How do I connect my PS12 to the amplifier which does not have an output jack?
1 Answers
Hi Paul: If you are talking about the new PS-12 or even the new PS-10 both of these do not have speaker level inputs so you are restricted to Pre amp or signal level connection. We do have the PS88 (180 Watts, 4 ohm) and both the S-10 and S-12 down firing woofers. These three have Speaker (High ) level inputs. Sorry about that TL/4676

1.. Does the PS12 have any 'chuffing' / Port Noise with medium to high volume with lower note / frequency? I notice with my BIC F12 certain songs WITH constant-consistent low bass there's Chuffing / port noise. I Don't think I'm pushing my BIC F12 over the limit or hard. It's(the sub knob/gain) set passed 12 o'clock around 1 or 2 oclock.. 2.. ALSO, do DUAL PORTS help to minimize port noise? 3.. I've been thinking about getting two of the PS12's to even the bass out in a room. I Notice a dead / low / uneven-spot somewhere near the center of the room. It's been said that dual subs helps with even-bass. and some extra total gain/output when they're combined. -Do you also recommend this?

Hi K: Good question, I have not heard a lot of feedback regarding Port noise from the PS12 or PS10. I did check out the Video Review of the BIC F12 where the reviewer claimed the output from the BIC was plenty at 2 or 3 (maybe 9:00 O'clock)? So maybe you are over driving it. Certainly there is a technology involved in selecting the port size and location for any bass reflex Subwoofer. So I am assuming that double port design had to do more with the specific box design. Regarding your dead or Null spot in your room may have to do with a combination of room layout and speaker location. A second woofer certainly help address this. Have you experimented with different locations for your single woofer? Have you done the Sub woofer crawl where you place the sub woofer at the optimum listening/viewing location? Then go around the room and stand in the potential locations for the Sub woofer. Find the one that sounds the best and then switch the sub woofer to that location and see if that makes a difference. I would try one PS12 and see how that works in your system. You can easily add a second sub woofer later. We do have a wireless kit that works pretty well eliminating the need to run wires between the Receiver and the Sub. Good luck TL/4678

I have an Onkyo 609 running 2 subwoofers indoors....I have your Amp200 and DSM-4 running 2 pairs of speakers and 2 rock speakers outdoors off of Zone 2 of the Onkyo....I'd like to add a subwoofer in an enclosed porch....would you recommend this one and would it connect to the AMP200 or should I do a Y connector out of one of the sub woofer outputs from the Onkyo? Also any better ideas....
1 Answers
Hi Greg, You have two options for outdoor subwoofers; both are passive and will require power. The first is our OMSUB 200. You can drive this with your regular amp because it has a built-in crossover. See the diagram on the product page for wiring information. It basically goes in-line between the speakers. The second option is our RSUB300, which requires a sub amp like the SMP250. We sell it in a combo with both, and you would connect your Y adapter to the sub amp. CL/MA 1969

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.
1 Answers
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: https://www.hometheaterforum.com/t/315777/osd-audio-ps10-high-powered-10-subwoofer-review Note: We will notify Home Theater Forum of the specification change as well.

Installed this subwoofer for my client over the weekend, compare to his Energy model, this unit performs better especially playing heavy notes, not muddy at all, just pure solid bass.
