Dayton Audio SWDC12 Dual 12" Subwoofer Cabinet Gray Vinyl
A year ago, you said "We do not recommend using anything but the RSS315HFA-8 woofer in this cabinet." Presently, do you have any new driver experience/suggestions for this SWDC12 cabinet? Also, could the drivers be arranged in a push-pull configuration?
This cabinet has the 10x10 cutout for the plate amplifier, If I would use these cabs, I would go passive, thus not needing the cutout. Is there a way to purchase this enclosure without the amplifier cutouts?
No, these subwoofer cabinets are only manufactured with the amplifier cutout. However, you can make a cover plate for the amplifier opening that will seal the amplifier hole tightly with a rigid panel, and then drive the subwoofer passively if desired.

I have four TC Sounds Epic 12 subs, &am interested using a pair of these cabinets for a pair of dual-opposed subs. The Epic's overall diameter is 12.6" & the outer drillout in this cabinet is 12.44". what's the best way to mod the cutout for the epics?
You may be able to use a rabbeting bit (with bearing) in your router to enlarge the upper section of the hole, then use a pattern following bit to follow the larger hole cutout and cut away the remaining material from the smaller diameter hole cutout. However, please note that your results will be dependent upon your woodworking skill and the suitability of the tools you are using, and you cannot return a modified product, as the warranty will be voided.

Will this box work with jl audio w1 v2 speakers? I've already got an amp from parts express years back. It's powering 4 jl audio w1 v2 12s now....Just wanting to slim down my home auto some from 4 12s to 2 12s and still keep some of that hard hitting bass
As long as the frames of the subwoofers fit the recess and cutout dimensions for the enclosure online those subs will work very well in this volume. You can expect in room response to reach the upper 20's relatively easily.

I have a question about the grey vinyl on the cabinet: Is it possibly to spray paint the vinyl a different color? Is it possible to veneer over the vinyl? If not, is it possibly to remove the vinyl or order the product without it? Thanks
I would not recommend trying to paint the vinyl, I think your best option would be a peal and stick type laminate over top of the existing veneer.

I would like to use the new Dayton Audio UM12-22 12" in a cabinet like this one. I know this cabinet will not work for a pair of these speakers. Will PE offer a cabinet like this one that is designed for 2 UM12-22 12" drivers in the future?
Unfortunately there are no immediate plans for this type of enclosure with the Ultimax woofers. Since the UM frames are larger than the reference frames, they will not fit this enclosure without modifications.
