Dayton Audio RSS210HF-4 - Good to use for a DIY HT Sub?

post #1 of 3
Thread Starter 
I have a Dayton Audio RSS210HF-4 sitting in my garage, at the moment doing little but collecting dust. I had bought it to use in my car, but instead have a 10" sub in there. So I started to wonder the last few days if I can use this sub for a DIY Home Theater sub.

Is it worthwhile to build a cabinet for this sub? I would probably look to pick up about a 300W plate amp, and put it into a ported box. I have used Win ISD in the past, but am somewhat useless at it (probably because I have rarely used it). I already have plenty of wood I can use to build it, just need to decide if it is worthwhile.

Thanks.

i like your callsign. :-)

an 8" driver isn't really what you want for ht bass.

you won't get nearly as much gain as you do in your car, so ht systems tend to employ much larger drivers and more power.

the dayton dvc385 15" drivers are on sale for $99 until monday.

To be honest, I had a feeling this would be the answer. Especially when I started thinking about the size of the room the sub would be in as well, kind of a shame as the sub is literally sitting doing nothing.
