So the Klipsch R112SW is on sale at $399 and I am looking for a good 12 inch sub for my system, however I have heard that the amp gives out after a few months and I is faulty. So My question is should I take a chance with the R-112SW or go with the R-120SW or the older version R-12SW?

112sw has a max 600W amp while the other two have a 400W amp. A bit new to this stuff so any help would be appreciated.

I have had the R-112SW for little more than a year now and works fine.

I just added another one since its on sale right now. Hoping they last long.

I really treat them well and stay within limits :)

Sometimes I do touch the amp panel and check the temperature, I don't find them hot at all and nothing that should melt the glue inside (Black goo of death)

I had raised a support request with Klipsch and got a reply yesterday.

They stated all is well with the current batches of R-112SW. They did see widespread issue with the initial batches and they took corrective measure and fixed the successive batches.
