suggestions for 10 inch woofer, sealed enclosure

sealed enclosure (considering an aperiodic vented design)

low-end extension w/o eq  ~ 60Hz (or lower) range 

low-pass ~ 400Hz

A few I have been looking at;

Tymphany sdf-250F75Pr01-06

Morel MW 1058

Beyma 10BR60v2


I would appreciate input, as to date I have not worked with a sealed woofer design.  

Thanks in advance for suggestions and ideas.


  • Use the Low-pro Dayton 10" with a passive assist, and you'll get 40Hz sealed.
  • I have one of the Peerless Tymphany SDF-250F75Pr01-06 subwoofers.  It's a beast!  I've never seen such a large pole piece vent.  I have no idea how it sounds above 80 Hz.  I use it ported with a plate amp.
  • I would also take a look at the Peerless 830668.  I built a pair of WMTM's with my son using that 10" in about 1 cubic foot sealed.  It has very nice/clean bass and midbass and we crossed it over to the mids at about 400 Hz second order if I remember correctly.  I first heard that woofer in Paul's Carmody's Tarkus project which was kind of an odd ported alignment.  I thought it sounded ok.  But in this sealed box it sounds so much better.

    Thanks for the suggestion (830668).  I'm good with the xmax (actually prefer its xmax vs the Tymphany sdf-250F75Pr01-06, as I'm not looking for a subwoofer thumper) and it's f3, it’s the 1.5 inch voice coil (a bit small) and the power handling that gives me some concern.  

  • I used the 668 free air in an H-frame. Minding the xmax, it sounded wonderful. 
  • I haven't used one (yet), but I have heard that the Eminence BP102 sounds good in a sealed box.  The Dayton RS270 looks like it would do well also.

  • The 10" Dayton DVC Sub (SD270) worked surprisingly well sealed in my Indium 7 design.  I crossed at around 750 Hz to a dome mid.
    Keep an open mind, but don't let your brain fall out.
