A few days ago, I picked up a Klipsch KW-100 (http://www.klipsch.com/kw-100-subwoofer
) display model from Costco for $120 since it had been discontinued from stock.
I bought it because I have a Polk PSW10 I got some years ago, and people were telling me it is not good, except for the interesting comments here (http://www.diyaudio.com/forums/subwoofers/195774-polk-audio-psw10-worth-2.html
Both the KW-100 and PSW10 have low powered amps.
While looking for reviews on the KW-100 I found in the diyaudio.com forums reference to the Dayton Audio sub from Parts Express.
The current model budget Dayton which appears to have superior power ratings as well as user reviews is the Dayton Sub-1200 (http://www.parts-express.com/pe/showdetl.cfm?PartNumber=300-629
which has an AVS forum review: http://www.avsforum.com/t/1414577/dayton-sub-1200-review
So looking at the user reviews for the Sub-1200 and its amplifier specs (looks like 120watt nominal (not peak), it would appear that the Dayton is superior to the KW-100 for the same price.
I can still return the KW-100 to Costco, so should I return it and get the Dayton?
