Dayton UM-15-22 compared to what commercially?

I bought the kit from PE. SPA-1000 amp, UM-15-22 driver, and their 3 cu' flat pack box. Since I have around $700 into this project I am hoping it will outperform subs from SVS, HSU, in this price range. Is this the case?

It should be similar to a SVS PB-13 Ultra sealed.

It you had bought a inuke3000DSP instead you could have EQ'ed the subs and added another for not much more money, and would be even louder.


I use 6 UM-15's in my mains, they do good for the money...

I agree with BassThatHz in that you should have gone with the iNuke3000dsp amplifier for the EQ/DSP capabilities and the option to add another sub when funds permit. See if you can return that Dayton amp, and possibly go with the iNuke3000dsp, which may also be cheaper if you shoo around!

I wish I could-got it slightly used off of Fleabay. I had actually looked at the Inukes prior to getting the PA amp. Maybe I will try to resell it and get the Inuke. I currently have a 15" Dayton Reference HF sub in a ported box but with just the PE 230 watt plate amp powering it. If I had been thinking I could have used the Inuke to better power the Dayton HF.
