BIC V1220 Subwoofer Review

BIC V1220 subwoofer is an excellent choice for anyone looking for great value for money in a home-theater speaker system. The new BIC subwoofer series features one of the industry’s smallest subwoofer models, yet is still powerful and precise. The company’s mission is to deliver a subwoofer with superior performance that is affordable to all. When you are searching for a new home theater speaker system, it is imperative that you take into account size, power and performance – but this is where BIC surpasses many of its competition.

The BIC V1220 subwoofer is one of the leaders in today’s high-performance speaker market. The V1220 boasts of being the most powerful single-woofer on the market. It combines a powerful 12″ long-throw long-driver and a long-range long-driver amplifier (designed by BASH technology) along with a heavy-duty, precision-tuned long-tube surround. The patented “Ventura” vent eliminates all port noise (usually heard from other subwoofer brands), which in turn ensures optimum performance. And the speaker’s built in equalizer gives you superior sound reproduction regardless of what you are listening to.

If we were to compare BIC V1220 subwoofers to some of the leading brands, such as Alpine, Acoustics, JL audio, Marzocchi and Kenwood, we would find some dissimilarities. However, they each have two very distinct advantages that set them apart. First, BIC subwoofers feature a distinctiveively simple styling that is easy to produce and employ. Second, they employ advanced technologies that help to make them easy to install and maintain.

When installing your BIC V1220 subwoofer, it is important to get a suitable mounting system. Many people prefer to mount their speakers on their vehicles’ OEM mounting points, but this may not always be the best option. The best way to ensure optimum performance and longevity is to mount the speaker at the factory mounting point, which will ensure it is correctly aligned and secure. However, if this is not possible, there are factory mounts available for each subwoofer in the BIC line.

In keeping with the times, BIC now designs its own custom crossovers for each of its models. In designing their own subs, BIC takes into consideration the shape of its speakers as well as certain characteristics present in each model. A unique advantage of this is that BIC can adjust its speakers to better fit into the precise dimensions of the car without compromising the quality of sound. Another advantage is that BIC innovates a new crossover for each model at no extra charge; allowing its pioneers the opportunity to continue developing the features that have made BIC the premier subwoofer brand in the world.

A BIC V1220 subwoofer is sure to please even the most demanding audiophile. BIC takes great pride in its product because many of its early pioneers began working on this product while they were still in college. By using innovative techniques, BIC ensures that its speakers will last for years to come. For owners who want to experience a true home theater sound, owning a BIC V1220 is a must.
