    DIY Subwoofers - General Discussion
    I am contemplating building a ported box (7-10 cu. ft.) using the Dayton RSS390HF-4 15" driver. Goal is to run from 20hz-300hz so the box can be used with various Oris horns than can go down to 150hz-250hz. I would really like a LF section that could cover the 20hz-300hz range. Anybody have...

  8. Dayton HO 12 vs Ultimax 10 for small sealed HT build?

    DIY Subwoofers - General Discussion
    I'm working on a small home theater and I want to tackle the subs. I've got spouse approval for dual subs if I keep them small, so I'm thinking ~1 cut ft sealed with some DSP. Keeping in mind that for me smaller is better... am I better off with two HO 12's or two Ultimax 10's? I havent settled...
  9. Budget build, What do I need to look for?

    DIY Subwoofers - General Discussion
    Really not sure what I need to be looking for. If I was buying a sub for a vehicle I would not even consider a 15. I have considered CT Sounds Bio car audio subs. These are low end subs but still think they are a big upgrade over a $100-$200 prefab sub box setup. 12" is $25 while the 15" is $60...
