Going by this graph, you'd want more like 105-115dB SPL at 20Hz, or about +10dB more assuming you're 3-4m away. But maybe I'm misinterpreting (not sure about A vs C-weighting in this context). Or...

What's "small"?

Isn't 95 dB SPL @1m rather loud? Or is it that in addition to factoring in the distance you need to add A-weighting, and so low-frequency 95dB is perceived more like 55-65dB?

If anyone still has the original box, what are its dimensions? Did you get it in just that box, or with an extra shipping box over it?

Did you solve the problem in the end?

Would EQing down the mid frequencies practically extend its range, particularly in the low frequencies?

I might want to place the sub next to a PC, so shielding seems useful.

H100II considered superior, but based on what? I haven't found any direct comparisons of frequency response or anything else.

I don't get why they do it. I don't see how the cost of an extra box could end up being cheaper than the occasional replacement they have to do due to shipping damage.

In what kind of packaging did you people get the F12? On YouTube I see BIC subs come in flimsy colorful cardboard boxes. Anyone got it double boxed in a proper shipping box?

Maybe OLED will solve these issues. But so far it seems OLEDs do have some uniformity issues, and may also suffer from Plasma-like image retention.

For example, here they measured 0.046 cd/m^2...

What sizes are they both? Can you post photos? I'm unhappy with the blacks on the 50" W705B. I can't be sure without a direct comparison, but I think it's worse the the 42" W653A I had a year before,...
