I currently own the f12 and just purchased rw12d... Can I use them both or would I be better off just using the rw12d.

Depends on how well you can tweak them individually and placement as well as other factors. I am in exactly the same situation. I live in an apt and recently got the RW. I was going to try to use them both but as much as I tried the F12 just made the RW sound bad. Sometimes I will use both for movies just to kind of fill the room a little better (the RW really doesnt need the help) but for music I turn the F12 off.

No, Mr. Bond. I expect you to die!

The RW-12D has a lower port tune. Running both subs will eliminate the lower frequency reproduction ability of the RW-12D, because the BIC F12 will basically be running out of phase below its port tune - which negates the RW-12D's sound at those frequencies.

So yes you'll get more volume with two, but you'll actually have less low frequency sound than if you ran the RW-12D alone. Meaning say about 22-32hz will be negated on the RW-12D --- which really just negates the reason to have bought an RW-12D in the first place. Sell the F12 and buy another RW-12D if you want more spl.
