What customers say about "Size & Weight"
Klipsch R-112SW Subwoofer, Black
  • This subwoofer definitely rattles my medium-size room and is without a doubt, the BIG DAWG of my 7.1 system and so for me, definitely worth the price.
  • This is a large-ish sub, but I wouldn't characterize it as a monster. It didn't seem unduly heavy, nor did it take up much more room than the 10" Infinity it replaced.
  • The wife was scared of the size but now agrees that it for movies and music it is great .
  • It is large, but actually compact, considering its output and the kind of company it keeps.
  • Very nice sound for movies. This a large heavy subwoofer that is pretty cumbersome though.
SVS PB-2000 12" 500-watt Powered Subwoofer (Single)
  • Nice looking, heavy and big - the real deal.
  • This subwoofer is a monster in sound and in size (it's HUGE) and I can't say enough wonderful things about it.
  • This thing is huge! Too big considering its performance.
  • The only downside may be its size, but with ported subwoofers, size matters.

What customers say about "Audio"
Klipsch R-112SW Subwoofer, Black
  • This is ported in the front, and has 600 max watts. This subwoofer FILLS my living room with RICH, HEAVY, and PHENOMENAL bass.
  • I'm so impressed with the quality of this subwoofer, and in the quality and volume of bass it creates.
  • Hands down, I'm ecstatic about this subwoofer. Don't think twice, buy this subwoofer. You'll be happy you did, trust me! Huge bass!
  • I'm really liking this sub so far. Really clean tight sounding base. I've had several subs over the years but this is much better.
  • I've only had this for one day, so far so very very good. Looks and sounds great.
SVS PB-2000 12" 500-watt Powered Subwoofer (Single)
  • This sub woofer is amazing, i listen to a lot of bass heavy music so the upgrade from my 8 inch 100 watt Yamaha to this was much needed. this sub woofer can pump out super low frequencies with ease.
  • Its ability to switch frequencies on the fly is what differentiates it from other sub woofers on the market. when listening to heavy bass EDM such as G Jones, Tipper, or Bassnectar it performs wonderfully and can create massive sound pressure in my room with no problem
  • Good sub that delivers solid low frequencies.
  • Punchy, tight and accurate sound down to about 60hz, Significantly worse from there down.
  • The low frequency sound gets very muddy and sloppy at times with certain music. Especially with hip hop/trap/trance/deep house

What customers say about "Features"
Klipsch R-112SW Subwoofer, Black
  • The setup is undramatic, if you've dealt with subs before. Gain, crossover, phase, on/off...neither more or less difficult than expected.
  • The driver has a serious look - a thick rubber surround, a metallic cone, and a large slot-vent.
  • Fit and finish is awesome. I personally really like the wrap on this sub. It looks and feels like brushed aluminum.
  • With the powerful 300W amplifier, I only had to set the gain halfway (50%) in order to match my Polk RTi A9 front tower speakers.
  • This sub looks beautiful and it's way more powerful than the rear-ported R-12SW / R-120SW.
SVS PB-2000 12" 500-watt Powered Subwoofer (Single)
  • Very articulate bass with excellent control and dynamics.
  • The oak finish also looks fantastic, so if aesthetics are a concern do not worry.
  • RCA input quit working after a few weeks.
  • The veneer finish is a little cheap, moderately easy to peel at the edges. Knicked the corner when carrying the sub into another room and it peeled back.

What customers say about "Connectivity"
Klipsch R-112SW Subwoofer, Black
  • This thing is a massive beast. Pair these up with any hi fidelity system and the bass will blow you away!!
  • This SW perfectly complements my new RP-450C center, RP-240S surround sound, RP-140SA rear, RP-260F floor speakers and Yamaha RX-V779.
  • I have them connected to a Marantz SR7010 AVR. The crossover is at about 100hz and I have the gain set to about 1/2 right now......it's amazing!
  • The subwoofer is perfectly connected to my speakers, the sound is just a masterpiece!
  • Poor grounding. Emits a loud hum even when disconnected from the AVR. It becomes even worse when an audio cable is connected.
