I think that Jamo is calling your name Joe.

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

I doubt the J-12 would compare well to the Klipsch. Now the J-112 is very comparable and I even prefer it over the sub-12. Of course the J112 is a more expensive sub, but I did catch it on sale at Amazon for $189 and got a pair of them.

Brent Butterworth recently did a budget sub shootout and the Monoprice 9723 came out on top. This shootout did include the Dayton sub-1500, but not the Klipsch sub-12hg. The Monoprice sub is $108 plus shipping.

Got a link Mix? I wonder if anyone ever used the 1200 for movies? I'm sure it struggles though. I've only used them for music.

This was posted a week or so on the other budget sub thread. Credit to original poster. Very interesting comparisons, but some of the usual suspects weren't involved in the shootout. http://thewirecutter.com/reviews/best-budget-subwoofer/

Those PB1000 are nice aren't they! Maybe if things get better I can get a second one, along with a house.

Pretty solid for a shared space family room. Once I have my dedicated theater space, there will be new purchases.

Did you guys see this article from the Wirecutter about best budget subs? The guy doing the recommendations is very well respected with incredible experience.

tl;dr the winner was the Monoprice 9723. Anyone have experience with that?

it was discussed in another thread
it used msrp, so many of the subs suggested here were not covered (example sub12hg, polk 505)
as they only meet the price when on sale

For a budget sub it does alright with music. This is if you keep the XO at 80Hz or lower, 70Hz even better. Anything over that and it starts to sound more bloated and overpowering to the speakers.
