Summary: It is a 5 stars because: It fits perfectly my 9 paradigm speakers and the Denon 9.2 AV. I have purchased two, and each of them have different set up, for what I consider the best of two worlds. Bad that KLIPSCH don't make the RW12D anymore.
Summary: This subwoofer hits hard and clean. Honestly, I have no complaints about it. When placed in the correct spot in a room, you get an amazing amount of bass that you can even feel! When placing your sub, make sure to let it play, and get on your hands and knees and find spots in your room where the bass is the loudest.
Summary: Took a bit to get working because of receiver issues. After getting connected I can't stop listening. The GF loves it too. She was skeptical at first. Now she raves about how the "movies will sound with the sub". Highly recommended. Seems to get better by the day with the break in.
Summary: I paired this up with a Onkyo TX-NR809 home theater receiver and i'm extremely pleased. Its a bigger improvement sound wise from my RSW-15 sub from klipsch . I've owned the Klipsch Reference line since around 2002ish and they sound just as good today as they did after a few hours of break in. The reason why this middle brand 12 inch improved the sound quality in my room is purely my hearing style preference.
Summary: My brother told me about this unit and to get one and check it out. Since the price was 50% off retail, I thought if he was so excited about it, I would get him one also. Well I hooked this unit into my basic Onkyo surround system in the living room and was blown away. This is way to much speaker for a small space. Next was to install this in my theater room which is 25x30, connected to a Pioneer VSX-70. I cranked it up and the house was shaking.
Summary: Truly powerful bass you can feel in your chest! It has different settings and the PUNCH setting does exactly that! VERY HAPPY! The bass tube had to be glued back in place but after that it functioned Perfectly! I am mechanically minded so it wasn't a problem for me. Huge sound easy set up a pleasure to own.
There is a reason Klipsch is acknowledged as world class sound.

Summary: Precisely controlled, mind and body stimulating thunder! Even with a relatively modest amp at much less than half volume, this musical instrument excited the senses with heretofore unheard nuances of low end material. Without breaking a sweat.
Summary: My old 10"jbl was old and weak,,replaced with this rw12" klipsch sub,,, and also replace my bose center speaker for klipsch 52 center speakers,,,,, wut a big difference it made,,,, all I need now is some klipsch tower speakers,,, to replace my 301 bose speaker,, 4 me klipsch all the way,,, awsome speakers,,,,
Summary: Pros: Arrived in overall good condition. Loud and thunderous. Handles music well. Cons: Broken grill(as expected). Easy fix Other: This thing rumbles every corner of my very small room(L12xW12xH10). It's way overkill for the size of my room, now that I look back on my purchase, but I have no regrets!
