    Lightbulb Dayton Audio RSS460HO-4 18" Reference HO Subwoofer

    This fairly new offering from Dayton looks like a fun DIY sub build:

    I always liked the look of the baskets Dayton used....

    Looks like a sweet driver for sure

    I have the 8 inch version, but not quite the same I suppose

    But even that little guy is really punchy and clean and digs surprisingly deep. I bet that 18 inch bad boy is awesome...

    That site has some nice flat packs that I've eyed many times.

    Now THIS has gotten my attention.... How would they dayton and the flat box from DIY sound pair up with a Crown XLS1000? I believe this would be an improvement over my Outlaw, and I've been looking for something to dump my money into this spring! Any comments?

    Sounds like a great idea to me and the Crown a forum member is currently selling is a fantastic deal.

    What do you mean??

    I need to do some more reading on it but I'm really thinking hard. I've got a buddy who used to finish furniture in Charlotte and I think we could make this look really good...

    Please, someone talk me in or out of this option. I'm itching to pull the trigger on the driver, amp and flat pack box offered. I really wonder how this would stack up against my dream sub, JL f113. I've already got the EQ (SMS-1) so, this *seems* to be a great option for me. I can't say that I'm in any way unhappy with my current Outlaw sub.. Well.. You know how it goes...

    Note the seller of the flat pack says the Dayton version is sold out. Of course if you call him things may be different.

    If they're sold out, it's only temporary. Maybe a week to couple of weeks or so.

    As for SI woofers, I believe there's a wait.

    Indeed the flat packs are back in stock now for the 18" Dayton. If I was in the market for a sub this would be my top choice.

    The XLS 1000 Bridged for 4 Ohm would give you 1100 Watts (this is a 1KHz rating) I would recommend the XLS2000. I have the Crown XTI2 4002 to play with for a week and that would be the amp to drive a pair of those 18's. 3200 watts bridged
    So hot it burns twice

    Skip the XLS1000 and go right to the 1500 or 2000.

    The XTI series is perfect for a sub though, it's easy to add any boost/eq. But for a pair of subs, you would want to look bigger than the 1002.
