Dayton Audio SUB-1500 15" 150 Watt Powered Subwoofer is rated 4.76 out of 5 by 25.
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.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from So far, So goodI have only had this for about 24 hours and have had it breaking in ever since. In that little time , it is already exactly what I was hoping for . I have a PSW 10 " hooked up as well and this 15 fills in everything so nice. I turned the PSW 10 way down and the crossover all the way up . It really fills up some of that mid bass without having the dang port noise you get from it at low frequencies. Now about the Sub-1500, it doesn't punch you with that "pop" that I'm sure a much more expensive sub would, but wow does it fill in that low end with the rumble you can feel . I don't know any of the numbers or if this is living up to to the advertised stats, but I can say that I am very satisfied and am looking forward to more tuning and breaking in .

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Amazing. How is it so cheap??I have used this about 3 weeks now and after set up it is amazing. Truly a game changer, had 1 then 2 8" Polk/Klipsch powered subs and they were nice, but the biggest difference in the 15" is that you feel the base, the 8" you could always tell when the sub kicked in and turned on, with this monster it is hard to tell, I actually couldn't until I pulled the power on it and noticed the difference.Only downside is it is HUGE..so plan for it accordingly. Very impressed.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from For under $200!?This sub is incredible especially for under $200. I stumbled upon it when looking for reviews on BIC and Klipsch subs in a few forums and this makes me wonder how I even thought my Polk PSW10 was a sub at all! Awesome deep base and clear tones accompany my Klipsch setup. Very happy and I highly recommended if you're looking for an amazing budget sub.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Big Step up From HTIB SubCompared to a HTIB subwoofer, Its amazing. This is my first powered subwoofer ever. Im gonna buy another one soon. The bass is excellent for gaming and movies. For music its great also. Especially for rap music and rock. I've never turned this thing up loud enough to really test the sound but at volume 11 on my receiver, Im satisfied.

Hello, 2 questions.  1: is there any delay or decay in sound using the transmitter for wireless?  2: I am on a budget but consider myself a poor audiophile.   Would this sub give me faithful reproduction.?

Asked by: rjlaman
There will be no obvious latency issues using the wireless system with this subwoofer. These should suit most everyone's needs as long as they are properly implemented in the system.

I currently have one Dayton Sub 1200 in a fairly living room with a pretty open/large floorplan. I want to add a second Dayton sub and was thinking will a Dayton 1500,  combine well with the existing 1200, or should I just get a second 1200 instead?

Asked by: Kurtz
You should be just fine going with a Sub 1200 or the Sub 1500.

When setting the gain knob, is there a point I shouldn't go past in order to avoid audible/perceptible distortion/compression, i.e.. 66% to max gain? 

Asked by: Philimon
It will depend on the input signal level. Most amplifiers will start to clip around 1 o'clock or so, but this is not a standard thing. In most cases the gain will only need to be around 10-11 o'clock for good output levels.
