Dayton Audio SUB-1500 15" 150 Watt Powered Subwoofer is rated 4.6364 out of 5 by 33.
Rated 1 out of 5 by from Very disappointing !I have auditioned this sub in my two channel stereo for about a year now (wife got it for me for christmas last year, 2014) and I am disappointed to say the least in its performance. 15" woofer in a huge box does not make for huge bass which should be expected from a sub of this caliber. No it is not a 500 dollar sub BUT I have had many a sub that are smaller in the same price range that will simply outperform this one.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Fills the house!I've only had for a few weeks but I am happy so far. Went from an eight inch Yamaha(good for small room) to this and it does what the eight inch didn't and that is fill my house with sound. House is about 1500 square feet. I can't compare to other brands but I am happy.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Good valueFor the money it sounds pretty good. Seems a little underpowered when listening to music but sounds good with movies. Overall I would recommend.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Awesome value for the money, Get at least 2.I originally bought 2 of them than I figure 2 more would do the trick. Yes I have 4 of them in a 9.2 channel reciever with Y connections used on the SUB OUT. Room is bigger than most. I would suggest using the 180 degree switch as oppose to 0 and keep both crossover and gain at around 12 o clock posiitons. Front facing is best and near corner. My 4-12 inch upstairs Cerwin Vega's are better and go deeper and much tighter, but they also have 2 QSC Pro Power Amps on them...but for the price... you can't beat it the value of them.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Have 2 stacked.They are a great value. I moved my HSU tower sub (12 in.) to another room where it is happy. I first got 1 a few months ago and then they went out of stock. My son bought a second one for my wife and my 25th anniversary (with her knowledge). The second one is stacked on the first. Our theater room has a 9 1/2 foot ceiling and is 18 feet wide and is open to the opposite kitchen wall 40 feet away. There are Three shelving units about 15 feet away from the media wall ( including all but the rear channel speakers) which are on the shelving units. It is a lot of area to fill with bass and the HSU was OK but not completely up to the task. As far as performance - the HSU goes just a bit lower - but with less output as you would expect with a smaller driver. I use my theater for movies of course, but I also listen to music. I'm very impressed with both the quality and quantity of bass that I'm getting from these woofers. They are also nicely finished and look good with my system. I have purchased drivers, crossovers, speaker kits and finished speakers from Parts Express over the years and these are the most fun!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great valueI bought the sub1200 and sub1500 3 months ago. I haven't seen much comparison between the two. Both are great for the money, the sub1200 being a little better value, however the sub1500 definitely is the better home theatre sub.I've owned too many home and auto subs to count, and the sub1500 can hold it's own against anything over twice it's price, with most content. It gives up alittle in the lowest frequencies for higher volume where most movie content plays. I would attribute its high volume to a high sensitive driver and it's tune.For the price I don't see how anyone wouldn't be satisfied with this line of subs.

Would you recommend this sub strictly for rap music/dubstep??

Asked by: lellon123
Once you have it dialed in right, this sub will rock anything you put to it. Dub step and rap sound good through it also, but home theater is where this sub shines!

Hi: I have this sub. What is the ohm rating of the driver in the sub1500? The power rating of the amp. is 150 watts. Is that rating rms at 4 or 8 ohms? Would it be ok to use a higher rated amp. in this sub? Thanks!

Asked by: dvdphile
The woofer in this sub is 4 ohm. You could use a higher power amplifier, but we do not have the specific power rating for the woofer itself, so using a different amp will void the warranty on the woofer.

After reading information asked before me, would preamping before going into this plate amp add to the performance of this sub? Or would I be wasting time money doing so?

Asked by: Sevual26
The subwoofer output from a normal receiver is all you will need to get the most from this subwoofer.

What the max spl?

Asked by: Willie Earl
Not amazing. Its capable of playing decently loud but not a bassheads woofer. To me its amp clips too soon and is fairly weak.

is this sub compatible with a vizio soundbar???

Asked by: bobbybomac1226
This depends. If the sound bar has a preamp or subwoofer output, this will work. If it does not have any outputs unfortunately this will not work with it.

is it the 150w plate amplifier and The Dayton Audio DCS380-4 15" Classic Subwoofer 4? I was looking into getting a $150 15" sub and 300w plate amp and just building a set for the extra $$. just wondering if it would be a big difference or not too much...

Asked by: Bcboyz86
The plate amp and subwoofer in this enclosure are not sold separately, but the woofer will be somewhat comparable to the DCS380. If you were to build an enclosure to the right parameters for the DCS380 it would probably be larger, but it would likely outperform this especially if you double the power.
