I just found out the amp im going to be using in my diy sub is actually only 105w RMS. My Sub will be 290L or so, 6"-23" port, which tunes it to 16.5Hz.

Will this power be sufficient to drive my Dayton 15" DVC?

Thanks Alot

I powered my big tube that used the Dayton 15" DVC driver with 115 watts and it was plenty loud.

105 watts should provide some decent bass. Most commercial subs don't even have that much power!

You might look at Tempest in the LSPcad, it's very close to Dayton DVC 15", so you can estimate cone excursion.
In 290L you probably tear it apart with 105W.
