Dayton Audio DCS305-4 12" Classic Subwoofer 4 Ohm
Like Rusticman a year ago, I have a blown speaker in a Paradigm PDR-12. The inside of the cabinet is 1.6 cu. ft., not 2. And it has a big piece of cotton batting, 26x10x1.8 inches. The current speaker is 4 ohms. Does your answer change?
The volume is a little on the small side but it will still work well. I would still recommend sealing up one port to help lower the tune a bit.

Hi PE, I'm currently busy with building a 2.1 Setup for my living room. I'm thinking about using this driver for my subwoofer, however, I prefer a sealed box but I want to tune it to about 30Hz. How big should my enclosure be? And how much filling?
You cannot tune a sealed enclosure. The recommended sealed volume under the product details will provide in room response into the low 30's without a problem. We recommend a half pound of stuffing per cubic foot of volume.

Does this driver come with mounting screws? If yes what size? If no what size do I need? I would like to secure it with hurricane nuts, which ones should I use?
These do not include screws. If you are using hurricane nuts, a #10-32 would work with this driver.

What dimension box would I need for good extension into 20 or 30 Hz range. 2x12 sub with slot port(s). Height of the front mounting board is 17". Would be interested in dimension of a similar 1x12, which would also have a 17" front board.
I would recommend an enclosure that measures 17"H x 32"W x 18"D externally with a single slot port that measures 2"W x 15.5"H and is 14"D. This will tune the enclosure to 32 Hz.

Trying to find box size for a 2x12 sub. Must use these drivers. Goal is pretty punchy bass, and hopefully hz in the 20's or 30's. Must keep box height close to the height of the drivers, so ports would ideally be slots on the ends. Thanks.
A box that measures 13"H x 31"W x 18"D externally with a single slot port that measures 11.5"H x 2"W x 20"L will tune the box to 31 Hz and provide extension into the 20's.

Im planning to build a box with this driver and the SPA250 Dayton Audio plate amp and how do i tune the box using 2 ports (to match the rest of the system) for an F3 in the 30Hz zone??
I would recommend a 3.8 cubic foot enclosure with two 3" dual flared ports that are 17" long each for a tuning frequency of 24 Hz and an F3 of 24 Hz.
