I have a small sized living room (10'x15'), and I am looking for an affordable subwoofer to round out my Denon 1612 Infiniti P163 bookshelf 5.1 configuration. My use will be 60% music, 30% movies, 10% gaming and have narrowed down my search to these three choices. Their prices are not a whole lot different from each other, and I don't have the luxury of demoing them out, so curious what everyone's favorite is?

Dayton 1200 - $120
Velodyne VX-11 - $169
BIC F-12 - $200

Which one is your favorite??? biggrin.gif

My room is a little smaller than yours (maybe by a foot) and I've been running dual Bic America F-12's. I've really been impressed by them. Of course I haven't been exposed to SVS's of the sub world yet.......lol.

I was just researching this topic a few days back. You left one out - BIC Venturi V1020 @ $148 and V1220 @ $170.

I ruled out the Dayton due to hearing people say it was kinda sloppy. The F12 was out of my price range. I had narrowed my choices down to the V1020 and VX-11. But I decided not to get one and mod my current one, so I never decided between those two. I was leaning towards the VX-11, but wasn't positive. Usage for me is mostly music.
