I am not sure if you read through Gorilla83 thread on dual opposed boxes using the Dayton 18 HO's but it is a good thread to read through and should give you some good ideas.

And my Dayton Audio UMM-6 mic will be here tomorrow. cool.gif

Very cool. Am interested in your feedback on it.

What size sealed cab looks optimal for a single 18 on only 500 watts?

With only 500w you want to lean towards the larger cabs to pick up some efficiency down low. I would go for 4cf or more.
But, keep in mind that it takes large changes in enclosure to significantly affect FR. 1/2 a cubic foot is negligible.

It seems like 4 cf is the size people are going with when using around 1k watts per driver. How much larger are you talking to reach a different frequency response with 500 watts?

fish, 6 cu ft looks good with 500w. I don't think I would go larger. Stuffing with poly fill will help some too.

4cu ft. looks good with 700+.

Am in the process of building mine right now. It will be around 4.0 cubic feet.

Exterior dimensions are going to be 20.75" wide, 27" high, and 19" deep. The driver is recessed 0.75". Nearly done but I am thinking I might do some additional bracing.

With only 75 watts to it (half of my emotiva amp) it got pretty loud in my basement. Doesn't soon particularly good running full-range, however.

Those of you who have mounted these, did you use any type of gasket? I have a 1.5" baffle with a .75" recess.

Depends on the mounting surface. If coating with Duratex I'd use a gasket. Mine are mounted directly over a primered base with no gasket and no issues.

Thanks. Reason I ask is it seems like it already has a gasket of sorts on it from the factory

It's already got some high density foam on the back, it's fine if you are mounting it to a relatively smooth surface. smile.gif

I will be using the factory gasket on mine.
