Default Home theater enclosure guidance

I know it's not car audio related but I know some of you guys are big into home theater setups so could you point me in the right direction for forums or even threads about the best he theater sub enclosures? Me and my father just finished up his 900sq/ft theater room/lounge and wants to put this cheap(ish) HT subwoofer box/amp in there. It sounds great in a small room but I was thinking about doing something with an 18 to get the appropriate sound in such a big room. Thanks guys


I fail. Never knew there was a HT section on this forum. Such a noob. Can a mod move this please?

When I get home I will put something together for you. It will probably be a single 18" design

Consider infinite baffle as an option. Sometimes you can get carried away with 20+sq.ft sub enclosures, and infinite baffle not only saves space but will still be able to annihilate the subsonics.

Dayton Audio RSS460HO-4 18" Reference HO Subwoofer 4 ohm | 295-472
Dayton Audio SPA1000 1000W Subwoofer Plate Amplifier | 300-809
Precision Port 6" Flared Port Tube Kit | 268-354

1.5" mdf lined with this.
Acoustic Foam 1-1/2" x 24" x 18" UL 94 | 260-516




comes out to right around $750 depending on the cost of wood in your area and how you finish it.
In room this will play lower than anything in music and low enough for any movie you may watch.

I can get some CNC cutout and very well built enclosures that are already finished for a good price.

Shoot me a PM if you're interested and we can chat bud.

Korey is a great person to deal with, well at times, j/k korey if someone has an arguement with him. But not to get off track, he did a design for me for a single Dayton Audio 8 plate amp and aeroport in 1 small box. It's not too big or small and just right. I have a small living room so it's perfect. It would even fill up a larger room if it could.

Lemme see if I can dig up his design...



1/2" mdf doubled up on all walls. Took me awhile to build it but works awesome. And here it is done. Still need to paint it. Prob next year. It's way to cold right now to even think about painting it jet black. The 8" sub is Daytons non HO sub. I got the other one, 1st one they came out with.

Any chance this is your Dayton?

Dayton Audio RSS210HF-4 8" Reference HF Subwoofer 4 Ohm | 295-456

I have a bunch of polk audio rt 3000p towers and was considering upgrading all of the subwoofers because a couple were blown.
