This is a great option for people who value good bass sound and the Dayton Audio SUB-1500 specs prove it. The audio amplifier output power is 150 W. The impedance is 4 Ohms, while the frequency response range is from 23 Hz to 140 Hz. Therefore, this model is compatible with various setups. However, the wide crossover frequency range (from 40 Hz to 140 Hz) allows making it an inseparable part of any audio setup. It also features an active amplifier. This model also has the phase switch which allows you to choose between 0 and 180 degrees settings. The power switch has three modes – on/auto/off. The gain dial allows you to change the volume level. All dials and switches are extremely easy to reach, so you can tweak everything without any problems.

Many customers who use this model claim that this subwoofer is extremely powerful and it outputs the deep and natural sound. Some clients prefer to compare this 15-inch model with the 10-inch model and they state that the difference is huge and the Dayton Audio SUB-1500 leaves no notes untouched – it perfectly handles the lowest frequencies, so everything starts rattling. However, some customers claim that it is a great option for movies, but not the best one when it comes to music. You can play with the settings to get the right sound, but you will have to do for each individual album. Some customers also claim that this subwoofer sounds very good, but the frequency response starts to roll off quickly around 30 Hz
