Laster 4 hours


I purchased this sub in November. Read reviews and couldn't have been more excited to get it. I waited until after Christmas to get my receiver (like a fool). After setting up I adjusted it and tried it out. Awesome sound. After about 4 hours of play...

Great sub for the price.


Very reasonable price for a sub woofer. Throws out quite a bit bass and works well in concert with my Athene speakers. Solid construction with a number of different configuration settings on the back panel. Overall very satisfied at this point.

Canned thunder!


Got this for the system in the garage(24'x21'). It adds very nice lows to the sound. The main left and right handle the mid bass. I like it so much I am thinking of buying a second for my main system in the living room to make it a 7.2 setup. I like...

awsome for the price


Using a digital source I had to turn the sub up to 6 or more for it to work. I'm impressed at how it works I dont dare turn it up higher. I have had it for about 3 weeks and it is starting to sound better and better. Definetly one of the best subs I've...

Really nice Sub-Woofer


I have another sub woofer but his one really has deeper bass range and supplies the need oomph for Action pictures. Sounds great with music as well.

Product Specifications

The V1220 offers unsurpassed performance at its price! It incorporates a high current 200-watt (430-watts peak) amplifier (designed by BASH Technology) combined with a 12" heavy duty long-throw woofer and long-life butyl surround. The patented "Venturi" vent eliminates port noise (often heard from other subwoofers when playing demanding music and videos). The V1220 also features an adjustable crossover, automatic signal sensing, high-level inputs, and both Dolby Pro Logic & Dolby Digital/DTS inputs.
