- FTC Rated Power: 150 watts dynamic, 75 watts continuous
Good, not great 02/17/2014
This review is from: Energy Power12 Sub 12" 150W Front-Firing Rear Ported Subwoofer (Black)
This thing really does have a nice loud bass. It shakes our house pretty well. It is now in a fairly large room, and performes better than expected, expecially for a 150 W sub. I would buy this again at the price I paid - $99 (150 less 50 rebate). If the price was over 150, I would opt for the BIC F-12, Those are very good subs as well. Again, I am really happy with this sub for the $99, 150w category. As others have said, it is quite small for a good 12" sub, but small is relative; it is HUGE compaired to an 8" sub if that's what your used to, so keep that in mind.
The sound is a little muddy, expecially at full volume. I don't like the sound of the speaker at full volume (meaning the sub turned all the way up, not the amp turned all the way up). It would be nice to have a clearer sound coming from the speaker, but hey, it was $99, it sounds great for that price.
I use pretty much only use this for movies. I don't know if I'd want much more bass than this speaker puts out (again, a clearer bass would be nice). This speaker does not have a LOT of excursion, but I kind'a like that as it doesn't sound too airy. I like the slot port, no chuffing.
