Default Dayton Titanic MK2 Drivers

Dayton (Parts Express) has introduced a new set of Titanic sub drivers. These seem geared to smaller box sizes than the NHT1259 and the old T-1200. For a sealed box, analyzing w/ WinISD, F3 increases about 8Hz to ~36Hz with a 44% drop in internal volume. A huge factor in my current home/sig. other situation while sticking to a sealed box! Other than this hit in F3 are there any other concerns I should be aware of with these drivers? Has anyone played with these yet? (I understand they haven't been out too long) As always any input is greatly appreciated.

-Pete Kunz

hi pete,

this is one of those, "i haven't tried it myself but..."

anyway, have you checked out the the hometheater forum sites?

i remember reading a couple of threads regarding the mk2

you can try this one if you haven't seen it.

unfortunately, nobody really gives you a direct answer there (sorry, i can't find the other posts). the dayton subs have a fairly good reputation and if the TS parameters work for you.


if small size is paramount, have you thought of a sub with active eq?

Thank you for the link,
There were quite a few discussions there on how dramatically different the MK2 drivers are from the 'old' versions, but I also discovered that these drivers are not even available yet (sometime in March?)
I guess I'll have to think over the Volume vs. F3 trade, but for music only 35Hz is likely sufficient. Thanks again.
