Dayton Audio IB385-8 15" Infinite Baffle Subwoofer
I have an old AudioSource SB15 and the cone is gone. I want to go the IB route in the near future. Would this woofer perform acceptably for the short term in the SB15 enclosure? It is ported but the ports can easily be plugged. Thanks Tim
This will work well enough as long as the ports are sealed up.

I have 2 cabinets for bass and the foam has blown out on the old Pyle woofers :) They are 7.5 cu. ft. sealed enclosures. Is this the best replacement woofer/subwoofer for my application?
This requires a bit more information in order to proceed. Please contact our tech support for more help with this question, firstname.lastname@example.org or 800-338-0531 x1.

Should these be mounted to the rear of the baffle plate (that seems to be what the large, attached gasket would indicate)? If "rear mounted" is there any concern/consideration about flaring or rounding the baffle at these low frequencies? Thanks!
These can be front or rear mounted, it will depend on your specific needs. The baffle does not have to be rounded or flared at these frequencies.

I no longer have these in IB configuration and would like to try one in trunk of my car. It says 19 CF ported enclosure but no port size information. Does anyone have the program that is mentioned or other information that shows the port size?
A ported box is not recommended for this woofer especially in a car, but if you want to use a 19.5 cubic foot enclosure, the port size would need to be 6" in diameter and 9-1/4" long for the recommended tuning frequency.

Can you recommend an amp to power two of these? Also, I'm new to subwoofers. How would I power two from a single amp?
Singe these are 8 ohm each you can easily wire them in parallel for a 4 ohm total load, then use something like our Dayton SPA500 to power them.http://www.parts-express.com/dayton-audio-spa500-500w-subwoofer-plate-amplifier--300-807

What subwoofer is recommended for a more Transmission Line box? This driver or Dayton Audio DVC385-88?
A transmission line for either of these drivers will be very large, but the DVC model will be better suited.
