Product Details

Dayton Audio RSS265HF-4 10" Reference HF Subwoofer 4 Ohm

As with the rest of the Reference Series, the main focus of the Dayton Audio RSS265HF 10" subwoofer is ultra-low distortion. Second, third, and intermodulation distortion are kept extremely low by utilizing three short-circuit paths within the motor structure. A durable aramid fiber spider and extensive venting throughout provide quiet and uniform excursion. The black anodized cone, thick rubber surround, and custom basket give this Dayton Audio driver a unique, high-end look. Choose the High Fidelity (HF) version for home systems when you are looking for clean, low bass and are not restricted by speaker cabinet size.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great clarity and outputUsed as a replacement for a home gym application. Huge sound and air movement. Great sub!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Sounds great so far!Bought this driver for my DIY sub project. I wanted to replace the little 6 1/2" Klipsch sub that came with the 5.1 Home theater setup (HD-300). That little sub actually did better than I expected it to do in my large, open living room, but it just could not create any punch or shake anything. I had Chris at PE run a design through their software and he emailed the plans to me. 2.6L ported box tuned to 25Hz. I had to build the cabinet in a down firing configuration due to having three cats roaming the house. The port also fires down. The transformation is just what I was looking for. Nice, tight, punchy with the ability to rumble the room. This driver is very well built. Would consider building another sub and maybe trying the 12" version, but this seems to be plenty of sub for now. Highly recommended!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Small Folded Horn Subwoofer Nails the Need.This project was to add detail and slam to the lower mid-range/upper bass. I already had a large folded horn subwoofer that just blew the socks off the ported enclosure I used before. Using the same driver and plate amp, the improvement was huge going to the folded horn design! The large folded horn sub kicks in at about 40Hz and goes down solid below sonic levels to just shaking the house. It uses a 15 inch driver and a 250 watt plate amp that I only have at half volume. It is not wise to mix sub types, so I wanted to stick with a folded horn design for the above 40Hz to about 95Hz area. That is what this project is about. The end result is a very solid sub that goes down to about 32Hz. It does not shake the house with sub-sonics. It does add excellent detail and punch to the lower mid-range/upper bass. That is precisely what I wanted it to do for me. Drums are in the room sound with slam and detail. The small folded horn sub can not handle the lower notes of a pipe organ. Added to the large folded horn sub, bliss!!! The accuracy and detail are great for this driver. It is a very precise sub driver. I couldn't give it 5 stars as I find there are low frequencies that the driver does not cover that as a sub driver should. Just my opinion. Then again, it could be the enclosure limiting it, but I doubt it. What it does cover, it does well. Accurate and full toned.I used the Yung SD300 300W Class D Subwoofer Amp Module with No Boost to power it. Great coupling.The terminals are spring loaded and make for easy connection. I like them as they are first rate quality. So much better than messing with a flimsy tab. The driver is of quality build all around. 18 pounds of solid build quality. The accuracy of the output is the result of the great build quality. Very well worth the price. The over all size of the Small Folded Horn Subwoofer is 14" H 25" D 24" W. (The Large Folded Horn Sub is 36" H 36" D 25" W.)

Rated 5 out of 5 by from SupersonicWanted two channel bass from one corner to avoid the phase cancellation effects of using two locations for sub placement. Settled on sealed transmission line column , loaded in force cancelling push pull array. Hooked up in series to a 500 watt yung plate amp. No need to bi amp these. They are controlled and tight, the combo rocks and never sounds strained.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Clear, Responsive and Quick BassMy modified Carver AL3s sounded way too boomy in my new listening room. I added some bass traps in the corners of the front wall which helped some, but still too much bass! I had heard the 10" woofers in the AL3s were the weakest components so I decided to replace them with this woofer. WOW, what a difference. The boominess is completely GONE, and the bass is refined, clear, fast, balanced and real. These woofers compliment the AL3 ribbons and I can honestly say this is the best the AL3s have ever sounded. The woofers are priced a little higher than I wanted, but they are definitely work the investment. I plan to listen to these for another 25+ years.

Dayton Audio RSS265HF-4 10" Reference HF Subwoofer 4 Ohm

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.

Asked by: Ron12
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? 

Asked by: swrocket
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?

Asked by: Dubn
The enclosure size is based on T/S parameters, not necessarily speaker size. The numbers on these woofers are both accurate.

I would like to use this sub in a 1 cf box and two 12" dayton passive radiators with a 500 watt dayton amp.  Will this set up perform well from 20-80 hertz and be reliable?

Asked by: Great White
Unfortunately this doesn't model very well. I would recommend keeping that volume sealed and using some boost on the bottom to help a little. Those Dayton PR's do not handle enough weight to tune low enough in that volume.

Would you recommend the SPA500 as an amp for this?  I want to build a 1 cubic foot sealed enclosure for my living room.

Asked by: Eric_B
Yes, the SPA500 will work well.
