    Re: 10" Dayton HO build.

    I measured the cu ft of the seal chambers. The sealed area is .785 cu ft
    The QTC of the dayton 10inch HO is .728 in an enclosure sealed of that size so I'm thinking of mounting the subs in reverse (sub motor in the horn area) vs the typical install of this box which is sub mounted on the inside of the sealed area, but that would cut down on the volume of the sealed chamber and hurt the QTC more.
    Of coarse I'm trying to keep the QTC as close to .707 as possible so .73 rounded isn't bad, it gets worse if I mount the sub in the sealed chamber.

    Now this box is a dual bandpass folded horn, which is to say that there is 2 sealed chambers and 2 horns that share a mouth. I'm thinking keeping the sealed area as close to QTC as possible is going to improve my SQ.

    Any thoughts?

    What you are trying to do makes perfect sense and idk why it wouldn't work like that I don't know too much about horns though so I'm no expert.

    I know rite, neither am I, this audio stuff is hard, when you get down to the nitty gritty of it. Sh*ts a science really.

    Re: 10" Dayton HO build.

    Just bought amp and subs, sticking with the 10" Dayton HO DVCs, switching amps though. Saving some money going with the Audio Technix 1200.1 d I know the sundown is probably a better amp, but the AT sure looks nice for the price it's at, I'ma take a small leap of faith really wanted to try their amps anyway. Should be arriving in the next couple weeks, I'll get to work on the enclosure this weekend.

    Re: 10" Dayton HO build.

    nice catch recognizing the size didn't fit in the trunk. many people have realized that only after making the enclosure!



    have you been helped by me? i'd love to know. shoot me a PM.

    don't "tuck and hide". loom, tie, and route everything as neatly as the factory would have.

    Re: 10" Dayton HO build.

    Noted, will be building the box this weekend. Heading to the cities tonight, gonna party with some old friends, then build the enclosure tomorrow. I'm in a rush as I'll only be near my tools for this weekend 2 days, so I'll be just focussing on getting the enclosure built and the subs installed. I'm sure followed by much test driving/listening. Making everything look perdy is gonna have to wait.

    Since I had to work on my 6x9s the other day I might as well toss the picks up in here.

    Before:


    After:



    Some of the best 5$ I spent at menards. After fixing rattle, and cancellation issues with some vinyl close cell midbass came shooting out of everywhere it wasn't before.
