  3. Dayton HO 12 vs Ultimax 10 for small sealed HT build?

    DIY Subwoofers - General Discussion
    I'm working on a small home theater and I want to tackle the subs. I've got spouse approval for dual subs if I keep them small, so I'm thinking ~1 cut ft sealed with some DSP. Keeping in mind that for me smaller is better... am I better off with two HO 12's or two Ultimax 10's? I havent settled...

    Home Audio Subwoofers
    Please forgive me... I have sinned and broken all the rules. I know not what I'm doing. I purchased several weeks back a pair of Dayton 12" subs for the ridiculous price of $160 for BOTH after reading Jmans excellent review. They sound very good and I'm very pleased with them as they are...

  19. New Dayton 12' for $148 or used Velodyne Impact 10 for $160

    Home Audio Subwoofers
    I normally get great advice on this forum so just wondering if anyone has tried these and can offer some advice on which will be a better option.
