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 price - sounded great when it worked

Worked for all of four hours - then DEAD

Exactly what I was hoping


This sub replaces an older 8" that was distorting when hitting lows at higher volumes. When playing both music and television content, the v1220 does a great job of producing a clear, deep bass with no distortion. It's a good size for the room it is...

Excellent starter Sub.


Excellent sub for price and performance. I debated over and over before purchasing this sub. Skeptical about design and placement. I was going to go with a front firing sub for a 23 x 11 squared living room but at the last minute I decided on this one....

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.

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.
