Dayton Audio RSS315HO-4 12" Reference HO Subwoofer 4 Ohm
I have an original Sunfire Signature powered sub and the driver just started cracking but that is after 10 years of service so I am not disappointed. Would this driver be A good replacement?? My Sunfire Signature true sub box and amp are perfect. THX
Would anything about 100hz be a waste of time for this driver, I was really needing some detailed output to 200hz? I notice some potential phase issue about 100, rise db rise above 100 looks tamable with my REW. Thoughts?
The Reference series 12" subs have been crossed as high as 500 Hz in active 3 way setups, this should be no issue for this driver. The anomaly you are getting could be cause by a room node depending on measurement conditions.

I'm wanting to build a subwoofer with this driver. I use it for 50% movies and 50% music. Should I go with a sealed or ported box? If I were to go with a ported box, would the 1.00ft (300-7085) knock down box work well? And dimensions for the port itself?
This woofer will do very well in a sealed enclosure for these applications. A 1 cubic foot volume will work well sealed or vented, but vented would require a 4" diameter port that is 30" long, so it would probably have to be external.

My aim is to built a subwoofer that produces chest thumping bass. Will this driver works well with two Dayton's 12" passive radiator? If yes, what should my internal box volume be? And what weight is need to have that chest thumping bass for movies? Thank
Chest thumping bass comes from frequencies between 60-100 Hz. I would not recommend using this with the Dayton passives, they do not have enough displacement to handle it. This will give you a punchier sound in a sealed box, so that might be what you are after.

I am considering getting one of these to put in a 1.08 sealed enclosure ( That is about as large as I can go in a single cab truck). Will 500watts at 2ohms suffice for this setup in that box? I am looking for a musically accurate and overall SQ setup.
These will work very well in that volume. 500 watts would also be a perfect amount.

Have a 17000 cubic foot restaurant to provide low end for... Box size not being a concern, what enclosure type and size would provide the best mix of output and sound quality for a wide variety of recorded music?
