Dayton Audio RSS265HO-4 10" Reference HO Subwoofer 4 Ohm
Possible IB use?
Using this in a .66cuFt sealed enclosure and it has worked well for over 2 years. Got a 2004 Cadillac CTS-V that has a Bose 10" on the rear deck. How would this woofer do as a replacement for that Bose Sub on the rear deck in an Infinite Baffle configuration?
Generally speaking, the Qts specification is what one looks at to determine a driver's suitability to sealed, ported, or free-air application. A Qts value below 0.40 is generally accepted as being more suited to a ported enclosure, 0.40-0.70 would be better for sealed, and over 0.70 would be better for infinite baffle applications. So technically, this driver wouldn't be the best choice for your infinite baffle situation. That being said, the mathematical equations don't always reflect reality, as mentioned by the prior poster. You could certainly try it, and it may perform quite well for your personal taste.

.31 cubic foot sealed enclosure?
The software I used came back with a .31 cubic foot sealed enclosure as "ideal". Can this be right?
i like a cubic foot for this driver

Does this speaker have a sealing gasket around the frame or would I need to use a seperate foam strip for use in a sealed enclosure?
yes :-) it has a 1/16 thick foam gasket

What is this driver's "effective piston area"? What is this driver's "effective displacement"?
The piston (diaphragm) is 8.11" in diameter. A = pi * r², so 3.14 * (4.055 * 4.055) = 51.631in², which is your effective piston area. The displacement of the driver (the volume of space it occupies within the enclosure) is approximately 0.0851ft³.

sealed box what size ported box how big and port length and diameter...
volume thingy on the right tells the box size bt nothing about port diameter or lenght..also sealed .71 vented .45 usually vented is bigger than sealed? whats up with this one
I just built a 2" squared ported box for 2 10" HO's, total cubic feet before sub displacement is 1.66, so roughly 1.5 after displacement. Cut some .75" MDF with these specs to build the same box I just built, box sounds awesome.Box Bottom 28 x 13BOx Top 28 x 13Box Left 12.25 x 12.5Box Right 11.5 x 12.5Box Back 28 x 12.5Box Front 25.25 x 12.5Port L1 9.5 x 12.5Port L2 18 x 12.5tuned 32.8hz

1cubic foot for this driver is good sealed?
got the 15 in a 1cubic foot box and it is happy... 12 was pounding in the same box pryer to that but died on the job...not sure if ten can handle 1 cubic foot sealed and still sound tight
Yes, this 10" subwoofer should be perfectly fine in a 1.0ft³ sealed alignment. As far as "tightness," that is subject to opinion. However, in a 1.0ft³ enclosure, this sub will remain within its excursion limits at a full 600w, down to about 30Hz or so.
