Bic Acoustech PL-200 II vs Monoprice 9723 – Bang-for-the-Bick Subs

Bic Acoustech PL-200 II vs Monoprice 9723

The check of Bic Acoustech PL-200 II vs Monoprice 9723 let me compare their diversities and reveal much larger Bic Acoustech PL-200 II’s power than Monoprice 9723 has. However, this advantage requires other components of the acoustic system to be powerful (no more than 50% less powerful than a sub). Bic Acoustech PL-200 II’s composition is pressed long-fiber paper that can decrease its damping features because of absorbing moisture from the air.

Monoprice 9723 has 5 speaker connectors versus Bic Acoustech PL-200 II’s 2 ones. That means more opportunities to power the sub via making various connections. At the same time, this unit lacks volume when connecting it with the AVR – you should start its level control with halfway up at once.

Design
