I was looking at svs, hsu, etc but being in an apt i think i would really restrict those especially since ill be here for another two years. I currently have a sub from my old speaker package hkts 15. I believe its a 10" 100 watt. I would expect the bic to destroy it right? All you guys seem to be really happy with it. Have you compared it to any other subs? For around 200 its a hell of a deal! Itd be 200 more for the cheapest SVS and spec wise doesnt really seem worth it.
Sorry this would also be used mainly for movies and gaming. My current receiver is an hk 247. It seems like a few of you either dont like this receiver or have had problems with it? Is it with this sub? Ive had it for about a year and its treated me great! Plus I got a sick deal on it.
It could get you kicked out FOR SURE. If you use common sense, find out when the neighbours are home and don't crank it you should be OK. Causes pictures on the walls to move from level.

But trance is the real reason why I want to get the F12.
I'm using it for both, probably more music than movies. I don't find it 'boomy' as everyone calls it. I turn my AVR sub setting down according to what I'm playing. Watched James Bonds new movie last night and had it turned to -4 and it was UNREAL! The opening chase scene, WOW. For some music, older, I have it up to +2 and for other music, newer better recorded, I have it from 0 to -2 or -4. It's an easy adjustment, ps; I have the sub volume set a 3 1/2 so I'm really not stressing anything. Awsum for both movies and music in my opinion, guess it depends on set up, your other speakers, source...

For under 200 bucks I don't believe you'll find better though. Good luck in your search, let us know what you get and how it sounds. Have a good day
I agree with you that it would be hard to find better at this $$. I drop by my friends store now and then, Audio One in the GTA. He has all kinds of subs, Paradigm is his biggest seller. Listened to a DSP3100 Thursday, 600 peak 200 RMS, 10", $450. It wasn't much different than mine, took my CD and Bluray in so I had a reference and the room is similar in size although set up for sound. Then he put on a 'Sub15' from the reference series, 3400W peak 1700RMS, 15", HOLY CRAP what a sub. Anyone looking to spend big $ this thing can cause drywall to come down, literally! For all who have just bought it and waiting, you will enjoy, it may surprise you.
