Hi everyone, I'm looking at a PSW110 (not the PSW10) available locally for $100 and was wondering how it compared to the Dayton Sub1200 for a little more at $110.

I know the Polk subs aren't highly regarded, but now that they're on an equal playing field in terms of cost, does one best the other?

There is no play room in budget here, I'm getting this to round out the lowends on a sound bar.
I've seen people mention these two together, but no real say on which is better than the other

Did I break protocol or does no one know?

I rarely read a good word about the low end Polks, but Jim Wilson just posted his review of the SUB1200 in the budget subwoofer thread, which seems to indicate while it is hardly an impressive performer, it isn't disastrous either.

Not sure about the Polk, but the SUB-1200 is well-rated for such an inexpensive sub.

In years past I have had some inexpensive Polk subs, still have a PSW 111 doing some light duty in a set up where strong deep bass isn't important. IMO they can be a little boomy but if used in a small room then they do okay for music. You seem to be getting a good deal on the Polk because Crutchfield has the PSW 110 for $249 right now.

 

I've never had a Dayton but I hear they are pretty respectable at their respective price points.
