Dayton Audio SUB-1500 vs BIC America F12

Dayton Audio SUB-1500 review

Dayton Audio SUB-1500 vs BIC America F12 is bigger. Dayton has 15-inch driver size, while F12 – 12”. The output power of the audio amplifier is 150 watts. The resistance is 4 ohms, and the frequency response range is from 23 Hz to 140 Hz. It also has an active amplifier.

The Dayton Audio SUB-1500 looks big and a bit aggressive. The rigid construction of this model eliminates any vibration. On the back panel are all the input ports that you may need (RCA LFE inputs, stereo line-level RCA inputs, and 2 speaker inputs and outputs).

BIC America F12 review

The subwoofer is provided with a 12-inch subwoofer and an amplifier with a working power of 150 watts. BIC America F12 has 475 W maximal power vs Dayton Audio SUB-1500 – 150 W. BIC F12 gives superior sound. It works well even at low volume when most subwoofers lose sound quality.

This sub is designed in a minimalist style. However, it looks like a classic black sub. Device controls are placed on the back metal panel. Below the controls are the Bass Reflex port. At the base of the case are four low cylindrical legs.
