Klipsch R-120SW review

Active 12-inch subwoofer Hi-Fi class. The frequency range is equal to – 29-120 Hz. The R-120SW has larger dimensions than the younger model in this series and is designed for use in large rooms. The subwoofer body made of selected MDF thicker. This design has good acoustic inertness, that is, it does not color the sound even at high volume.

Klipsch R-120SW weighs 14 kg vs SVS SB-1000, which has 12 kg. The woofer is equipped with a graphite diffuser (IMG) and has high rigidity with low weight. To increase the sound output, the speaker is provided with a lightweight voice coil and a powerful magnet.
