The BIC America F12 Subwoofer can offer a lot when it comes to features and benefits. One of the subwoofer’s banner head features is the incorporation of a patented BIC “Venturi” vent. Unlike other subwoofer brands that often create sound or noise, this BIC subwoofer has none because the Venturi vent works to eliminate the noise or sound coming from the port every time a demanding or heavy video or music is being played.
Controlling the output and the performance of the BIC subwoofer has also been made easy with the appliance’s adjustable volume control as well as a crossover. Because the BIC subwoofer is easy to control, using it is likewise convenient and hassle-free. Aside from the easy control, this subwoofer is also easy and hassle-free to play. There is no need for many buttons to press or several cables to attach before the BIC subwoofer can be used.
Another feature that gives the BIC subwoofer an edge over the other subwoofer brands is its automatic signal sensing. With this sound appliance, there is no need to manually look for signals because the subwoofer can do it on its own. Another quality of the BIC subwoofer is its durability. A durable subwoofer means long service life and more savings for being spared from replacement costs.
Most notable about this audio appliance is the quality of its output supported by its dynamic range and clarity – from the softest sound to the loudest voice, this subwoofer can handle it all very well. Yet another advantage of having a BIC subwoofer is the five (5) years of labor and parts warranty. With such backup, customers will be assured that there is an outlet to hold on to when the parts of the subwoofer and the subwoofer itself exhibit problems due to manufacturer defects that cannot be seen at a first glance. With this guarantee, full customer satisfaction can be easily achieved.
The BIC America F12 Subwoofer also has some negative points that should be noted by interested purchasers of the product. One recurring negative feedback about this subwoofer is not on the product itself but on the customer service or the technical support of the subwoofer’s manufacture. The subwoofer works well enough but when a problem arises about its parts or the unit itself, getting hold of tech support or customer service can be a little difficult.
The durability of the BIC subwoofer is also put into question because there are reports saying that the subwoofer sounded nice until it stopped working after just a few months of use. Also, the adjustable volume and frequency control of the BIC subwoofer is placed at the back of the appliance and the location can be a little bit difficult to reach when the subwoofer is placed against a wall or encased in a divider with its back hard to reach.
The shipping of the BIC subwoofer has also some issues – the product’s plastic knobs are often detached because the subwoofer is not packed properly for shipping. Finally, there are also feedbacks that, contrary to what is originally advertise, this subwoofer is not able to perform at 475 W of power.
The BIC America F12 Subwoofer is one of those products that offer great value for its very affordable purchase price. This sound appliance is noted well for its performance and quality output – both aspects that a good subwoofer should have.
The BIC subwoofer, however, has some disadvantages to be weary of but, from the overall feedbacks of the product’s verified purchasers, it would seem that the negative points fall more in the exceptional cases rather than the general condition of the subwoofer. As an overall assessment of the product, all things considered, this one is still a smart purchase to make.
