Overview
The Dayton Audio TS320D-4 12" subwoofer driver is the Mk IV version of the incredibly successful Titanic Series. This USA-made driver features lower inductance than the Mk III version for faster response and a more musical sound.

Highlights
• A stronger motor than the Mk III gives the Mk IV better control
• Lower inductance for faster bass and better integration with other speakers
• Shares the same dimensions as the Titanic Mk III for a true drop-in upgrade

Dayton Audio TS320D-4 12" Titanic Mk IV Subwoofer 4 Ohm
Dayton Audio's Titanic series subwoofers are world-renowned for their ability to create deep, hard-hitting bass with minimum distortion. This line of subwoofers has always been known for prodigious amounts of Xmax, relatively high sensitivity specifications, and an amazing ability to handle power.

Dayton Audio takes everything that has made the Titanic subwoofers stand out as top-of-the-line subwoofers in the loudspeaker industry and improves upon them in the Mk IV generation. The TS320D-4 12" Titanic Mk IV subwoofer has been redesigned from the ground up to improve upon every aspect possible, while maintaining the essence of the Dayton Audio Titanic series.

It All Starts with the Motor
The re-tooled motor focuses even more magnetic flux in the gap, for a lower Qes and Qes. This allows for higher fidelity performance in a similar sized enclosure as the Mk III 12" subwoofer, when more power is applied.

Next, speed-depleting stored energy, in the form of inductance, is reduced through the use of a aluminum shorting ring optimally positioned at the top of the pole piece. A 46% reduction in Le, from the previous generation motor, gives the Mk IV better transient response to react quicker to an input signal, and allows it to blend better into a stereo system for more musicality.

And Everything that Made the Titanic Subwoofers Famous
Dayton Audio's TS320D-4 Titanic Mark IV subwoofer is built with a sturdy aluminum die-cast frame to keep everything perfectly aligned while handling the insane amounts of air pressure it's capable of generating inside of a sealed enclosure. An extended pole piece keeps more of the voice coil in the gap for more motor control.

Frame openings under the spider help to reduce power compression (trapped air) and the vented pole piece keeps the voice coil cool for high power handling. The Kevlar-reinforced paper cone resists deformation under excursion, and the large rubber surround keeps cone travel linear. For a tight seal on the baffle, an integrated rubber gasket is pre-mounted to the frame.

As always, Dayton Audio Titanic Mk IV subwoofers are proudly made in the U.S.A.

That is a super tiny enclosure. I like them so far.

Haven't punched it into winisd yet, but I find that unlikely to be optimal.

There numbers arent bad for stuffing it into a smaller box, but "optimal" is 2.97 ft3 based on the T/S parameters they provided. Their small 1.67 ft3 box can handle 1200 watts.



Black is 2.97 ft3, Qtc .703, blue is their box rec, Qtc .858. Black can only handle half the power of blue at 20hz

This is going to be a great ported box option. 5.5 ft3 tuned to 20hz with a pair of 4" x 27.75" ports, 1000 watt plate amp with 18hz HPF looks like a solid choice

That looks awesome, it's practically as good at the much more expensive TC sounds LMS-R

models quite like the 18" ho, but with 1db less sensitivity in the upper bass.

seems like dayton has an lot of subwoofers that are all pretty close in performance. they could probably prune the line.

what they really need is the 30mm xmax lineup, not more 20's.

Listen. It's All Good.

How does the new 15" Titanic MK4 compare to the UM15? Is the new Titanic mk4 better in a large ported cabinet than the UM15? The reason that I ask is because I currently have 2 of the UM15's in sealed enclosures and was actually getting ready to order a third this afternoon, but I may have to give this 15" Titanic mk4 a try instead! I have been wanting to do my UM15's into some ported enclosures anyway because they just don't have the output that I want in the sealed boxes.

the um15 doesn't have much of a motor on it, so it needs a VERY large ported enclosure,
but it can work.
something like 8-10 cubic feet minimum tuned around 16hz or so.

the new titanic works fine in a more reasonable size enclosure 5 cubic feet tuned around 22hz
or sliding scale down to 10 cubic feet at 15hz. all look just fine.

Listen. It's All Good.

Yeah it is super easy to enter the data yourself.

WinISD Editor:
In general enter brand/model

In parameters I enter T/S data in this order:
Mms,
Cms,
BL,
Le,
Sd,
Xmax,
Pe,
Qms

It will auto calculate the others after entering those, so after Qms just save your file and you should be good to go.

What would be the optimal enclosure size for the new 15" Titanic mk, vented box with a 16hz tune?

8 ft3 with a pair of 4" x 30" ports looks pretty good. "Optimal" I would say is closer to 12 ft3, which would need a pair of 4" x 19" ports.
