Can someone do a quick WIN ISD work up for this driver... and let me know what kind of performance I could get.... ( i'm still learning to read the graphs). I'd like to couple this with a BASH 300watt amp plate. I am looking to save space. I understand a 10" HT sub is a bit small but I have to give up some boom, my house size and GF are concerns!

Exodus Audio DPL-10

* Fs: 23 Hz
* Re: 6.5 Ohms
* Qms: 4.7
* Qes: .91
* Qts: 0.76
* Mms: 99g
* Cms: 0.47 mm/N
* Vas: 73L
* Sd: 333 cm^2
* Vd: 1.26L
* BL: 10.2
* X-max: 13mm
* Pmax: 300W
* SPL: 81.7 db/1W/1M

ported vs sealed have nearly identical response curves. Also getting the QTC down while keeping the xmax limited proves very difficult. Still if you use a 100 watt amp in a 5 cu ft box you will get an F3 of 24hz which is pretty nice for a sealed box with a 45 dollar sub. Don't go above 100 watts as that's all this driver can take in sub use.

You can use box notes to get your dimensions and cut list.

If you don't want to go big the DPL 10 works pretty well in a 1.5 cuft sealed enclosure fully stuffed with about 100 watts input. A quick Unibox model has it peaking at about 103dbSPL @ 45Hz with an fb of 35Hz and f3 of 28Hz. Should sound decent in room.

I'd be very concerned with the high QTS at that point though. It will be a boomier sub. I think a parametric eq is a must for this sub.

Yes, Qts is a little over 1 with that small an alignment.

okay ... i think i better stick with the Shiva X2 12" because it looks like trying to get a good 10" sub in a smaller box may not work....

Yes that is much better selection for a sub build. As are many other drivers on the market. I believe that driver is intended for speaker use actually.

Actually the DPL-10 in a 1.5cuft sealed enclosure is not all that boomy. Here's the Unibox prediction:

For a HT sub there are better choices.
Oh absolutely! I was simply trying to let the OP know that if money is an object or if he's already obtained the driver how it could be used with decent results. :)

to be honest i just dont understand those graphs yet ! i really just need to find a driver...which i was told that a shiva-x2 in a 100L box with a 17 port would work well (4 inch diameter) coupled with a Bash 300w amp. That should be the plan.... does that sound good? the shiva-x2 is definitely pricey for me but I figure it would cost 800-1000 to get a comparable pre-built sub.

You could look at the CSS SDX10" there are a couple builds on here and it looks to be the 10" sub of choice for DIY. Not to say there aren't other options but it is a very good one.
