  1. 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...

    Ported Subwoofer Build Projects
    Been wanting to play with one of these drivers for a while. Especially after designing a box ofr on to go in my buddys garage. Problem has always been that I sorta fell out of HT. I rarely even fire up the projector... Well one of my cars is ready for another round of stereo work and I figured...

  7. Why not Higher Extension from a RSS 315 HO Sub

    DIY Subwoofers - General Discussion
    For some reason I'm getting Higher Freq Extension out of my single (KEF Cube 2 )Sub, ...than one or even both of my (RSS 315 HO-4) Subs ? I thought maybe the 2 RSS's were canceling out at higher freq ,so i compared using just (1) against the Kef in the same Left corner as the Kef , but the Kef...
  8. Questions - Dayton 15" HO Subs

    DIY Subwoofers - General Discussion
    I currently have 2 older 12" GR subs. I have been debating about upgrading to something else. The Dayton 15" HO have caught my attention from some readings. I am looking for something for music/HT 50% each. I would want to go with a dual setup. 1) Would sealed box be best route to go? If so...
  9. Dayton 15 inch HO builds

    Ported Subwoofer Build Projects
    ok guys, I have 2 stacked THT subs in my living room right now. I love them to death (believe me these things have done more structural damage to my walls than I realized ;) ), but they are HUGE, meaning it's difficult to place them anywhere without them sticking out like a sore thumb.... NOW...
  10. Swap Dayton Titanic 15 for Dayton 18 HO?

    Ported Subwoofer Build Projects
    Hi gang-- Some of you may remember my dual-LLT build from about a year ago (see sig). I'm looking at the new Dayton 18 and getting the itch. Request for opinions. Should I consider swapping one of my 15's for a sonosub Dayton 18? Any potential issues with mixing the other titanic and the 18-HO...

  12. Dayton Audio HF or HO

    Ported Subwoofer Build Projects
    Hello, I have pretty much decided on a Dayton Audio 15. The HO requires a small box and when I model it in WinISD, it calls for a 3.25 CUFT box tuned to 25HZ. I have years of car audio experience but the tuning seems high for HT. The HF seems to perform better at the lower frequencies but the...

  14. RSS390 HO Builds

    Ported Subwoofer Build Projects
    I have just finished 1 sub build that is a coffee table sub. I used a RSS390 HO driver in ~ 6.75 cubic feet and a bash 300 amplifier. I have the sub tuned to 20.5 Hz and I am fairly happy with it. However when the sub is in the middle of the room it sounds almost as if all my seating...
  15. HF vs HO - Two Camps

    DIY Subwoofers - General Discussion
    Hello fellas, Another burning question: why is it that most subwoofer drivers tend to fall into one of two camps - high frequency or high output? I'm noticing that one large group has a frequency response that cuts off well below 1khz and another group that goes well beyond. If the whole point...

    Home Audio Subwoofers
    Both products have similar price.... This is why I thought this would be an interesting comparison. Those who have heard/owned both subs (in same room) are welcomed to post their opinion, measurements, advantages/disadvantages.... Thanks!

    Wow what an informative site! I received my SVS 20-39 pc+ yesterday and im ready to begin setting it up properly and from some of the threads I’ve read thus far this would appear to be the place to learn to do it correctly. I’ve been enjoying HT for over 10yrs now but until now I’ve never had...
