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

Sub for .65 cu. ft. enclosure - discrepancies?
2008 Ridgeline. Looking at buying the Subthump pre-built enclosure that fits under both rear seat sections. This has a recessed area for the Amp, plus two Sealed Chambers for the Subs. Stated volume: .65 cu. ft. I start looking and love the Reviews here on the Dayton Audio RSS265HO-4. I found the Speaker Selection Wizard feature here and it pops up with this Dayton as one of several options, too. But then the Answers to several questions below the product listing seems to say the Speaker Selection Wizard is wrong. This Dayton is not built for a sealed enclosure and needs 1 cu. ft.? Why the discrepancies?Parameters in the Speaker Selection Wizard used were:Hifi (Home/Car), Sealed Box, 4 Ohm, 10", and put in .65 cu. ft. (since I don't know the exact interior box dimensions).Am I missing something?My results may not fill in from this page, but here it is:http://www.parts-express.com/wizards/SpeakerWizard_Results.cfmItems listed below are what the Speaker Selection Wizard offered. 1 Tang Band item. 2 Daytons.Thanks for any help!
Some drivers will work in either a sealed or vented enclosure - depending on their design. You can see by the specs in the wizard that the Dayton has a lower F3 in a vented box. These are just suggested applications. You can plug the specs into a "Box Calculator" and play with the F3 both sealed and ported to create the response you are looking for. Keep in mind that your car interior is also small and acts like a second half to the cabinet. So be prepared to add sound mat and make sure all the screws and such are tight or the rattling will take away from the quality of the subs sound

Can this driver be used horizontally? Would performance suffer?
it will work the same in any position. although im sure there is some measurable difference it would be nothing you could hear.
