Dayton Audio C1500K 15" 250 Watt Powered Subwoofer Kit
How to Hook up?
How would I hook this up to a newer style reviver with the single dedicated audio RCA style subwoofer output?
You simply run a single subwoofer cable from the sub pre-out on your receiver to either of the two inputs on the back of the amplifier. Then simply adjust the frequency and gain until it sounds the best to you.

which amp comes with this kit,300-804 or 300-805, or my choice ?
This kit includes the 300-805 The 300-804 cannot be substituted, but you do have the option of ordering everything separately.

Can you put this setup in a vehicle?
Could you have some more in stock before July?
The amplifier is made to operate only on A/C mains power, not automotive 12v power. In concept, you could get around that by running an inverter - but you would need a very beefy inverter to keep up (a "250 watt" inverter would not do it) and that's a sloppy solution, better to use an automotive enclosure and automotive amplifier.

Playing with WinISD the driver included requires an 8cuft enclosure to obtain a .7qtc value. I see someone else mentioned this under this woofers q and a. I see if it were in an enclosure of that size it would not handle the amplifiter properly. My question is. in a 2.5 cuft enclosure the qtc is at 1.04 according to WinISD. does that mean this is a boomy subwoofer. I would like to use it for music over movies. Does it come with additional polyfill and would you suggest adding more to bring the qtc value down or does it sound good as is? If adding polyfill is needed how much and is it included?
The small box is need for this driver to handle a 240 watt amp. It will barely exceed xmax in this setup by around .5 mm with full power. Adding fill and lowering the Q will increase the chances of the driver being over driven. There should not be a boomy quality for this small enclosure, because an 80hz LPF drops the transfer function to 0 and gives and F3 of 39hz.

What's the composition of the woofer & surround?
Also, is the enclosure sealed, or vented? Lastly, what kind of feet come with the kit for the enclosure?My thanks for your answers in advance!:)
Treated paper cone, rubber surround, sealed. The picture shows little rubber feet on the cabinet, not 100% sure about that one.

I just bought this unit. It is only less than a day old. Seems that it does not go that low. Could I be expecting too much from it due to it being a 15 inch but a sealed unit? I will run a few bass sweeps tomorrow but it seems to hit about 30hz or so. My room is larger at 25 x 18 x 8high. I need to get out the spl meter in case I just cannot hear that low. Anyone else care to chime in how low theirs is hitting? How long does the woofer take to break in? I know sealed cannot go as low as ported and im assuming even with a 15 inch driver it doesnt dig that deep.
This has been explained in previous Q&A's for this product. The F3 is 40hz. If you have a large room you will not get much gain down low. You need a ported sub if you want output closer to 20hz for cheap.
