Dayton Audio RSS265HF-4 10" Reference HF Subwoofer 4 Ohm
looking to use this driver with the SPA500 in a home theater room that is 25x 25x8..what is the recommended vented volume used in a room that size? what dia port size should i use?
I would recommend 2.4 cubic feet total with a 3" diameter dual flared port that is 17" long for a tuning frequency of 21 Hz.

I am building a pair of tower speakers to play music in a large 48x48 foot garage. Each speaker will have a sealed bottom chamber with two RSS265HF-4 per side. A crown xls 2000 will run the subs only. What volume do you recommend for a pair of these 10's
A volume of 1-1.5 cubic feet will work well for a pair of these woofers.

I'm interested in this sub for my sealed enclosure project and was wondering if sensitivity would be affected by the size and type of enclosure? I'm trying to achieve a sensitivity of 90dB.
The woofer itself determines the system sensitivity. The enclosure type and size can determine maximum output capability based on power handling and excursion, but the enclosure does not effect sensitivity.

I am looking at the RSS265HF-4. Matt P suggests a passive radiator size enclosure at 1.6 cubic feet. Which PR should I use? The SD270-PR 10"? What mass should be added to tune to this woofer? It's matched to the DVC - is it okay with the Reference?

I would like to use this in a 4th order bandpass vented into the car through the rear deck. Would this sub work well in that alignment? and if so, what would good volumes and port size be for flat response?
This will work reasonably well in a bandpass design. I would recommend a volume of .75 cubic feet for the sealed chamber and .55 for the vented, with a single 3" diameter, 14" long vent. This will provide a passband of 28 to 83 Hz.

I was wondering why the sealed and vented volumes for this subwoofer were smaller than that of the 8" sub in this same series? Is it not that larger sub = more cabinet volume?
The enclosure size is based on T/S parameters, not necessarily speaker size. The numbers on these woofers are both accurate.
