Dayton Audio RSS315HO-44 12" Reference HO DVC Subwoofer
Can the two voice coils be put in series for eight ohms rather than parallel as it seems to be advertised?
What's the deepest playing 12 for a .85 cu. F. Truck box? Boss amp 2 ohm mono, eq, is what I have. Real amp power is about 300 watts. I've tried a few old subs but that volume is too restrictive. Old alphasonik did well in 3 cu. F. But junk in.85.options
I noticed that the optimum Sealed Volume is 0.49 ft.³. It is such a small cabinet. Is this net or gross volume? Any recommendations on pre-fab sealed enclosure for this sub? What is the volume of the sub itself?
This volume is net. The woofer displaces 0.135 cubic feet.

I'm looking to run a single 12" for an SQ set up for car audio. My question is how does the HO Ported compare to the UM Sealed? What is the best size box for the HO ported after sub and port displacement and correct port length? UM needs 3cf sealed?
In order to get a relatively flat response the HO will need about 2.5 cubic feet total tuned to 29 Hz and heavy fill. This will be louder when compared to the Ultimax and have a stronger bottom end, but will roll off sooner and not play as low below about 25 Hz. The Ultimax will work in smaller enclosures with good results in a car application, 2 cubic feet will work well.

I installed this speaker in a 2.4 ft^3 net volume cabinet with a 3"x15.5" vent tuned to 21hz. I modeled the speaker with WinISD software for a nearly flat response from 25 to 100hz. Would the 1.3 ft^3 produce a more extended lower end in the real world?
A smaller volume will produce more output above the tuning frequency. The larger cabinet will have a more extended low end in the real world, depending on application of course.
