4 18" subwoofer (at regular price) and save half off the original price of the cabinet. That's a savings of $75!

About the Cabinet

This particular cabinet is designed specifically for the Dayton Audio 18" Reference Series High Output subwoofer, but works for any subwoofer with an overall diameter of 18-3/16" or less, and a cutout requirement of 16-3/4" or less. The sealed enclosure design creates a subwoofer system with a Qtc of 0.644 and an f3 of 40 Hz when used with the Dayton Audio RSS460HO-4 and minimal fill. Adding five pounds of Acousta-Stuf will create a critically damped subwoofer system.

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 18" 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 and bracing): 4.0 cubic feet • External dimensions: 20" H x 23" W x 20.75" D • Subwoofer recess: 1/2" • Weight: 62 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.

Dayton Audio 18" Reference Series HO Subwoofer and Cabinet Package

Output compared with Dayton Audio RS1202K

How would the output (SPL at low frequencies) of this package compare with the Dayton Audio RS1202K?
Asked by: Stephen P.
Based on the specifications of the drivers used in each sub, the RS1202K sub and RSS460HO-4/cabinet kit will be evenly matched for output (the dual RSS315HFA-8 config has only 1dB extra sensitivity over the RSS460HO-4), but the 18" driver has a lower Fs and in a typical room will seem to play lower. This is supposing that you use the SPA1000 plate amplifier for the RSS460HO-4/cabinet kit.
