Most Helpful Customer Reviews
I recently purchased this sub from a box store sale (really didn't want to have it shipped.)
My 10+ year old Carver Sunfire finally failed (AMAZING reference sub!) I waited awhile to replace it while researching great options without wanting to spend big $$$ for this component (there is no need if you do your homework anymore.) I'm not a hardcore audiophile, but I wanted a subwoofer that had mixed performance for home theater and music, which is a tall task for many subwoofers in general. They typically excel at one or the other without being well-balanced for both. This sub box housing is large, so you should probably have a good idea of how much room you have available for placement (and that's the only reason I'm dinging it one star for most.) I've been very pleased with the performance of the Klipsch and recommend it. Just a note... I'm willing to bet that most poor reviews out there are coming from people that have no idea to 'dial in' the settings...
My wife hates it (nuff said) LOL
I purchased this sub to replace another 12 inch subwoofer I had because it was lacking for music. I can happily say that this sub has met my needs and is great for music. It produces nice, tight and punchy bass. The kick on a bass drum is punchy and lifelike, and despite it being a 12" sub it keeps up well with fast double bass. And of course for rap/hip hop this thing pumps out clear and low bass flawlessly. For movies, the quality of bass this thing puts out is amazing. It just throws thunderous and floor rumbling bass at you, while still maintaining accuracy and no bottoming out or distortion at all. I have tried cranking this thing past halfway for the heck of it, but I just found the bass to be too much. Though it does not lose quality, your speakers could be downed out in bass unless you're running some with a good amount of output.
This subwoofer has easily became one of my very favorites. Sure it is not an SVS, B&W, Velodyne, KEF, or Martin Logan, ect...
