Dayton Audio DVC385-88 15" DVC Series Subwoofer
Which amplifier would you recommend to drive 4 of these with? Enclosing 2 or 4 of them into one or two boxes (6 or 12 cf), or using 4 of your cabinet packages. Would I be able to hook 4 of these up to one inuke3000? Two in parallel per channel?
The NU3000 will power 4 of these with two wired in parallel on each channel.

Hello, using this driver with a 6.1 cubic foot enclosure and an air port 6 "x 15cm, what type and how will sound would I get? By how much would the frequency of tuning the air port? Using a Sony Ta n80-like power.
With than volume and port, you can expect a tuning frequency of 33 Hz with a bump in the response. I would recommend lengthening the port to 20-24" if possible for a tuning frequency closer to 20 Hz.

I need a design that uses a box of 6.1 ft ³ with this driver. Would recommend using an air port with 6" w x15cm length? Wanted to listen to music and movies, with fast transients and detailed, perhaps with the port tuned @ 35Hz.
I would not recommend tuning this driver that high. For fast transients you would be better off with about 2.5 cubic feet sealed which will still easily reach 35 Hz in room. A box that large will only work with a low tuning frequency, somewhere around 20 Hz.

so im building a box for this sub starting tomorrow. it will be stricly for home theatre (keep this in mind) im gonna go ported, and i would like to know the perfect tuning, and box size. i was thinking maybe 4 cubes tuned to 22hz. is this correct?
In order to tune this to 22 Hz and not have port noise problems, you will need two 4" diameter ports that are 30" long each. I would recommend 6.5 cubic feet with two 4" diameter, 17" long ports for the same tuning frequency.

i want to build and enclosure for this woofer for my father. i want low end bass strictly for movies. im leaning more towards a sealed enclosure. and ill be using the bash 300 plate amp. plz use bassbox or winsid to help! what is my optimum box size? ty
The recommended sealed enclosure for this woofer is 2.2 cubic feet total with about a pound of stuffing in the box. This will provide an F3 of about 40 Hz and in room response into the low 20's.
