Dayton Audio SUB-1500 15" 150 Watt Powered Subwoofer
Dayton Audio SUB-1500 15" 150 Watt Powered Subwoofer is rated 4.7586 out of 5 by 29.
Rated 5 out of 5 by from Bought 2 & sent 1 back 4 exchange,As the title say, I bought two and had to send one back. Prepaid by Parts Express (thanx) anyhow I now have the 2nd one wired and running and WOW. The house floor vibrates, I can feel my recliner vibrate, Nothing like a little butt tickle but don't they have butt kickers for that. Anyhow I am very impressed and do not regret the purchase. I am by no means an expert, Nor have I ever heard a 50,000 setup up but all told I am into speakers for 1100.00 USD I have 4 Infinity Primus 363 towers, Two 163 bookshelf and the pc351 center channel.

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.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from sub-1500I bought two of these behemoths and I had to send one back (not working). For the one that is still here, It works well. I presently have a 12 inch 120 watt Cerwin Vega and was happy with it till I upgraded my speakers to the Infinity Primus line. 4 tower, 2 bookshelf and the center speaker. Need more bass to keep up with them so I opted for 2 sub-1500's. I won't know the full extent of my system till they can ship a replacement but for now it rocks. I am hoping for a bit more low volume rocking so may upgrade to a new amp. A seller on Craigslist has a Dayton Audio SPA500 that he will let go for 160 Canadian. Just don't know what that will do for the subs and I will possibly need two amps if I buy it.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from FEELING IS BETTER THAN HEARING!Some subwoofers sound pretty good, but when your furniture vibrates and the dog is looking around to see what is happening, you know your subwoofer is just what you were looking for--that is the case for this 15" subwoofer--powerful bass that is felt--not intrusive--but powerful to the point of omg--highly recommend (hope you have thoughtful neighbors)

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Starting to dig deeper and hit harder!This sub is a great value... initially seemed alittle weak (underpowered) in my large theatre room... but after 25 hrs. of break-in time it is really starting to shine!!! I've got it corner loaded and find myself gradually turning the volume down on the sub amp each time I user this system. Great bang for the buck sub!

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Deep & RichIf you are looking for a quality product that is well priced try the Dayton Sub 1500 15". This unit has filled my AV room with the deep rich undertones I was looking for. Great addition to 7.1 setup. For the price there is not much out there that is comparable.

Dayton Audio SUB-1500 15" 150 Watt Powered Subwoofer

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.

warranty on this sub? I am choosing between this and the BIC Formula F-12 which is smaller but has equal reviews and a 5yr warranty . Didnt see anything about warranty on the dayton 15

Asked by: gentlejax
The enclosure and woofer have a five year warranty, the amplifier has a one year warranty.

The product description is pretty vague. Can someone fill in the following details? 1) What is the excursion rating on the driver? 2) What are the F3, and F12 specs? 3) How flat is the response curve below 80hz?

Asked by: Rich B
I would email Dayton. Someone did measure the sub1200 and it was impressively flat from 25-100. I would guess the excursion is around 7, the tune is 22 so you can plug the numbers with the enclosure size and guesstimate the f3. Remember throw isn't as important in a large ported design.
