Man, I keep changing my views on subwoofers. Thanks, avs.
LOL, there is no way I'm getting 4 subs. Two maximum is my preference especially for my room size. No room next to tv for subs. I will not sacrifice optimal placement of my front p363's to squeeze in a couple more subs.
For now, I'm waiting for the rw-12d to come back on sale. But dual dayton sub-1200's is intriguing if it performs similarly to the bic f12 and polk psw505. I know price doesn't always equal value. Hell, I think my infinity p363 plays fantastic for its price. My koss ksc-75 and panasonic rp-htf600 headphones were both super cheap and sound great. Plasma tv cheaper than lcd, love my panny plasma.
But something that is giving me pause with the rw-12d is will I get balanced sound. Since the rw-12d is fairly large, I may just have to settle with one. Two in my room may look too big, perhaps dual sub-1200's may be pushing it too.
I was at fry's today briefly listening to some subwoofers. As each sub played, I started moving a bit around and the bass changed dramatically, kind of reinforced my thought on duals balancing out the sound. A lot of force right in front of the front facing driver as well, gave me a thought on how would dual dayton sub-1200's sound pointed straight to my dome, LOL. I probably would be very limited on rw-12d placement. Maybe I can't point it straight to my dome.
I don't know what the crossover was set on some of the subs I listened to including the klipsch 15" subwoofer. By the way, the klipsch 15" looked massive, I don't think I can fit one of the larger subs like outlaw ex.
Now thinking about, dual dayton sub-1200's pointed straight towards my eardrums vs a single klipsch rw-12d?
Dayton duals: Pros - cheaper, balanced sound, smaller size. Cons - less extension, can't find measurements, less reviews
Klipsch rw-12d: Pros - better bass quality/extension. Cons - more expensive, maybe can't fit duals, less placement options
I just haven't seen many direct comparisons between the dayton sub-1200 vs other budget subs. I have tried looking too.
