Dayton Audio RSS265HF-4 10" Reference HF Subwoofer 4 Ohm
Any feedback on sealed -vs- vented enclosure in a Home Theater application? Additionally, vertical floor firing -vs- horizontal room firing? If vertical floor firing, how far off the floor should the sub be situated for optimum performance? Many thanks!
In a home theater application, a vented cabinet will give the most output. I would recommend using these drivers in a forward-firing configuration unless having the drivers visible would be unacceptable to you. In that case, they could be used in a down-firing configuration without problems.

How low and how well will this do for music in a small sealed .7cu ft box with the Dayton SPA 250? Thank you!
This will work well in that volume sealed and reach into the low 30's.

I saw a project on the PE site that used the 12 inch ultmax drop down box and the 12 inch hf woofer for a great sealed setup for music applications. How about doing the same with the 10 inch ultimax sub box @ 1.2 cubic ft with the 10 inch hf 4ohm sealed?
The RSS265HF-4 will work in that enclosure but the recessed cutout will not be quite right. You might consider using the 1.0 cubic foot box for the RSS265HO instead. The cutouts will be perfect and there will be no appreciable difference losing that 0.25 cubic feet of volume.http://www.parts-express.com/knock-down-mdf-10-cu-ft-subwoofer-cabinet-for-dayton-audio-10-reference-series-ho-subwoof--300-7076

Hi, I have a Yamaha CA-1000 amp with NS-300X speakers & would like to extend the bass response best I can with crisp sharp punchy bass (22Hz approx), Would this sub or one of your 12" be better, and what enclosure volume/type & plate amp are best for me?
Thank you for your question!For most, punchy bass occurs in the 80 Hz region. Many people also associate "quick bass" with subwoofers that have low inductance, and low stored energy.This subwoofer would be great if used in a small, sealed enclosure such as this: http://www.parts-express.com/knock-down-mdf-10-cu-ft-subwoofer-cabinet-for-dayton-audio-10-reference-series-ho-subwoof--300-7076 and powered by an amplifier with a built-in equalizer that would allow you to tune it to your room, such as this: http://www.parts-express.com/dayton-audio-spa500-500w-subwoofer-plate-amplifier--300-807.Do be careful with the gain setting of that amplifier, as it has enough power to damage the subwoofer.Another recommendation for you would be to use that amplifier with this: http://www.parts-express.com/dayton-audio-12-ultimax-subwoofer-and-cabinet-package--300-7096.Hope that helps!

I designed a t-line for this sub and want to use a plate amp for it. What sub plate amps would power it and give me a bit of headroom.
Any of our 500 watt plate amplifiers will work well and provide headroom for this woofer. The Dayton is what I generally recommend since it has the flexibility of the parametric EQ.

hello, would this work side mounted using the .73cu ft maple curved mtm cabinet sold on this website....woofer side firing with my other drivers firing forward...or would that be much to much for the box..system will be w/active xover and 4 amps..
That would be too much for the enclosure. It would be very difficult to mount this on the curved side for one thing, but the other drivers will need to be isolated from the subwoofer.
