BIC Formula F-12 12" Subwoofer 475 Watts
Exactly what type of inputs does this speaker take?
This subwoofer will accept a high (speaker) level or a low (LFE) level input signal. LFE (via RCA type subwoofer cable referenced below) would be the connection method of choice. If your receiver doesn't feature an LFE output, then you can use the speaker level input section, in-line with your mains or satellite speakers.

what would I need to use this subwoofer with a computer?
if the computer has only the blue/green/pink ports on the back, no dedicated sub-out as i know some PC sound cards have that feature.
You'll need to split the signal from the speaker output jack (green) on your computer via a 3.5mm stereo "Y" adapter inserted into this jack. Your normal speakers would plug into one side, and the subwoofer would plug into the other, using another adapter cable. I've linked the required components below for your convenience.

Does the amp on this sub have variable phase?
This subwoofer has a phase switch, 0 or 180 degrees. It is one or the other, not an incrementally adjustable phase sweep.

Amp cutout size? Would a BASH 300s fit?
Could anyone post the amp dimensions? I'd like to know how much modifying would be required to replace it with the 300w BASH plate amp.
This product already contains a 475W (!) plate amplifier (suitable for blowing out windows and other demolition of ears, living spaces, etc.). No need to add another!

Can I buy a grill for it?
Is there a grill accessory that can be bought seperatly to cover up the actual speaker cone? I just think that it would look a little better and that it would also protect the 'speaker' or foam from damage if it hits something.
These subwoofers include grills, they are just not pictured.

Would this subwoffer be too big for a bedroom?
I want to use this with my 70 watt (35wpc) stero in my bedroom. Does this sub simply have too much power that I wouldn't neccesiarly be using for this set up? I do want explosive bass but I don't want to buy a sub that has more power than I need.In a year or two I'd like to move this sub to a home theater system in my basement, now for this application I think this subwoffer would be perfact. I'd be used with a 500 watt Yamaha reciver (100wpc# in a basement.How about a car? I deffinatly don't need tons of power for just driving around but would it be prectical for use in a car #as long as I have a good power supply)?Thanks.
This would probably be overkill for most bedrooms although you can always turn it down. If you plan on moving it to a larger area in the future it is a good choice. This is only intended for home use, not car.
