I bought a Klipsch RW10D subwoofer a Pioneer elite vsx81txv two rb51 bookshelfs two rf82 towers and an rc52bla center channel. All Klipsch. It sounds good but I feel now that I should have got the 12" subwoofer. Is there a big differance in 10"-12"?

What size is your room in cubic ft? This would include any adjoining rooms not separated by a wall.... This will give us a better idea if you need more sub.

Assuming you have 9' ceilings, you have just over 4000 cubic ft to cover. That is a medium-large area, definitely requiring a 12" sub. Probably 2 if you like to get jiggy with it. ;-)


Usually with a 12" driver you have more power behind it, thus raising the SPL level. This definitely applies to budget sub like we are discussing here.


I recently upgraded from a 10" SVS to a 12" from SVS and the difference was very noticable.

The driver is the woofer itself. Just another name.
