I was given a Dayton DVC 15 from a friend recently, and I have a 240w plate amp that's not being used. I was thinking about buying the 3 cu ft enclosure from DIY Sound Group for this driver. Would a 240w amp be sufficient for this arrangement? The sub would go in my 10x11x8' office. I'm not looking for earth shattering bass but rather clean bass to help my stereo's 10" woofers with the low end.

that driver in that enclosure with that amp would be just fine.

a little larger ported enclosure could really give you a lot more bass, so it kind of depends how loud and how low you are shooting for.

Listen. It's All Good.

Thanks for the input. I honestly don't need anything below 30hz since music is priority. My mains already play fairly low with the significant gain in my small room. I'd just want a boost in the low end for music. It doesn't need to play low or terribly loud since I get a bit of room gain with the door closed.

The DVC is definitely a capable speaker, let us know how it goes!

I ordered the flat-pack and will assemble later this month after I'm finished painting the kitchen cabinets. I was concerned 240w would under power this sub in a sealed configuration; but since you guys said it's good to go, I'm going forward with the build. I'll report back with pictures once paint goes on the box.
