Summary: This is the 4th one of these Klipsch SW112 subs purchased by me for myself and friends[ 2 for one friend and one for another..1 for myself].I didn't even need this last one but for $250.00 I had to get it!
Great sub for the money, wish I had room for a second.

Summary: I bought this sub when it went on sale for $249. At its full MSRP there are certainly better subs out there for the money, but for under $400 its hard to beat. My wife isn't crazy about how it looks, but I hid it, so she doesn't really care.
Summary: Great bass! This is replacing my Energy Take 5 subwoofer, that has apparently failed after just 2 years. The Klipsch produces significant bass, in fact it can overpower the room and has to be turned down.
Summary: Plenty loud enough for the average joe. I was expecting a bit more from a 300 watt rms amp to be honest. I have a set up with a generous amount of room gain and it is not as loud as I was expecting. I did tune it with audessey and did the "sub crawl" (audessey set cross over at 80 hz.
Summary: I've been playing this for a couple of days now. The sound is quite good; it seems to get very low yet the bass is tight and precise. I like that it's front ported because distance from the wall is not quite as critical as on a rear ported sub.
Summary: I just got this in the past few days. It's replacing a Polk 10" sub with 200 watts. I have an Onkyo 818, Oppo BDP-93, CambridgeSoundworks Towers and Bowers and Wilkins 6 series center and surrounds. The new Klipsch is definitely an upgrade. I notice a tighter low end, no flabiness.
