The R-12 SW is one of the smaller ported subwoofers in Klipsch’s offering. As its name already discloses, it features a 12-inch driver coupled with a 200W digital amplifier (400W dynamic power). Dimensions: 50 x 42 x 36cm, 15kg
The Klipsch R-115 SW is an active high-performance subwoofer. Its specs are convincing: 15 inch driver, 400W of RMS power (800W peak), 122dB max. acoustic output and a -3dB point at profound 17Hz!
What already sounds impressive on paper turns out to be indeed mind-blowing. This beast will knock your socks off, there’s no other way to put this. Pardon my enthusiasm. Admittedly, I have only listened to sub 1000$ subs so far, but none of them even came close. This subwoofer definitely sets a new reference in terms of performance at its price point. The only thing you need to be concerned about is placement. The cabinet is very large and is everything but unobtrusive in a living room. So this is probably not the right choice for small rooms (< 20m2) or if you’re looking for something that blends in easily.
