Excerpt: A long-running favourite at What Hi-Fi? Sound and Vision, this Tannoy sub is now available for less than its original £500 test price. Measuring 37x34x34cm, the TS-12 comes in a very well-built, but surprisingly light enclosure. It's a sealed design, using a downward-firing 30cm driver and a meaty 500-watt amplifier. The result is fast, punchy bass with the minimum of overhang. The TS-12 will go loud, too, without sounding overstrained when pushed.
Pros: Punchy and taut sound, fine build, compact, good range of inputs
Cons: Other subwoofers at this price level can go deeper
