Klipsch Sub-12HG Review and Specs

Klipsch Sub-12HGGreat sound begins with great bottom end. The Klipsch Sub-12HG subwoofer delivers the two lowest octaves of the ten humans can hear, intensifying your listening and viewing experiences. The down-firing driver and rear-firing port produces increased bass response with low distortion, filling the room with warm, rich bass you feel almost as much as you hear. See the Klipsch Sub-12HG for more facts.

Features

Concerning Klipsch Sub-12HG specs, the unit gets its intensity from a 12-inch, down-firing driver coupled to a highly efficient BASH amplifier that creates 300 watts of continuous power and 650 watts of dynamic power. The subwoofer's built-in, steep-slope low-pass crossover is continuously adjustable from 40 to 120Hz. A phase control facilitates acoustical integration of the subwoofer with the other speakers in the system. An "auto power" feature enables the subwoofer to turn itself on and off automatically, based on the presence or absence of an audio signal. A blue/red dual color LED display on the front of the subwoofer indicates whether the unit is on or in standby mode.

Design and build

The Klipsch Sub-12HG subwoofer driver is contained in a well-built MDF cabinet with a brushed polymer veneer surface. This is raised off the ground a couple of centimeters by some rather odd spaceship like looking adjustable feet. Despite the advantage of these feet being able to be placed in multi-positions to prevent cabinet movement on hard floors, we can’t help thinking that they seem out of place. They’re all shiny, look at odds to the design of the cabinet, and they unnecessarily stick out. Also pretty cool is the ability to set your crossover frequency anywhere between 40hz to 120hz, in order to get the best low end for your particular room. And finally, there’s an LED light on the front of the unit that shows red when the amp is on standby and blue when the unit is on. We like that too.
