Dayton Audio SUB-1000 10" 100 Watt Powered Subwoofer is rated 4.6197 out of 5 by 71.
Rated 5 out of 5 by from Works great with Dayton B452'sBought this a month ago with plans on adding a pair of Dayton B452's and a Lepai 2020. Hooked it all up this week and its wonderful already. The sub is way deeper and louder than I expected and is a perfect match for how much room I have to fill. Super easy to hookup and I plan on using this for a long time.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Very nice.You really can't tell it's there, it just makes my system sound great.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Solid and attractive subwoofer.Not sure if I needed a subwoofer with my HK-50's but wanted to complete my 5.1 surround sound setup. It gives me more boom than I really prefer but I haven't given the unit a break-in period as many posters have recommended. For the price point this is a good product.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Awesome sub at a great priceI wanted to get a sub to go with my 2 speakers I have in my garage [ which is my man cave] and with Eric's help I purchased the Dayton Audio sub-1000 which is an incredible value. I have another similar sub that I paid $479 for and this sub is every bit as good. I am extremely happy with it and it was a great Christmas present for myself. Thank you Parts Express! I highly recommend this sub to any audio buff.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Does what it should.I purchased two of these for a 7.2 channel system as opposed to one larger, more powerful subwoofer. One subwoofer was placed in each of the two front corners. After installing and calibrating all speakers in the system, I listened to a few different sources and found that the subs quietly went about doing what they needed to do. I am old school and I am not at all interested in rattling windows with an inordinate amount of base. But, I do like for the bottom end to be tight, full and supportive. And, that's what I got. I can easily recommend these subwoofers to anyone looking for the results I described. If you're looking to impress the neighbors three houses down with a ton of loud, obnoxious bass, you probably need to look elsewhere.

Dayton Audio SUB-1000 10" 100 Watt Powered Subwoofer

While viewing Dayton Audio SUB line of subwoofers, looks to me like all the plate amps appear to be the same size compared to enclosure dimensions. Are all of the amps identical?2

Asked by: Lewis54
All of the amps use a common rear plate design, but they differ in power output.

How would this sub work with a pair of the 3 series JBL studio monitors? the JBL have balanced inputs, and the subwoofer seems to only have "high Level" in-outs http://www.hdtvsolutions.com/images/articles/JBL-LSR-308-Back.jpg

Asked by: Skiscem
According to the picture there is no output on the JBL. The monitors would require a line or subwoofer output in order to work with this subwoofer.

Hi - I'm connecting a Dayton Audio APA 150 to a Dayton Audio SUB 1000, can I use the line outputs on the APA 150 to connect to the line inputs on the SUB 1000? I have an iPod connected to the line inputs on the APA 150. Thanks. 

Asked by: Fred De
Yes they can be hooked up this way, although the line outputs on the APA150 are fixed and not controlled by the volume knob. If you want to be able to simultaneously change the volume of both the APA150 and the sub, you will have to use the speaker level inputs and outputs on the subwoofer.

The 10" or the 12" for Music? If this will 95% be used to listen to music, should I go with the 10" or the 12". I read and hear that a 10" may be 'faster and more responsive," then the 12". I listen to mainly jazz and improv music like Grateful Dead

Asked by: AugustWest
Either will work for a music application. The claim of a smaller diameter driver being faster or more responsive is a myth, the alignment of the driver and proper implementation is what matters most. The 12" will have slightly more output capability than the 10", so if it is a larger room or you like to turn the volume up from time to time the 12" would be a better choice. If these are no a real concern than the 10" will work perfectly fine.

Will this fill a 17x17, two story ceiling room, with rear opening to the kitchen? It will mainly be used for movies.  My wife said the 1200 is too big.  Currently using the 8" Polk that came with my HTIB, and looking for just a little more/better sound. 

Asked by: Juice75
Yes this will work fine in that size area. Placement is key to a subwoofers performance, but this will produce more output than an 8" subwoofer.

Would this be compatible for a VIZIO SB4020E-A0B Home Theater Sound Bar ?

Asked by: citats
We do not have a direct reference to that sound bar, but if it has variable line outputs or a dedicated subwoofer output this will work without a problem.
