    I was just refering to the on/off switch. I have a thing about leaving things on if I dont have to so I would prefer the auto switch which it does have.

    I even see the polk audio psw505 for only 200 on amazon. that one seems legit....what do you think?

    The BIC F12 was design-assisted by Hsu.

    It doesn't. 8" with a -3dB cutoff of 42Hz? Pretty pathetic.
    Still wouldn't take it over the Bic.

    Thats good enough for me. I ordered a BIC F12 from amazon for only $189. It should be here Saturday. If I don't give some type of feedback by next week it means I was kicked out of my apartment because the sub was that great....lol. Nah, I'll fill you guys in on how it works out. Thanks for all the help everyone!

    Congrats, Jeff!

    Looking forward to hearing your thoughts.

    I bet you'll be pretty happy. I've never owned one...but there have been a lot of people through the gates hear at the HTF that have been very happy with the BIC subs.

    Now...you have to wait!

    The sub arrived a while ago, I just never got around to posting. I did not get kicked out fortunately but after playing Guitar Hero: Metallica for about 4 hours at maybe half of what my system is capable of, I did get a neighbor to come down and ask me to turn it down. I consider that a plus :)

    I love my purchase. Thanks again for all the help!
