Dayton Audio RSS460HO-4 18" Reference HO Subwoofer 4 ohm
HT use; What enclosure dimensions & volume (accounting for woofer displacement) do I need to hit 17Hz, and what size and length ports? At a minimum I would use the Dayton 500 amp, 1000 if it is highly recommended.
Internal dimensions of 26"H x 22"W x 28" with two 4" dual flared ports at 24" long each will tune the enclosure to 17 Hz. I would recommend the 1000 watt amplifier for this application in order to get the most out of the woofer and have headroom available.

Where is this driver made? I see the Titanic MK4 are made in USA and proudly display that fact. I don't see anything indicating country of origin on this driver.
This subwoofer driver is made to a high standard of quality in a medium-volume speaker production facility located in Taiwan, which ensures each unit gets a high level of attention to detail during assembly and testing. Reliability and consistency of our Taiwan-sourced drivers have both been excellent. The country of origin is indicated on the product label and is also printed on the product box.

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.
