  • Dayton Audio PA385S Opinions

    What's the opinion on a pair of these for sub duty in a smallish PA setup? I'm not concerned a ultra low bass, just decent output. I would rather move two smaller cabs than one larger 18" sub.

    Well, they look like they'd do over 120dB @ 40Hz @ 1000w in a 3cf box (ea. driver) w/a pair of 4"id x 7" long vents (ea. driver).

      I modeled them in a 4 cu ft box in WinLSD, looks like a winner although the Port Speed is a bit high. But a 3-4' box would be a lot easier to move that a 7' cu. for an 18. I think two small cabs would be the way to go.

          What did you end up with? I bought a pair of these around November. Built a single driver box. 4.5cf tuned to 37 hz. I'm not really happy with the output. Measuring with DATS shows different properties than the published stats.

          I'm curious how yours ended up?

            Care to share your measurements?
