Bic Acoustech PL-200 II review

Comparing Bic Acoustech PL-200 II vs Klipsch R-112SW I found out that both have 12-inch drivers. The new and improved BIC Acoustech PL-200 II offers improved bass performance and more placement flexibility than the original top-rated BIC PL-200. Like the PL-200, the PL-200 II is powered by an audiophile state-of-the-art BASH amplifier capable of delivering up to 1000-watts dynamic peak output. The subwoofer is poly-injected and it features a high power magnet with long excursion surround. The frequency response ranges from 22 Hz to 200 Hz. Bic Acoustech PL-200 II

Klipsch R-112SW review

With a maximum power of 600 watts, the Klipsch R-112SW subwoofer with a first-class built-in amplifier is perfect for sounding a spacious room. Having a moderate body size the column is placed on the floor. Due to the massive MDF walls, the speakers do not twitch. has weight of 22.1 kg vs 20.9 kg from Bic Acoustech PL-200 II. A magnetically shielded 305 mm woofer with a ceramic-metal diffuser provides accurate bass reproduction in the frequency range 24-125 Hz. The phase inverter on the front panel is designed to form a three-dimensional scene with a dense and deep bass. Klipsch R-112SW
