Dayton Audio C1500K 15" 250 Watt Powered Subwoofer Kit
Dayton Audio C1500K 15" 250 Watt Powered Subwoofer Kit is rated 4.381 out of 5 by 42.
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

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Boom for your buckThis kit does everything I expected it to. In the tiny room I have my entertainment system it performs very well.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from This is my second sub..Have added this to my setup to match one already in place.Using these for 2 channel music. The addition of this second sub has proven to be well worth the cost. Both are set up for bass enhancement for blues and classical music.Work very well in my room with my gear so I'm pretty happy with them.Parts Express did an excellent job of getting this shipped very fast with no problems.These work very well considering their price point. Try it! You will like it!

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Room filling bassOrdered on a Sunday and recieved by that Tuesday!! Minor problem as no screws were included to assemble the unit. Less than 20 minutes from opening package to testing with my system. Fills my large 600 sq ft room with clear sharp bass. If you push the unit hard the woofer will bottom out, lowered the gain to eliminate the issue. Now it's time to fix the buzzing from the pictures on the walls ;-)

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great speakerI am not an audiophile, but I enjoy good music. My friend suggested it (he is much closer to an audiophile). We set this up (I assisted him) but to be honest, it is 30 minutes of work that even I could do alone unassisted. Other than screwing in the speakers and amp, there are two plugs (audio positive/negative) that you need to connect. That's it. The box sounds great (comes in two separate shipments).The only thing I would have liked is a simple document explaining the knobs, switches, and plugs on the back of the amp. Other than where I plug in the cables to the receiver I don't know much about the other items.Still, for the price, I am extremely happy. I got some awesome base!

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

Asked by: John trips
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: stevenf
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.

Blow-out?

So I've had this speaker for almost a year (connected to Harman Kardan AVR 3600). I think it's an awesome speaker, and a few weeks ago had a blow (on the amp) and static. Parts Express fixed it (great job, thank you), but two minutes after it was connected I heard a soft pop, and then it started to static (I immediately turned it off). Does anyone have any suggestions?The settings on my speaker is:Auto-OnPhase NormalGain/Frequency just under the half-way mark (around 40%Plugged into mono-left
Asked by: furby076
I would buy a simple volt/ohm meter [see suggestions below] if you don't already have one. I think you may have a melted voice coil that could be presenting a dead or close to dead short to your amplifier. When you disconnect the speaker wires, you should get a reading about 10 to 20% below the speaker's impedance [3ohms for 4ohm speaker/6ohms for 8ohm speaker] that's natural. A reading of zero=a dead short. That is the way of subwoofers. They get hot. The only other source of static, is in the cables [assuming the preamp and amp are OK]. BTW: a setting of gain at half way, does not mean half power. You can overheat anything if the signal to the plate amp is strong enough. It's called "gain structure".

can i put a passive radiator in this sub?

Asked by: john1
A passive radiator is not recommended simply due to the enclosure size.
