A Dayton RSS210HF-4 will do it. F3/F10 (20 liters net, sealed) 36/24Hz. 100dB @xmax (70 watts).

ESP - The Linkwitz Transform Circuit
Rod Elliott is always a good read. I took his advice and used a low Fs long throw 15" woofer in a smallish sealed box, then EQed it ("Linkwitz Transform" via my DCX2496) for flat response to 20Hz. Without EQ the -3dB point is about 33Hz, so it takes a bit of boost to reach 20Hz. Works like a champ.

I looked at that Dayton...seems impressive!!

So...more info...I run a DEQX...so with measurement and with it's parametric EQ function, I can do whatever I want to with whatever driver I wish...I'm still learning all there is to know about it and it's been 8 months that I've had it LOL!!1

Yes, but you should still plug the drivers t/s specs into a simulation program such as WinISD to help predict when(power-/-freq-/-boost) you will run out of xmax on a given driver.

WinISD has the option to add a parametric eq, so you can simulate from there. Hopefully the parameters will be the same as those you put into the DEQX

Default If you have Excel . .

I like this a lot better than WinISD. Can model EQ, sub amps, PR, etc.
