Bought 2 of these years ago at $150 each. Do not regret it.
This or the $150 Klipsch R-12SW 12" Costco deal?

When did the price jump?
Got a couple of these about six or seven years ago for about $120 or so.
For the money I'm a fan, I use them in a budget 7.2 home theater.

I bought a refurbished 15" about 6 months ago from them around this price. I thought it was defective but I just needed a 2 to 1 rca cable. Great buy and does what I need. Glad I didn't go all in on a $400 sub because lord knows the rabbit holes after that

Don't know why all the hype for the Costco deal, somethings up there. This Dayton SUB-1200 is better than the Klipsch, even though just slightly but is also at a lower price.

I haven't heard the klipsch, but I own this dayton and for the price, it's very hard to beat.

Excellent! I'd wanted one of these when I finished my surround setup last year but it had slipped my mind. I'll take a slight discount!

Swear I bought this a few years back on sale for about 100 even - even so this is still a pretty good price for a more than adequate sub for medium to reasonably large rooms. Not the most subtle sub but if oomph if what you re after - it's hard to beat this for the price IMHO. Like oahumike said though - make sure you have the right cable.

Don't own this, but in general the Parts Express Dayton stuff is good for the money.
