Dayton Audio SUB-1200 vs BIC America F12

BIC America F12 review

The subwoofer is equipped with a 12-inch subwoofer. BIC America F12 vs Dayton Audio SUB-1200 has 150 W nominal output power, another model has 120 W. Equipped with an amplifier with a peak power of 475 watts. I think that the power of the subwoofer is not only enough for home use, but a party in the backyard.

It is large and heavy but made in a minimalist style. The black case is made of thick black MDF finish. The controls are located on the back panel: volume control, frequency control, stereo input and output jacks, RCA jack, power button, and power indicator.

Dayton Audio SUB-1200 review

The 12-inch subwoofer system can create realistic home theater bass effects even in large rooms. The frequency response is 25 Hz-140 Hz, and the amplifier is indicated as an RMS value of 120 watts.

Used MDF has a thickness of almost 0.75 ". The inside design is perfect, everything is clean and tidy, with no signs of poor workmanship. Unique appearance with rounded vertical edges and a distinctive grille. Even the vinyl film is applied quite well, without a single flaw.
