Dayton SUB-1000L deserved the audience’s respect with its features and size. There is nothing special in its design just because mostly all subwoofers look the same – they are black and s...Read More
When testing and comparing Dayton Audio SUB-1000L vs Monoprice 9723 subwoofers, the functionality, power, and produced sound of Monoprice 9723 impressed me more than Dayton. First, Monoprice is more powerful. Second, it has better audio performance features, delivering the sound that lets enjoy any content, so I liked both listening to music and watching movies. Dayton Audio SUB-1000L copes with its functions well too, but when I compare it with Monoprice, I notice that its sound is less deep and powerful.
Monoprice 9723 surprises with its high-power equipment in a relatively small-size covering. The maximal output power reaches 200W versus 100W, which is twice less, in Dayton Audio SUB-1000L. Another essential point to compare is the subwoofers’ frequency response: Monoprice offers 50 – 250Hz and Dayton 32 – 140Hz. Thereby, Monoprice exceeds Dayton when it goes about higher frequencies, and I can say that listening to the same audio content using both woofers, I noticed that Monoprice’s sound is purer. Also, Monoprice has 115dB sensitivity that allows it to carry the load it receives easier compared with 85dB in Dayton.
Neither of the models provides wireless connectivity so they’re a bit limited in terms of portability. Nevertheless, there is a difference in the number of connectors: Monoprice has 5 and Dayton 2.
When it comes to choosing of one subwoofer versus the other, it is necessary to consider the size of a space where a woofer will be used. Dayton and Monoprice will sound excellently in small spaces, let’s say in a car or small-sized rooms. None of them is able to cover actually large spaces.
Monoprice 9723 and Dayton Audio SUB-1000L significantly differ in their design, except for the color, which is black in both cases. The first model is square with a big curved cabinet that makes it look gentle and kind of soft. Dayton Audio SUB-1000L has a rectangular shape. This is an important factor to consider when it’s necessary to install a sub. The units have 4 legs that allow them to stand firmly on a flat surface. All the controls and connectors are hidden in both models. Also, the subwoofers have a great advantage: they are waterproof.
The Monoprice 9723 is better subwoofer in this comparison. Check Monoprice 9723 price
