I think it'd be a good idea to ask the guys over at PE about that overexcursion thing. They know about these drivers more than anyone else.

That's a good idea. I need to call them anyway, because I've got two of the Dayton 12" budget subs on order, and I'm pretty sure I'm going to cancel one of them. Unless I get totally fed up with the DIY thing and decide to drop the idea, take my cheap subs, and be happy. We'll see. :p

How can you be happy, knowing that you let a Quatro / DVC slide by you, especially after seeing (based off of simulations) what these guys are capable of? :eek:


I, for one, wouldn't be able to sleep.... :(

Fan noise would be a problem. What else would you recommend?

Mostly because I've about reached the point of subwoofer overload. I can't think about these things for too long or I get overwhelmed. Plus it will be a lot of work. Plus it will cost more than twice as much. And I just saw that Parts Express ended their free shipping deal, which was kind of the straw that broke the camel's back.


However, they also keep delaying the Dayton 12's, so we'll see. I'm still mulling things over. I think I just might need to take a step back.


Haha, just a bit frustrated. :) I'll probably end up building one in the end.

You could do a fan mod on the amp... get some really quiet fans. That would help, but not elminate the noise. Might get it low enough where you wouldn't care. Otherwise I guess look for a different model of amp that doesn't need fans. :p


Wouldn't 675W be way too much for these drivers? Particularly the Quatro... I'm having all sorts of xmax problems in my models at only 240. 675 would be a nightmare.

The review makes it look like a good sub. You're paying more, and you get a smaller driver. On the plus side, you get the convenience of a kit. Only you can make that call.

Thanks guys. I was reading another thread here: http://www.avsforum.com/avs-vb/showt...9&page=2&pp=30


Looks like darin is building a big one.


What do you think of this compared to the parts express route for the same (give or take a few hundred)?

Yes Darin is building a pair of them.

The DS-350 sub kit is extremely accurate and sounds great. Small encloser and capable of putting out some decent spl along with extending below 20Hz when needed. Currently the only DIY Servo Sub kit out their to my knowledge.

If anyone has any interest in reading more on (what others have to say) about the Rythmik DS-350 kit and also see a few very nice enclosers the DIY'ers built to house thier DS-350 kit, you can have a look here.

I don't know what your budget limit is, but you might consider running the Dayton PR's ~{that are designed to be used with the Dayton DVC}~ to help get your cabinet size down. Of course this adds to the cost and may or may not be something your interested in looking into.
