The Klipsch Subwoofers


SW 12 Series II and SW 15 Series II

Teeth chattering bass for the ultimate listening experience! Unsurpassed in the ability to accurately reproduce dynamic deep bass, Klipsch powered subwoofers transform passive listening into an intense audio home theater experience.

Modern music recordings and movie soundtracks put great demands on speakers, especially for low frequency reproduction, Klipsch SW 12 Series II and SW 15 Series II powered subwoofers feature state-of-the-art technology designed to deliver outstanding performance and reliability. High current amplifier designs featuring 8 output transistors in a discreet output stage result in accurate bass reproduction you actually feel, whether you’re listening to a digitally mastered CD or laser disc!

Built in high pass filters and adjustable low pass filters assure a seamless match between powered subwoofers and the full range speakers in virtually any audio and home theater system. The entire listening experience is accurate and believable. Full differential high level inputs increase the reliability of the amplifier and life span of the woofer. High level inputs and outputs suppress unwanted noise, so from the plunk of a bass guitar string to the roar of a jet engine, Klipsch powered subwoofers elevate the level of realism and involvement for the ultimate listening or viewing adventure.

Available in 6 beautiful and durable lacquer finishes, the SW 12 Series II and SW 15 Series II complement the look and quality of fine furniture from traditional to contemporary design.

SW 12 Series II


1994 Winner Hi-Fi Grand Prix Award Special Recognition

“...the SW 12 showed that it could kick up a stir when it had to... And this sub sounded awesome: The telling gate crash at the beginning of Terminator 2 thundered convincingly, and all of my movie-spectacular discs enveloped the room with massively throbbing bass. At the same time, acoustic bass was delivered cleanly, with lots of subtlety and plenty of detail. An excellent all-around showing”. - Sound & Image, Summer 1994
