    This speaker really kicks out the bass. I didn't know what to expect because I had not heard of this brand before, but I am truly impressed!

    The build quality of the subwoofer is comparable to $500+ ones. The quality and extension of the bass is really good.

    Incredible Bass

    I just purchased 2 Klipsch R-28F and this Bic Sub sounds perfect with them. I almost did not buy it because the reviews sounded to good to be true. I am now a Bic Sub Believer! I can't wait to amaze my friends with the Bass that this 1-12" sub produces. Clean-Low-scare the kids kind of Bass! I would recommend to all my friends! It sounds great with Movies-Jazz-classical-dub step-country-Mexican Banda- Norteno- and I even tried some of my old bass head music, and I was blown away.

    My Denon receiver pushes this thing like a champ. Talk about some incredible bass on a budget. I do have a small house, and man this sub shakes it.

    I bought this sub-woofer to upgrade my older Yamaha that came with my Yamaha HTR 5930 surround sound also purchased at Best Buy. Wow this unit has some very clean low bass that I was not expecting. Now with the addition on the BIC H-100II my Yamaha surround has new life and sounds great. Only reason for not giving it a 5 star as I Have not owned for very long. This is a great sub-woofer!

    Wow! Great sub for the price. Outperforms all subs I've had in the past. Works great even in a large room. Strong punchy bass that can be felt around the house. Highly Recommend!

    This is a very nice home theater subwoofer. The enclosure is really good quality and has a sophisticated looks with a gloss black top and front piece. The sub quality is really good and puts out really good bass, enough to shake the walls. The amp gets pretty warm when you start pushing it for long periods, so it's good to keep it where air can get to the back of it. It is a large enclosure and states that it will sound the best in a corner. Really good buy for the cost in comparison to some higher end subwoofers with equal wattage.

    I love my new BIC America subwoofer. It provides strong, deep bass with even frequency response. It automatically powers on and off. It has a beautiful gloss black top finish. The feature that I like the most is that it works with a traditional stereo receiver. It has high level (speaker level) inputs and outputs that connect to the speaker outputs of a regular stereo receiver and the inputs of left and right front speakers. It has low pass and high pass crossover networks that send low frequencies to the subwoofer, and upper bass to high frequencies to the left and right front speakers. This saved me from having to purchase a surround sound receiver. I am very happy with this subwoofer.

    Bic H100ii Subwoofer

    I was looking to upgrade my subwoofer for my home theater system. I am running an older Okyo r330 AVR from a home theater in a box. I have upgraded all of the speakers to Klipsch reference series and bought a 10inch Klipsch reference subwoofer. Unfortunately I could not use the Klipsch subwoofer being that the AVR was only designed to run the passive subwoofer that came with the set. The Klipsch subwoofer only had a LFE input and would not work properly with a line level converter. So I decided to look for an alternative subwoofer. That had high level inputs as well as the LFE. I came across this BIC H100II. I liked the look of it because it closely matches the look of my other Klipsch reference speakers. After reading reviews and watching videos on YouTube I decided to go with it. It arrived to my local Best Buy in less then a week, and setup was easy plug and play. My fist impression was how nice it looked with its black lacquered top and almost copper colored woofer cone. I use my system mostly for video games and movies as well as music. I can say in the area of sound quality this is an excellent subwoofer for the price. It will drop low and sounds great for all types of music and action scenes in movies. You can definitely feel the low frequency rumble from explosions and gun fire in movies and games and I would even say when listening to music it's a musical subwoofer clean deep and accurate and still be punchy for rock music. That being said it does tend to slightly struggle in frequency ranges below 30hz you can still freel it and hear it but it's not as pronounced as it would be with a higher end subwoofer. Remember this is only rated at 150w RMS 500w peak. But it definitely fills my 20x30 room with clean deep bass easily and provides the sound and output I was looking for.
