R-112SW setup on its own in a corner, I struggled to render out some of the "boominess" in the very low notes (probably 40 Hz or lower). That would be true of any single subwoofer in this location. That is also less of an issue if you have a receiver that can help EQ your "room modes". Also, this is less of an issue if can place it closer to the center of a wall - the sweet spot is along that wall somewhere. Subwoofer placement can be a bit tricky, but once you have it positioned properly, the sound is much fuller and you can feel the bass notes when you should be able to feel them, and yet the sub does not overwhelm. Klipsch R-112SW settings are a breeze and took a total of 30 minutes, including mapping everything.

In short, there are no fancy R-112SW specs here or "auto equalization" to help you along, nor any built-in EQ features, but for this money, this is perhaps the norm, and those features are redundant given some of today's AV receivers. It is somewhat hard to "dial in" at first, but eventually, it will be settled for. The lows and responses are crystal clear with absolutely no distortion and the crossovers to and from other speakers are seamless. The sub is very deep, powerful and dynamic. At low volume it grumbles like a dinosaur, sometimes it behaves like a monster wanting to get out of a cage. This sub I highly recommended to anyone who loves both music and movies, Klipsch R-112SW picks up every note that being played on the low end. this subwoofer gets a ton of bass out of a fairly minuscule amount of woofer movement.

There is a huge difference in sound and feel. R-112SW blends in perfect. It adds in the thumping and room shaking without sounding too boomy for the lack of a better word. It reaches down pretty low. It doesn't hit as hard as a good 15" of course. At the same time though there is no need to constantly adjust it when you change the type of audio your playing. Sounds great though and I feel like it is worth the cost. It sounds deep, aggressive, tight, and fantastic. At first, that slowish "ported sound" with "too-much-overhang" is there on music tracks that dug ultra-deep. But the floor and wall shaking sound are there to a level that is truly awesome. The Klipsch had that great "effortless" sound. This Klipsch subwoofer is very impressive. Great tone, and captures not just the sound, but the feel of the lowest lows in your music and movies. It's hard to find a sub that produces both a "tight" bass sound, while also being "smooth." No distortion with this unit. The size of the speaker helps it to easily reproduce very low frequencies without distortion, and without having to crank the volume to get the effect you want.

Power

The Klipsch R-112SW is a powerful subwoofer, with an excellent nominal output power of 300 watts and a maximum output power of 600 watts. It has an audio amplifier output power rating of 300 Watts, making it suitable for larger rooms or more demanding applications. The 8 ohm impedance ensures that the speaker can handle high wattage without distortion while still delivering clear sound quality at lower volumes. Along with that, its low pass filter allows you to customize your listening experience by controlling how much bass comes through in each frequency range. Ultimately, the vented enclosure design helps ensure efficient airflow and improved performance from this powerful subwoofer system.

Frequency Response

The Klipsch R-112SW subwoofer has a fantastik frequency response range of 24 Hz to 125 Hz. This wide range allows for a deep and powerful bass that can be felt as well as heard, making it ideal for home theater systems or music listening alike. The crossover frequency is adjustable between 40Hz and 160Hz, allowing users to customize the sound output according to their preferences. Moreover, this model provides a low pass filter which helps eliminate any unwanted high frequencies from entering into the mix. With its robust design and excellent performance capabilities, this subwoofer provides great value at an affordable price point.

Impedance

The Klipsch R-112SW subwoofer has an impedance of 8 ohms, which is relatively low compared to other models on the market. This means that it can handle more power than higher impedance subs and will be able to produce louder bass with less distortion. Along with that, this lower resistance allows for better sound quality as well since there is less interference from outside sources such as electrical appliances or even nearby speakers. The result is a cleaner sounding audio experience overall when using this particular model of subwoofer.

Size/Dimensions

The Klipsch R-112SW is a powerful subwoofer with an impressive 12" driver size. Its dimensions are 41.4 cm (17.4 inches) in height, 39.4 cm (15.5 inches) in width and 46.3 cm (18 .2 inches) in depth, making it compact enough to fit into most spaces without taking up too much room or looking out of place while still providing plenty of power for your audio needs! It also has a weight of 22 kgs/48 pounds which makes it easy to move around if needed but heavy enough that you know its built from quality materials and won't be easily damaged during transport or setup!

Connectivity Options

The Klipsch R-112SW is a striking subwoofer with an amazing connectivity options. It offers one RCA LFE input, allowing you to connect it directly to your receiver or amplifier for maximum performance. Add on that, the unit also has an RCA stereo line level input pair which allows you to easily integrate other audio components into your system without needing additional cables and adapters. Sadly, this model does not have any XLR inputs or outputs nor bi-amp capabilities so if these are important factors in choosing a subwoofer then this may not be the best option for you. Eventually, there are no speaker outputs or inputs on this particular model either making it more suitable as part of an existing home theater setup rather than being used as its own standalone sound solution.
