Dayton Audio RSS265HF-4 10" Reference HF Subwoofer 4 Ohm
I wish to try these in sealed sonotube cabinets; how much extra space should I allow for the internal displacement of the driver's basket, and motor?
This woofer displaces about 0.083 cubic feet.

Help! Opinions needed for music only application for stereo sealed subs and have 400+ watts/channel. My question is which sub to use, the RSS265HF-4 10" or the RSS315HF-4 12"? I am using an electronic cross integrating them with a mtm scan-speak 5'' kit.
Either subwoofer would be a good choice, but I like to err on the side of "too much" rather than "not enough" when it comes to bass, so I recommend the 12" Reference subwoofer. Just make sure to follow the recommended enclosure alignment and you'll be in good shape.

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!
