Pretty Nice

Willis, Crutchfield
28 February 2014
  • Summary: I love music, all kinds of music.....The sub sounds great. It feels my living space with plenty of sound & even carries into other rooms as well. I really like the the warmth it brings to overall sound.
  • Pros: The enclosure looks great, very nice quality & not overwhelming being a 12" sub. With that said, it wouldn't stick out like a sore thumb against decor in the room. It sounds great.
  • Cons: Sometimes at high volume & super low bass notes you can hear some port noise. I wish it had an auto on signal reference. It would be nice to not have to switch it on & off manually.

Good Performing Sub

CubanJimbo, ABT Electronics
10 October 2013
  • Summary: Have had other Kilpsch subs that left me with little desire to try that brand again, but this one is a good one! So good that I now have two. Bass response is pretty even and is a good pick for a small to medium-sized room (10x20 or so). Can't say I would recommend them for my Home Theater, but they can work there too, if need be.
  • Pros: Attractive Design, Easy To Set Up, Good Power Output

Great sub for movies......

Dennis Thompson, Amazon
10 September 2013
  • Summary: Took about 2 weeks to break in, ground shaking bottom end for movies, lacks clarity for music, but I knew that going in. Since it's mostly used for TV, movies, sports etc does a great job and very pleased, blends well with my older Klipsch Reference speakers. If you are looking for something more for music, I would suggest a sealed sub.

I like it

John S. Moore "Themoor", Amazon

  • Summary: Performs as advertised. I can now hear & FEEL the music I play. Just a little volume goes a long way. Be sure to place it where you can easily access rear control. I have a turntable & play albums (LP's). Adjustments are necessary when switching between CD's, tuner & turn table usage. I paired it with some Klipsçh Herasey speakers. Very nice. Can't wait for the opportunity a party will provide to really crank it up!

It does the trick

DaveW, Crutchfield
17 June 2013
  • Summary: My Stereo is designed for music only, I found that after several tweaks to the SW-112 it suited my needs well, not overpowering but improved the sound quality .
  • Pros: Good looking Subwoofer. Works well with Free Standing Speakers. Took some work to get the performance where I wanted it.
  • Cons: Too heavy

Great for music. Average for movies.

  • Excerpt: Very nice sub for music. Blend well with my other speakers easily and sounds quite punchy. Since it could not go below 26hz, for home theater, it lacks of the deepest effect. Overall, a nice entry level sub.
  • Pros: Attractive Design, Easy to Mount, Easy To Set Up, Great Sound Quality
  • Cons: Weak Bass

Not everything I needed

Robert H., Vanns
25 November 2012
  • Excerpt: I originally bought 2 of these. I sold the first shortly after purchase because I didn't have a good acoustical place to put it. I love the punch this thing produces. Sounds awesome. Shakes the couch with explosions. The transient response, however, was terrible. The bass sounded sloppy, which was sometimes noticeable with movies, and very often with music. It never blended well with my bookshelf mains. I ended up selling the second one after about a year and a half.

Klipsch SW112

Ken M., Vanns
10 January 2012
  • Excerpt: Although good 8 and 10 subs respond well in music playback its difficult to match the impact a 12 sub has for the home AV system. I have a Klipsch downfacing 8 that is just fantastic with music. But, when it comes to AV its one thing to hear the deep sound of explosions or other effects and another to feel them! This forward facing 12 does just that - without distortion. My AV system uses a microphone to optimize speaker performace.
