Dayton Audio TIT280C-4 10" Titanic Mk III Subwoofer 4 Ohm
RMS Power handling
Hello,I`m considering using two of these for a sealed enclosure for a car.Would anyone know if these can handle 500 watts RMS each?I`m planning on using two JL Audio HD900`S.Any info or experience with this question would be very helpful.
I'm sure they could but you can always dial back the gain to get around 400 rms to each one.

what tpy of box should l build for my Dayton 10" Titanic Mk III Subwoofer 4 Ohm
Customers generally use a sealed enclosure of 0.55 cubic feet, which yields a Qtc of 0.707 and an F3 of 53 Hz.For a vented enclosure, I would recommend building the cabinet to 2.25 cubic feet. The vent will be tricky as you will have to use multiple elbows to get it to fit. The vent diameter needs to be 4" in diameter and 44" long. Use the outer flare, three of the 15.75" long tubes (cut 3.25" off of the last tube), and two elbows, and two coupler rings.The tuning frequency of the vented enclosure is 21 Hz, and the F3 is 32 Hz.

Fs : 30 Hz does not tell me much. What is the range of this sub?
The frequency range is 28-400Hz, as indicated in the specification sheet here:http://www.parts-express.com/pdf/295-414s.pdfSpecifications sheets for raw drivers will be to the right-hand side of the page under "Manuals/Resources" when we have them available to us.

Not impressed with performance - is my sealed box too big?
I am using this in the Goldwood 1.5 cf box, originally vented and with a cutout for a 12", I modified the baffle to use this 10" as well as sealing the vent and adding some internal bracing. I'd say accounting for the driver and braces it's about 1.2 since I also cut out the vent shelf that was inside. The walls are lined with fiberglass and inside I used a little less than a pound of acoustastuf. The amp is the 300 watt bash plate.Anyway, it's never sounded that great to me. I know a sealed box isn't going to be as loud or low as a larger ported arrangement, but even for music it sounds like the sub is being overdriven even at low volumes. The only way I can describe it is as a blurry sound. Not boomy, I was able to lessen that with placement, but just extremely inaccurate and not punchy like a sealed 10" should be which is why I'm wondering if it's the box.
There are likely a lot of factors that are affecting the performance of the subwoofer. The enclosure is a little on the small side for this woofer, we generally recommend 2 cubic feet for a sealed design in a home application. Room placement also has a lot to do with how a subwoofer performs. A single subwoofer will create nulls in the room, basically areas where you cannot hear the bass at all. If possible, I would recommend different placement options to see what gives you the best response in your seating position.

Will you re-run the frequency response on this driver any time soon?
Its a bit disappointing to see that one of your most acclaimed drives on this site "Due to testing limitations" cannot be tested below 200Hz. Below that is what a subwoofer is designed for. I cannot judge weather this driver has a relatively linear response compared with similar priced drivers.
If you use the specs (Thiele-Smalle) parameters, you will be able to design and predict the response of this driver in a box. Legal disclaimers are a pain. The line you are referring to is just that. In a 1 cubic foot vented box - you get an F3 of 30hz from this driver. The impedance/phase is a very good indicator of driver performance. Measuring frequency response is subject to many variable.

Displacement of woofer?
What is the displacement for this 10"? Typically subwoofers in this category are anywhere from .08 - .10 ft3 ? Can someone tell me the rating for this one? THANKS!Looking to put this in a vented enclosure in my Toyota.... :-)
The displacement for this driver is 0.095 cubic feet or 2.69 liters
