    • Cosmetic frame with low profile lip, designed for front mounting—no countersinking required!
    • Coated paper cone, half roll rubber surround for durability and accurate reproduction
    • Optimized to yield a low 3 dB down point and high potential output in a reasonably sized cabinet
    • Smooth frequency response and linear roll-off simplify filter design, guaranteeing good results with off-the-shelf crossovers
    • Vented pole piece for minimized power compression and maximized reliability
    • Generous Xmax capability encourages use of moderate bass boost to tailor the response
    • Retains the same "family look" as the popular Dayton Audio DVC Series subwoofers and passive radiators

    Nice design acoustically, but let down by the fixing hole size & quantity for a pressed steel frame.
    6 or 8 holes would have been much better as they are only M4 size, hardly adequate for such a heavy driver.
