The Dayton comes highly recommended, but the Klipsch (previously out of my budget range) is on sale.

For how much?  The Dayton should be 140-50 shipped.

199.  see links above.  Is it worth the extra 50?

I had a chance to play a bit with a Sub-12 a couple of years ago. It seemed like a pretty decent sub - lots of power, reasonably good extension - although the colleague who bought it complained that it could get boomy. Then again, he had satellite speakers all around and was crossing over to the sub at ~120Hz. An 80Hz crossover should reduce (eliminate?) the possibility of boominess.

All that to say: For only $50 more, I'd take the Sub-12 over the well-rated SUB-1200.

Thanks, eljay!

 

Anyone else have experience with 1 or both subs?

 

The Klipsch is a little larger (a con for me), but it does have a 2-yr warranty (vs 1-yr for Dayton).

Response is 24-120 Hz for Klipsch and 25-140 Hz for Dayton.

FWIW:
- The Klipsch's FR rating of 24-120Hz has a variance of +/-3dB (IOW, 24Hz @ -3dB).
- The Dayton's FR rating of 25-140Hz has no variance. It likely doesn't extend below 30Hz @ -3dB.

A friend had a Sub1200 next to a Synergy-Sub10 and the Klipsch sounded a little thicker and deeper. The Dayton is fairly accurate for a 129.00 sub. Either should work well for the money.
