Dayton Audio C1500K 15" 250 Watt Powered Subwoofer Kit
Dayton Audio C1500K 15" 250 Watt Powered Subwoofer Kit is rated 4.3913 out of 5 by 46.
Rated 4 out of 5 by from Very easy assembly.Had it only a week, played movies and music,nice deep tight bass. To get the max out of the sub I turned the subwoofer level on my amp all the way up and connected the rca cable to a Y cable to both inputs on the sub, but keep the sub gain no more than 10 o' clock and just control the volume from your amp.I keep bass boost off.I think this is a good quality sub and there's no way you'll find a comparable one for the price.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great subI've had this sub for about 5 years but recently replaced the 240 watt amp with the newer 250 watt unit and it really does sound better. Im currently running a 2.1 system with an onkyo 805 receiver and some old koss cm1010s ive rebuilt with ribbon tweeters. This sub will drive you right out of the room and seems to have endless bass power. Deep, powerful and extended...very impressive.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Great BOOM for buck!I am definitely NOT an audiophile. I know what sounds good to me, however I am just an average guy who wanted some boom for my TV. Wasn't sure if this would provide enough bass. It definitely does. I have the gain set to about 20 or 30% and it is perfect at about 100hz for my system. The box came assembled, just had to mount the speaker and amp, no instruction provided, however it is obvious. Would have given 5 stars if the correct size quick disconnects were provided, luckily I had my own ready to go.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from huge bang for your buckI needed some bass for my JBL based system, so I went ahead and purchased this unit. It came in three days, in near perfect condition. Assembly was a 15 minute job. The cabinet had some shipping damage, but very little. The amp and subwoofer are perfect. Setup was a snap, and it has the low bass notes I am looking for. Love this sub!!!!!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from WOW!!! VERY impressed!!I had the SUB-120 for a year or so and it wasn't giving me enough low end at all. I found this kit and was knew how well 15" drivers perform on the low end. I've been competing with car audio for years and I absolutely love the low end bass. Unfortunately, I received the kit with the cabinet smashed up pretty bad. This is all UPS's fault due to their poor handling... FORTUNATELY, this is one of the occasions where the PE customer service shines. I was sent a fresh cabinet the day of the call which was made immediately after I opened the packages. It arrived the NEXT DAY!! This woofer continues to make my jaw drop. Properly crossed over, I've got them flexing my closet doors and windows. Very efficient setup. The bass boost is off as well. My room is only about 170sqfeet and it's really filling. Not boomy, pure accuracy. For the price people, order this monster. You WILL NOT be disappointed. Not only did I at least double the output, I got way more low end extension than I thought I was going to get.Receiver - Denon AVR-589

Dayton Audio C1500K 15" 250 Watt Powered Subwoofer Kit

I have an open ceiling design that shows rafters.  Can this be mounted to those rafters or must it not be tied down like that?

Asked by: push8me
There is nothing wrong with having the enclosure tied or mounted to rafters.

I have a pair of vintage mono tube amplifiers.  They have 4 and 8 ohm taps.  I use the 8 ohm for a pair of very fast monitor speakers.  How would I connect this sub in my 2 channel home audio system?  I don't care about hearing sonic booms.  :)

Asked by: pietro
You would have to use the speaker level inputs and outputs on this subwoofer amplifier in order to wire that all together. You can see how this is done in the manual below.

how do you think this would measure up against a PAIR of your sub-1200's

Asked by: johnPr
Two 12's will have more displacement than a single 15", as well as better room placement options for smoothing out overall response. I always recommend two subs over one for this reason.

is this setup designed to be used with the amp bass boost on or off? anyone know what the f3 is with it on vs off? or will there be sound issues if its off? room is about 14 by 17 9 foot ceiling.

Asked by: steven ffff
We usually recommend turning the bass boost on for a sealed subwoofer. The F3 without is 43 Hz, the F3 with is 33 Hz. You will ultimately have to try it both ways to see what you like the sound of more.

I am just looking for pointers on the uses of high level and low level inputs? I think it depends on the amps configuration, right? Is it better to use one or the other? Thanks for any help!

Asked by: tomane
The high level inputs are recommended if there is no dedicated subwoofer output on the receiver. If the receiver has a subwoofer output, this will be the best connection to the subwoofer.
