Dayton rss390hf

By Fizzlemizzle , January 10, in Home Theater. I bought this subwoofer about two years ago and tried it in my car and it was not a very good fit so i'm going to give it a try in HT. I've tried messing with a few enclosure calculators but it seems the specs don't have all the values for the fields? Anyway, i'm not sure if I should go ported or sealed but I do have an idea of what I would like it to be like.

Click to expand After waiting for months Europe Audio finally got stock.

Two working days later and the second driver has arrived today. I showed the wife what two stacked 4 subs either side of the tv would look like and got "no way! Anyway I love the word compromise as I now must stick to the two subs but the good news is because she said I can't have four she said I am allowed to upgrade something else later in the year! Love you Mrs Hoppaz! Or you could buy 2 SP4 18" drivers, put them in about litres each with a shed load of power and get almost the same amount of output as the 4 x Q's in much smaller more wife friendly cabinets using a linkwitz.

Thats about 9db more output over your daytons at 10hz. Just saying. Last edited by a moderator: Jan 21, Moonfly said:. For the cost of 4 Q drivers, you could buy 2 SP4 drivers, put them in about litres each with a shed load of power and get almost the same amount of output as the 4 x Q's in much smaller more wife friendly cabinets using a linkwitz.

Thats exactly what the SP4 driver is. When I get my AV kit up and running again, there's a good chance I will be using that driver. The Q series were originally designed for car audio and had a overhaul a couple years back so they would work fairly well for HT as well. The SP4 was designed from the ground up to be a monster high tech driver that will work in HT, but they will work in cars as well because HT drivers will work fine in cars etc anyway.

The SP4 driver has a much better upper bass response and remains flat up high where the Q does not. The massive motor is designed to handle lots of power so the driver can be used in small cabinets. Its massive power handling only comes into play when its put into smaller cabs, but the end result of that is huge output. A single KK sub wont come close to the kind of low end output that driver can manage, and lots of xmax simply means the driver remains low distortion.

High xmax doesnt mean a driver wont be musical or have punch, xmax has nothing to do with those elements. Interesting my reference was the q series. Interesting to see there is a new range. My point about xmax was not as intended. The time domain consists of hours, minutes, seconds and milliseconds. Accurate bass is recorded at source but if you exert more control of delivering the millisecond from a sub surely you will be more accurate even if this for goes against box size, amplifier power or xmax in order to work with the laws of physics itself?

Im certainly looking at the fi drivers. You see what often gets massively overlooked with bigger drivers is that they dont need to move as much for any given amount of requirement to shift air.

So while a 12 inch driver might move 6mm to produce 50hz at db, an 18 will only need to move 2mm. No matter what, the bigger driver has the advantage over the same range as the smaller driver. The big advantage comes at lower frequencies where you need to move more air, but as you lower in frequency the requirement of speed from the driver lowers, and the bigger driver doesnt need to move as far, when it does it produces more spl and as a result goes deeper.

Using big high xmax drivers isnt an issue as long as they have a powerful motor to control them. Sealed boxes help control the driver as well, and cone mass in itself doesnt make a subwoofer sloppy.

For any given level of output, spreading the responsibility of output across more drivers will lead to superior performance, so long as the drivers remain within their linear distortion free working range by distortion free, we actually mean within certain levels. Using multiple smaller drivers over one big one is better, but its costs more money and usually ends up with a similar sized cabinet, and using multiple larger drivers means the bigger drivers once again have the advantage at the cost of cabinet size.

The reason to use one big driver is really about getting your required end result for less money. Using a very expensive high end large driver with massive xmax etc is really about getting the advantages of the big driver in a smaller cabinet, but the SP4 can still outperform most drivers you put up against it, including most pairs of 15's, and still do it in a smaller cabinet.

A single driver can output db at 10hz in room with only a 90 litre cabinet. If physics is anything to go by then yes you move more air. I still think that q and everything else aside there falls a line that sits somewhere where real life accuracy occurs, in room.

And why do you think any of those things differ when you use a larger driver that requires less effort for any given amount of output at any frequency.

Whats your implication when you say 'in room' in relation to driver size. The fact is, manufacturers use smaller driver because they result in smaller boxes that sell more easily, and thats about it. If any sub is too much in any system then its simply a case of adjusting it.

Its akin to saying you cant drive a Ferrari at 30mph on a normal road because its just too powerful. Ive put a huge pair of 18's with little monitor audio radius speakers and had no problems at all achieving a nice seamless blend. You can get an end result in a number of ways, you can use smaller subs, and more of them, or bigger subs, but as long as you can set them up correctly, both will achieve the same end result. If your using a pair of KK subs for example, you will be able to shift more or less the same amount of air as you can with one big 18, so then end results can be made identical.

Using smaller subs doesnt change this and using the bigger subs doesnt change this, its all in the setup etc. If a sub is too overbearing, then you simply need to lower the system Q of that sub. That can be more difficult to do with larger subs if your trying to do it naturally using the cabinet, but if you have a good amount of eq at your disposal, and know how to use it, then you can do almost anything you want.

The hf is a different animal. Last edited: Feb 6, Cool Im not sure to go for this or the si ht Also delivery time on the dayton longer than 28 days. Not sure what the other sub you quote is? Robertcharles Active Member. Stereo Integrity HT Subwoofers this and the dayton model very well but this will take about wrms in my box and the dayton w rms, the si has 22mm xmax.

That is crazy money. Now I see why you can only choose certain drivers. Well, maybe you can get lucky on the distributer. I will ask SI if I get a chance. Keep cranking, Robert.

Recommended sealed box size for RSS390HF-4 15"


Can you please explain the height, width, and length of the port? I have changed the height of the port to different numbers but the 3d rendering does not show any changes. I don't understand. When I go to view the parts, none of the dimension change. What part of the port does height and width signify?

Dayton Audio RSS390HF-4 15″ Reference HF Subwoofer 4 Ohm

As with the rest of the Reference Series, the main focus of these subwoofers is ultra-low-distortion. Second, third, and intemodulation distortion are kept extremely low by utilizing three magnetic short-circuit paths within the motor structure. A durable aramid fiber spider and extensive venting throughout provide quiet and uniform excursion. The black anodized cone, rubber surround, and custom basket give this driver a unique, high-end look. Choose the high fidelity version for home systems when you are looking for clean, low bass and are not restricted by cabinet size.

To produce loud, hard hitting, deep bass in large home environments you need to move a lot of air, and the 15" Titanic MKIII will do just that!

    Granted, a useful phrase

    Is this true? It seems to me that something is very different here.

    I'm sorry, but I think you are wrong.
