Pros Bass will knock your socks off!!!
Cons Its pretty large, but well worth the space
Summary I reviewed several subwoofers and took many recommendations and went with a 12" vs. a 10" Klipsch sub. My kid ran downstairs after I first turned it on, to find out what knocked his trophy on the floor. I couldn't be happier with my purchase. You'll never see movies the same again.
Pros Crisp, LOUD, earth shattering BASS
Cons Could look better
Summary Ok, I will start off with the good. Where to start... How about with lots of BASS. This thing is has lots of boom and rumbling that is can dish out. I have knocked a couple pictures off their nails with this thing. With a 300-watt amplifier its not overly that hard, but the amplifier can accept many inputs and can be "trimmed" for the crossover frequencies, 40Hz-160Hz. It can accept RCA and speaker wire from a receiver, and has a nice large breather hole in the back.
Now, to the darker sides of things. Its not the easiest on the eyes. While not bad looking there are better looking subs, but with its awesome sound its kinda hard to go with a different sub for the price. The blue light on the front can be a little bright in dark movies and dark rooms.
Over all, its not a bad sub at all. I would recommend it to anyone that wants to pound the house and feel it when something blows up!
Pros Clear and Powerful at all frequencies
Cons Auto turn off takes awhile
Summary I love the down firing with rear port sound of this sub. I have it paired with the rest of the synergy F2 set and it sounds awesome in my open style great room. Be careful as most music is not designed for a sub this powerful and turning it up too loud can easily rattle things off of shelves! Movies with explosions have knocked pictures and candles over through the wall in another room!
All switches are extreamly high quality as well as the crossover and gain adjust knobs. Nice solid feel to all components. The enclosure is extreamly sturdy and therefore is kinda heavy. It has an auto off setting which takes awhile to actually turn off. Not that it matters really.
Pros Truly purpose built for LFE. Definately will feel the thunder and earth quake experience as the movie intended
Cons Should set the low pass all the way down. This sub isn't meant for music, as it's too muddy.
Summary This sub is no Barry White, it's not meant for music. It's meant for heart stopping Low Frequency Experience. If your HT system is missing the Feel, this is it. This blew away the 15" sub I had for LFE. If you are looking for musical bass, look elsewhere, idealy a seal enclosure. For pure thunder, this will crack your floor open.
Pros Beats any sub I have heard, or purchased. Much better than 10" sub.
Cons I cannot find any.
Summary I have had this sub for over 3 years. Never a flaw or problem. Unlike my JBL. It broke twice and did not sound as clear at higher volumes. This sub is as good at low settings as well as high settings. Clear all the way thru the spectrum. Highly recommend. Very versitile in its settings also. Just put it in a corner and you will not be able to tell where the bass is coming from. Music or movies both are acceptional thru this excellent sub.
