Dayton Audio 10″ Reference HE Subwoofer
The RSS265HE-22 10″ Reference Series high excursion subwoofer from Dayton Audio will generate incredible bass response with unparalleled detail, control, and SPL capability. Engineered for maximum linear displacement with extensive inductance control, Parts Express this massive subwoofer produces unmatched low frequency extension and high output with the lowest possible distortion. Optimized for small enclosures and with dual 2-ohm voice coils, the RSS265HE-22 is flexible enough to add breath taking bass to high output home and car audio designs.

Remarkably powerful low distortion motor
In order to keep precise control of the cone when driven to high excursion, the RSS265HE-22 requires an incredibly powerful motor. A stack of 3 high energy Y-35 ferrite magnets is used to provide the force needed while allowing ample clearance for the voice coil to travel without impacting the back plate. A copper ring and thick aluminum sleeve helps minimize stored energy and lower inductance as the coil travels through the motor. This massive motor assembly gives the RSS265HE-22 the ability to produce extremely low distortion and accurate response even when driven to the limits of its 50 mm peak-to-peak excursion.
Amazing power handling with low power compression
Driving the cone is a large 3” diameter voice coil wound on a thick aluminum former that is capable of dissipating enough heat to handle up to 800 watts RMS. A spiral spit in the former minimizes the eddy currents that are induced into any conductive former, to further lower inductance and distortion. The venting through the voice coil former and pole piece delivers ample airflow across the coil while minimizing turbulence to allow quiet operation when pushed to high displacement. In addition, Parts Express the copper ring and aluminum sleeve improve heat transfer to the pole piece and magnet assembly, more efficiently absorbing heat away from the coil. All of this gives the RSS265HE-22 the ability to reliably handle tons of power without suffering from significant power compression, even when pushed hard for extended periods.
Optimized suspension for maximum linear stroke
In order to accommodate the 25 mm Xmax, the RSS265HE-22 required flexible suspension that permits linear movement to keep the voice coil centered even when driven beyond the limits of excursion. A custom tooled high roll surround maintains surface area and allows an incredible amount of travel without tightening up or distorting. Dual progressive spiders with integrated tinsel leads support the cone and voice coil. The spiders are optimized to begin restricting movement just as the driver reaches Xmax to protect from catastrophic damage in the event of excessive dynamic peaks. Parts Express In addition, the spiders have significant space between them to keep the coil centered in the tight magnetic gap. Every aspect of the suspension on the RSS265HE-22 has been designed to reliably deliver extreme excursion capability without adding significant distortion.
Aluminum cone and dustcap… a Reference series tradition
To visually fit in with the rest of the popular Reference Series Subwoofers, the RSS265HE-22 uses a rigid anodized aluminum cone and dustcap. The cone is significantly thicker to withstand the force that will be applied with such a powerful motor and to increase mass for a low Fs. Thanks to the rigidity and natural damping properties of aluminum, any cone breakup is pushed well outside of the pass band giving the RSS265HE-22 exceptionally flat response, even throughout the mid-bass and lower midrange frequencies. In addition, aluminum is an excellent conductor of heat, turning the entire cone and dustcap assembly into a large heatsink that effectively wicks heat away from the voice coil to further control power compression.
Incredible flexibility to add powerful bass to any system
The specs of the RSS265HE-22 have been balanced to operate in a variety of situations. Extended low frequency extension makes it ideal for subwoofer use in home audio and theater systems. With extremely small enclosure requirements, the RSS265HE-22 is also an excellent choice for use in high output car audio designs. Also, dual 2-ohm voice coils allow for stereo 2-ohm or mono 1-ohm wiring configurations when connecting to high current car audio and professional audio amplifiers to extract maximum power. Parts Express For home audio applications, simply wire the voice coils in series for a more common 4-ohm load for greater amplifier compatibility. All of the Reference Series HE drivers are built to provide amazing low frequency response with unbelievable power, impact, and detail.

Onboard connectivity makes this an easy-to-add and easy-to-adjust solution
The amplifier features high and low level inputs and high level outputs, a phase switch, independent volume control, an auto on/off switch (activated by an input signal) and a variable 12 dB electronic low pass filter. This compact sub finished in an unobtrusive black vinyl that will complement any décor.
1. Line Level Inputs
The line level inputs are used to connect pre-out or preamplifier outputs directly to the subwoofer amplifier’s internal crossover. These inputs are summed to mono. Parts Express This is the preferred way to connect the subwoofer amplifier. If you have a mono line level signal from a “Pro-Logic” or “Dolby Digital” receiver use the right “red” input. Note: If a LFE mono output is connected, set the crossover point to maximum.
2. High Level Inputs
If preamplifier outputs are not available, use the high-level (speaker) inputs. The speaker level inputs can be connected directly to amplifier by inserting speaker wire.
3. High Level Outputs
There also high level outputs which can be used to connect main speakers or to another powered subwoofer high level inputs. Note: High level outputs are paralleled to high level inputs with no high pass filter.
4. Crossover Frequency Control
Continuously variable from 40 Hz at 12 dB/octave. Set the frequency control to where the audio does not sound “muddy”, normally between 60-80 Hz. Note: If a LFE mono output connected set crossover point to maximum.
5. Gain Control
Adjusts the output level of the subwoofer. Set the level to where the bass frequencies blend with the other speakers. Note: Most people have a tendency to set the level too high, which makes the audio sound “boomy”.
6. Phase Switch
Selectable between 0° and 180°. This assists subwoofer placement. The correct position will be the one that provides the most apparent bass output.
7. Power Switch (Auto On/Off)
When the power is in the auto position, the amplifier will automatically turn on when a signal is present. Note: In auto/off mode, the power on LED is always on (red), even when amp is in rest mode (off). The power LED will turn green when the unit activated.
The SUB Series Subwoofer Systems will produce more bass when they placed in a corner. Choose a corner that close to the component area and place the sub at the front of the listening area.
If you need a little more control over the way your sub sounds, consider adding DSP and acoustic treatment.
