  2. RSS390HF-4 modelling problem

    DIY Subwoofers - General Discussion
    I know I am doing something wrong, but I don't know what. I am trying to model with WinISD, but when I change box volume, it isn't doing anything that makes sense. I uploaded the graph. When I change my box volume it simply raises or lowers the peak at 17 Hz. The graph looks fine in a 1...

    DIY Subwoofers - General Discussion
    I've toying around with the Dayton RSS390HF-4 driver in WinISD. Seems like a lot of folks like these in a sealed box, and I'm thinking that might be the easier way for me to go on my first project. If I model it in a 4-5 ft^3 box, it looks good with 300w; anything more and the excursion goes...

    DIY Subwoofers - General Discussion
    ... for frequency repsonse and spl in a 4 cu ft. sealed box (100% fiberglass fill) with a given budget of $160 and not wanting to go larger or ported/PR'd? Wouldn't room gain make it nearly flat to 20Hz? The 4 cu ft. figure is 5.7 cu. ft. minus 20% for the 100% fill and approx. .10 cu ft. for...
  8. Dayton Dayton RSS390HF-4 15"....Too much?

    DIY Subwoofers - General Discussion
    Hello, I am looking to build a good sub to go along with my Tritrix that I just built. I had been looking at cheaper drivers in the 10"-12" catagory (something closer to the Tritrix quality); but everytime I look at driver specs, I keep leaning towards drivers that, on paper, appear to have a...
