Smallest Klipsch Sub

Recommended Posts

Which is the smallest sub Klipsch makes? I have an old KSW-10 that I enjoy but it seems to be getting a little erratic when on auto (fine when just turned on). We have terrible power here and are prone to frequent brown outs, failures and surges - chances are likely this may be the cause. If this is sign of end times I'd like to replace it with an even smaller footprint. I see KEF has announced a new sub which is quite small, however I would like to stick with a Klipsch product.

There is an rw8 possibly not certain now, older Sw8.

The sub that comes with Promedia is a 6... others will know.

The R8SW appears to be the smallest. But it only goes down to 38Hz, so I hardly consider it a true subwoofer. If home theater is your thing, you might want to avoid this one.

The K-100SW is pretty small. I have this in a secondary audio system. A decent sub at an incredible price. Paid $139 at Newegg.

It looks like a better  sub than I have, although approximately the same size. In the end I may be SOL when it comes to a sub that takes less floor space. Chances are this will be the one should/when my current one buys the farm. We live on the 10th floor of a condo tower so earth shattering, wall shaking bass is not what I'm after. Just a little controlled bottom end for TV and the ever diminishing number of movies we watch. I'll be glad when the comic book movie fad is over.

Power/surge bars. We still get a lot of sudden power outs which is hard on everything. This winter has been better than most years though.

What about a tube style sub? SVS PC-2000 Pro? 16.5" diameter with a 12" sub, 550 watts.

Very interesting design but even larger than than I have now.

This could be the ticket.

Saw the xw300d on craigslist is what reminded me. Maybe you can happen into one up there.
