Dayton Audio SUB-1000 10" 100 Watt Powered Subwoofer
Dayton Audio SUB-1000 10" 100 Watt Powered Subwoofer is rated 4.6082 out of 5 by 97.
Rated 5 out of 5 by from Exceptional SubI bought this sub to replace my subwoofer that had recently died. I looked at all of the "popular" brands, read tons of reviews and decided to give the Dayton Audio SUB-1000 a shot. Wow was I surprised! This sub was a fraction of the cost of my old subwoofer and sounds just as great. I'm not an "audiophile" but it paired nicely with my Martin Logan speakers. At first, the sub was a big muddled, but that's to be expected until it was broke in. If you are looking for a great sub at a great price, you can't go wrong with this one.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Very ImpressivePurchased this for a smaller secondary theater setting. Did not want to spend too much so I gave the Dayton a shot after reading the good reviews. Arrived double boxed and I was very happy with its appearance. Set up the room and played a few movies and music through the system to get a quick listen. Initial sound from the sub was very stiff (kind of an all or nothing type of bass response) but after playing it for several hours while we finished unpacking boxes in the new house, it began to sing. With that being said, I totally recommend breaking this sub in at moderate volume. I will say that by the second week of owning this sub, I actually liked its response better than the $1500 sub in my REAL theater setup. This is definitely the best Sub I have heard anywhere near this price point. Clean and tight for music but able to rumble for movies. This is a no brainer....get one before the neighbors figure it out and Dayton raises the price due to high reviews!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Exceeded ExpectationFirst, I'm not an audiophile but I've had decent systems through the years and have a decent ear. I didn't want a full blown theater system for this small room but wanted better sound than the tv offered. I bought a Vizio soundbar and was very happy but understandably there wasn't enough bass. So I went looking for a budget/value sub woofer that would add crisp lows. This Dayton 10" is perfect for my music and tv needs. I'm still playing with placement and settings. I probably could have gotten away with the 8" but the 10" was on sale. It is a lot larger than I was anticipating even though I had the measurements. Only negative thus far has been that my dog doesn't appreciate the boom. Definitely recommend.

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.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Terrific bargain!I have had my Sub-1000 for about 2 months now and I love it. Well-made. Lots of adjustments to tailor it to anyone's taste. Packaging was excellent - double boxed with foam at the corners. Easy to set up and sound is great. I have it mated to my PC with Adam F5 speakers. Great combination.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Very Good Budget Priced SubI've had this in my office for a few months now and I am very pleased with it. No, it isn't audiophile grade and won't compete with expensive subs; but it's an excellent solution for when you want a sub that sounds very good for a low price. This is exactly what I needed for my office; a very good sounding sub that didn't set me back an arm and a leg. I have some high-end stuff, but I can't afford it all over.Definitely recommended. I am using it with two small bookshelf speakers for music; but should work equally well in home theater.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Boomtown!Replaced a Polk 8" sub with this beast which is paired with DefTech 1000 front speakers and Polk TL3's for the rears. Nothing wrong with the Polk sub which I kept and moved to the family room, but thought I would try the 10" sub in the living room which is a bit larger listening space. I toyed with the idea of buying the 12-inch Dayton sub, but after watching the video clip demo on the parts-express web-site, decided it was too large for my application (which proved true - the 10" sub just fits in the corner space where I had the 8" sub). First impressions of the Dayton sub out of the box were good: nice looking cabinet with a good functional design. The only 'negative' comment I can make is that the switches & knobs on the back of the sub don't have the same quality look & feel as the equivalents on the Polk sub, but the Polk sub is also >$100 more in cost than the Dayton sub, so I reckon this is to be expected. More importantly, how did this 10" sub compare to my old 8" sub? Surely as good if not better. The Dayton sub sounds great with movies that feature low-frequency effects and integrates perfectly with my existing speakers. I can easily rattle my wife's knick-knacks with the opening intro of Breaking Bad on blu-ray at mid-level volumes. The sub has the high impact I was expecting for movie watching, and sounds great with music as well. My wife and daughter are Zumba instructors that now practice their craft with the 10" Dayton sub in place, and it provides clear and punchy bass on all of those hip-twisting Latin Zumba songs with no low-end muddiness whatsoever. Overall I am very satisfied with the Dayton sub-1000 purchase, especially at the great price from Parts-Express (with free shipping!). Can you buy a better sub at higher cost? Of course you can. But if you are looking for a quality product that provides great low-end sound effect for everyday movie watching & music playing without breaking the bank, then you have just found your sub-woofer. I am usually respectful of the "you get what you pay for" cliche, but in this case, I got much more than I payed for with the great value Dayton Audio sub-1000 delivered on-time and in great condition from PartsExpress.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from PerfectJust needed a sub for my workout room for when I listen to music on the treadmill. I use a pa system through some EV pa speakers. They were lacking low bass. This active subwoofer does the job very well even at loud volumes. Great quality for this nice price. My music is well rounded now with the sub frequencies that I needed. Totally satisfied.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Boom for the BuckThis was a problem solver. The bookshelf speakers we paired with it lacked the low as you can imagine. Anyway it is a great low end (frequency) solution! It's not even right to get that low for that dough. Would love to hear a room with 2 or 4 or 8 of these. Why not? That would equal the cost of 1 high powered sub.
Date published: 2015-02-17
Rated 4 out of 5 by from Very nice for the priceVery nice and tight sub with only a couple of quirks - first, the auto-on trigger seems to be set a bit high (is there a pot or something where this can be adjusted?) but I've gotten around it by just leaving it on all of the time. Not a big deal, but would be nice if it triggered by any signal at all (which it should - why would you need anything more?.) Second, it seems a bit more difficult to dial in than previous subs, where it's not enough for some and a bit too much for other sources/music. Also not a deal breaker by any means, and probably just me more than anything. It's not a chest thumping, bone-rattling sub of course, but it's nice a tight and doesn't seem to struggle much. It looks nice - very plain and non-intrusive. No frills at a great price. I'll probably add another and 20" of sub for not much more than $200 is a steal.

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.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Best sub for the price, but slightly undepoweredI've had this sub now for close to a year, and i use it every day for music, movies, and video games. It sounds great playing all kinds of music (if you set it up/tune it/place it properly). Keep in mind that it is only a 10 inch, and it is not the "house rattling" powerhouse that some other reviewers portray. My incredibly accurate iPhone app (ha ha) says that the sub can put out about 103db (measurement taken from about 5 inches away from the woofer), so it has decent output. It can be heard from outside my house, but barely. It produces tight bass, but it still sounds great playing rap/bass heavy music. The only reason i didn't give it 5 stars (and i wish i could have given it 4.5) is the fact that the woofer, in my opinion, could handle more power than this amp can put out. Its advertised as 100 watts, and i think that is fairly accurate. My only suspicion is if you look at the amp from the inside of the enclosure, it says 50 watts on a circuit board. I cant say for sure what that 50watt label means, so i guess thats just an FYI. Overall, i love the way this sub sounds for the size and the price, but at times it makes me want more (maybe a 150 watt amp would help). My friend has the 12 inch version and that definitely digs a little deeper if your looking for lower response. Reliable product, recommend it 100% as well as all other Dayton Audio products.

Dayton Audio SUB-1000 10" 100 Watt Powered Subwoofer

Does the "high-level input", mean the output from the amplifier that is driving the rest of the speakers. Does the subwoofer low-pass filter this input, and make it mono? I have the Lepai LP7498E 200W, going to two bookshelf speakers.

Asked by: skorn
From watching the video I might've answered it. Use the sub as a pass through for speakers that don't have a subwoofer output on them.
Answered by: skorn

I have a Sony receiver STR-DH550 with 2 sub-woofer input connections - does the Sub 1200 or 1000 woofer have the proper input for the mono connection to this receiver? And does the woofer come with that cable or do I need to purchase one from you?

Asked by: nick00
I think I can answer my own question - Yes. I took a few minutes to study the images of the sub-woofer in question and also the images of my receiver manual and found that the cable will fit the receiver just fine. I also viewed the on-site video of the sub-woofer and saw the connection made to the sub-woofer shown - so it should be okay. I went ahead, ordered the sub-woofer and included a cable. Thanks for reading this.

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?

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

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

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.

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.

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.

Is there a filter to keep really low bass from my bookshelf speakers?

Asked by: T Pat
The speaker level outputs are pass-throughs and do not have any form of high pass filter.

Can I match the Sub-1000 with my Polk PSW505? I have a fairly big room and was thinking this sub would add some more depth if placed in an area away from the Polk, perhaps on the other side of the room.

Asked by: Dynamite
Yes they will work fine together with the proper integration. This means getting phase and gains set properly, which will rely on listening tests and tweaking to get it right.

I Need help with my SUB-1000. It stopped working. Also, the red light is always on even on ON mode, but never turns green. No matter what i try, can't get it to work. The fuse seems good.

You are recommending not removing the legs since its a downfiring port design. What if I have it sitting on a shelf that is part of a side table, so it it resting about 5" off the floor? The shelf consists of bars with spacing, not  a solid shelf.

Asked by: krandy
As long as the port has ample air flow it will not matter. If the shelf allows plenty of flow and does not cause any port noise there is no problem with this.

What is the height of the unit without the legs?  Are the legs removeable?

Asked by: krandy
The enclosure height without the feet is 13-1/2" and the feet add 1-5/8". This is a down firing port design so you will not want to remove the feet unless you plan on laying the enclosure on its side.

Hi, I have a Vizio sound bar(vsb200),I'm wondering if this sub works with it. 

Asked by: Dwax9999
As long as the sound bar has a subwoofer output via RCA this subwoofer will work fine with it.

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
