    Dayton RS 12" Sub on Sale at Parts Express

    I've had no experience with this sub, but for $104 I'll bet it's quite good.
    4 ohm, 700 watt RMS, Fs 26Hz, model # RSS315HO-4
    Anybody ever hear this thing?

    The Dayton Reference subs are good stuff.

    Here's a test of the HF (which is also on sale for $104): http://www.diymobileaudio.com/forum/...read.php?t=841

    ah the RS series. if you can afford them, buy them. i've had the pleasure of hearing the HF and HO, and they truly have close to the same output and SQ. GREAT speakers for the price and more than enough for most.

    Looks like most of their sub lines are on sale.....thinking about picking up a pair of the DVC series or IB series 15's.

    Re: Dayton RS 12" Sub on Sale at Parts Express

    Nice review link Squeak.

    Even though the high output version is what they recommend for car audio, I'll go for the 'high fidelity' version. I listen at very moderate levels and would gladly trade some Db's for a bit truer sound.

    Judging by the RS line's success in the past, I figured this wouldn't be a bad piece to gamble on without hearing it first hand. Thanks for the posts, now I'm sure it's not a gamble at all

    Re: Dayton RS 12" Sub on Sale at Parts Express

    Hmm well I tried WinISD and for the HO it gave me 0.7 cubes, and for the HF it gave me 1.9 cubes.

    edit: actaully I just redid it and it gave me 2.4 cubes for the HF;[

    Re: Dayton RS 12" Sub on Sale at Parts Express

    So for a QTC of .707 then a sealed box would need to be roughly .78ft^3? How would you figure ported?
