I own the Klipsch SW-450. I purchased it years ago and don't use it now but it's a very good starter sub for a small/medium room.


Agreed, it should still be better than most anything that comes with a htib.

I think monoprice has a new sub, don't remember seeing this and no reviews.

From the site -

This subwoofer features a large, 12" front-firing paper cone with rubber surround and an equally massive 250-watt built in power amplifier to drive it. It handles frequencies from 30 ~ 150 Hz @ -10dB, with a total harmonic distortion less then 0.5%

■ Samsung (PN51F8500)
■ Sony (BDP-S590)
■ Yamaha (RX-V475)
■ Pioneer (BS22□C22)
■ SVS (PB-1000)
SVS (PC12-NSD)
■ PS4□PS3 Slim 120gb□Xbox One

Assuming that's 250 RMS it's not a bad deal.
Interesting that it's dual ported. Wonder if it's ok to plug one or both ports to change the tuning.

Is it just me, or does that sub bear a striking resemblance to the Lava LSP12? One things for sure, I hope the frequency response is a typo; 30 ~ 150 Hz, -10dB. That's awful for a $250 bass reflex subwoofer with a 12" driver.

If you take yourself too seriously expect me to do the exact opposite

I was going to buy 2 Dayton 1200s but they're out of stock until 2/10/15. Can anyone recommend me something that's equivalent to that in that price range?

Dayton has a sub1500 15" . I'm sure it doesn't put out like 2 12" but I just bought one and it sound pretty dang goo in a little room. Eventually I'll get a second. They are only 199 with free shipping.

Should I get 2 sub1000 or 1 1500 and then later down the road get another 1500? Anything else better than the 1500 in the $200 range do you know?

Buy the one 1500 and get another later. For $200, I do not believe anything else is even close.

that's my plan. 1 15 now one later. 2 12 are also good. Hard to beat either. Nothing at 199 comes close. Very good quality. Sounds very good. 2 12 for 200 or 2 15 for 400.
