    I recently bought the PB10 and am happy with the bass output for the price. I have my HT in the family room which is 15x20. There have been complaints about amp failures on the jbl sub.

    I also have the JBL PB10 subwoofer. For the price, you can not find a better sub. Nice DEEP bass and great lows. I am using an Onkyo TXSR-501 receiver, and it sounds wonderful!! [​IMG]

    I have not heard the dayton 10" but the JBL is very good for the price. The only reason I didn't go with that sub is because of the amp quality issues.

    I have a pb-10 also, it was okay when corner loaded. IMHO it was horrible for music though, very unnatural. It made me and several friends frown when played with music. It has been in a box in the basement ever since I finished my first shiva ebs. I never had any reliability issues with it though.

    Edit:
    It was a nice size though, especially when compared to the 142L shiva.

    Are you talking about the auto on/off problem? That was only on the old subwoofer, not the new one. To tell you the truth I'd be more worried about the amp in the JBL. I don't know if the PB line has a history of problems but I know many of the previous lines of JBL subs have had a history of bad amps.

    I've only heard the original Dayton 10" sub and it was amazing at what it could do for only $100. If the new version is anything like the old one, it's quite a bargain. It's performance is probably equal to many subs that sell ~$200-250.

    No, I'm talking about bad amps too. Too many that just stop working after a while.
