I was getting dissatisfied with my Polk PSW110 which I got several months ago. It was tight but it lacked power and base I was looking for in both films and music. This was my fourth subwoofer coming from my newbie Bose 15 Lifestyle series I had 8 years ago, to an Onkyo 990THX subwoofer which was pretty awesome for movies but just ok for music and a Polk PSW10. (I am a slow learner). I was thinking of upgrading to a Polk PSW125 or a PSW505, but after having 2 Polk subs, three strikes would be unforgiveable. I made the mistake of getting Polk subs because I initially thought that I had to match my sub with my TSI series speakers. After months of extensive and eye straining research, I recently picked up a Bic Acoustech PL-200. Originally I was looking at HSU's VTF-2.3, but the price is just too much for my budget and the economy. Also, the area where I needed the sub to be was limited with a maximum width of only 16 inches. I also read that that HSU team had helped in the design of the BIC subs, so I thought why not give it a try. I got the PL-200 for $280 out the door from Mike Embers' (Acoustic Sound) Las Vegas warehouse. It was convenient since I live not from from the warehouse. I am still breaking it in with constant but low bass music from Nora Jones, Astrud Gilberto, Basia, Sade and MJ's Thriller. After just a day of so so bass, it finally came alive and my Ella Fitzgerald and Charlie Parker CDs never sounded so good. I could hear clearer and more detailed bass strings. The sub covered the whole 15 x 45 room with low bass which is pretty satisfying to the ears. It also complemented my Polk CS20 (bought on sale from Newegg for $149), TSI400s (bought open box for $180 each from Cowboom) and TSI200s (bought on sale for $240) being driven by a Pioneer VSX-1019. The PL-200 matches my Polks as the BIC also had a glossy black piano finish exactly like the Polks. I'll wait several more days before I test it with the opening scene from Saving Private Ryan. But from what I have heard so far I am sure it will deliver. I read from one reviewer that what is good for music is good for movies but not vice versa. I have come to agree with this assessment.
