There's noway a sub can be discontinued for a year or better and still be readily for sale ??
It's a good sub for a small area, but I would not recommend trying to fill a room size of let's say a 20 x 21. I would not pay anymore than 299.00 for it. Right now mine is setting idle as I now have a HSU VTF-3.3 and a 3.4 subs. Keep in mind the Klipsch is not on the same playing field as the HSU's.
No one is saying this is in the same league as your pair of Hsu's.
For the price of those two you could buy what 7 of the Klipsch...
What we ARE saying is that for $300 the price/ performance ratio can not be beat...

I received mine yesterday and hooked it up last night. Definitely packs a nice punch and is a great replacement for the JBL that went out on me that was like 10 years old. That one was $400 back then when I got it.

I was playing some Halo 4 last night and the bass added some really nice depth to the sound, especially in gun shots where I could feel it in my chest with the subwoofer.

For $300 I'm definitely happy with the purchase.

So I got mine in (from newegg) and it seems to be working fine, but arrived with a front grill damaged from shipment. The top two "plugs" that go into the sub broke off while attached. I'm pretty surprised because both the box packaging and outer box newegg extra packaging seemed secure, but it happened.

While the grill still stays on with just the lower two plug, the top rattles against the sub while in use, so this just isn't acceptable. I contacted newegg and asked if I could get a replacement grill and they're gonna check and get back to me. Otherwise I was going to contact Klipsch. Does anyone have any experience with Klipsch on these kinds of things? I'd rather not ship the entire thing back if at all possible to get a full replacement or refund when the sub itself seems to be working fine.

It certainly wouldn't hurt to give Klipsch a call. They'd likely send you a new grill once you've explained the situation.

Haven't heard from them today, looks like the e-mail was likely ignored and I'll have to call again tomorrow.

It shows in the main listing as $499, but if you click to go to the actual product page here it shows $299.

Thanks for that buddy. I grabbed on too. You'd think they would have the sale price on both pages.

It has a sensor. Do you mean "remote"? You can program a Harmony for it:

Add device -> amplifier -> amplifier -> Klipsch -> RW-12D

Ok from you are saying it is already remote capable, I just need to have a programmed remote to send the signal to it. No other hardware need.

Exactly. Think of it like if you bought a TV and they did not give you the remote. smile.gif

I just added the device to my Harmony One remote and it was listed in the Harmony database exactly as LastButNotLeast showed.

That makes sense. I wonder if they have codes for direct tv remotes?

They definitely do. Just about any IR gadget you can think of is in there.

Interesting that they show more stock as of 11/29. These have been out of production for almost a year, right?

 

Congrats to those who got one in the nick of time.

I missed out and am in the market for 1 sub.... Just don't know much about them! Have a big open room (20x20x10) and only prewired for one sub in the front left of the room.

I would appreciate any recommendation to complete my 5.1... My 5 speakers are the Klipsch CDT-5800-C... I am looking at HTD.com for other speakers throughout the house...their best woofer looks like this one: http://www.htd.com/Products/powered-subwoofers/Level-THREE-Powered-Subwoofer

Would that be a good one for my room? What do you guys recommend? Anything in $300-$1000 range. Thanks!

If I had your budget I'd shoot for this one:

http://www.powersoundaudio.com/products/xv15

I don't think the one in your link would have enough power for your size room. Head over to the Subwoofer forum.

+1

Nothing from HTD is going to work in a room that size.

The XV15 is a solid choice. Another option might be the HSU VTF-15H.

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

I just ordered the Cadence CSX-12 Mark II for $279 w/ free shipping from NewEgg (65% off). There's a very favorable review from JimWilson on this site as well as Sound+Vision: http://www.soundandvisionmag.com/article/review-cadence-csx-12-mark-ii-subwoofer

My family room is 18x14 with 9 ft ceilings. It's open to the kitchen adding another 16 ft to the 18. There's a small doorway without a door to a hallway open to the foyer and also to the dining room.

How much of this Needs to be considered for the klipsch to work?
