Dayton Audio RSS390HF-4 15" Reference HF Subwoofer 4 Ohm
I understand the mounting cutout is slightly different, but could someone tell me if the mounting holes pattern are the same as the Dayton Audio DVC385-88 15" DVC Series Subwoofer? They both have 8 mounting holes so would they line up with each other?
The bolt hole circle on the RS woofer is 368mm or 14.48" and the DVC385 is 369.8mm or 14.56".

I guess I'm having the same difficulty others have had and that is screw size. I tried a # 8 screw ans could not drill down because I was getting metal shavings. Anything less seems way to small. Help!
I would recommend either #10-32 or 1/4"-20 thread screws for this driver. We offer a cast frame driver mounting kit in both sizes.

I want to build a box for 2 of these with a crown dls 1500. I can go wide and tall . I want it sealed. what do you recommend for box detentions.
A pair of these require about 6 cubic feet for the overall volume. I would recommend a box with external dimensions of 45"H x 24"W x 12"D.

How will this driver perform in the 300-7078 sub box kit?
I have purchased 2 ea. of these subs and before I start to build enclosures I wanted to find out if the "Knock-Down MDF 3.0 ft³ Subwoofer Cabinet for Dayton Audio 15" Reference Series HO Subwoofer" should be a suitable cabinet.
This woofer performs very well in this enclosure with an F3 of 36 Hz and F10 of 20 Hz.

Good fit for a sealed 122L (4.63 ft3) down firing enclosure?
I may replace my old (and fried) Adire Audio Tempest 15" sub with this one. I built a 122L (4.63 ft3) sealed enclosure specifically for the Tempest sub with a Q of 0.707. It's also a down firing design. With that said, will this sub do well in this enclosure for music listening and occasional home theater listening?
That volume will work very well with this woofer.

Is this a good match for the Dayton Audio SA1000 amp?
To say the least, I have been very disappointed with my SA1000 sub amp from PE. As others have pointed out, the amp tends to clip very quickly and limits output to the sub at very low volumes. It's disappointing because it doesn't "feel" like a 1000W amp. My previous Dayton Audio 250W plate amp "sounded" louder. My disappointment turned to annoyance when the amp fried one of my voice coils in my Adire Audio Tempest 15" sub. In turn, it's time for a new 4 Ohm sub and this seems like a logical replacement. Can anyone tell me if this would be a good match for the SA1000? I will be using my existing 122L (4.63 ft3) sealed, down firing Q=0.707 enclosure. I will primarily be using it for music, with occasional home theater listening.
Yes this will work fine with that amplifier for either application.
