Excerpt: It's a large unit, but there's something subtle and understated about the SW-450. It's a deep cabinet (49.5cm), but relatively narrow (35.6cm) and the use of a vinyl wrap as opposed to a glossy black finish helps the subwoofer blend into its surroundings. The Klipsch sports a downward-firing 10in driver with a fibre-composite cone.
Pros: Substantial and weighty sound, understated looks
Cons: Can lose its way with more complex basslines
