Dayton Audio RSS460HO-4 18" Reference HO Subwoofer 4 ohm
Frequency response says 20-500. But the frequency graph & impedance graph show it producing sound well over 1k. Whats the deal with this whole frequency response thing? Why would it not say 20-2k etc.. if the graph shows it reaching that high
They claim 500 Hz because this is where the response becomes non linear. Generally its not a good idea to cross an 18" driver higher than about 800 Hz anyway, but in this case 800 would be about the upper limit of useable response depending on application and crossover slope.

What is the displacement volume of this driver that I can add to my calculations?
This drivers displacement is 0.39 cubic feet when front mounted and 0.45 cubic feet when rear mounted.

OK......I am sold by this driver. May I know whats is the Best net Internal sealed box for this beast Placing into account the driver displacement and how low can I reach in Home theater???? Thanks In advance.
The recommended sealed volume for this woofer is 3 cubic feet net, assuming 0.39 cubic feet of displacement for the woofer. This provides an F3 of 40 Hz and in room response into the low 20's.

How would this work being powered by a 300w BASH amplifier? I know i won't be achieving the subs maximum potential but it's my only way to power it.
The amount of output you will get with the limited power will be determined by the type of enclosure you put it in. Please contact our tech support for more help with this question, firstname.lastname@example.org or 800-338-0531 x1.

I am trying to achieve flat response down to 20hz and maximum output from the sub. If size were no object, what is the BEST enclosure for HT use (but still usable for music). And should I wait for the UM 18?
I would recommend an enclosure that is 8.4 cubic feet total with two 4" diameter, 17" long dual flared ports for a tuning frequency of 21 Hz. This setup will achieve output up to about 120 dB with RMS power.
