I Live in Canada, and prices can get alittle out of control up here. I've spent the better part of two weeks auditioning subs like, Yamaha 8"/150 watt for $275, Mission 8"/150 for $350, Klipsch 10"/200 for $569. All seemed alittle expensive for what they were.After reading alot of good Dayton reviews, i decided to order it. Even after the exchange,shipping it was still cheaper than the Yamaha. I think i made the right choice, i am waiting to watch 007-Die another Day until my Dayton shows up......... Can't wait........Just thought i would share my excitement!. Quick question, I have hardwood floors, do you think i should place a piece of carpet under my sub when i get it?
