This deal is good ending 4/4 online and I just got it for this price in my local store as well. I believe this is the lowest ever on this.

Yes if you purchase it within 30 days. But be careful Costco doesn’t return the tax for the price difference

I guess "great" is relative to expectations but... it shouldn't be surprising that these generally aren't regarded as great subs compared to the really popular ones that are 3-4x this price. I haven't owned a fancier sub than this personally, but the collective wisdom of the internet seems to agree that really good sounding subs start in the RSL/SVS area which is pretty much $400 and up.

But in terms of my experience with these... I have the 10", and unless the similarly priced 12" is worlds different, it just doesn't always sound good. It will rattle the house fine and adds punch to movies but music is rarely clear and it definitely gets boomy and weird sounding with any volume through it. I have to leave it pretty low or it starts taking over whatever I'm listening to (and not in a good way).

But for $150? It's a great sub.
I love how some people say this sub is just okay, then go to recommend a $600 or more sub that's a lot better. Well, yeah, of course a sub way more will sound better, but in this price range this is probably about as good as it gets.
Looks like Klipsch might be turning over their subwoofer line or something? The 10 inch version of this is now showing as discontinued on their site and this is the price where I used to see the 10.

Not that these are great subs but you probably can't do much better for $150.

Thanks. Corrected. Have this installed now. Still dialing it in but much punchier than my old 12" Sony subwoofer. Much better match for the rest of my system. I'd heard some reviews that said this was boomy but in my setup I don't find that to be true at all.

I'm not going to be able to avoid at this price. Was comparing to the other 12" subs in the Klipsch lineup, not sure I'll be able to justify the price difference. Replacing a 20 year old htiab 10" yahama to go along with my reference premier 5.1 set up.

Would this be a good match for Klipsch RP 8000F front and RP504C center speakers? These front speakers itself provides good sub effect. This is in a dedicated media room of size 18 ft by13 ft. Thanks

Get the R-112SW instead or the Monoprice one for $700 at Target.
