So I've spent a little while trying to figure out what a subwoofer motor is and how it affects performance--all I can get on the web is equations and variables. I like math, but I need a verbal explanation before I apply the math. Here is my question: What is the difference, physically, between the Dayton HO and HF subwoofers? What is a motor? Is this the difference? I know the HF requires a bigger box, but goes lower. I assume (dangerous, I know) that this has to do with the suspension stiffness, i.e. the HO is stiffer because it is built for smaller boxes and ostensibly higher pressures. Because of this stiffness it is not as efficient and therefore does not reproduce the lower frequencies as loud. This is total amateur hour, I know. Please help a newbie out!
