    I bought this to add to a HT. This replaced a high end 10" sub that was blowing internal fuses and honestly was not big enough for the room it was moved to either. Having spent too much on the rest of my set up I took a chance at the price and am pleasantly surprised. Delivered in 2 days, sub is attractive with a quality feel and appears well built. Sound is great. I tuned it to my system and would say that I do not find it muddy, bass is clean at high volume. Note that this is a large speaker which should be considered in your placement. This is my first BIC purchase, I will definitely keep them in mind for future purchases.

    I did a couple of months researching subwoofers before purchasing this one. The BIC F12 has been around for years and is rated as one of the best subwoofers you can buy for around $200.00. You can believe all of the good reviews. This sub sounds great, I have it paired with my Klipsch reference book shelf speakers. The lows are nice and clean with no muddy sound to them. It is great for movies and gives very natural sound. It also is great for music. We listen to everything from jazz to heavy metal. And it sounds great. Don't be afraid to purchase this sub it is worth the money.

    I am very happy with this sub and I would definitely recommend it. For this price range it can't be beat in my opinion. Sound is getting even better as it breaks in. Settings and adjustments should be set for each individual setup to get the most and the best out of it.

    Added this sub to my 7.2 system, replacing a 10" Sony and am very pleased with the purchase. Performance is at it's best for this price range subwoofer. Build quality is also excellent.

    This is a great subwoofer for the price point. It has the ability to interface between your mains or run from a RCA cable direct from you amp (If amp is equipped). Its quite powerful as I have the volume at about 40%.
