Summary: I have had these for about a month and I am very pleased. Not sure what other people are doing with theirs, but these speakers are not boomy, and they are tight. It will take you a little while to get them adjusted, and tuned, but it is well worth the effort. The sub does not overwhelm you when bass should not be there. Movies have come to life and you feel the bottom.
Deserves a 5 star review. Will update review as it is breaking in.

Summary: As soon as the sub came in, i immediately adjusted the settings on my receiver to make it sound its best. I made a test cd that goes from 180 down to 20 hz. At first there was barely a response at 30 hz. At 35 hz, the light fixtures in my basement started rattling, and keep in mind that during all this testing, I dont have the sub very loud. just enough so that the spider moves so it can get used to excursion.
Summary: I would give it a five but because I really like bass I had this poor unit all the way turnd up i eventually burned the amp out bummer but when it worked this sub put out solid bass I eventually bought the Polk Audio SW 505 as a replacment.
Summary: I purchased this sub to replace an old KLH 10" sub that really sounded good. This sub hits hard. I have it paired up w/ Bic DV-62CLRS Center Channel and a pair of Bic DV-62SI speakers for the front mains. Receiver is a Yamaha RX-V371. Rears are Phillips speakers that came with my old surround sound system. When the KLH first failed I tried a Sony SA-W3000. The Sony was boomy. Just did not have enough punch. So I orded this one and never looked back.
Summary: So far this sub has been nothing less than awesome. It doesnt seem to kick on when there is just talking on the screen - which IMO is nice. We watch normal tv and blu-ray movies and its nice to have a working sub again. I would suggest this to my friend.
Summary: I had ordered this sub being a little bit skeptical. I have a very old receiver without a "sub out" port and thought this fact meant that i would have to buy a new receiver if i wanted a subwoofer. I read most of the reviews and thought using this sub would work. I got it this morning and before break in it is MONSTROUS. Extraordinarily satisfied. UPDATE 3/13/12 It it fully broken in, and I can really crank it now.
Summary: I have owned this sub for over 1.5 years (bought on Amazon in Feb. 2010). The sub operates flawlessly. This was my first BIC America speaker purchase. Since then,I have purchased a center channel and two floor speakers. I love the sound and setup for my home theater.
Summary: This sub is easy to hook up and like all BIC products, is high quality. I had a BIC V-80 8 inch 100 watt just one month prior to buying this one. My reason for buying this sub, was a much lower frequency response- -[23 HZ's] which realley lets you feel the footsteps of that T-REX walking across the screen! If you have an older receiver that has no LFE sub out output,this sub is very easy to hook up to it.
Summary: Setup was easy. Product was nicely packaged, no dents/scratches. Great sub, I dont have any complaints. This sub like many other downfireing subs, sound much better in a corner-so keep that in mind if you are considering purchasing this.
Summary: very very impressed!!!! just a initinal review no weird noises coming from the sub when its off..... great sound quality....movies or music....i have it in the corner of the room it's not even turned up all the way and has a TON of volume..
