Rated 5 out of 5 by from great buy!I bought this about a month ago to compliment my KT66SE amp and ps 220 8 fullrangers. At little over $100 I figured the price was right. What a surprise! It blends really well in my system and was easy to set up. Adds just the right amount of oomph I was looking for without being boomy. Parts Express is the best!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Wow what a great sub.This sub really kicks but is tight and accurate. It was easy to hook up and adjust. Highly recommended especially at this price.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Super SubI purchased this sub to fill in the low end in a 2.1 system with the Dayton BR-1 kit I also purchased from Parts Express. It's doing its job competently; can't complain.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Best sub for pinballThere has been a lot of promo for people adding Polk PSW-10 subs to their pinball machines. Reading reviews online, the Dayton looked like it was a better sub so I bought both in effort to compare them. After testing both on a few of my games, I prefer the Dayton over the Polk. The Dayton has more punch and is less muddy.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Great Price!My old Infinity subwoofer started making strange noises and I couldn't get it to stop so I needed a new one but didn't want to spend a lot of money. The Dayton Audio has a great price. It was a little bigger than I expected. I tried leaving it on "auto" instead of "on" but I didn't hear any bass for a while. I had to turn it to "on" to make sure it worked. I turned the gain a little higher than I would have expected to based on the Parts Express video review. Maybe my old sub was too boomy and this one is tighter? I don't know all the audio terms. Anyway, it sounds good. Hopefully it will last a long time.

Dayton Audio SUB-1000 10" 100 Watt Powered Subwoofer

Is this sub really 100 watts continuous power? It seems to hit a brick wall beyond a certain volume which makes me think it's 100 watts peak power not continuous. I would like to upgrade to a more powerful amp. Anyone have any suggestions?

Asked by: BillBill
Yes this subwoofer will produce 100 watts RMS. There is a lot involved in the output you will get from a subwoofer, room placement, receiver output levels etc. If possible, I would recommend trying differnet places in the room, it may be sitting in a null. Unfortunately a larger amp will not be very beneficial since you can only get so much from a 10" subwoofer.

Is there a version of this subwoofer with 1/4" or XLR inputs & outputs?

Asked by: JeremyRyan
Unfortunately no, the only subwoofers we offer with a balanced input will be for pro audio.

Want to add a sub to an occasionally used system.B652 fronts and Minimus 7's rears. The room is roughly 15x15, but an A Frame,ceiling slopes to 20' h front and rear. Carpet floor. Would the 10" be the right size or could I get away with the 8".

Asked by: bgbuffalo1
I would consider that a small to medium sized room, or about average. The 8 will have no problem filling it but it may have trouble if you decide to turn the volume up a bit. The 10 will be able to handle this better, but if you never crank it the 8 should work fine.

I have active monitor speakers M-audio av40. Will it be possible to connect them to this sub? 

Asked by: Koki
The monitors will have to have a subwoofer or line output in order to work with a subwoofer like this.

I have an Onkyo TX-DS787 amp. The instructions indicate the powered subwoofer should be connected to the Pre-Out plug. The is only one, no right and left. Would this unit be usable. The original speaker I am replacing had a LFE IN (Unfiltered) plug.

Asked by: FredGH
You can use the Left line in when connecting to a Mono LFE type of output. The two are summed to mono at the input anyways so it will work out the same

Once an input signal has been detected, how long does the amplifier typically remain on?

Asked by: don4264
Generally the amplifier will stay on for 10-15 minutes before it shuts off.
