    After a months long Research in finding the suitable Sub Woofer I found this one and suited well with my new Sony A/V Receiver. The package was simple and easy to install. There are 2 ways to install. Wired and Wireless. Wired: I tried this with Sub-Woofer Gold plated cables and the sound at all frequency was awesome. Wireless: I tried and been using this now for a while. Did not find much difference. I kept this at the Room corner as mentioned by many and the instruction for best performance. I have to keep the BASS low as I live in apartment. While hearing to good quality (preferable Blu Ray/4K quality), you can feel the bass on your Sofa :). I am very much satisfied with the performance and quality, will surely recommend to all. Get it and feel how your house vibrates (haha).

    Affordable wireless sub.

    I was needing an affordable wireless sub for my family room. I am only running a 3.1 configuration in this room, but I needed the sub to give some bass impact in movies and video games. I do not listen to music on this system, so I will not comment on the musicality on this sub as I feel it would be very boomy for your normal music. As it stands, I find the sub to be almost annoying in its propensity to just rumble when there is little going on during a tv show. I have tried to calibrate it to my system preferences, but at the end of the day, I think this thing is just a very muddy and boomy sounding sub. I have two other subs in the house and by far this is the lowest in terms of sound quality. That said, it has met the need for a sub in my family room that doesnt require a bunch of sheetrock repairs to wire it.

    I had this speaker but it was just too much for the 15 ft x 22 ft room ... I thought I had a large living room but I found out I have considered a medium size room ... I wouldn't suggest getting this unless you have a room that is 25 ft by 25 ft otherwise it is too powerful or if you like a lot of bass then this is good for you also. The only complaints about this is that when you power off your receiver - this will stay on and you have to manually turn it off and from time to time the wireless feature will lose signal but if this is plugged in it is an outstanding speaker. Overall, as long as you have the room for it and don't mind manually turning it on and off - it is a good speaker... if you have a small or medium room you are placing it in then I would suggest a lower wattage subwoofer

    Simply Amazing

    Breathed brand new life and punch to my system replacing a twelve plus year old Boston Acoustics sub that failed. Wireless setup is a breeze and the flexibility it offers in room placement is terrific. As long as the outlet to power it is nearby, you can put this essentially anywhere. Powered by 6 year old Yamaha Aventage receiver and Polk main, center, and rears. All sounds great together. And the Best Buy price match credit twelve days after purchase was SUPERIOR customer service. The price drop might indicate it's an end of life model but it's easily the best thing I have purchased this year! Highest marks.

    I had to return exchange at least twice and still yielded no results. For some reason the Sub would thump when I switch channels on the Tv or even switch the input to another source. I think there was something wrong with the amp inside the Sub cause I also hooked it up to 2 different A/V Receivers and it did the same thing which makes me believe that there is a defect in the Sub. I always bought Klipsch for all my Speaker needs but this was the first from Klipsch I ran into an odd issue like this. It happens. I still will buy Klipsch even though I had an issue with this Speaker.

    Awesome - SubWoofer. Was a great Choice

    I was working and researching many Sub Woofer for my A/V receiver and got a Polk PSW10. It was good but started giving problems after 15 days. I have been using this for last 1 week and so far have been great experience. I am in Apt, so cant get the 100% Sound experience as it will wake up other neighbors. I watched a few movies in the Netflix and YouTube and the Quality of Bass, Sound Experience have been awesome. Better than other Sub Woofers that I got. If you in own house, I guess you can test the 100% sound but if you are in Apt. you will hear the Vibrations on windows and sofa if you raise the Volume. I liked this very much. Good For the price that I got.

    I needed a remote sub-woofer and did an exhaustive search. The Klipsch Wireless met all my criteria. Plus I liked the fact that it contained the wireless hardware within the sub-woofer which kept the number of external devices to a minimum. One thing, however, is that the transponder has a very short wire (like 1 foot) to connect to the receiver. In my case I had to place the transponder on top of the receiver which is pretty warm. It would be nice to have like 3 feet of wire so I could place it next to the receiver or in a cooler place.

    Good entry level subwoofer

    It is a decent sub for what it is, I got it on sale and open boxed so my price was worth it. If I had to pay the normal price of $449.00, I would have bought an svs or something similar in the higher end range. It shakes the couch somewhat and if you sit right next to it you can feel it in your chest. Turning it up too high causes nothing but port noise. Had the r-12swi been on sale I probably would have gone for that one instead but that was $250 more. Overall it hits decently and is punchy, not muddy or distorted at all even at high volume. Its worth picking up if a small size is a requirement or if you can catch it on sale.

    Bought the klipsch 10swi on sale. Went into store for pickup. Box had damage to it and scratch on speaker. Got it even less than sale price. For what I paid, the speaker is great. The wireless connection has been flawless with great response. I have to say I wouldn't of paid more than what the sale price was. It is great for small to medium size room. And with it having the wireless option makes placement a breeze. I been playing it with a klipsch r- 15pm set and blends very well. I play cd, records and play video games and dvds through a Xbox one. All sound great.

    150 watts is more than you think..

    I debated whether or not to get the 300 watt "wired" version or go with the 150 watt wireless. I was surprised just how powerful the 150 watt sub was. I had the gain at about 25% and it was more than I needed. The versatility of the wireless feature made it much easier to place in the room without a cord. Only need power. The transmitter can be powered by USB which make it even easier to place near/at the source of the sub out.

    Bought this subwoofer to go with quality klipsch rear speakers during a great holiday sale. This was totally impulse based on promo, being very happy with brand. It had to be shipped as no store nearby carried it. First one shipped was defective (making a thump sound art each track change). Customer service Klipsch great. Best buy too..had to reorder again, this one works though leaving setting on auto and not blasting it will not always trip it to actively onl

    I have had Klipsch speakers for a long time and have updated to newer models over the years. This sub is a huge step up from the previous generation. This 10" greatly outperforms the previous generation 12" that I had. Chose to keep them both running at the time of install but you can clearly tell my older 12" can't keep up. I adjusted the crossover (and phasing) on my older 12" to only play low freq and let this guy to the heavy lifting. Very impressive.

    Klipsch sub

    This sub woofer rocks. I had to replace my sub and receiver due to power surge and I got this Klipsch because it was wireless and I hated having all these wires running around. It has more power and volume than my old larger one and the great low vibration in an action movie can't be beat. Awesome sub so if you're in the market for a new one you can't go wrong with this one. A little more expensive than some of the other ones but well worth the extra.

    I wanted a sub to fill out the needed low end in the living room. The wife was completely against it so I only bought this because the wife did not want another visible speaker in the living room. We tucked it on the other side of the room, behind the sofa and WOW... great sound and seamless audio over the Bluetooth connection... thankfully she does not read reviews and will not find out she was right...

    Got this for a great price, it seems to have some problems with super fast bass response like in hardcore metal music (but I'm no audiophile yet) and the auto turn on feature only works if there is some really deep bass. However overall I have no complaints, it makes movies\tv sound awesome and this thing will definitely blow up your house and annoy your neighbors

    I just hooked all this up yesterday with a Denon receiver and Klipsch speakers. It sounds pretty amazing! I was waiting for the wired sub to go on sale, but this wireless sub went on sale for a steal so I had to go with this one. I hooked it up using the wireless receiver and it worked flawlessly from the get go. Looking forward to the best movie and music experience EVER!

    Pretty much sums it up with review summary... Have waited and waited for them to be any sort of deal and with the recent Klipsch price drop it was a no brainer. I can't begin to tell you what a difference everything from general music to movies sound like now. I did add the Klipsch 300 watt sub for serious bass and again, couldn't be happier.

    I held off on purchasing this speaker until I thoroughly listened to my Klipsch Reference Monitors...they were lacking the ulra lows needed to immerse oneself entirely in my gaming experience. I returned and purchased hoping this was a good buy. NEVER regretted it. It thumps wonderfully and fills the void entirely. Get the BOOM to fill the ROOM!

    It does everything a 10-inch powered subwoofer should do. It is tight and clean. I find the fit and finish is ok the size is ok. I have not owned other 10-inch subwoofers but I do have a decent ear. I do not require a big wall of sound from this unit as it is only supporting a small powered desk speaker hooked up to my computer.
