    This BIC sub sounds just as good as the 12" Klipsch that I replaced at a much lower price.

    Clean , powerful and attractive. Nice style for a big black block trying to sit inconspicuously in your room. Probably more power than I needed but sounds great at whatever volume I have it on.

    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!

    I love this subwoofer! It hits the lows that I was hoping for. The cheaper Polk I bought just didn't get down low enough and was noticeable in my music. I returned it and purchased the BIC and am VERY happy with it. Clean sound, not boomy.

    As soon as I hooked this sub up I was very impressed! Wow, does it thump and sound great in movies and music. Now only after about a month, there is a slight rattle, vibration sound coming from the front of it. I never ran it wide open and I am not sure what I am hearing but there is definitely a bad vibration kind of sound coming from it. I will look into getting a replacement or seeing what is wrong.

    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.
