Member cytoSiN sent me a PM about my Dayton Audio T1204K 12" Titanic Mk 4, 500 Watt RMS Subwoofer Kit
Been following your home theater thread. It looks great! I wanted to follow up to see how you liked the Titanic sub kit. Also, does the Mk4 subwoofer have the goofy "D" logo on it, or is it blank? The pics in your thread are great, and I'm assuming they show the Mk4, not the Mk3 they sent you the first time, so I'm assuming it's blank, but wanted to be sure.
I realized I never shared my observations with the masses here is my reply
In a word Awesome the MK4 kit was so easy to do. There is No D on the cone. That is the MK4 in the finished picture of it in the theater room. I read all of the user comments at parts express and they are on the money as noted from some reviews I had 2 retaining nuts for the driver which were preinstalled push through when I was tightening them. They were on opposite sides so I think this will not be an issue as the driver is nice in tight. I did add a bag of Polly from Wal-Mart which may be over kill but reading many speaker build threads stating that will help lower the F3. I like the equalizer on the Amp since I purchased the same amp to fix my JBL I was able to dial them in using the Audessy in my Denon X4000 Amp. For what it is worth the Audessy in my opinion dialed them in way to flat. Research from many threads indicate that is how it is supposed to be they say give it a week it will grow on you but I like more base and raised it by 6db in the AVR. The Audessy has you dial the base down to 75db which is not even 1/3 on the dial then it sets the level of all your speakers. After the alignment both of the bases were -9db in the AVR so I raised them to -3db. I also turned up the base on the plate amp to about 11 o’clock but that was too much and I returned it back to 1/3 on the dial. I then set the equalizer on the plate amp for 25hz and set it to wide and tuned that up by 5 db. All and all it is a great little sub. We were watching Man of Steel over the weekend. On Friday my Wife went to bed early and next day she said the rumbling kept her awake. I still have not finished my door yet but that may or may not contain the base.
