Dayton Audio SUB-1200 review

Dayton Audio SUB-1200 has 12-inch driver size vs Dayton Audio SUB-1500 – 15”. Holds a 30-hour range and a target of 25 before it falls. The ports are made well, so they guarantee a perfect connection with other devices and you won't hear any noise.

The subwoofer has a great unobtrusive textured black vinyl finish. You should understand that this device is relatively heavy and large. The front grille can be detached. The weight is over 46 pounds, so you should keep this in mind before buying it.
