Features

What about Bic America F12 specs the subwoofer is equipped with a 12-inch woofer and an amplifier with a working power of 150 watts and a peak of 475 watts. I tested BIC F12 with frequencies about 150 Hz — 200 Hz and this sub does a great job up to there without sounding muddled. BIC F12 produces more bass than a home theater needs thanks to the peak power of the amplifier. The bass is loud, deep, tight, and powerful. The subwoofer still shakes the house with deep bass. There is a feeling that the bass fills all space of the house and even my neighbors can hear my music. Still, the manufacturer rates its sensitivity at 90 decibels – this high rating is indicative of the speaker's ability to efficiently convert power to sound.

Design and build

BIC F12 is large and heavy, however, it is made in a minimalist style. The cubic styling looks classic and attractive. The black case is made of a thick finish-black laminate MDF. Thick walls prevent unwanted resonances and the formation of standing waves. On the front panel, there is a 12-inch injection molded long throw woofer. There are rubber bushings for fixing the fabric mesh to the plastic pins on the front panel too. Left and right sides are empty. The subwoofer controls are located on the rear panel. The cube-shape cabinet, although large and heavy, is classic and attractive. It is solidly constructed from durable materials and finished in black laminate. The black mesh grille is removable, allowing you to display the stylish, black-trimmed metallic cone if you prefer.

This BIC America speaker has several connection options. The sub-in connector allows you to switch between a Dolby Pro-Logic receiver and a Dolby Digital 5.1, 6.1, 7.1 or DTS surround-sound receiver. If you have an older two-channel AV receiver that doesn’t have a sub-out, you can use the speaker level input and output as an intermediary between it and the subwoofer.
