Product Details

Dayton SA230/2VS8 Dual Subwoofer System Amplifier Bundle

Dayton Audio's SA230/2VS8 dual subwoofer package includes two modern low-profile subwoofers and a powerful stand-alone amplifier for a combination that promises to be heard but not seen. The Dayton Audio VS8 was designed and engineered to work specifically with the SA230 amplifier for clean and punchy bass that enhances any home audio system. Having two VS8s working together means more bass to fill up your room, while utilizing the full potential of the SA230 amplifier.

Each VS8 subwoofer system contains an 8" long-throw dual voice coil driver. The complex bass reflex design utilizes a flared port to produce much more bass than expected from such a small enclosure. The omni-directional dispersion characteristics and shallow enclosure of this subwoofer facilitate limitless placement options. The VS8 fits between wall studs, and is easy to install (requires a Dayton Audio VS8IG in-wall mounting kit, coming soon!). Place underneath or behind furniture in a down-firing position using the included rubber feet, which elevate the subwoofer and protect surfaces. The VS8 is finished in a dark brushed aluminum-look vinyl wrap that complements any décor.

The Dayton Audio SA230 amplifier delivers all of the clean, solid power required to drive two VS8's to their full potential. Its tabletop design is compatible with many other popular electronic devices and different styles of multimedia furniture. This amplifier is engineered to provide high fidelity subwoofer amplification and is tailored for home audio and home theater audio systems. Its variable gain, bass boost, crossover frequency, and phase adjustment guarantee perfect integration with any audio system in any listening environment. Short circuit and thermal overload protection are included.

How should I connect 2 VS8 to this SA230?

Asked by: yklivan
Each VS8 has two terminals which will need to be wired in series creating an 8 ohm load on each subwoofer. The two subwoofers will then be wired in parallel to the amplifier for a 4 ohm overall load. The manual for the VS8 describes this wiring, you will want to use the 8 ohm single channel wiring guide on each subwoofer.

Can this system play low enough for home theater use and accurate enough for music play back ? I noticed the amp has a bass boost @25-50hz can the subs play anything below 35hz? Will they work in a 7.2 setup?

Asked by: NCaudio2
Based on the frequency response I would say this system is tuned somewhere between 35-40 Hz. Any boost below this frequency will cause the driver to unload and probably bottom out easily so it is not recommended. These will probably not play much lower than 35 Hz.

Do you have rack mounting accessories for amp?

Asked by: RKoster
I have included some rack ears that should work with this amp. I caution, that while this amp is well built, it is not "road worthy" per se. I suggest you use a shelf rack with some padding to buffer the bounce it will experience--unless it's for home use.

2 channel use

I want to use these for a 2 channel setup. Am I correct with the following ? Singnal from the reciever to speaker level in, Speaker level out to the floor standing speakers. How and where do the 2 subwoofers connect. I don't see 2 subwoofer connections on the sub amp.Also will any harm be done by laying the subs on thier sides ? Thanks
Asked by: sbinrc
The subwoofers will have to be wired series/parallel together and plugged into the single output on the amplifier. Having them on their sides will not hurt anything.
