Budget Subs: Klipsch KW-100 vs Dayton Audio Sub-1200 vs Polk PSW10 ?
[I've also posted this on Avs forum, but I know you guys are much more technical]
A few days ago, I picked up a Klipsch KW-100 (Klipsch KW-100 Subwoofer - Subwoofers) display model from Costco for $120 since it had been discontinued from stock.
I bought it because I have a Polk PSW10 I got some years ago, and people were telling me it is not good, except for the interesting comments here (Polk Audio PSW10 worth it?)
Both the KW-100 and PSW10 have low powered amps.
While looking for reviews on the KW-100 I found in the diyaudio.com forums reference to the Dayton Audio sub from Parts Express.
The current model budget Dayton which appears to have superior power ratings as well as user reviews is the Dayton Sub-1200 (Dayton Audio SUB-1200 12" 120 Watt Powered Subwoofer 300-629)
which has an AVS forum review: Dayton Sub-1200 Review
So looking at the user reviews for the Sub-1200 and its amplifier specs (looks like 120 watt rms nominal (not peak, I think??), it would appear that the Dayton is superior to the KW-100 for the same price.
I can still return the KW-100 to Costco, so should I return it and get the Dayton?
I forgot to mention that I have an electrical engineering degree (haven't done any hardware or audio hardware in decades) so if I were not lazy I could have put a different parts express amplifier plate on the PSW10 with maybe a better speaker for the same $120 price. I also am out of work right now, so that is why I have not been looking at more expensive subwoofers.
