How Big the Bang? • Average SPL from 25 to 62 Hz 105 dB • Maximum SPL 112 dB at 50 Hz • Dollars per dB $6.66
What About Setup? I measured the crossover range as only 65 to 80 Hz, so you'll need main speakers with solid bass capability for a smooth blend.
How Does It Sound? The S120P II delivered strong bass - better than 107 dB at frequencies above 32 Hz - but it couldn't play loud enough at the lowest frequencies to provide a strong sense of envelopment and thunder.
The Bottom Line A nicely styled, high-performance sub at an even nicer price.
