Dayton Audio RSS265HO-4 10" Reference HO Subwoofer 4 Ohm
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

Tubular Port Size for Dual Shared Enclosure
I am mounting two of these in a shared enclosure and have to use a single port. Charts says .45 cubic feet for the box (which seems odd) but no mention of port size. Any suggestions? Thanks!
0.45 cubic feet is absolutely impossible, couldn't even fit those subs in there if you crushed them.Anyways, may I suggest that you place them in a 2.5 cubic feet enclosure tuned to 33Hz. Dual 3" ports at 11.75" long will achieve this frequency. Hope this helped...

.31 cubic foot sealed enclosure?
The software I used came back with a .31 cubic foot sealed enclosure as "ideal". Can this be right?
No. Something is awry. If you go to Speaker Builder at PE and then woofer selection guide - you can scroll to this woofer... It suggests two applications - one ported and the other sealed... This driver lends itself better to a ported enclosure - if you want decent bass. The F3 for ported is 40hz versus 70 for the sealed. If you want to go sealed - you have to choose a driver with the correct T/S parameters. You can then have critical .5 or .707 Qts with no phase issues at the port frequency.

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.

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?
Your question is tougher than it would seem. It's one of those " theory vs. reality type of things... Here are the issues: The subwoofer you have is about 4 or 5 Db less sensitive than the factory bose subwoofer. Additionally the Bose subwoofer is a 2 ohm driver, and yours is a 4 ohm driver. The result is the factory Bose amplifier "seeing" twice the resistence, thus producing (in theory) half the output it has now. Additionally, the 4-5Db difference between drivers will also produce significantly less output than what is currently in the car. So... If you want to use your sub, because it will physically fit (with minor modification) in the Bose location, I would reccomend having a professional shop install the proper line out converter to the factory Bose amp's Sub output, and then run an external dedicated amp to your new sumboofer.Good luck.

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.
