Dayton Audios 10" RSS265HO-44 High Output Reference Series subwoofer is purpose-built for moving lots of air, extreme power handling, extremely low distortion... and it does it all with an extremely small enclosure requirement! The minimum airspace optimization of this driver makes it perfect for car audio automotive applications and limited space home audio applications.

To minimize distortion, three copper short-circuit paths are built into the motor. This reduces second, third, and intermodulation distortion to levels only attained previously by expensive, exotic subwoofers. A side benefit is reduced energy storage and inductance, making the RSS265HO-44 a very musical subwoofer. In fact, frequency response remains very flat up to 500 Hz.

Additional features include: a heavy gauge black anodized aluminum cone that resists deformation from extreme air pressure levels found inside of small sealed enclosures, a fully ventilated motor for reduced power compression, a rigid cast aluminum frame for structural integrity, and a tough rubber surround that wont wear down over years of use. Dual 4-ohm voice coils allow for a wide array of wiring options.

As with all Dayton Audio subwoofers, you receive a full 5-year warranty. Designed and engineered in the U.S.A.
