Got myself a SW12 too... will try to run it in for a while. So far, pretty good. But haven't really pushed it hard yet.


Wah, what's the sub on the left front corner?

The sub on the left was built by bro synthesis. 12" SVS driver and a 300W sub amp.

My wife asked today... "Last week I thought you said you bought something new. Where is it?"... The SW12 is small enough to go unnoticed when swapped out from a smaller Polk Audio 8"... lol.. :D

SW12 is value for money. I have to agree with Pete it does not dig too low but if you need more SPL, you can always go for multiple subs.

Does anyone try to stack the SW12?
