Features & Specifications

On sale while supplies last. Adding the right subwoofer to your home theater can mean the difference between nice sound and HOLY COW! If you're thinking about adding a subwoofer to your surround sound set up, take a look at the OSD S-12; it's one of the most affordable and feature-rich subwoofers on the market. This stand-alone sub includes a 12-inch driver and 150 Watts of power. This sub can tackle medium and larger size home theater rooms (300-500 square feet). For smaller rooms, check out the S-10. In addition to home theaters, the S-12 can be added to your satellite speaker system or two-channel systems for more bass.

Installation Ability: Novice
The S-12 is easy to install and connects to the line level subwoofer output (variable) or LFE output (fixed) on your audio/video receiver. Because it has a built-in amp, there are no additional power requirements to worry about but be mindful that powered subwoofers are heavy.

What's a down-firing sub?
The S-12 uses a down-firing design, which means the speaker is mounted at the bottom of the cabinet firing down into the floor. The bass distribution of this design is typically more equal and precise than front-firing subwoofers, but down-firing subs work best when firing into hard wood floors or hard surfaces. If you have carpeting, you may want to cut a piece of wood and place directly under the subwoofer’s feet. Zoom into the pictures and you'll see that the S-12 has a front firing tuned 3-inch port. The down firing, front tuned port design allows the sub cabinet to be smaller, more efficient and ultimately less expensive.

Other Product Info

1 Question & 1 Answer
from edinburg texas asked:
April 21, 2016
Can i Run this sub woofer and 4 bose speakers in my covered patio with your AMP200 High Current Class A/B 2 Channel Amplifier 200-Watts (2 Ohm stable) Bridged Mono 250-Watt
1 Answer
HI Joey: Great choices, The AMP200 will have no problem powering the 4 BOSE speakers (2 pair?) while also connecting to the sub with a pre-amp output. You will use the Input #2 for your source input and connect the S-12 Powered Sub-woofer to Output #2 which is a direct pass through from the Input#2. Also checkout the PS-12 Front firing sub-woofer for double the power and might be more suitable for a semi outdoor setup like you are talking about. 300 watts versus 150 Watts. Also wire a pair of the BOSE to Speaker A and the second Pair to Speaker B. TL/3828
