Dayton Audio RSS210HF-4 8" Reference HF Subwoofer 4 Ohm
Hi there I want to build full range 3-ways using this woofer, the RS 180-8 as a midrange and the PT2C-8 tweeter with the XO3W-375/3K crossover. I would like a lower in-room frequency response of 25 hz. Is this viable and will the impedance be? Thanks.

Would this be a good replacement for a Sunfire Super Junior sub? The original surrounds on both the woofer and passive are shot and nobody seems to make replacements. Would it work well with the SD215-PR passive radiator? The box only measures .3 cu ft
The best woofer for this application would be either the Dayton RSS210HO-4 or the TC Sounds Epic 8". Unfortunately we do not have a suitable passive radiator for either of these options.

I would like to put 2 of these in a sealed enclosure. I have figured around 2 cf with the 240w P.E. amp. Does anyone see any issues with this? Approximately what would my bottom extension with this set-up be? Thank you.
I would recommend two of the RSS210HO-8 woofers instead. This will yield a 4 ohm load for the amplifier which will provide the full 240 watts. A pair of these will work well in about 0.9 cubic feet sealed and provide in room response into the upper 20's.

Need 2 subs for 7.2 set up - I would like to use sealed boxes for music acuracy and some kind of "low freq bass eq" to get lows for HT use? Space is limited Im in a townhome, need smallest box possible w/eq to get best of both worlds. HELP!
I would recommend the HO version of this woofer in about 0.5 cubic feet per woofer. This will handle more power, more excursion and basically more EQ than the HF. This will be able to get into the mid-20's at medium volume levels.

I would like to know if these can be used in a vertical orientation. That is, with the cone facing up or down.
Yes it can. The only concern is when facing down, be sure there is enough air space below it. As an example, if the Bass box is 12" X 12" X 12"--you should allow 2-5" of space to allow the large low frequencies to "breath". An even better approach is to raise just the front about 5". This gives the woofer a boundary. Kind of like a half horn load. I did this on a large format system to create an earthquake effect. I only had to use 1/2 of the speakers for the same volume level I needed. Play with it and spice to taste.

how deep can this sub play...
my plan is to replace the two RE SX12's in my hatch for two of these 8's to regain a little bit of hatch space. (my enclosure is eating up 1/2 of usable space now.)In their optimal sealed enclosure, how deep can they physically play? i have some songs that go as low as 28HZ and thats where my 12's come alive, but i've been steering away from that genre more and more,but still listen to some on occasion.I'm not expecting these to play as loud as my RE's , but i do want them to be able to handle that frequency if need be.i can deal with the loss in spl. but don't want to sacrifice the quality of sound.so then... largest i can go and still maintain deep bass output and keep the power handling within reason. im looking at the 4Ω versions and will be wiring @ 2ohms. my amp is rated at 900 into 2Ω so i will obviously adjust the gain very very low. if thats too much i could always rewire for an 8Ω load. (i do have another amp if need be, much lower power @2Ω)
In their sealed enclosures these will easily reach 28 Hz in a vehicle application. As you said they will not play as loud at this frequency but they will work well for all types of music.
