Product Details

Dayton Audio H10RW 10" Round Waveguide 1" Threaded

A waveguide couples the high frequency driver to the listening space without the harmful distortion artifacts of marginally designed and implemented horn loading. It achieves this through the use of non-traditional geometries and lower expansion rates. The resultant sound has less distortion, with an "open" characteristic not often associated with typical "pinched" or "honky" compression driver/horn combinations. Dayton Audio waveguides reveal all of the articulate, accurate sound reproduction that your HF drivers are capable of delivering, whether the application is live sound, critical studio monitoring, or demanding home audio playback. The Dayton Audio H10RW high frequency waveguide is precision molded from high-performance plastic, and has an industry-standard 1-3/8" x 18 TPI throat for mounting screw-on style drivers. It is designed to exhibit a nominal 75° conical-shaped coverage pattern, and will provide useful acoustical loading down to 1,600 Hz. Dimensions: 10" round x 5" deep.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from cant beat it for 12 buxi read through some of the reviews saying it needed alot of modification to work correctly.. i found the wave guides i order to be perfect.. and fit perfect on the selenium d220ti drivers have them on.. these are incredibly musical compared to peavy 90x60 plastic horns they are replacing..super ultra smooth sounding and musical usage up to 20khz compressed musical .. i would recomend 10 outta 10 over compression horns for short throw high spl listening ..

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Work it for Examplary results!Using it with the Selenium adapter mounting to a B&C DE-10, smoothed the throat transition with modelers clay. Built the back up with 10mm of car body filler to get rid of resonances. Foam plug courtesy of Dr Earl Geddes. Crossing at 1.8khz with a active 24db LR into a Eminence Beta 10" in a sealed 35lt box with 1" roundovers. Needs some active EQ'ing. This combo in a home HiFi totally flattens any tweeter on the market. http://minirig.org.au/2008/11/13/minirig-10-mid-hi gh-with-10-waveguide-and-compression-driver/

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Disappointed finishThe contour of the flare is not totally smooth (like the 12" and 8" I also own), instead, there're 3 vague 'steps' along the flare from throat to mouth. And the throat (like other models in this series) is bigger than 1". So it takes some more works to be excelled. Still good value, though.

Rated 3 out of 5 by from Not quite what I was hoping forI purchased a set of these for testing with a very high end compression driver, and although they might be fine for basic PA service, they really aren't acceptable for hi-fi use.The biggest problem is the rough, uneven and jagged surface right where the threading ends and the horn begins. With a compression driver fully threaded on, you can feel an obvious gap followed by a sharp edge. This makes a huge mess of the response curve, and caused a 5dB bump at 7500Hz, followed by very jagged response above 10kHz.Now, as a saving grace, these are really cheap, and if you were willing to spend some time with some paint and auto body filler, you could probably fix the fitting problem and have a pretty decent horn. If you're only building one pair, it may well be worth it.Overall, this would be fine for non-critical PA use, but it needs some work to be useful in more demanding applications.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from You have to hear it to believe it!I bought a pair of these just to see if there REALLY was a difference between them and a conventional horn. I have built many different 2-way mid/hi cabinets using different variations of horns but NOTHING compares to these horns.There is absolutly no compressed sound associated with these horns at all.They would be excellent for use in studio monitors or high end home audio.I coupled mine to a pair of Selinum D210-ti and loaded them with a 12" mid in a 2-way trapazoid cabinet and I'm quite pleased with the results.These would also be exceptional in small to medium sized churches.

Dayton Audio H10RW 10" Round Waveguide 1" Threaded

could the back be cut out to a 3 to 4 inch hole and then be glued to a  baffel with a 3 and a half inch full range driver in the middle to take advantage of the horn loading, I know this sounds unusual , iv'e seen it done.

Asked by: spunky cat
I see no reason this couldn't be done.

Hello,What are the cutout dimensions for this waveguide ? Thanks !Regards.
Asked by: guyome
This waveguide is 9-7/8" in diameter and will fit a cutout that is 9" in diameter. The lip is 3/16" thick.

I’m using a pair Altec 804a drivers currently crossed over @ 1.5K @ 18 db, attached to Altec 811-b horns.

I’m looking to try these waveguides in place of the 811’s. Would there be any issues using my current X-overs since the waveguides roll off @ 1.6K? Thanks…
Asked by: Chazz
I can't imagine there will be anything harmful or audible with a difference of only 100 Hz. I would say this will work fine for the application.
