Klipsch Sub-12 subwoofer

 

Klipsch Synergy Sub-12

The Klipsch Synergy Sub-12 is a full-size subwoofer that offers a down-firing 12-inch woofer, a 300-watt amplifier, and connectivity options that cover all bases.

A real wood veneer would look nicer.

The Klipsch Synergy Sub-12, the company's most affordable 12-inch subwoofer, sounds great on music and movies.

Klipsch Synergy System 6 review: Klipsch Synergy System 6

 

Klipsch Synergy System 6

Great, rip-roaring dynamic range; clean, low-distortion sound; gutsy 10-inch, 225-watt sub.

Plain-Jane looks.

This system handily outperforms many larger and more expensive home-theater speaker packages.

Episode ES-SUB-12-300-MB Powered Subwoofer Reviewed

 

Episode has released their largest subwoofer to date with the ES-SUB-12. While its looks may not be so impressive, HomeTheaterReview.com reviewer Andrew Robinson's evaluation claims the performance is quite the opposite.

The ES-SUB-12's build quality is phenomenal, possessing smooth lines, solid construction and the warranty to back it up. While the finish may not be automotive grade, it's not supposed to be, for the ES-SUB-12 is designed with the intention of being...

The ES-SUB-12's grille is a bit finicky and cheap, but then again, you'd probably leave it off when installing it into an AV cabinet anyway ; I'm sure many will criticize the ES-SUB-12 for its simplicity, for many subs in its price bracket feature some...

To say that I was impressed following my time spent with Episode's big daddy subwoofer, the ES-SUB-12, is a bit of an understatement. At first glance, there's little to get excited about, for the ES-SUB-12 appears to be behind the times in terms of...

Earth Shattering Death by Bass

 

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...

Truly purpose built for LFE. Definately will feel the thunder and earth quake experience as the movie intended

Should set the low pass all the way down. This sub isn't meant for music, as it's too muddy.

Amazing bass for a 12 at this price

 

I have one on my living room surround and I'm buying another for my projector surround. I have it in a 12x15 room at about 20% volume and it's knocking the pictures off the wall. I have not had any distortion of any type. The family is honestly loving it.

Nothing so far

Awesome Boom!

 

Great product especially at the discounted price! You won't be disappointed!

Sounds great, the woofer booms now when either watching a movie or listening to music rock now, very clear! Love it

The standby light "red" and the "on" blue light are kind of annoying as they are very bright.

Hard to beat for the money

 

I haven't compared this with other subs. If I can get my VTF-2 (MK1) repaired, I might update this review.

Does what it's supposed to. Its down-firing design makes it less likely that the driver will be damaged.

Some port noise can be heard if you play sine waves in isolation. You probably won't hear it in the context of music or especially a movie. If you put this in a room that's too big, response below the mid 30's will drop, making it sound like it has a...

An amazing sub, great price, and excellent shipping for $1.99!!!

 

Highly recommended! Comes with 5 year Klipsch warranty too!

Shipping was fast and inside another box plus it's own box so fully protected. Very fast shipping! Hooked up to new receiver and it is amazing when paired with the Klipsch Quintet speakers. Very happy with this purchase and excellent service from Newegg!

None at all.
