Dayton Audio DVC385-88 15" DVC Series Subwoofer
Does anyone recommend a break-in period for this sub ?
All speakers require a break in period, some more than others. A subwoofer like this will settle after 10-20 hours of normal play time.

When you recommend 6.5 c.f. enclosure with 2, 4" x 17" ports are you accounting for the volume used by the subwoofer itself? If not what is the volume occupied by this woofer?
This 6.5 cubic foot cabinet does not take the driver or port displacement displacement into consideration. The port and driver displacement combined would be almost a half a cubic foot. (0.481). On a box this size it has almost no effect at all though. the tuning changes by .5 Hz and the graphs lay directly over each other.

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.

Can this be used in a down firing setup?
