onkyo tx-nr609 with bic f12 or other?

post #1 of 7
Thread Starter 
Hey guys I've been seeing some good reviews about this bic sub that I've never heard of but I have also arm that the psw 505 had some lte setting that I can use if my receiver had it.

I believe that my receiver is capable of this setting and I basically want to make sure that I am buying the right sub.

For the bic price point can I do any better with the onkyo receiver? I am currently using rti4s for fronts and am looking for a ported sub.

Merry christmas everyone!

Subwoofer brands and receiver brands have nothing to do with each other, so don't worry about the brand of sub you get.

The Bic F12 is a good sub if you're going to watch mainly movies. I have 2 of them and my main usage is movies. It is said on this forum that the PSW505 is a little better. Either way, they are 2 good budget sub. Personally, if they are both around the same price, go for the 505 as I think it may be a tad more reliable. I would also look at the Premier Acoustic PA-120 for around the same price and it should perform as good if not better. It's the bigger and heaviest one of the bunch so that's a plus in my books.

I guess that's the crappy thing about buying online from amazon, you have to know what you want exactly or else it its very difficult to return.

I may go to best buy our future shop and see of they have any of these subs and buy them so I can test them then return then and go buy online.

Sorry I forgot to newsroom that this will be for games movies and music, split usage is 1/3 each.

The BIC F12 is considered quite reasonable but seldom is the 505 sold for that low of a price.

That's cheaper than amazon but the exact same price as the premier sub.


which one would be better for my needs? I believe they are both ported too. Which I like.

I cant speak for the Polk 505 as I have never had the chance to listen/feel it in person but for $170 at NewEgg it seems to be a good price! I can however comment on Premier Acoustic as I own the PA-150, its a fantastic sub!! I use to have dual Bic Pl-200's as I replaced them with the PA-150 and couldnt be hapier... esp for $370 shipped. I do realise the 150 is much bigger than the 120 but just going by build quality there is quite a bit of differnace. Dont get me wrong, the Bic Pl-200's are a very good sub as it did well for HT. Hard to say about the Polk but IMHO I would put the Pa-120 over the F-12.
