Klipsch's R-100SW powered subwoofer features a 10" spun-copper woofer that's powered by a 150-watt RMS amplifier. It might be the smallest sub in the company's 2018 Reference lineup, but it still delivers punchy bass down to 32 Hz — deep enough to add serious punch to movie soundtracks and TV show special effects.

Great value for a good subwoofer
Sounds awesome, makes a big difference.
Pros: Great plus
Cons: None at the moment.
Bought for my bonus room set up to complete my Klipsch package of speakers (7.1 system). Got a great price on this bass which I have been looking at for some time.
Pros: Great sound from a small package, not to over powering. Good looking package also.
Cons: No cons that I have come across.
Better than expected!...
Works exactly as specified and looks great too.
First thing I noticed about this sub was its light weight. I was a little concerned that there would be cabinet resonance. When I connected it to my bedroom system, I set all the speakers to "small" and the crossovers to 80hz. Then turned off the built in low pass system because I was using the bass management in my Marantz pre/pro. Lastly, I set the volume control to 12 o'clock and put on some music. This sub is so efficient that it about blew me out of the room. I would suggest setting the volume ALL the way down and then gradually turn it up while playing a bass heavy track. Try different locations to eliminate any booming and you'll find that with some proper adjustment, this is a fine sub for the price. This works nicely in my bedroom.
Pros: Good for a budget system. Experiment with placement for best result.
Cons: Light weight cabinet VERY efficient, be careful first time you play it.
Very impressed, added the right level of punch to a 9.1 Atmos setup
We had an infinity sub that worked sometimes and even when working, did not compare to this sub. We are happy with it.
A great addition to our simple stereo system, more powerful than I really need. Makes my Edgar Meyer CD's sound awesome.
Pros: not to expensive, sounds great.
Cons: would have preferred a more neutral color than black
Makes the whole house shake. If you want a killer bass, this sub-woofer will not disappoint.
Lots of bass with control. It's not just a lot of noise. This was a huge upgrade from my cheap home theater in a box from 5 years ago.

10" Woofer: The Klipsch Reference series R-100SW powered sub is fitted with a powerful 10" copper-spun IMG (injected molded graphite) front-firing woofer for deep bass. The copper-spun IMG woofer is exceptionally light while being extremely rigid, providing remarkable low frequency response with minimal cone breakup and distortion. The front-firing woofer gives you greater placement flexibility than a down-firing woofer.
150 Watt Class D Amp: The Klipsch R-100SW powered sub employs an all-digital 150 watt RMS (300 watt Peak) amplifier for high efficiency and dynamic bass performance. The built-in, all-digital amplifier of the R-100SW subwoofer delivers ample power with high efficiency and true-to-source accuracy reproduction - thus providing maximum output, detail, and power that fills your home.
Rear Firing Port: The R-100SW's enclosure uses a bass reflex design with a rear-firing port for greater efficiency and bigger bass.
MDF Cabinet: The R-100SW is housed in a durable MDF cabinet and finished with a scratch resistant, textured wood-grain vinyl. Its reinforced MDF construction reduces cabinet vibration for less audible coloration and improved sonic accuracy - giving you the ultimate listening experience that's built to last. There are heavy-duty rubber feet on the bottom of the cabinet to help isolate the subwoofer from your floor. The included low-profile front grille adds a refined look and is acoustically transparent.
Controls: The level control, low pass crossover, and phase control allow you to blend the powered subwoofer's low-frequency tones with your system's other speakers, as well as establish the ideal level of bass.
LFE/RCA Inputs: The Klipsch R-100SW powered subwoofer is equipped with a pair of line-level RCA-type inputs to connect the sub to your AV receiver or integrated amplifier.
LED Indicator: The front-mounted LED power indicator lets you know when the sub is powered on or off. The LED will light green when the powered subwoofer is on and receiving a signal. If the LED is dark and not lit, the powered sub is off.
Auto Power On/Off: The powered subwoofer will automatically turn On when it senses an audio signal. It will automatically go into "Standby mode" after 15-20 minutes with no audio signal. You can also choose to turn the powered sub On or Off manually from the rear-switch on the back.
Placement: Klipsch powered subwoofers are designed to reproduce deep bass and deliver the impact that makes your movies and music come alive. For optimum performance, place your subwoofer in a corner of the room on the same wall as your front channel speakers. Please note that room placement can have a dramatic effect on the performance of your powered subwoofer. Corner placement, as suggested above, will increase the amount of bass output, while placing the subwoofer along the middle of a wall, or out in the room will decrease the amount of bass output.
