    12-Inch 150-Watt Powered Subwoofer, Black

    When you want your bass down low, you need a subwoofer as part of your home audio/theater system. Monoprice has the basses covered with this 12 inch, 150 watt (RMS) Powered Subwoofer model!

    This 12" sub is capable of producing 150 watts RMS (200 watts peak) output. It has a frequency response range of 50 to 250 Hz with a low-pass crossover filter, which can be adjusted through the full range. Gain and frequency knobs on the control panel allow you to adjust the crossover filter and the power output for the optimum blend and balance of bass output with your stereo or surround speakers.

    The subwoofer has multiple input options, which allow it to be used with any existing stereo or 5.1 (or greater) amplifier system. For each input there is a corresponding output.

    High-level inputs accept a full-range signal from the amplifier's stereo speaker outputs. When connecting the unit as part of a 5.1 system, these would be taken off the Front Left and Front Right outputs in parallel to the standard pair of front speakers. The subwoofer provides its own power and includes impedance matching circuitry, so this will not reduce the power output to the front speakers or affect the overall impedance load on the amplifier. The High-Level output can be used to connect to your stereo/front speakers or you can connect them in parallel at the amplifier.

    Additionally, the subwoofer has a set of right/left Line Level inputs. If using a standard stereo system, without a special subwoofer output, you can connect these to the left and right line level outputs on the amp. The subwoofer will then combine the signals to process the mono bass signal it needs to drive the speaker. If you are using an amplifier with a single mono subwoofer line level output, simply use an RCA "Y" cable to split the output and send it to the two line level inputs on the subwoofer. The Line Level outputs can be used to daisy chain additional subwoofers to provide even more room-filling bass!

    The subwoofer is housed in an attractive wooden cabinet, with a black finish, and measures 17" x 17" x 16 7/8" (H x W x D). The driver fires out the front and is covered by a black cloth grill. A 3 1/2" sound port is positioned underneath the enclosure.

    An optional "Auto-On" function puts the subwoofer system into power-saving standby mode after about 2 minutes of no audio input detected. Alternatively, the "Auto-On" function can be disabled, allowing the unit to be on whenever the power switch is in the "on" position. A 2 amp/250 volt fuse protects the system from short circuits or power overloads.

    Barely Audible

    Pros: Good price, vinyl wood finish matches Klipsch 5 speaker system almost identically.

    Cons: Very little volume, and haven't had much audio since day 1. Have it set to +10 dB on receiver and still almost no audio. My Klipsch tower speakers have far more bass (they can rattle the doors in my basement). If I turn the sub on or off I cannot really tell the difference, due the Klipsch covering the problem I didn't even notice it was under performing this badly until re-calibrating the receiver. Noticed almost no volume.

    12" Version connected to Emotiva Fusion 8100 receiver.

    Have it cranked to full, almost no volume. Maybe I got a dud, but this sub has never really performed. Luckily my tower speakers can product fair bass.

    Save a little more, buy a bigger sub

    Pros: The auto-on feature

    Cons: Amp is not strong enough. Bottoms out at higher volumes.

    I thought this sub would suffice but I was not impressed at all. At low volumes you cant even tell its on, I actually think it shuts itself off. Who knows, maybe its defective. At higher volumes it bottoms out real quick and sounds a bit distorted. Moreso the louder you go. I have to leave it at a lower volume which totally defeats the purpose of having a subwoofer in my opinion. I would not recommend this, not even as a starter subwoofer.

    Pros: Great lows, can s beat the price.

    Cons: None so far

    Have had awesome sound systems for years. This subwoofer delivers great lows. Can't beat the price. Yes you can spend more but why! I love it and recommend it.

    Basic sub

    • Anonymous,

    Pros: -Adds a low end growl to a basic stereo
    -Smaller, actually fits perfectly in the corner I picked out for it
    -After spending a few minutes adjusting it, not bad for a $60 sub, and hasn't fully broken in yet

    Cons: -Bright power LED. Seriously, it lights up a good chunk of the wall behind it

    -Even though it's a good $60, 60w 8" sub, it's still a $60, 60w 8" sub. Super low frequencies are still missing, and not the most detailed sound out there.

    I have a pair of JBL Loft 40s hooked up to a cheap 40wpc amp as a bedroom stereo, which isn't bad for a stereo that came out to about $80 total as far as overall volume and sound quality go. My biggest complaint being bass, or lack of it. Not wanting to grab a $500 12" sub for the system, when these dropped to $50 (with discount code) with free shipping, I grabbed one, and it pairs together well.

    great deal

    Pros: Warm, full bass

    Cons: Not the tightest bass

    This is not a thousand dollar, 500 watt sub. It probably won't get you evicted and may not reproduce explosions perfectly...but for adding some warm, fat, tight bottom end to a good pair of bookshelf speakers, it's the best sub you'll get anywhere near this price.
