Dayton Audio ST255-8 10" Series II Woofer
Port Length/size for Dual woofer setup in a 2.7 cu ft box
I am looking at using these as replacments in a vintage dual 10" woofer speaker with a internal volume of 2.7 cu ft.What would be the ideal port length and size for this set up? I would like to get by with one port (stock is 2.5"D x 2.5"L) but I'm thinking 2 would be ideal.Thank you in advance.
There are several different ways you can do this. You can go with 1 5" port 4.68" long or 1 6" port 7.62" long.You can also go with 2 2.5"ports 2.34" long or 2 3" ports 3.81" long.In both cases the larger, longer ports will give you less noise or "huff". All 4 configurations will tune to ~48hz with an f3 of ~46hz. The drop off below tuning is pretty sharp so it might be a good idea to put some protection on them below 40hz or so. Should sound great

Why no frequency response/impedance graphs?
I see you have replaced that pertinent information with user reviews. Reviews are fine but not at the expense of needed specs. Don't tell me that the manufacturer didn't supply them. I get some of this from other sites for the same brands you sell.
The specification sheet for this speaker is located along the right-hand side of the page, under the "Manuals/Resources" heading. I've included a direct link for your convenience:http://www.parts-express.com/pdf/295-110s.pdf

I have read that this is used in the Wicked One by Decaware. Does anyone know the internal volume of the sealed chambers in the Wicked One??
What is the f3 of the Wicked One using these drivers??Can this sealed volume be changed to a vented enclosure by installing a vent in the horn opening at the rear of the sealed enclosure??I would like to try them as a subwoofer cabinet (Wicked One) in a bass guitar rig.
The WO as designed has an f3 of appr. 40hz with these drivers. The sealed chambers are between .8 and 1 cu ft depending on the baffle and how you mount the drivers. I have built about 75 of these myself and worked with a gentleman in Canada who tested at least another 100 configurations and can tell you that porting is a very bad idea. The horn loading side is very short and any disruption will be very detrimental to sound quality.It will work great for your application as is and will provide plenty of output. If you are less interested in total spl and more in musicality build the WO32 design. F3 is 32hz and output is smoother. Any questions you may have feel free to contact me or Bob from the Decware site. I doubt anyone short of possibly Don has more experience with these.

what size port should i use in my cabinet 48''h x 12''w x 18'' deep #outside dimentions made from 3/4 mdf#.
I want to use two 10 inch woofers in each cabinet (not sure which crossover to use but I like the dayton silk dome 1 1/8 inch tweeters. what port size can i use I WANT SUPER AUTHORITUVE BASS. THANKS
This enclosure is about twice the size it needs to be for these woofers, but two 4" diameter ports that are 5" long will tune this to 37 Hz. I would recommend heavy fill in the enclosure.

I NEED TO RE CHOOSE THE WOOFERS PERHAPS
WHAT WOULD BE THE BEST WOOFERS, KEEPING COST IN MIND FOR MY ENCLOSURES FOR MAXIMUM PUNCH? 12W X 48H X 18 DEEP. OUTSIDE DIMENTIONS OF 3/4 MFD. THANKS
Why are you stuck on this enclosure size?WHat type of setup are you using these in?The more information the better.These are great woofers if your looking for high output musical/realistic bass.These woofers remind be of the awesome bass Altec Valencia's have, but a notch up in the clean/transient department-but have the same "soul".If you just looking for "boom" look else where.They really work better in smaller enclosures. This is what really makes them quite unique-as it's hard to find a quality 10" woofer that works up to it's potential in a smallish enclosure, and not loose extension or output.
