Dayton H10RW

Manufacturers Info

Brand: Dayton Audio

Model: H10RW

Style: ---

Coverage: 75 Degrees

Minimum Frequency: 1600 Hz

Throat: 1"

Mounting Type: 1-3/8"-18 TPI

Dimensions: 10" Round x 5" Deep

Additional Notes:

Symmetrical waveguide, only tested on a single axis.

Horn throat is too large leading to a driver exit/throat mismatch which I have noticed on most of the Dayton horns/waveguides.


Test Notes: Off axis and polars measured using a Celestion CDX1-1731

Mic distance 1m, measurements gated at 5ms and are smoothed at 1/48 Octave.

Final Notes:

Dispersion of this waveguide appears to roughly match the rated 75 degrees. Like the H08RW the throat diameter mismatch hurts performance in the top octave though it's not quite as bad here. This waveguide does exhibit some widening in the 3-6k range where there is a slight on axis depression. When this is present moving the design or reference axis to around 10 degrees off center helps improve uniformity as seen in the graphs below.
