Klipsch R-12SWi vs Bic Acoustech PL-200 II

Bic Acoustech PL-200 II review

The PL-200 II is a great device, equipped with a BASH amplifier that is familiar to all music lovers. BIC Acoustech PL-200 II vs Klipsch R-12SWi has 250 W power, Klipsch has 200 W nominal output power. BIC Acoustech can play audio up to 1000 watts. It plays audio at high volume and without distortion.

The glossy case with lacquered upper and lower surfaces looks brilliant. The chromed metal driver gives it a modern look. You do not need to worry too much about its placement, as the ports are located in the front, not the back.

Klipsch R-12SWi review

Klipsch R-12SWi is equipped with a 12-inch bass speaker, which is located on the front panel and is closed by a removable protective grille. Klipsch R-12SWi has a wireless connection (transmitter included) vs Bic Acoustech PL-200 II hasn’t. Wireless connectivity greatly simplifies the placement of the Klipsch R-12SWi in a room.

The subwoofer housing is made of thick MDF. The front panel of the subwoofer has a power-on LED. The bass has a cast graphite diffuser with external copper spraying that dampens unwanted vibrations and resonances. On the back of the Klipsch R-12SWi is a traditional set of controls.
