Product Details

Knock-Down MDF 4.0 cu. ft. Subwoofer Cabinet for Dayton Audio 18" Reference Series HO Subwoofer

Even the easiest do-it-yourself subwoofer can turn into an arduous project; from uneven cuts, to measuring mistakes. CNC knock-down cabinets make it easy for the beginner to end up with amazing finished results without all of the time and effort necessary to perfect your woodworking skills. This cabinet is designed for speaker builders and designers who don't have access to expensive tools or a woodshop.

This particular cabinet is designed specifically for the Dayton Audio 18" Reference Series High Output subwoofer, but works for any subwoofer with an overall diameter of 18-3/16" or less, and a cutout requirement of 16-3/4" or less. The sealed enclosure design creates a subwoofer system with a Qtc of 0.644 and an f3 of 40 Hz when used with the Dayton Audio RSS460HO-4 and minimal fill. Adding five pounds of Acousta-Stuf will create a critically damped subwoofer system.

During the CNC manufacturing process, rabbets dadoes are cut into the back panel for precise panel alignment. A unique two-piece brace adds superior rigidity without affecting the subwoofer's performance. Both side panels feature 3/4" rabbeted extensions with recesses to perfectly install the first piece of the two-part, double thick baffle. Plate amplifier installation is made easy by following the scribed interior guide with a jig saw and by modifying one of the braces.

The end result is a resonance-free, sealed subwoofer cabinet that is purpose-built to extract the best performance from Dayton Audio's 18" High Output Reference Series subwoofer. All that's left to do is finish it to match your décor or paint it to stand out. When your friends ask about it, you get the pleasure of saying, "I built it myself!"

Specifications: • Panel thickness: 3/4", front baffle is 1-1/2" • Panel material: Medium Density Fiberboard (MDF) • Finished net cabinet volume (subtracting the double thick baffle and bracing): 4.0 cubic feet • External dimensions: 23" H x 20" W x 20.75" D • Subwoofer recess: 1/2" • Weight: 62 lbs. • Made in the U.S.A.

Knock-Down MDF 4.0 cu. ft. Subwoofer Cabinet for Dayton Audio 18" Reference Series HO Subwoofer
Knock-Down MDF 4.0 cu. ft. Subwoofer Cabinet for Dayton Audio 18" Reference Series HO Subwoofer is rated 5.0 out of 5 by 1.
Rated 5 out of 5 by from Spend a little money, save a lot of timeThis enclosure went together flawlessly. I could have built it myself, but it would have taken the better part of a day. The CNC routered parts are nice, and everything is slotted / indexed. Tossing it together, carpeting it, and dropping in my JL 18W6 took about 3 hours with taking my time.As soon as I get the amplifiers wired, I'll drop it in the truck and see what it can do.

I would like to use this cab for pro audio subs , using eminence omega pro 18" subs what would you recommend for porting and fill.. if any

Asked by: Boochie
I would recommend a 6" diameter port that is 12" long for a tuning frequency of 33 Hz in this volume. Fill is not necessarily required for this type of application but you could line the walls with some standard fiberglass insulation.

Few questions: I'd like to use this for PA purposes (using JBL 515XTs right now)... would you suggest this in pairs only? Is this big enough to use with a mount pole and put my JBLs on top safely?

Asked by: D Jay Cee
Yes you could use the MDF subwoofer cabinet for PA use although it is designed for home audio applications. Utilizing one or two subs would depending on the venue size. I would caution using these with long poles for fear of tipping. Shorter pole would have a stronger center of gravity. The weight of the Jbl 515xt is 32.5 and the sub box empty is 61.25 lbs.

I have a Focal 46-KX-4 18" QVC subwoofer that I want to install in this.  What would the port length need to be?  Here are the specs from Focal: http://www.focal.com/en/k2-power/89-46-kx-4-3544055751342.html

Asked by: SkulliWulli
The most practical port for this enclosure and that woofer would be a 6" diameter, 15" long dual flared port. This would tune the box to 32 Hz and probably have to be rear mounted.

I would prefer a ported 18' enclosure.  What would be the easiest way to port this, or do you sell a ported 18 inch enclosure?  

Asked by: Kevings
Unfortunately we do not sell a ported enclosure for an 18. You will have to add a port to one of the sides or the back of the enclosure.
