BIC America F12

 

I love this sub for movies. I have it paired with a Dayton Sub 1200. Together, they do an incredible job. They shake the room when appropriate and blend into the background perfectly when needed. I am also running energy CF 70 front speakers and an...

Not aware of any.

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

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

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...

Great sub!

 

I haven't been able to compare this to many other 12inch subs (local stores have 10 inch), but it definitely puts the 10inch subs to shame. My research shows that this sub is better than competitors in this price range (Polk 505), but it likely won't...

Pretty much everything! Perfect for movies, games, and most music, especially for the price. I only have the bass set to 4 out of 10, and that is more than enough!

The bass could be tighter for certain types of music, but it is still good enough for me and probably most others.

Wow - Thunderous Bass

 

The best money you'll ever spend on a mid - high end home audio system. I've compared to nearly every brand and these are at the top of the list and are my primary subwoofers.

Powerful bass

 

go ahead.. buy it

Hands down the most powerful 12" sub you can buy for under $200. I had a Polk PSW10 and that worked great for the small room it was in. When I moved to a much larger living room the Polk couldn't keep up. I read a lot of reviews before purchasing the...

They only drawback I can find is a lack of tightness for music playback (and really only rock/jazz; electronic/rap sounds great). And I think that is being a little picky. If you're buying this because you want the room to shake, you've made a good...
