Reviving this old thread...this deal was definitely NO DEAL....completely misleading description...I also got fooled into buying just the Sub1000 at retail price...I could have saved money and bought from parts express or amazon when It was on sale. I can't believe basically "no name" Dayton speakers and sub would be listed on massdrop at the same price as amazon...what a waste of my time and money. BUYER BEWARE.
Also received just the sub, massdrop leaving money on the table. Would have bought it all if the options were better. I will of course read better from now on and consider the descriptions to be akin to a skill testing questions.
Funny enough even the packing slip says: 1 x Dayton Audio B652-AIR Speakers & SUB-1000 MODEL OPTIONS: SUB-1000
Lets give this to 100 people and poll what everyone thinks they would expect to find in the shipment.
Anyway all good, I don't expect anything I'm glad I am not missing anything as I've thought. Please reconsider how you word and create drop down options.
I also only recd the sub after contacting MD and not getting anywhere despite the wording in their site about adding the sub for $65 I simply took a screen shot of the offer and send to my CC who canceled the transactio.N. 2 or 3 days latter I got a prepaid UPS label to send the sub back from MD
Got my package today! :) ... Opened the box and only saw the sub :'( ....Did they ship separately? I don't see any other shipping notices.

The speakers were ok at 49.99. They're typically priced as such when it goes on any type of sale over at partsexpress. The same goes for the sub at 119.99. What would've make this a great deal was getting both at 119.99 because I can get a 100 watt 10" Polk sub (about the same quality) for around 70. So I see "+1 "for "$65" extra a good deal (but only a good deal, not some crazy steal). Thus it never occurred to me that it was only for the sub. I was planning stripping out the amp and speakers for parts to build an old school arcade cabinet. Oh well... I still have a like a ton of extra speaker parts from PE, so not that mad about it.
they definitely mislead us...like you said normally everything is tiers (+1)….what a waste.
Darn! Sadly, I fell asleep before joining this drop. Does this run often?
Hi Everyone!
Would I need anything else (cables, devices, amps) or are these speakers/sub plug and play?
If I need an amp, can anyone recommend one?
So many things wrong with the advertising of this deal.... These bookshelf speakers are $40-ish at Parts Express.... The header on this deal says 49.99 for speakers AND SUB with free shipping. Then as you dive in to order, it's not $49.99 for speakers AND sub... Okay.... So add the sub for $65 on top of the $49.99 and come up with...... $120? I passed 3rd grade so I can say definitively that the math doesn't work there. There's nothing NOT shady about the advertising of this deal. Disappointing.

That doesn't work. The situation in the story doesn't give you all of the information. If you had read more than just the title of the drop, you wouldn't have been "mislead". Honestly, if you make up your mind about something based on the title, you deserve to be disappointed.
ZacharyBinz
Nah. It works perfectly. I didn't make up my mind on it. I read a misleading title. I think misleading titles are disappointing. So do you.
Sub goes for 120 + shipping on Amazon.
I can get the speakers and the sub for $115, and then pawn off/Craigslist the speakers and end up with a $120 sub for $70 or so bucks. Sounds good to me!
Ridiculously great deal! I'm using these (with the killer Dayton sub add-in) along with a Bic F12 to complete my 5.2 surround sound system!
Would really appreciate worldwide shipping!
Hi all,
From these speakers (without SUB), Can I get full range, satisfying clear sound with an average SMSL amp?
Note: I'm not a basshead, I like flat sound with bright trebles. Hearing basses well is enough for me.
Can they get loud?
Monoprice lists an inexpensive 6.5-inch bookshelf speaker with a ribbon tweeter that is scheduled to arrive on 11/23/2017

Yeah but if you want a sub and the speakers it only comes out to 123 bucks shipped. I use the bigger sub-1200 and some other speakers for my 5.1 setup but this is arguably good bang for the buck for a workshop/office. The sub it self is normally 119 everywhere I look currently.

I was just going to get the speakers too...but after pricing the sub...where else can you find such a highly reviewed sub for almost half of what Amaz0n has it listed for. At the current drop price your basically getting the speakers for free....like I said in my other post...this is exactly what I was needing to upgrade and complete my 5.2 media room setup.
[New To Audio Word] I have a Set of JBL 305s How do I go about in hooking them up with this Sub?
MidnighTempest
I don't think you can. Those speakers have the amplifier built into them and do not have a Sub Out.
MidnighTempest
Use 2 RCA splitters to send source to both the sub and your power monitors. Adjust crossover on the sub and done.
I personally have a set of Pioneer Andrew Jones designed SP-BS22-LR speakers and SW-8MK2 powered subwoofer I bought last year on my bedroom 1990's era Kenwood stereo system, and they are fantastic sounding for what they cost.
I own a pair of these and they're *very* nice for the price. Easily comparable to speakers costing 2 or 3 times as much.
got mine and hooked them up to a SMSL AD18. Holy crap, this system was like $150 bucks... it's incredible for the price!
I am confused. What is the price for the speakers with shipping from Massdrop???

I hope that's the case. I joined the drop with that understanding, though the wording in the shaded box at the bottom of the page makes it a little confusing. There's only two selections when you join the drop: the speakers or the sub (+ $65). It's not worded in the drop down menu as being the speakers *and* the sub, but that's implied in the wording of the drop itself. I guess I'm willing to take the chance here. Worst case scenario, I get just the sub on its own for a few dollars less than what it usually sells for. I can't really cry about that.

Yeah, There has been more than one time that I did not purchase a Massdrop because I could not clearly understand what the price was. Why do they make the price so confusing. Does Massdrop really think that making the price hard to read will increase the buy purchases. Weird. Anyways, I purchased two pairs of these speakers directly from PartsExpress. They are good for the price but NO, they do NOT blow away high-end speakers. I am very happy with their performance so far. They do exceed most all cheap speakers if crossed over and the bass gets handled by a subwoofer.
Any word on if the shipment will really only go out on Aug 15th? My new apartment definitely could use a dose of music.
They seem to be undercutting the price of the monitors to over-price the sub. Well, that's keen if you don't care about the sub or you are willing to find it elsewhere, just seems a bit shady.
Prices have gone up a lot on the subs. The Dayton Audio Sub-1200 was regularly on sale for $100 a few years ago. Masspoo.
Hi, does anyone has any comment/experience about sound quality? Im going down from a pair of Paradigm shift A2 due to internal electrical board failure. How will these replace my old pairs which is 10 times more expensive? Any thought please and thanks.
maca-bond
Paradigm Shifts are powered speakers. These will require an external amplifier/receiver. Depending if you planned for this, there may be better options for you.
I have these speakers, but have only heard the Paradigms on a couple occasions. Compared to other speakers I have (B&W, Polk, Def. Tech) they are clearly not in the same league. However, they do sound better than their price point would indicate.
these subs have really gone up in price.... I bought the sub-1200 (the higher output 12 inch model) for 110 back in late 2014
for a bit, i thought it was 120 bucks for the sub and the bookshelves and almost joined immediately.

Note: At checkout, choose the pair of B652-AIR speakers (base price), the SUB-1000 (+ $65), or both (+ $120).
AllanMarcus
I read it as +65 for sub so sub equals base price + 65 or 120 for sub, which is its normal price. Mayhaps i read it wrong. but since it has that "+" sign, i'm pretty sure it's base price (~$55) + $120 for the combo
Oh, totally right. I initially read it as the speaker + sub combo would only be +$65...
A review for those interested in researching: http://noaudiophile.com/Dayton_B652_Air/
So, the sub-woofer alone would be $119.99, then? No rush to join for me. Seems to be readily available at that price elsewhere.
tftdguru
Yeah this is a dumb drop. The larger SUB1200 goes on sale for $135 on parts-express. $120 For the 1000 is regular goddamn pricing.
tftdguru
If the subwoofer, was an even $100 additional, I would have joined.
The B652 Airs are $59.80 on Parts Express (https://www.parts-express.com/dayton-audio-b652-air-6-1-2-2-way-bookshelf-speaker-with-amt-tweeter-pair--300-651)
And the SUB-1000 is $119.00 (https://www.parts-express.com/dayton-audio-sub-1000-10-100-watt-powered-subwoofer--300-628)
Add in one of the coupons Parts Express always has (i.e. "W28M398YF") and you'd be spending more money on Massdrop just to get a longer ship time on the sub or the sub+speakers. For the speakers themselves you'd save $5, but would get them in three weeks compared to one.
I think the real steal here is the sub - the 1000 is listed as $120 new on Amazon.
So I can wait a few weeks to pay full price, (or save a max of 5 bucks)... I have the old B652's, they are fun speakers for cheap...
