Big, heavy and powerful

A lightweight is the Klipsch R-112SW Subwoofer with nearly 22 kg not. The dimensions of the 12-inch model also make it an eye-catcher. Its MDF case is graced with a brushed, black polymer veneer. This offers a clear contrast to the copper-colored membrane made of cerametallic. This material developed by Klipsch is characterized by a very good stiffness-to-mass ratio and admirable damping properties. The R-112SW is powered by a class D digital power amplifier with 300 watts RMS. This allows the subwoofer a frequency response of 24 Hz to 125 Hz and 118 dB sound pressure. This is more than sufficient for an exciting home cinema evening.

Practice-oriented equipment

All controls can be found on the back of the case. The compulsory Gain control is accompanied by a controllable low-pass filter and a phase switch that allows the phase to be rotated through 180 degrees. As connections, a line-level and an LFE input for multi-channel sound systems are available.

An operating display in the form of an LED is located on the front, top left. It will also signal you when the R-112SW is in standby mode. With the help of a selector you can set the mode. If the switch is set to “Automatic”, the subwoofer will switch on as soon as a signal is present.
