12 inch powered sealed subwoofer from Starke Audio as a good budget sub. Decent reviews. Half price...July 4th sale. They have had 2 for 1 sales in the past year or 2.

450 watt RMS, 900W peak amp.
Has XLR which is very rare at this price point.
Note that this is a sealed not a ported sub....should sound good for 2 channel music too. Might need 2 of these to get more SPLs however.
Reportedly goes down to 16 Hz. I have read it goes down to the low 20 Hz range previously.

Review:





Review on the next model, SW15

Duties & Brokerage fees r the biggest unknown IMO.

FREE shipping to Canada is nice.

Thinking about a pair of SW12. Too bad that SW15 is not on sale.

Why is it junk? Honestly I'm looking to replace my Polk HTS 10" (yes this one for sure is junk it was just the first I could afford years ago) and curious as to why u think this is junk. Obviously an SVS would be the best (or one of) but wondering what's wrong with this

I believe that duties and brokerage fees would amount to about CAD$300-$400 for a pair of SW12 a year ago when it was BOGO for US$699 or so....amount noted from a fellow member at a CDN HT FB group.

Some1 at AVS forums posted CEA test results from Audioholics between SVS SB1000 Pro and Starke SW12:

SB1000 Pro

16 hz NA
20 hz 88 db
25 hz 94.7 db
31.5 hz 101.2 db
40 hz 106.1 db
50 hz 111.5 db
63 hz 113.7 db
80 hz 112.2 db
100 hz 110.3 db
125 hz 108.5 db

SW12

16 hz 85.7 db
20 hz 90.5 db
25 hz 98.2 db
31.5 hz 103.1 db
40 hz 109.8 db
50 hz 112.6 db
63 hz 111.2 db
80 hz 110.7 db
100 hz 111 db
125 hz 109.1 db

Sw12 beats the SB1000 Pro as the SVS has less powerful amp at 325W RMS...vs 450W for SW12.
