Dayton Audio T1204K 12" Titanic Mk 4 500 Watt RMS Subwoofer Kit

Dayton Audio's 12" Titanic Mk 4 Subwoofer System combines power and musicality, and offers excellent all-around performance for serious home theaters or music listening setups. The modestly sized enclosure will fit into most rooms, yet the system's deep and powerful bass will dramatically enhance any application. A powerful SPA500 500 watt amp and long-excursion Titanic Mk 4 driver allow this system to achieve in-room SPLs of 110 dB, with output down to 25 Hz. Amplifier features stereo line-level as well as LFE input, variable low-pass crossover, full parametric EQ, and auto on/off. Also available fully assembled.

Dayton Audio designed the Titanic Mk 4 subwoofer kits to give you the performance you demand, at a price that makes plain common sense. Why buy a mass-market subwoofer that often has a markup of well over 10 times the cost of the parts? If you are lucky, you are getting a $20 woofer and a $20 amplifier. With the Titanic subwoofer kits, you know exactly what you are getting -- nothing but the best in cabinets, drivers, and amplifiers. 

Each system features one of our legendary Titanic Mk 4 subwoofer drivers -- U.S.A.-built behemoths known for their excellent build quality and awesome low frequency performance. The driver is precisely mated with a high-power Dayton Audio amplifier that exploits the woofer's massive potential and provides the best sound quality and highest output levels. 

Driver and amp are housed in a rigid, acoustically inert 3/4" MDF enclosure featuring an internal brace, a special satin-textured enamel finish, 1/4" roundovers on all edges, and a 1" thick MDF grill. Black chrome spikes, included with the system, rigidly couple the cabinet to the floor for improved bass clarity and output, while also adding a very classy and elegant touch. The finished systems are unobtrusive in appearance, but deliver awesome bass performance that is truly "titanic" in proportion. 

Titanic systems are available in an easily assembled kit form that requires a few basic hand tools and approximately one hour to complete. A subwoofer driver, amplifier, and custom cabinet are included, along with instructions and all necessary hardware. The cabinet itself is ready-to-go because the hard work has already been done: driver cutout, amplifier cutout, pre-installed T-nuts for driver mounting, and pre-installed T-nuts for the floor spikes.

Dayton Audio T1204K 12" Titanic Mk 4 500 Watt RMS Subwoofer Kit is rated 4.5714 out of 5 by 14.
Rated 5 out of 5 by from Dayton T1204K 12" subwooferThis is my 4th dayton titanic. The first one I bought, 12" titanic about 12 years ago. Sold it to a friend and up graded to 15" titanic for the bonus room. Then bought 10" titanic for music. Son needed a sub, so I gave him the 10" titanic. Now I have a 12" T1204K For my music. These sub are the best you can find for the money , and they beat out a lot of the competition costing twice as much.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from There it isI bought this for my home theater. The kit went together easily (and I'm not handy). I took it down and hooked it up. Setting the level is a bit of a challenge. Because its new, you want to hear it all the time. That led to me jumping off the couch to turn it down when the amp was clipping. What you need is a DVD moment with a big bass note. What I used was Cirque Du Soleil - Worlds Away. At the very end, just before the credits there is a boom. Played it several times until I tamed it. I probably have the experts cringing at my crude methods, but it worked. The sub blends with the speakers now, but the bottom is so much lower than it was with my 100hz specials. Very satisfying sound. Very glad I have it!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Shock and AweI was quite surprised with the combination of depth and accuracy of the bass produced with this subwoofer. I've listened to many subs and some are great and some are not. The 12" Titanic Mk IV is easily comparable to high end subs costing thousands, and it readily outperforms a number of them. My sub, used for music as opposed to home theater, has seen less than a week's use and it still needs some break-in time. Nevertheless, I'm hearing clear output certainly below 30 Hz. Taking the time to find the proper positioning in your room and setting the sub's parametric EQ are tedious processes, but are well worth the effort. The true test was a recording of the William Tell Overture performed by the Cincinnati Pops Orchestra laid down on a Telarc CD. This CD has an extremely wide frequency range and it can tax even powerful amplifiers. My equipment consists of late 80's Adcom pre and power amps into modified JBL towers. Without overpowering the performance whatsoever, the sub provides lows that I'd never known were there, and does so effortlessly and tightly. The experience is almost indescribable, and is felt as much as it is heard. The substantial bass truly augments and enhances my listening experiences, and I'm thrilled that I purchased this sub.Assembly was pretty straight forward with some minor thoughts: I would advise anyone to change the order of assembly suggested. I would first cut the foam damping precisely to each side, then glue in place (I used a hot glue gun for this, which worked well). Next I would mount the driver, before mounting the plate amp. When I tried to mount the driver from the front, the screws pushed the t-nuts out of their holes and into the enclosure. I removed the amp and mounted the driver by holding the t-nuts in place with my hand, via the amp cutout. It was easy to make the wiring connections with the driver already mounted. I also added poly foam over the amplifier in the enclosure, and swapped the trendy floor spikes for some leveling feet. For this I had to remove the pre-mounted metric screw-in nuts and replace them with a standard 12-24 size, but this was easy. I would advise using gasket tape under the driver flange and caulking up the four foot holes. If you're at home using tools, this project is simple.The quality, performance and value are all excellent and the Titanic 12" Mk IV subwoofer kit is highly recommended.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from THEE ABSOLUTE BEST!, HANDS DOWN!I bought these subwoofers 9 years ago, two mk3 titanic 12's, for my house stereo, in some home made cabinets, took them out and replaced them with a lower watt sub cause my reciever wouldnt push them, they sat in a basement for 2 years, grabbed them and brought them to my studio wich we used them for about 3 years, as subwoofers with a QSC2450 amplifier, so they had power, we were floored that they filled more space than the 18 inch b52 dual sub we had, after that i lost intrest in the studio and put them in my car, for 4 more years! with a 2500 Watt class d Soundstream amp, beat like no other, hair trick and all... put them threw death n Back no lie, I even thought I blew them up one time, but the magnet slid down on the voice coil from me driving over the train tracks constantly by my house, tore them apart peice by piece, and put them back together with stronger glue, after I realized that the voicecoil was fine after having a magnet sit on it while pumpin prolly 1200 Watts into it while the magnet was holding the cone from moving, all glued back together and I still have them to this day... i would buy these over and over again, as long as you sell them, i have been through so many subs, you wouldnt believe me if i told u... from Pioneer to Lanzar, to orion 's to crystal comps... they will never stand up to the quality and sound that these subs deliver after the damage i put them through... THEE BEST SUBWOOFER EVER MADE. DONT BOTHER WITH ANYTHING ELSE, THIS IS ALL YOU NEED... LITERALLY. They should have A lifetime warranty, because they will outlive you i promise. i am impressed every day I jump in my car and know im hittin about 152 decibals with a pair of Twelves I purchased almost 10 years ago. TITANIC IS WHAT THEY ARE, EVERYTHING ELSE IS AT THE BOTTOM OF THE OCEAN.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Overall a great powered subIam really happy with this powered sub,There is nothing cheap about it. All materials, including the cabinet and damping material are a quality product. The sound is excellent tight and accurate.The amp is very quiet and runs cool.I originally had the a/c cord plugged into the wall outlet and had a lot of hum noise,but i then plugged it into my surge protector and it all went away.The only negative thing is the grill dosent clear the woofer,but iam pretty handy and can fix that.I would definitly recommend it.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Excellent Sound, Plenty of Power, Very Nice SubI have purchased a couple of subs in the past for around the same price (Definative, Velodyne)The crisp solid sound and power beats them hands down.I can only say one negative thing. When building the sub one of the pre-drilled holes did not line up. Tighten down all the others real tight and left it out.I have and will recommend to my friends.

Dayton Audio T1204K 12" Titanic Mk 4 500 Watt RMS Subwoofer Kit

Can I buy the Titanic 12" driver separately?

Asked by: JLundmark
Unfortunately the woofers have been discontinued. The only remaining woofers we have are for these kits.

The instructions advise that i need to remove & rotate the fuse 180 deg for 230V (for Australia). The amp also says I need a T4AL not the T8AL. Would you please confirm the req'd orientation of the fuse holder for 230V & and if i can use the T8AL. Thanks

Asked by: LTuffin
There is a small marking on the fuse holder itself that specifies the voltage with a small arrow next to it. There is also a small arrow on the bottom lip of the fuse/plug housing. The 220/240 voltage marking arrow needs to line up with the arrow on the housing. Basically flip the fuse holder 180 degrees from how it was when you unboxed it. I would not recommend using the supplied 8 amp fuse since it will not provide adequate protection for the amplifier.

Could this be mounted in the floor?

Specifically, could this be mounted flush (or slightly lower than flush) to the floor between the floor joists, but firing upward into the room, and perform the same as if it were sitting in the room? I don't have the time / patience / money to build an IB subwoofer but am trying to clear floor space and take advantage of the crawlspace under my listening room.
Asked by: Donkeyshins
Sure. Go for it.
