But i could get a very comparable sub and prob pocket $50 to $75.

I saw on Reddit that NXG has ceased production and this is just the remaining stock being sold off. So it's a good deal, but will likely be hard pressed to get any kind of support should something happen. For only $180, it's a pretty good gamble, but if you already have the RW-12D, +1 to Bond.

From past experience I've found the info on Reddit to be a bit of a crap shoot - as far as accuracy is concerned - so I wonder if NXG did indeed cancel production. Given the success they've had it would seem to be a foolish move if they did. I hope that's not the case, because I thought the sub was very capable.

If you take yourself too seriously expect me to do the exact opposite

Yeah I generally take it with a grain of salt as well, but they had copied the response from NXG, and they stated they are planning to just continue with their speaker line, and did acknowledge the auto-on issue, but that there was no fix planned. Take it with a grain of salt obviously, but the same thing happened with the RW-12D on Newegg before it was gone.

Do you have a link by chance? I'd be real interested in reading that post.

I haven't been suggesting the NXG for some time due to their issues and support complaints.

Ok, I'm keeping the RW12D - thanks, guys. Love it so far, was a steal at $280 right before newegg permanently went out of stock.

Those NXG NX-DECO5 satellite speakers look interesting if they are even close to the SQ of the NXG 4.1 would make a nice desktop setup.

They were pretty quick to resolve my issue earlier this spring, but that was after I wrote a fairly scathing email to them. Good new is that I can utilize one of the great features of Amex and get my money back on the one sub that couldn't be repaired.

Hey guys,

Looking for a sub under 200$ to go with my Affordable Accuracy monitors with a caveat. I have an Amazon gift card for 100$, so the sub has to come from Amazon. It'll be for my bedroom setup ...

It'll be strictly 100% music.

I saw some of the Dayton subs and the Martin Logan 8" available. Possibly Bic F12? Any recommendations?

Smaller bedroom size ...

I haven't heard the BIC RtR-EV1200, but its specs are analogous to those of the BIC F-12.

F-12 specs:

RtR-EV1200 specs:

http://www.bicamerica.com/showpage.p...e=3&spkrID=119

RtR-EV1200 offers/reviews on Amazon:

RtR-EV1200 offers/reviews on Newegg:

http://www.newegg.com/Product/Produc...82E16882007034

Some relative threads on AVS forum:

which of these cheaper subs?

BIC RtT-EV1200 vs BIC F-12

Kitsch Sub-12HG vs BIC F12 vs BIC RTR-EV1200 vs BIC V1120

Hello

I am from colombia, i see this subwoofer velodyne hgs 18 a 400us.


I would please me to recommend if 400us is a good buy or is it better to buy a new subwoofer as the svs PB1000,
Right now I have a subwoofer MFW15 AV123 and Sony STR-DN850 , I will feel the difference?

thank you very much for your help

room is likely either 16x16 or 12x20 - its a budget setup with polk 65t and center - not sure on surrounds yet, maybe dipoles. Id like to go 7.2 - would prefer a smaller sub footprint but should i go with 2x $300 subs or 1 x $600 sub? i guess i want sound quality not volume

I want to die in my sleep like grandpa... not kicking and screaming like the people in his car.

For quality get 1 sub. You can get another later.
I highly suggest the Rhythmik LV12r for $569.

To get the best out of a sub placement is critical. Google "sub crawl".
If it must go there 6" clearance for the port should be fine.

For me, in a 12 x 12 room, dual Polk PSW505's rocked my house. They didnt dig real deep, but they had great output and are a heck of buy. When they go on sale they can be had for $149 to $169 shipped.

If anyone lives in the Grand Rapids, MI area I have two Dayton Sub 1500's in great shape that I would like to get rid of. (I upgraded) and I never pushed these Dayton's hard at all... PM me for price if interested.
