    I'm in the process of building 2, 1.9Cu ft sealed subs. I'm just debating over which driver to use. I already have 1 amp from Brian, the [email protected] amp and wondering if the 12" Dayton DVC is ok for this amp.

    I ask this because the DC resistance of the Dayton is 2.69ohms and in the amp manual it says that DC resistance should be no less than 2.5 ohms in a sealed enclosure or else the thermal circuitry of the amp would be activated more often.

    So is the .19 ohms difference disregardable? Can anyone give me the thumbs up to go with this combo?

    Tony, have you also tried the av12 with the PE 250w amp(not sure if you have it)? I'm trying to decide if the rythmik is worth the extra.

    Brian,

    Yes i have both and IMO the rhythmik is better by far. More adjustable features for frequency cutoff off 14,20, and 28hz and low,mid, and High damping.

    Sorry about that,

    I would check with Brian from Rhytmik. I have no DVC subs to try for you.

    Bruin,

    Sorry we "hijacked" your thread. Not many people if any on these forums have experience with the rythmik/dvc combo so it would be best to send Brian an email. He usually responds very quickly.
