Design

This model is built very well – nothing shakes or rattles and the whole subwoofer feels like one solid piece. It has two ports that exclude any kind of noise and they also improve the output sound quality. The dimension is 17.2x14.8x19.5 in while the weight is 46 pounds. The weight and the dimension help to avoid any unnecessary noise or vibrations.

The back panel has all the ports which are labeled so you will have no troubles connecting everything up. It has switches (on/off and phasing) and two dials to adjust the volume and the crossover frequency.

The inputs are gold-plated to minimize the output noise. It has Dolby Pro Logic and DTS LFE inputs.

It has hand-rubbed black lacquer on the top and bottom, so it has a deep gloss shine and it is scratch resistant.

Features

The Bic Acoustech PL-200 II specs show that it has 250 W of the RMS output, while the dynamic peak output can reach 1000 W. This model has adjustable crossover and volume, while the frequency response is from 22 Hz to 200 Hz. It has a BASH amplifier installed, so the output sound is very powerful and clean. The adjustable crossover is bypassable if you adjust the crossover through a digital receiver. It also has an “auto on/off” with a LED indicator. The subwoofer features the automatic signal sensing feature. Unfortunately, this model does not have magnetic shielding, so you need to place it carefully to avoid damaging other devices.

Performance & Sound quality

Customers like the output sound quality of this model – the output sound is phenomenal with every low note full, rich and sharp, no muddiness or the “cheap boom” sound. The unit is also very powerful, if you turn the volume knob above the halfway point, the model will overwhelm you with the output sound.

This subwoofer fills a room with the low-frequency sound, even if your setup is in a moderately sized basement room about 10x20. However, some customers claim that you may need two of these subwoofers in a bigger room. Therefore, the subwoofer may sound muddy if you do not place it right, or the room is too big for a single unit.

Nevertheless, some customers claim that his model has some “cone flap” during certain extreme scenes and the subwoofer does not sound too good. Other customers find this subwoofer to be “weak” for certain music tracks.

Setup

The Bic Acoustech PL-200 II setup is easy to perform since the back panel has all the labels you need. Setup is easy – plug into the wall, plus in the sub cable and after that, you can start adjusting the receiver settings and tweak the subwoofer settings (the crossover frequency and phase). This subwoofer is compatible with many modern receivers and you will get amazing audio output.

Conclusion

If you look for a great, powerful subwoofer then The Bic Acoustech PL-200 II is exactly what you need – it has everything you need. The subwoofer is very powerful so it shakes everything in your room, while it is flexible (various inputs, which are compatible with modern devices). You can easily adjust various Bic Acoustech PL-200 II settings, like volume, frequency crossover and phase switching. The gold-plated terminals help to avoid any noise. Unfortunately, it does not have magnetic shielding, so you need to find a good place for it – it has a powerful magnet, which may damage other devices located nearby.
