Hi, i was looking on Google BIC America F12 vs PSW 505 and most people says F12 For movies and 505 for Music,

i will be using one for 50% games and 50% movies not much music.


The BIC America is around 200$

PSW505 250$

and i found this one not sure if its good as the other DSW PRO 440wi 8" for 242$ Manufacturer refurbished

on ebay.


250$ max budget

Well, you're comparing 12-inch subs to an 8-inch. Guess it depends on the room size and what existing speakers you already have.


I have the Polk DSW Pro 550wi (10-inch) in a 11x16 room and I almost feel as if it is overkill; it definitely hits and rumbles hard. I very easily could have gone with the 8-inch version.


Is space an issue?

I think it'd be a wash between the two honestly.


Both have similar frequency response ratings, both 12" drivers. The Bic's cabinet size is a lot bigger though. The Polk also has more continuous wattage; not that it's going to make or break your choice though.


May as well just go with whichever one you get the better price on and that you like the looks of best. There are plenty of happy owners of both.
