That and the fact that it plays lower than the F12 makes it worth the extra money to me.

The auto on/off problem is fairly common among subwoofers in general and can easily be overcome simply by leaving it on all the time.
I just use the grenade scene to see how well the sub can handle the low LFE of that scene, not as an overall gauge of the sub itself. The V-1220 does pretty well for music, as well. It's not quite as tight as say the SVS PB-2000, but then again that's a whole other category of subs.

I got rid of the NXG and kept the Klipsch sub-12, which head to head I liked better than the NXG. I'm just speaking from my personal experiences with these subs that I've owned and experimented with. My point was the V-1220 is really a great sub for the price tag and it performs rather well for what it is. I also preferred the V-1220 over the Bic RTR-EV1200, which is a slight variation of the F12.

As for the auto on/off problem, of all the subs I've owned, only the NXG and the Dayton subs had this kind of issue. I wouldn't say it's common, at least not from all the subs I've owned.
