Dayton Audio RSS265HF-4 10" Reference HF Subwoofer 4 Ohm
"Choose the high fidelity(HF) version if you are not restricted by cabinet size" What is the minimum size cabinet reccomended? Thanks!
With this one you could go as small as .75 cu ft sealed or 1.25 cuft ported tuned to the low 20's. You run into port length issues at that small of a ported enclosure unless you use passive radiators.

I just purchased two of these ......
and I want to build a sealed box for my jeep grand cherokee, any suggestions on size?
If you want to go sealed in that vehicle, my suggestion is 1.8 cu ft. You can go anywhere between 1.5 and 2.5 but the sound in that vehicle will likely be smoother just under 2 cubic feet. Natural resonance of the jeep is close to 45 hz and that will actually put the roll off close to the resonance which should help flatten the overall response in the jeep. If you want it to boom a little more go up to about 2.25 cubic feet and you will get a little boost.

What are some good ported and sealed box options?
I have the BASH 300s amp and want to make a box for a music/HT room. Flat frequency response that goes deep while keeping higher frequencies tight is imperative. Any sonotube dimensions? Ported? Sealed? Have space but not enough for a 5 ft^3 box. Thanks
I built my box to 2.5L tuned to 22hz. I used at 25.25" x 4" port flared on both ends. The enclosure is about 32" x16" x 12.5" outside dimensions . I used the bash 300. Brought the HPF up to 20.4hz to protect the woofer, by swapping the resistors out. I have it crossed at 100hz, and it sounds awesome. Corner loaded I am getting usable output down in the teens. Higher frequencies sound excellent too. The port is made by Precision Ports.

Does this "2-layer coil for reduced back EMF" mean dual voice ?
This sub is a 4 ohm DVC not a 4 ohm SVC correct?
No this driver has a single voice coil. 2-layer means the wire is wrapped around the voice coil former in two layers. Many subwoofers have 4 or even 8 eight layer coils. The benefit with two layers is that it will reduce distortion/EMF/Le. . . The less windings in the coil the better. What more layers gives you is more Bl so you need less motor which is cheaper to manufacture but increases distortion.

how would this sub sound in a .8 cubic foot sealed box for car audio? how low would it hit with good authority and clarity
That volume is perfect for this woofer. All I can do is model the response, however I show a 10 dB down point in the mid 20's which is a good indicator of how low it will play in reality. With clean power and no EQ applied, this should take a full 350 watts without being over driven.

What is the difference between the "HF" and the "HO" models of this speaker???
The HF version is designed for slightly larger boxes and is what we recommend for home audio applications. The HO is aimed at automotive applications with a smaller box.
