The price for this DC300-8 12" speaker, is it for one speaker or a pair?
This item is sold individually, not in pairs.

What is causing the very loud buzzing sound coming form my dc300-8. I have yet to push these speakers very hard. The other one i ordered works well.
Dayton Audio speakers are covered by a 5-year warranty against material and manufacturing defects. If you believe you've received a defective unit, I'd suggest giving us a call at 1-800-338-0531 so we can arrange for a replacement.

Sealed Or Ported??
I'm looking into a replacement woofer for an old ported box, i was told that a low Qts would work well with a ported box, is this correct? If it is, would anyone recommend this driver?
Based on the measured specs of my pair of DC300, the optimal box is about 4cuft tuned to 24.5Hz. That should produce a flat anechoic response to a -3dB point of 25Hz. Use no smaller than a 3" round port, suggest using a flared port and lining walls with acoustic foam.

dimensions screw hole to screw hole?
The dimension from hole to hole around the perimeter of the Dayton Audio DC300-8 are not listed. However the dimension across the diameter (12 oclock to 6 oclock) is 291.5 mm. There are 8 evenly spaced mounting holes.This a standard speaker and performs best between 25hz. and 2.5khz.

Good replacement for a 3 cu. ft tower?
20yr. old home built towers need new 12'' woofers; 3 cu. ft., 3walls 'n bottom lined with acoustic foam. Thinking I can add a port and tune to around 30hz. Does that sound about right?
That sounds like a good plan, there will be no problem tuning that voume to 30 Hz.

can i use this woofer or other woofer, in a diy subwoofer cabinet, and a dayton plate amp ?
Yes there are hundreds of options for this application. This particular woofer is better suited for a 3-way cabinet and not very well suited for subwoofer duty, although we do have a Dayton Classic 12" subwoofer that would work better.
