This review is from: Klipsch Reference RW-10D 10'' Powered Subwoofer Each
separately configurable for movies and for music
goes down to 28Hz "only"
10" drivers seem to be the ideal size for subwoofers, because they move enough air, but tend to be less sluggish than drivers with 12" diaphragms (of course, light materials and huge magnets can fix that problem with 12", but it is rare to find drivers with large enough magnets).
At the sale price ($200, including shipping), I am planning to buy one more for a 7.2 setup. That will move more air than single-driver 12" subwoofer.
There are three presets: 'deep' boosts sound at 30Hz, 'punch' adds more energy at 60Hz, and 'flat' gives you whatever comes from your sound source, while consuming less energy than the other two presets. I have found 'deep' and 'punch' unusable, because they upset the sound balance in my system (HK AVR 240, 550W or so ML M12s fronts, M12s surrounds, and two Whardale 7.2s for center).
Of course, if you want to go below 28Hz, buy something else. Newegg sells high-end Klipsch for $1,500 that goes down to 22Hz (about a couple of notes lower than 28Hz).
