Bic Acoustech PL-200 II review

The Bic Acoustech PL-200 II is a great solution for people who look for enough power since this solution features a BASH amplifier which can deliver up to 1000 W of the dynamic peak output. What about Bic Acoustech PL-200 II vs Polk Audio PSW505 their driver sizes are equal: 12 inches. The subwoofer also handles limits a lot better than other budget subs. We never heard any port noise, distortion, or other distressing sounds from the driver. This might be because it rolls off pretty sharply around 30Hz instead of trying to push to depths it isn’t capable of. Bic Acoustech PL-200 II

Polk Audio PSW505 review

The on-board amplifier develops power up to 300 W in continuous operation at peak 460 - very good for the AV class. The weight of the device, of course, is not small - a transformer power supply is huge. There is a mode of automatic inclusion "on a signal," and the subwoofer is turned off when it is absent for 15 minutes, the casing is mounted on metal supports. Concerning weight Polk Audio PSW505 has 19.5 kg vs 20.9kg in Bic Acoustech PL-200 II. Polk Audio PSW505 has a broad amplitude of frequency from 23 Hz to 160 Hz and is able to generate the low-end bass notes with incredible clarity. Polk Audio PSW505
