Product Details

Dayton Audio SD315-PR 12" Passive Radiator

The new Dayton Audio Passive Radiators are excellent general-purpose passives suitable for replacement or for new construction. A built-in mass disc offers a good starting point for most designs, and a convenient M5 threaded hole (screw included) allows different types of weights to be added if desired. Cosmetically and mechanically, the passives match the Shielded DVC line of subwoofers, with a poly coated paper cone and medium-roll rubber surround for clean excursion and long life. The possibilities with these passives are endless, from floor standing two-ways to small active/passive subwoofer systems.

Dayton Audio SD315-PR 12" Passive Radiator
Dayton Audio SD315-PR 12" Passive Radiator is rated 4.6 out of 5 by 15.
Rated 5 out of 5 by from Works great with my Kenwood speakers!My Kenwood JL955WAV needed replacement radiators. The foam rubber on the old ones was just falling apart. I tried having them repaired, but I found that it would be less costly to replace them. After purchasing them and installing them, I am very satisfied with the results. They gave my Kenwood speakers a whole new life. I would recommend these radiators to anyone.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Excellent sound & value quality!!!These are the "cats meow" in passive radiators,excellent Quality,plus the price can't be beat.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Almost perfect replacement for the Velodyne VA1012I was concerned that a different passive radiator would change the performance and sound of my circa 1990 Velodyne VA1012 but the Dayton looks and may even sound better. I had to drill new mounting holes because the original had 8 and the Dayton has 5. I didn't add any weights.

Rated 2 out of 5 by from Sounds good, but Poor Quality workmanshipI bought this to replace the older model that used a foam surround. After barely a month of use, the cone ripped away from the spider.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Very Good BuyBought a pair of the PR's with a pair of the goldwood 10" heavy duty woofer. Put them in a Pair of Infinity EM-103's that are older than I am and boy do they sound AWSOME!!!!! Thanks

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Passive Radiator FanPaired this passive radiator with the 12 Dayton subwoofer model RSS315HF-4. Used a 3.2 cu. ft. cabinet (which WinISD modeled as best for sealed cabinet Q) but added the passive radiator in a floor-firing, slot-loaded design tuned to be -3db at about 18 Hz. (WinISd models that to achieve similar response from a ported design would require a 4" x 11" port in a 5.8 cu. ft. cabinet - 80% larger!). Completely satisfied with outcome. No extra weight added to passive to keep it light and fast, 1 1/4" thick sides all around, all sides braced, with Dayton 240 watt amp installed. Weighs 118 lbs and lined with 1" Sonic Barrier - very solid, deep, powerful, clean sound. Very impressed. One audiophile friend says 'best bass he has ever heard!'. Passive radiator designs not only eliminate port noise and allow for deeper extension in a smaller cabinet than ported or sealed designs, but also often deliver cleaner bass (when properly done) than ported designs due to quasi-sealed enclosure. Don t let others who don t really understand this design approach deter you from experimenting with passive radiators. They can be an awesome design approach.Nice passive radiator, especially for the cost. Get the more expensive 12" if you need more xmax, such as with movie soundtracks. But this one has been pushed pretty hard and showed no signs of strain. I've run 16 and 20 Hz test tone at over 100 db with no problem. I don't suggest adding weight to passives if you can avoid it, even though you can with this one. It is an easy way to deepen the tuning freq., but I think it dulls the speed and clarity. I first tried it in a 1.6 cu. ft. adding several ounces (I think about 9 or 10) to the passive to give a similar tuning. But it sounded a bit more sluggish and dull compared to achieving the same tuning with a lighter passive (no weight added) and a bigger cabinet.

Dayton Audio SD315-PR 12" Passive Radiator

I have 2 12" subs, going in to my car, I would like to add more bass than Had in my sealed box but want to save as much space as possible. Would one of these give me more boom or two? also how would you recommend mounting them in the box?

Asked by: MattyD
Adding a passive radiator will effectively give you a ported response and the ability to tune the enclosure, unfortunately without knowing the model of the subwoofers and size of the box I cannot say whether this will benefit you or not. These mount like any standard subwoofer driver, position in the enclosure makes no difference.

Can I use two of these passive radiators with two Dayton Audio DVC310-88 i have? Do I think of two offices subwoofer with enough resolution and detail, what would be the volume of each box? What would be the "frequency of reinforcement "of them?

Asked by: anderson1701
Two will work at lover power levels, however anything above 200 watts will cause over excursion. I would also recommend adding 200 grams of weight to each passive and use a volume of 2.9 cubic feet total.

I am thinking of using two of these PRs with either a RSS315HF-4 or a RSS390HO-4 driver. Which driver is more suitable? Also it would be helpful if someone could tell me what the optimal box volume and how much mass must be added to each PR.

Asked by: jon96789
Unfortunately these passive radiators will only work in multiples of four due to the displacement of the Reference woofers. If you were to use four passives with the 12" sub, 200 grams on each will tune the box to 28 Hz.

I'm building a pair of towers using Lou C's Kaverna for the top and I would like to use the Dayton DCS205 side mounted on the bottom. Can I use these 12" radiators in place of a 2" x 10" long port tube in .85 cubic feet? Seperate chamber for the sub?

Asked by: nikkoluvr
This is a question that you need to ask Lou C directly, He can be contacted on our Tech Talk forum.

Would 2 of these keep up with a JL 12w7? I'm looking at a 6 ft/3 enclosure tuned to 18hz. The JL has some stroke to it though!

Asked by: ILIKESPEAKERS
Unfortunately no. The only passive this sub will work with is a pair of the TC Sounds VMP 12" models or larger. In a 6 cubic foot box (for one subwoofer I'm assuming), there is no reason to simply port the box and get the same tuning frequency, saving money on passives. With a 5" diameter port that is 20" long, you will have the same tuning frequency.

Will this work with Peerless 10" XLS?

Also, do I need one or two?
Asked by: heinlein2302
In .75 cubic feet I would recommend one of these passives with 200 grams added to it. This will tune the enclosure to about 28 Hz.
