While I have no idea on this subwoofer, it's kinda big. Ordered an compact yamaha sub to to fit inside cabinet. But got this to compare.

Heard it, it's good. But I never owned property sub, so don't know good vs best vs okay. But it is big and I kept 20℅ volume. Anyone got this arena sub experience? Should I keep it?
If you like the JBL keep it. If not you can do better for another $30-$40 but it will likely be even bigger.
Dont know exactly what you mean but its not a good idea to put a sub inside a cabinet.

Was it open box because someone returned it? If so, I wouldn't be surprised - that sub appears to be rather lacking, something the previous owner probably found out in short order. For less money you could have gotten a new Dayton SUB-1200, which I'm sure would out perform the JBL.

Thanks.

It was a floor sample tagged $240. I will try the Dayton. I have another 12 days to return this sub.

Will Amazon RMA with return shipping if I buy Dayton from Amazon? I don't find it in bb for demo.

Cabinet:
Wife asked me to see if we can place the sub in the regular open entertainment center(no closures) bottom shelve (14"h).

But I am thinking about placing sub in room corner to avoid any rattling of devices on shelves.

From aesthetics, she asked me about yamaha YST-FSW050BL2. Is that any good?

I will order Dayton as it was most discussed in this thread. Among BIC America vs Dayton which one do you suggest? I think I will be happy with any upgrade to tv but want to buy sub once.

I doubt Amazon pays return shipping on products, but you never know. I don't think anyone sells the Dayton subwoofers but Dayton and Parts Express, but always use PE because they actually charge less than Dayton does for the exact same thing.

You obviously dont do much business with Amazon.
They pay return shipping on a lot of stuff.
They sell nearly anything. Dayton subs included.

Good tip about PE though.

Haven't done anything with them in awhile. Once they started charging state tax on purchases I went elsewhere.

There's a brilliant idea. Ever see who governs this state?

Got the Jamo J-12 today and am pretty impressed with it. Sounds good and is strong. This would be a tough sub to beat for $150. Better than the Dayton sub-1200 for sure and likely better than the Klipsch sub-12hg. I would have no problems recommending the J-12 at $150.
