Dayton Audio SUB-800 Review and Specs

Dayton Audio SUB-800 Dayton products come from DIY pedigree and professional audio, where performance and durability are essential. The value of this entire submarine line is obvious. This cheap little subwoofer can rattle in a small house if you want it. If you place the Dayton Audio SUB-800 on a hard floor, it will pass right through the output port. There is a reason why he leaves the box with a phase set to 180 °, this port will use your floor to enhance the bass, even if it is a little dirtier.

Features

Dayton Audio SUB-800 specs have a bottom-firing, flared port, bass reflex design for reduced port noise and increased bass response. It also utilizes a long-throw 8" woofer and up to 80 watts of house-shaking power. The frequency response is 40-140 Hz. Simple setup of SUB-800 and the ability to align the lower part to your taste with the help of amplification and crossover. In addition, the “auto power on” feature does not seem to work very well with the SUB-800 settings, in the sense that if the volume is not increased, the signal is often not strong enough to cause the device to turn on.

Design and build

The cabinet is solidly built and looks great. No cheap craftsmanship here. The only thing you should pay attention to is the surround speaker. This is really tough foam, I would prefer rubber for durability. For the price, this is a terrific sub. This is a hard little thing. Landing and decoration of excellent quality. For its size and price this is a great deal. It will not strike at these ultra-low 30 Hz sub notes, but is not intended. It is ideal for small 2.1 or 5.1 systems for music or movies. This compact sub is finished in an unobtrusive black vinyl that will complement any decor.

Connectivity

The amplifier features high and low level inputs and high level outputs, a phase switch, independent volume control, an auto on/off switch (activated by an input signal) and a variable 12 dB electronic low pass filter. The mix of high and low inputs and outputs makes this perfect as a base unit for an office sound system. It can be described as a budget audiophile's dream.
