Product Details

Dayton Audio RS722 Speaker Kit w/o Cabinet

Inspired by the DIY Project Showcase's popular "Dr. K's MTM." The RS722 speaker system features two of the most popular Dayton Reference Series drivers: the RS28A-4 1-1/8" Aluminum Dome Tweeter, and a pair of RS180S-8 7" Aluminum Woofers. A carefully tuned crossover design composed of premium capacitors, inductors, and resistors integrates these world-class drivers. The results are simply astounding, with soundstage, presentation, and accuracy rivaling much higher priced off-the-shelf speakers. If you demand a speaker that excels at imaging, dynamic range, and sheer realism, the RS722 system is the clear solution.

Dayton Audio RS722 Speaker Kit w/o Cabinet
Dayton Audio RS722 Speaker Kit w/o Cabinet is rated 5.0 out of 5 by 2.
Rated 5 out of 5 by from Very surprised! :) Very happy!I had an old pair of infinity cabinets about 9" wide and 36" tall so I busted out all the old and built a 1 cf ft. cabinet inside with a shelf and couple supports. Made a new baffle cutting holes with the Jasper Circle Jig Model 200 and wow! Set them up for a friend in his man room and they sounded good right off the bat using an almost 20 yr. old Dennon, nothing special. Next will be some better equipment driving them... anxious for that! Couple weeks, they will be even better. I am planning on building another pair soon and making cabinets from scratch and I expect nothing but WOW! great buy and surprisingly low tones.... Love it!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Excellent value and sound quality!The sound quality of this kit is very comparable to offerings from well respected companies that are at least into the several thousand dollar range. From Mid-bass through the top end these speakers are very articulate, accurate and never in your face. I was actually suprised by the amount of bass produced by this system in the smallish boxes the design called for. I am certain you can get a more low end extension if you designed a little more box, but with my home theater subs filling in the low end, I am quite satisfied. The only negative thing I have had with this kit experience is that one of the low pass crossovers arrived non-functional. The problem was 2-fold. The crossover comes with a fiberboard type back attached to it with rivets which covers all the solder connections. Deciding to see what the problem was, I removed the cover and started troubleshooting. On the 2nd inductor in the circut, there was a cold solder joint. To compound this, it appears that the solder joints are trimmed with some type of wire cutters or something to allow the board backing to be installed. When the cold joint was trimmed, it left that joint electrically open. After finding this, I resoldered all of the joints on all of the boards just to be sure, but that was the only one bad enough to cause an immediate problem and everything is now working great.

Hi Parts What exactly IS the impedance ? It says 4 ohms in one place, and 8 ohms in another ?

Asked by: Mr Ken
This is a 4 ohm system, it uses two 8 ohm woofers in parallel.

is it possible to be able to plug an MP3 in to these speakers and make it able to be plugged into a wall power socket.

Is there any way to change the crossover to keep the same flat frequency response but to reduce the dips in the 3k and 16-17khz area? Or Could this be done by putting the speakers into a different size or configuration box like ported vs sealed?  

Asked by: Jason171717
The crossover that comes in this kit is not really something you can tweak without starting from scratch. The enclosure size/alignment will have no effect on the response as long as the baffle dimensions don't change. The dip in the upper octave is the natural tweeter response, so there is nothing you can do about this. There are plenty of MTM designs around that use these drivers with different crossovers. I would recommend asking around on our Tech Talk forum for other possible options.

Does the kit come with enclosure instructions or are we on our own? If on own, where would I find hints and ideas on how to box them. I have the tools and knowhow on building something like this, but not the layout of the speakers etc.

Asked by: pmaru77
The manual for the kit has the recommended enclosure dimensions as well as baffle layout. The tweeter dimensions are not listed but it is centered horizontally on the baffle and offset 3/4" from vertical

I intend to use this speaker for an in-wall solution. Is it possible despite such a flat box I will have to build? If it is so, are there any blueprint examples? What kind of port is best to use due to the flat box?

What passive, if any, would you recommend for this kit?  if so how many cu ft? Thanks Too bad you do not make a floor standing TL cabinet for this kit. 

Asked by: Louie666
The recommended volume for two of these with a passive radiator is 1.8 cubic feet. Using one Dayton SD270-PR with no weight added, you will have a tuning frequency of 36 Hz and in room response to about 30.
