The Monoprice 9723 review will be a soft piece for those who want the perfect performance for sound theater. This is an interesting combination of great cases, great speakers, and a good amplifier. If you want enough bass at a very reasonable price, this is a good choice. Finding a balance between the features you need and the unnecessary marketing tricks can be a daunting task. Read the text below to make a wise decision.
Among most interesting Monoprice 9723 specs this 12" sub is capable of producing 150 watts RMS (200 watts peak) output. It has a frequency response range of 50 to 250 Hz with a low-pass crossover filter, which can be adjusted through the full range. Gain and frequency knobs on the control panel allow you to adjust the crossover filter and the power output for the optimum blend and balance of bass output with your stereo or surround speakers. An optional "Auto-On" function puts the subwoofer system into power-saving standby mode after about 2 minutes of no audio input detected. The "Auto-On" function can be disabled, allowing the unit to be on whenever the power switch is in the "on" position.
The appearance is unpleasant enough. The close-up isn't nicely constructed, but it doesn't attract much attention anyway because it's all black and sits in the corner. Even if it is not visually noticeable, it will be difficult to hide it in most rooms. The subwoofer is housed in an attractive wooden cabinet, with a black finish, and measures 17.0" x 17.3" x 17.5". The driver fires out the front and is covered by a black cloth grill. A 3 1/2" sound port is positioned underneath the enclosure.
The subwoofer has multiple input options, which allow it to be used with any existing stereo or 5.1 (or greater) amplifier system. For each input there is a corresponding output. Additionally, the subwoofer has a set of right/left Line Level inputs. If using a standard stereo system, without a special subwoofer output, you can connect these to the left and right line level outputs on the amp. If you are using an amplifier with a single mono subwoofer line level output, simply use an RCA "Y" cable to split the output and send it to the two line level inputs.
