Do you know how does this compare to HSU's VTF2-MK3 ?? I was planning on buying the VTF2 MK3 ... but it's almost $200 more then this. Is this comparable?

This will be great if you are 80% HT and 20% (or less) Music. There is also the Emotiva Ultra12 sub on sale too if you want to compare that HSU you suggested with it. I have no experience with either except the Bic PL-200 (using one right now until I can afford a sub around the $1k price range)

The PL-200 is worth the price difference for sure. I went with the PL-200 a while back for $270 and I couldn't be happier for the price. This has to be one of the best bang's for your buck when buying new.

I've never heard of this brand. Frequency response seems similar to the polk psw505. How do those two compare?

Have you heard the F-12? What makes the PL-200 better for the money? The price difference between the F-12 and the PL-200 is considerable -- $160 vs $250.

The overall design of the PL-200 is better. It was designed by Dr. Hsu and uses a BASH amp whereas the F12 has neither of those going for it. There is tons of talk about the comparison of the two subs on avsforums.

Plus if you think about it, two subs made by the same company with one being more money typically means it is better for one reason or another. I could understand if you were comparing two difference brand entry level subs, but not two of the same brand. (Sure the PL-200 is newer, but it has still been out for a decent amount of time and they certainly sell a lot of them).

To sum up the "noticeable" differences:

F12 has 150W RMS vs PL-200 250W RMS
F12 is 475W dynamic peak output vs PL-200 being 1000W
F12 advertises 25Hz-200 and PL-200 22Hz-200 (and I know at least the PL-200 goes lower than 22Hz)

Those are pretty significant differences alone.

Hovers around that mark at various places online.

Yes, I'm certain the PL-200 is better -- but is it worth the extra money for all people? I own the BIC F-12 and it is an excellent home theater sub that hits hard -- shakes my house, etc. I think a lot of people would be satisfied with it for home theater. If I wanted to upgrade to a nicer sub, would the jump to the PL-200 really satisfy me over the F-12? I don't know. I'd be skeptical that it'd be enough of an improvement to be worth the extra money -- at that price I would probably consider spending more to get into the Elemental or SVS or nicer HSU stuff to really get a serious improvement. But that's speculation -- I'd have to listen to the PL-200 to know how big a leap it is over the F-12.

Also, the F-12 DOES have a BASH amp.
