I've bought an older/un-used 350 watt / 4 ohm Stryke Audio plate amp. I want to get a 10" driver for a small (1 to 2 cu. ft.) sealed subwoofer for tight/punchy bass for rock music in a medium sized living room (matched to a pair of psb Alpha B1 bookshelves x'd-over at 60 - 80Hz). I'd like to spend NO MORE than $150 on the driver (shipped). What about the Dayton Reference HF 10" for $105 + shipping? Any other recommendations?

Thanks!!!!!!!!! :)

Thanks for the input folks :)
I received the amp today. The spec sheet says it has 6db boost at 30Hz, if that makes a difference.
I can do 12", but I'd like the smallest box possible. CSS has plans on their site for a 16" sealed cube for their SD12. Something like that would be nice :)

Are you going with the Dayton Reference HF 10?
That was my first choice, but I may go with a 12" from Dayton or someone else. What is set in stone is: Stryke amp and sealed box 2 ft. or under (preferably, MUCH under!). I want tight, very musical bass. I'm afraid of getting the 10 and wishing I had gotten the 12 later :(

WOW! This is alot to take in! I do apprecate it greatly though :)
Are you telling me, in theory, the Shiva-X in a 1 cu ft. sealed enclosure (minus the space taken up by the driver), with my amp, would produce a "flat" response, and the bass would be tight and "musical" (not boomy/ one-noted)?
THANKS!!!!!!!

Okay, this has been so difficult! I have a Stryke Audio 350 watt plate amp (at 4 ohms) with a 6 db boost at 30 Hz. The amp will not be mounted in the box. I'm going with a 10", most likely the Dayton RSS265HF-4, since it has so many good reviews and is only $105. (If there is a "better" 10" out there for the same price, please let me know!) The maximum I want the exterior of my sealed box to be is 15" cubed (made from 3/4" MDF). I want tight/articulate/musical bass with as flat a frequency response as possible. I want it to sound as good at 80 Hz as it does at 30 Hz. I don't care about response below 30 Hz or high SPL's.
The question is, minus the space taken up by the driver, should I make the box smaller or leave it at 15" cubed in order to meet my goal?

Specs for the RSS265HF-4:
Power handling: 350 watts RMS/600 watts max * VCdia: 2-1/2" * Le: 1.05 mH * Impedance: 4 ohms * Re: 3.3 ohms * Frequency range: 22 - 1,000 Hz * Fs: 26 Hz * Magnet weight: 100 oz. * SPL: 87 dB 2.83 V/1m, 84 dB 1W/1m * Vas: 1.59 cu. ft. * Qms: 3.26 * Qes: .51 * Qts: .44 * Xmax: 12.3mm * Dimensions: A: 10-1/2", B: 9-1/4", C: 5".

THANKS!!!!!!!!!!!!! :)

Thanks for all your help! Does the boost play any part in the size of the box? In other words, if the speaker is designed for 1 cu ft without boost, wouldn't the boost allow you to make the cabinet smaller with the same output from the speaker?

The boost affects the output and the frequency response. The box size stays the same to maintain a Q of 7.
Yellow - 1 cu.ft with 6 db of boost.
Green - 1 cu.ft. wiyh no boost.

Both models assume a subsonic filter at 18 hz, which could probably be verified by contacting A.E. Speakers. (formerly Stryke)

Wow! I was a little hesitant about the boost, but it looks like a requirement in this application! I'm going to get started on this, this week :)
