Dayton Audio RS225-8 8" Reference Woofer
Building a subwoofer with this speaker?
I want to build a subwoofer for my covered outdoor patio. I want to build an enclosure for Dayton RS225-8 (or what is a better choice) and basically have this speaker down firing. I am looking to power this built subwoofer with two channels running bridge of my Crown cts8200. Do you think that will work decently?
I SEE PROBLEMS AMP DOES NOT BRIDGE MONO BELOW 100 HZ NOT FOR SUBWOOFER USE!! AND THE 8 YOU HAVE CHOSEN IS NOT A SUB TYPE WOOFER IT HAS FREQUENCY RESPONCE TO 2 K YOU SHOULD USE SUB WOOFER CLASS FOR MAX LOW END BASS AND 4 OHM FOR MAX POWER EFFICIENTLY FROM A SUB TYPE AMP ... AND WHILE I SHATTER YOUR IDEA COMPLETELY !OUTDOOR SOUND PRODUCTION OF BASS IS IN FREE SPACE, NO ROOM REFLECTION WARMTH OR CABINET LOADING IN CAR SUB'S THE OPEN SPACE WILL REQUIRE A 12 , 10, OR LARGER TO PRODUCE THE BASS OF AN 8 IN THE HOUSE... A VENTED CABINET FOR MORE EFFICIENCY AND PUNCH TO THE OUTDOOR PROBLEM CAN HELP!

work with Infinity Reference Two speaker as a replacement of woofer?
The surround of the speaker (driver?) is disintegrating. So I am considering replacing it.Here is some spec of the speaker:Frequency Response: 50Hz - 25kHzCrossover Frequency(ies): 300HzSensitivity: 90dB (1 watt/1 meter)Nominal Impedance: 6 ohmsPower Rating: 15 - 100 wattsWoofer: 8" (20.3cm) IMGTweeter: 1" (2.5cm) PolycellAs far as I can tell, there is no vent hole in the box, so is this "sealed"?Alternatively, should I get a "surround" repair kit and fix what I have?
Unfortunately, we do not have an exhaustive cross-reference as to which of our products is (or is not) suitable for a particular make or model of speaker. You'll need to remove the existing woofer from your cabinet, carefully measure and compare the physical dimensions of this woofer (and the cutout in your cabinet), and also make sure the impedance is a match.The Dayton Audio Reference series is a quality line, and should provide excellent performance in your sealed enclosure if you do choose to go this way. I would suggest replacing both woofers in order to maintain good sonic balance.Repairing your existing woofer would bring the speakers as close to original condition as possible, going on the assumption that the surround is the only part failing. Our selection of surround repair kits can be viewed here:http://www.parts-express.com/cat/speaker-surround-refoam-kits/328You may also contact our Speaker Repair Center for information on having us professionally restore the woofer(s) for you. Give us a call at 1-800-338-0531 if you'd care to discuss the options.I generally recommend repair in the case of vintage speakers when resale value is a concern, or when one is particularly attached to the sound of an existing system. if neither of these conditions apply, replacing the woofers with appropriate modern components is typically perceived as an improvement in overall performance, and will also extend the useful life of the system significantly.

2x8 two way mains.
I have 3 vifa D26tg-35-06 tweeters. I am considering using 2 of these 8" (parallel) in a ported cab @ 4cuft. for 2 mains and a smaller cab for a center. My question comes at what to implement for a crossover? Should I use a stock LW-RXover at 2khz or lower. I am thinking the highest point should be 2k on theses woofs any suggestions or schooling would be much appreciated!
I would have to suggest adding a midrange, or using a different tweeter. You're correct that you don't really want to push this woofer much past 2kHz, and the tweeter you mentioned shouldn't really be crossed lower than about 2.3kHz or so. You could probably cross the D26TGs closer to 2kHz, but you'd want to use a 3rd order or higher crossover.

Vented towers using this driver?
Hi, I would like to run three of these drivers in parallel in a 150L vented enclosure tuned to 30hz. They will be low passed 2nd order at 300Hz. Firstly what would be an ideal/good port setup for this? And second I know these drivers are more aimed towards sealed enclosures, will i experience any problems from running them in a vented enclosure? i would really prefer vented because then i should be able to get performance which does not require a sub.
These speakers should sound good in a ported or sealed enclosure. Depending on the kind of sound you are looking for, you will need about 5 ft^3 of enclosure volume for each cabinet. I am not 100% sure but I ran some numbers and you could use a 3.5" diameter port with around 8" length. This is really going to depend heavily on the building method you use, because you will need deep enclosures to accommodate the ports. This should result in a Resonant frequency of around 30 hz, a 3db down point of around 32 hz and a Qtc rating of .707. If you give me some particulars of the project I could give a better solution.

How good would 2 of these work together in a 3cuft enclosue? What would th e tube size & frequency be?
Internal Cabinet Size is 12x12x36in.I currently have 2 Becker 75w 8in in there now. They sound great but there almost 30yrs old I'm looking to replace them with new drivers.
Two of these should perform admirably in a 3.0ft³ vented enclosure. I'd recommend using two port tubes, 2.5" in diameter, and about 8.5" long each. This would tune your enclosure to about 29Hz, and provide an F3 frequency of 33Hz or so.

I may have gave the wrong internal cabinet dimensions in my previous question.How would 2 of these work in a 2.20cuft cabinet? 10.5x10.5x34.5What size tubes would I need?Thanks
Use a 3" port, 7.4" long to tune the enclosure to 30 hz.The part #268-350 3" flared port would be a great choice for this.
