Rated 4 out of 5 by from Dayton Sub-1500 for Electric DrumApplication: Using as Drum Monitor with Behringer EUROLIVE F1220AEnvironment: Small Church & out door gigPurchased two weeks ago! Use it to compliment drum sound with the Eurolive.... This sub provide very nice deep bass sound. The 150W RMS is not as loud as I would like it. Although, this SUB provided deep bass sound that I am looking for from the electric bass drum and tom. The e-drum I am using is Yamaha DTXtreme IIs. The 150W RMS is not enough power for me. I would have rate it 5 stars. I may purchase 350w amplifier plate and replace it.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Bought one...gonna buy another.I am an audioholic. I wan't a specific sound and have gone to great lengths to achieve it. I currently run a Yamaha rx-v1050 vintage receiver * vintage * flagship avr. 1 pair of Cerwin Vega vs-120's and on occasion my Dcm Kx10 series 1's. so yes i like my music fairly loud and very clear. I bought my sub 1500 based on reviews of it's low end near 20hz. My vega's do 28 hz so i wanted to add to my low end and gain subsonic frequency's so i bought it.....out of box and hooked up this black beauty performs well...no lack of subsonics with this woofer.....however....it's amp leaves something to be desired.....it's decent don't get me wrong but it doesn't make this driver perform like i'd expect.....i digress i'm still pre break in but i doubt this amp .could even try and warm up this driver. so....for the money and for what it does i rcommend this woofer to everyone thats on a budget looking for the lower reaches of bass.....for someone who likes it loud.......out of the box it wont really impress. this is not a bassheads dream but it is clean linear and low. i'm gonna buy another one for another 3 decibels of output in a stereo setup and hope she breaks in soon....the only gripe i have is the duo color le.d. on the back * red * * Green *....the green side works sporadically at best....

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Everyone in my dorm hates me now....I bought this bad boy for my dorm room along with a pair of daytons, and a cheap little amp and I have to say for under $220 I was blown away.... literally. the sound was crisp and the bass was as low as I could have hoped for..... I just want to say that 150 watts in this beast is definitely enough.... all you really need is a decent amp to power your bookshelf speakers because this thing does not power your speakers.

Dayton Audio SUB-1500 15" 150 Watt Powered Subwoofer

I just bought one of the powered 15" subs from you. Can I run wires out of that to another powered 12" sub? The new one is hooked up to a digital theater organ.

Asked by: BrianLark
Unfortunately this subwoofer does not have line level outputs, only inputs. You will have to split the signal at the receiver in order to feed both.

I do not see an LFE or subwoofer input. Can you use the mono in for the input?

Asked by: ptbuzzcut
Yes, if you only have an LFE output simply use one RCA input on the amp and turn the crossover all the way up.

I like my music loud and clear. I run 2 pairs of main speakers dpending on mood and music. Dcm kx10 series 1's and Cerwin Vega! VS-120's. They are poered by a yamaha rx- v1050 rs at 110wpc conservtively. would this woofer keep up or shut off and overheat 

Asked by: PsychoSnake
If you are trying to add bass to a system with two pairs of large main speakers, you may need two SUB-1500's - even the big 15" model might not be enough for you if you just use one of them. A good rule of thumb for sizing a subwoofer is that the subwoofer driver's cone area should be equal to or greater than the cone area of your two main speakers combined, and the subwoofer's amplifier should be able to supply at least the same amount of power as both main speakers combined receive from the main amplifier.

i am happy with the quality of my 1500 powered sub can i put a dayton spa 250 in place of the plate amp that came on it. am i out of place to ask.  i have been very happy with everything ive got from yall i know i can just hook it up i dont get your reply

Asked by: tbear
You can replace the amplifier with the SPA250 although it will not specifically be beneficial. You will also have to modify the cabinet in order for the other amplifier to fit properly.

how would I hook this up if I wanted to use 4 of these? I really dont want to use RCA splitters.

Asked by: jeffdachef
IF you do not want to use a splitter you can use a distribution amp like in the link below,http://www.parts-express.com/ce-labs-av400-a-v-distribution-amp-4-out--180-006
