Fry's has the Klipsch Reference 12" (R-12SW) subwoofer for $189 online and in-store with weekly promo code. Cheapest price I've seen since BF.

This subwoofer is an upgrade from the Synergy Series 12 subwoofer that Newegg on EBay currently has for $169.

From what I understand, it depends on the application. This one has a front-firing, copper-spun woofer, which makes for a more precise bass than the Sub12, which is down-firing and doesn't have the copper-spun membrane. I agree that the Sub12 is probably the better sub for movies, but for music, I would go with this one.

Companies love to butcher the English language so that words become meaningless. In this case, a cheap commercial subwoofer is given the branding of "reference", which is supposed to denote recording studio quality speakers that recreate as closely as possible the source material (concert or studio recording). There is nothing reference about this speaker. Sorry.

And for those wondering what a real reference speaker is like. Here you go.

Your definition is the same that I've used. Ironically your reference for "Reference" denotes it to be the standard that the manufacturer uses to test the production line.

This one still better for the average all rounder (music and movies) ?
