Product Description

The Dayton Audio RSS265HO-44 10″ High Output Reference Series subwoofer is purpose-built for moving lots of air, extreme power handling, and extremely low distortion. Its small enclosure requirement makes it perfect for car audio automotive applications and limited space home audio applications. The subwoofer features three copper short-circuit paths built into the motor to minimize distortion, resulting in levels only attained previously by expensive, exotic subwoofers. This also reduces energy storage and inductance, making the RSS265HO-44 a very musical subwoofer with a flat frequency response up to 500 Hz.

Additional features of the Dayton Audio RSS265HO-44 include a heavy gauge black anodized aluminum cone that resists deformation from extreme air pressure levels found inside 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 won’t wear down over years of use. The dual 4-ohm voice coils allow for a wide array of wiring options, giving you flexibility in your audio setup.

As with all Dayton Audio subwoofers, the RSS265HO-44 comes with a full 5-year warranty, ensuring long-lasting performance and peace of mind. Designed and engineered in the U.S.A., this subwoofer is made with the highest quality materials to deliver exceptional sound quality and durability.
