They're not a robust sub if that's what you're used to. I've used them in sealed for years so you could say I've become accustomed to their character which is very low distortion and a great definitive response in a very small box although most oversize it unnecessarily IMO. Ported is what many others choose but the port length is much too be dealt with. The best I've had with them is a pair sealed in .7 total with a BP1200.1 behind them. They're just effortless in disappearing into the front. If I could do it all over again, I wouldn't hesitate!

It would be a single 10 in a regular cab in the configuration below. 600 watts to the single sub. Parts express says .44 for an f3 of about 46 hz. So i think id go .6 cubes to bring that down some

This is an example of what im doing. In a regular cab. But sealed. Sub would be about 8" away from the rear wall

You're talking about the HO, correct? Work the specs. I've only used the single coil (4-ohm) version; going bigger accomplishes little as far as extension. It extends well in .35-.4 cubes sealed. Bigger than that leans toward a dryer response since it is already smooth to begin with. Getting the F3 way down isn't necessary since cabin gain is at play.

If you have the room, try ported if you want a low F3. If it's the dual coil, you might need to to run it through a box program. I believe it differs from the single coil.

Yes it would be the d4 ho 10. I dont have any program to run specs. Nor a computer do it on. Nor the abilities because im not a computer guy. Id only be guessing.

Dayton driver specs usually are pretty spot on. You can play around with the nifty mobile app Speaker Box Lite. Just enter the parameters from the PE product page. I use it when I'm away from home and find it easy to use and accurate enough to be valid.

I have that app and i can never get it work work. Ill figure something out. Im just more after how the sound is. As ive never used one. And a guy i get a lot of equipment from uses audio development subs. From using the dayton ho subs. And he said there wasnt much of a difference except for way cheaper

Sorry a bit late with any response. I don't think I could have said it better than Babyboy. They are effortless and smooth in a sealed box and can take a ton of power. They get plenty loud without causing any sort of panel resonance. A nice clean and accurate sound. I don't think a bass head would like these subs. They blend well with the midbass drivers without overpowering them.

There are probably better sound quality subs but not for that price. I also use another sound quality sub. The Scanspeak 30W 12 inch. This sub is slightly better than the Dayton as far as sound quality, but it requires twice the box size and can only handle half the power and is twice the price.

Fwiw, i had the 4ohm HO in a ported enclosure , .70 tuned to low 30’s behind the seat in a Tacoma DC. After reaching out to Bayboy and taking his suggestion of .35 cubes sealed, the ported box went to the trash. I really like sub and would recommend it as well. I went with a three way front using dynaudio drivers from Volvo and the sub blends in beautifully

I have a 12 inch in my sons car in 1.25(iirc) ported and it gets plenty loud and sounds very good. I tried it sealed as well, but they seem to really shine ported.

The Dayton is really clean sounding. The only problem you're going to run into is they don't have great output. If you can make the 12" work, I think that's a good option.
I think i can make the 12 fit.
