The first link to the 12" sub is very similar to HSU VTF-2 MK3.

Pretty good for $390 and free shipping.....vardo

They are probably all HSU subs with Dayton logos. Specs are usually changed for marketing reasons, lower price= lower value.

I would guess they are using Dayton drivers and amps.

I don't think so. Just the names where changed to protect the innocent.

That would certainly be interesting....and incredible value. I was just thinking Dayton could lower the cost by using their own stuff.

True. But then it wouldn't really be an HSU subwoofer.

That's why it is called "Dayton HSU12 12" Powered Subwoofer"


"Dayton Audio, known for producing maximum bang for the buck subwoofers, has enlisted the expertise of world-renowned subwoofer designer Dr. Hsu to create the Dayton Audio Elite subwoofer line."

I'm in the market for a new sub, and have been contemplating the SVS PB12-NSD. That is $599 plus shipping. This Dayton (HSU designed) is more than $200 cheaper, with no shipping.


Probably nobody has heard these Daytons, or maybe they have, and compared it to an SVS PB12. Wonder if the extra 200+ for the SVS is worth it?

The HSU is a good deal not to pass up. They must be a rebadged VTF-2 MK3. They were highly praised and you should go for it. The price is outstanding.

I'm still not convinced that they are just rebadged Hsus.


Be careful with the free shipping...read the fine print. It is $50 credited towards shipping.

Well, let's ask Peter. Peter, can you give us a clue or confirmation?

Out of stock. Boo =(

Available 1/2/08......I can wait. Just need to detemine more about it. I noticed the HSU VTF-2 MK3 has a 350W amp, the one on Dayton's website only has 250....so it appears it's not a rebadged HSU VTF-2 MK3. Not sure that matters much though.

The HSU VTF-2 MK3 is 250 watts, the older VTF3 MK2 were 350 watts, so these could be rebadged units.
