I've had my home theater system since 1997. My first subwoofer was from Boston Acoustics. Second one from Velodyne. Both of them pretty pricey. When the Velodyne started to fail after 8 years of use I looked again at Velodyne. Then one reviewer pointed me to this product.
My first thought was the same as yours: How can this be any good? But I read the reviews and they seemed plausible. And, at this price it was an impulse buy. Add to that Dayton offered a 60 day return policy and I just had to click on "Buy".
The first thing you notice about this unit is that it's HEAVY. 46 pounds. I had to slide it across the floor as it was to heavy, big and awkward for me to carry. The next thing you notice is that it's big. Much bigger than my 12" Velodyne was. Other than that it looks like a subwoofer. Inputs/outputs for your 4 corner speakers, if you so choose, and dual RCA jack inputs for your sub input. Add a volume control and a crossover dial and that's it.
Then I played some music. I was hooked. I also watched Man of Steel and couldn't believe my ears. The lows weren't so loud as much as Icould feel them. My body could feel the vibrations. It was bass unlike anything I've heard from my Onkyo receiver.
I'm very glad I picked this product. I know you will too.
These subwoofers do not hit well into the very low end (30hz down) and that was the dead spot I was trying to fill, abeit on a 300$ budget as a result of buying relatively high end speakers. These preform very well in the 50-60hz range, although they seem to be tuned at lower. The amp is well matched to the sub, even at full blast you will rarely hear a clip. Port chuffing is minimal, but present. 2 of these will rattle the windows at half power being run off a denon svr1000 receiver, I promise you. They are relatively quick for 12" subs, playing thrash metal kick drums 90% in time. I did end up getting a klipsh reference series 15" to scratch the 30hz down itch I have, but for their budget these are phenomenal overall!
I listen to mainly hard rock and heavy metal music, with a little bit of techno thrown in. This can handle it all with great power and clarity. But it doesn't overpower the regular speakers, it blends right it and really adds to it.
For movies it really adds to the low-end, shaking my chair from across the room without distortion. It really helps draw you into the movie by adding realism that you can't get without a sub.
I also think that it looks ok, too. There's no badging on it, except for the back that you won't see anyways. This allows it to blend in with my other speakers without drawing attention to it.
Overall I'm really impressed with this sub, and would certainly recommend it to anyone looking for a high performance, no nonsense sub that won't break the bank.
