B&C 12PS100 12" Woofer
B&C 12PS100 12" Woofer is rated 4.5 out of 5 by 2.
Rated 5 out of 5 by from Sub or 2-way Ready!I purchased this driver thinking that is was probably intended for Sub use. I assumed I'd be gambling by trying to use it in a 2-way system. I'm pleased to say it is doing just fine. I mated it to a Morel CAT378 with a 24db / octave cross-over at 1,320 Hz in the (245-325) cabinet kit (1.23 cubic feet ported and tuned to approximately 56.9Hz.) I find this setup to sound quite good. The only RTA measurements I've taken to date show that this driver (like the manufacturer's graph shows) is really, really, well behaved from 200 - 1,000 Hz. where the LR crossover forces a dip in my systems response. This driver is ready to deliver clean tight bass. Though I have not optimized my speaker cabinet design for deep sub frequencies, this driver (with a little EQ help in the bottom end) delivers solid, tight bass. The bass is so good sounding that I don't think I will be using a sub with my 2-way design. At the same time I know that if I throw this driver into a lower tuned cabinet, its bass is really going to come alive. This driver sounds great! It sounds really smooth, really natural, strong and tight.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Great driver!So I have had this sub inuse for awhile now in a PA. It has been beat hard.All it has done is given me pure clean bass.The only reason it doesn't get a perfect 5 is the cost. I am going to test the Kappa Pro-12Ain its place as they model the same. Except overall SPL is a bit different due to power handling level differences. So check that item to see if I have got it done and my thoughts.
