Dayton Audio RSS265HF-4 10" Reference HF Subwoofer 4 Ohm
But HF specs show 0.53 sealed volume with F3 51 hz. Is this accurate? I have 2 0.61 sealed boxes for 2 10's and I just want the optimal subs. Seems like I would need less power too for the HF? I have a 500x1 2 ohm fosgate, is that enough juice for HO?
The smaller sealed boxes are best suited for the HO subs so that is what I recommend here. The power you have will work well with either option.

I just asked this question, but everyone on the forums say that the HO is the best for small enclosures. But the specs on this website show the HF going lower in a smaller enclosure. Is everyone on the forums misinformed or am I missing something??
The sealed box spec on our website for the HO model is not accurate in terms of an optimally damped volume. This woofer will work well in a volume as small as 0.35 cubic feet and have an F3 of 66 Hz, which is ideal for most automotive applications. The thicker cone on the HO models stand up better to small sealed boxes.

Would 2 of these in a 1cu ft each box with NAD 2400pe amp work? It is rated100w x 2 @ 8 ohms, but states that w/dynamic headroom @ 4 ohms it can peak to 400w/ch. I know NAD is conservative as well. Will be using active x-overs input into LAB inputs.
Yes this setup should work well.

I would like to place a sub woofer in the floor of my new house. I looked at how a sub was placed in between the floor joist and used a rectangular vent cut out in the middle of cone. Would this sub be a good candidate for this kind of application?
Yes this will work for that application although it will work best if mounted into a sealed enclosure below the floor. I would recommend 1 cubic foot for this model.

This sub calls for a 1.68 cu.ft box vented. My question is how how big of a port should I make? What about duel ports? How much +/- 1.68 cu. ft. can I go and still have it sound right? This is for home audio.
I would recommend a total gross volume of 2 cubic feet with a single 3" diameter dual flared port that is 17" long for a tuning frequency of 24 Hz.

I'm planning a 4 way system with a sub for the 30-100 Hz range with active cross over (200W/channel). The cabinet size of sealed 1.2-1.5 seems ideal. Is this the best choice or alternatives?
Yes this will work well, along with most 10" and a few 12" woofers that we offer in that volume.
