Rated 4 out of 5 by from Great sub! Only one draw back.Great sounding with room filling bass. The price was right. The shipping was great. The only down fall is the auto on does not work well. It does not always come on at lower volumes and my solution is just leaving it on. I hope this does not hurt the sub or shorten the life of the product.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Integrated nicely with Wharfedale LCR speakersJust installed this in a friend's system and worked great with an Onkyo TX-NR626 receiver, Wharfedale LCR speakers and AudioPro speakers used as surrounds. It appears well built, has a nice clean finish, is very compact and it integrated well with the room. This is an excellent value. I liked it so much I just ordered the 12" version.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Great Sound but Auto On Does not work.I really like the sound of this Sub but the Auto on doesn't work. I had called customer support but was told to just leave the sub on all of the time. Seems this has been a problem for years that could be fixed but is ignored instead. Darn shame.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Sounds GreatThe sub arrived promptly and it was very well packed in sturdy cardboard and foam.I connected it into my system for my PC desktop sound. At first, I thought there was something wrong as the sub was just playing thump, thump and not demonstrating any musicality at all. But after an hour or so, I guess it broke in a bit and now it sounds really good. After two weeks, I've got it balanced well with the desktop speakers and they play really nice with each other.No regrets and no issues with the sub and for the price, its a really good deal. For a PC desktop system it could be considered overkill, but considering the price, why not?

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Dayton Sub 1000I bought this to use on a secondary stereo system (music only). It's matched with a Yamaha stereo receiver and Symphony bookshelf speakers.This is a nice little sub that is welll worth the money. Definitely fills in the bass gap left by my bookshelf speakers.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Very good budget subwooferI have it matched up with my Energy Take Classics and it sounds really good. I no longer watch movies or listen to music at very loud volumes (that's what having small children around the house does to you) so I wasn't looking for some Earth shattering sub that can dig to the sub 30Hz range. My old Pioneer SW-8 died after less than 2 years of use, but while it worked, it suited me all right. Even for my moderate tastes and listening volumes, I could tell the Pioneer wasn't 100% up to the task of filling my family room which is roughly 15'x20', but it was nice and tight for an 8", especially for music, and that's what I used it for about 80% of the time anyway (20% for TV and movies). But after hooking up the Dayton, man, I could tell right away this was a significantly beefier sub. You could just "feel" the lows more, even at quieter volumes. I was a little worried that a budget 10" might be too boomy and loose for music compared to my old Pioneer 8" but it holds it's own. I'm usually the kind of person who needs a direct A/B comparison to know if one sub is better than another, especially at this lower budget range, but I had no problems hearing the superiority of this sub over the Pioneer SW-8 even without an immediate comparison. Granted I paid $30 more for this sub than the Pioneer, but it's well worth it IMO.One con, as mentioned by many others, is the auto turn on is much less sensitive than other subs I've used. I had to jack up the receivers LFE output gain to +8 out of 12. Other subs I've owned worked just fine with the LFE output gain at 0. No big deal, I just had to turn down the gain at the sub amp to compensate for it.I did have to do an RMA on the first sub I received. Their customer service got me a return shipping label right away though. It took two grueling weeks to receive my new sub though (1 week for the return, and 1 week to ship the new one). I kind of wish they sent out the new one right after giving me the shipping label, but I shouldn't complain, overall it was very hassle free and great customer service. I'm taking off 1 star because now I'm a little paranoid that something will happen to this sub, seeing how I was unlucky enough to get a defective one originally.

Dayton Audio SUB-1000 10" 100 Watt Powered Subwoofer

I've already got one that I'm using. Love it so far, however, I want more bass output. Could I grab a second one to use with it, or would I have issues?

Asked by: Deiko25
Adding a second powered subwoofer will not cause any issues as long as it is integrated properly.

Hie I was just wondering what is the actual amp and watt of the sub so that i can downgrade them and use them in australia. Thanks

Asked by: binod
The amplifier is 100 watts RMS. I would recommend a minimum step down transformer of 200 watts in order for this to work on 220 V.

At about 2:40 in the video, Joe says the subwoofer will "filter out the low frequencies going to your satellites, allowing them to play with less distortion". Does this really crossover to the satellites, or is it just a low pass for the sub driver?

Asked by: Plutoboy
These actually do not have a high pass filter on the speaker outputs. Only the woofer has a filter of any kind.

Does this have the exact same driver as the SUB-1000L? I have a project idea and need to know the approximate mounting depth of the sub-1000's driver. Thank you PE!

Asked by: JoelGrant
The depth of the Sub-1000 woofer is 4" from the back of the gasket, and 4-3/8" from the top of the gasket.
