An OSD Audio subwoofer will dramatically enhance your movie experience by providing the earth-churning, low frequency effects that transport you out of reality and into a scene. The PS12 powered subwoofer includes speaker level controls, and the 12” woofer easily handles large rooms or home theaters. This powered sub performs exceptionally well with bass-heavy notes and will give you clean, solid low frequency effects.
What Are the Benefits of A Front-Firing Subwoofer?
The PS12 and the PS10 are front-firing subwoofers. Both are the perfect complement to our down firing series subwoofers so we can give customers a sub solution for any home theater application. Front-firing subs tend to cost a little more because they provide a lower frequency range (25 Hz to 180 Hz) than down-firing subs (50 Hz to 250 Hz). Of course, this will demand more output power while utilizing upgraded components including a longer throw 10 or 12 inch woofer. OSD Audio also designed the cabinet to have both a front-firing woofer and dual front firing ports, which allow the woofer to be built into a custom cabinet. The design also allows placement either close to a wall or even tucked back into a corner.

The PS12 subwoofer includes a grill. It is a plain black cover that hides the driver.

Can you tell me what this subwoofer weighs? It's not listed. Also, the dimensions don't specific what they are. Is it HxWxD, WxDxH, HxDxW, something else? Lastly, what's the true frequency response? It says 5Hz-180Hz, but it can't possibly get down to 5Hz.

Weight for both the PS-10 and PS-12 appear in the download Tab-Owners Manual:
Net Weight (out of the shipping box): 36.88 lbs
Gross Weight (with all the packing material): 44.09 lbs.
The manual does not give you dimensions for the PS-12 but here they are:
PS-12: 15" L x 16 7/8" D x 15" H (plus 2"or 17"H with the feet)
Regarding the both the PS-10 and PS-12 Frequency Response of 5Hz to 180Hz The true specification should be 25Hz to 180Hz.. We are making the corrections to our owners manual, product information and our web site.
Both the PS-10 and PS-12 Subs were created for Home Theater applications where they are connected to the LFE output of the AV receiver. Both subs have no problem working with whatever you can dial up for low frequency effects. One of the advantages of the Front firing Speaker and Port design is that it allows you to build it into a custom media center cabinet. This along with the Auto-on sensing allows you to set it and forget it. Plus under downloads next to the Owners Manual, check out our Product information PDF for our Down firing Subwoofer versus Front firing Subwoofer comparison. Also see link below for Review from Home Theater forum:
Note: We will notify Home Theater Forum of the specification change as well.
