BIC America F-12


The BIC America F-12 delivers huge bass and works well as a home-theater or stereo subwoofer. The amplifier lacks the power necessary to carry other speakers, but as an all-around subwoofer, this low-frequency speaker is hard to beat.

The BIC America F-12 offers solid performance and powerful bass

The amp is underpowered for the sub's potential

The BIC America F-12 handles movies and music with huge sound, and it easily connects to any audio setup.

Incredible Power


Overall, this subwoofer is far and away the best value for this price range. It easily outperforms any Polk subwoofer that costs similarly, and produces much more power and "subwoofer" type sound than it's competitor's counterparts. I am an audiophile,...

This woofer has power. Lots of it, to be a little more precise. I'm running it in conjunction with two Polk Audio Monitor 70 Series II towers on a Sony STR-DE335 at 100 watts a channel. The system bumped before I got the subwoofer, but wow, I was blown...

The woofer, for all it's power, has the tendency to be a little boomy when playing rock music. Then again, it is a twelve inch sub, not a punchy 8 inch

Value Sub


For the price, you don't find too many subs that can hit the lows this sub can. The connection options are also plentiful thus no compatibility issues with older AVRs. Easily meshes with newer AVRs that control crossover levels, too, through it's...

The only con I can think of is the size--but that's not an issue for me. I wanted a 12" sub. With that said, 150W RMS for a 12" sub is a bit light. But MORE than sufficient. Don't worry about the wattage too much. It's not even clear how comparable or...

Excellent Sub For The Money


If you're looking for a large sub capable of producing some good low bass without breaking the bank then this one fits the bill very well. No problems with it and still enjoying this. Performs better than what you might expect for the money.

I've had one of these for about a year and a half and its great with no problems. The bass is fairly tight down to its lower limit and I have it set at about 4.5 on a dial that goes up to 10. Set up my crossover at 80 and its been going fine since. The...

None, is a great performer for the money

Nice Surprise


Bought to replace a 10 inch high end sub in a new HT 5.1 set up. The old one was too small for the room and was popping internal fuses. Having depleted a lot of my budget I took a chance on this one.Pleasant surprise!!! Lots of power, tuned into my...

Bought this Sub woofer & noted a big differance over the Sony sub that I had befor it. This sub has plenty of power for my system. This sub work well with my Pioneer VSX-821-K. It's extremley tuneable too. I also have a Onkyo TX-3000 Receiver for the...

Fantastic Sub


Added this sub to my 7.2 system, replacing a 10" Sony and am very pleased with the purchase. Performance is at it's best for this price range subwoofer. Build quality is also excellent.
