The Sub-12HG specs are quite impressive - this model features a 12-inch down firing driver with a high-power BASH amplifier. It outputs 300 W of continuous power. The dynamic power is 650 W. This model also has a built-in steep-slope (24 dB/octave) low-pass crossover and can be adjusted from 40 to 120 Hz. This model also has phase control. This solution features an “auto power” feature which can turn the subwoofer on and off (or turn on the standby mode) – this system uses the input audio signal to choose the appropriate mode. The frequency response is from 24 Hz to 120 Hz.

Customers are satisfied with the output sound since it blends well with their right and left speakers. The bass sound is smooth and deep, and it tends to growl a bit during movies. Customers claim that this solution is perfect for movies, while the plate amplifier turned up to 75% of its full power. Some customers also claim that setting the crossover frequency too high may be the cause for the muddy output sound. According to the customers’ experience, this model is great for small and medium-sized rooms, and if you have a large room, then you need at least a couple of such solutions. Some customers claim that the only downfall of this model is its limited output for medium-larger and greater room since good ported subs require the enclosure to be large. Many customers agree that this model is very powerful – it “shake walls and windows” when the volume is up halfway or more. However, some customers claim that the “auto on/off” feature is not reliable and sometimes it fails.

Customers do not have any problems with the Sub-12HG setup process – everything is labeled so you just connect everything up and start tweaking the crossover frequency and volume. If you have a complex set up, which involves a receiver, then you adjust the receiver settings. Overall, customers do not have any issues with it and the whole process does not take too much time.
