Excellent general-purpose subwoofer that works well in sealed or vented enclosures.

Dayton Audio Classic Series woofers are excellent for use as replacement speakers or for new loudspeaker system design and construction. The DCS450-4 18" subwoofer has developed quite a reputation for having the best bang-for-the-buck performance and value available anywhere. Extended bass response and generous Xmax make this driver ideal for use in high output subwoofers. A Qts of 0.47 allows the DCS450-4 to work well in both sealed and ported speaker enclosures.

A polymer laminate paper cone offers rigidity, while the 3" four-layer high temperature aluminum voice coil and vented pole piece combine to increase power handling without compression. Longevity is ensured with the use of a rubber surround, treated cloth dust cap, and an extended bump plate.
