Rated 4 out of 5 by from Easy to set up with great sound.I needed to replace an older, smaller subwoofer for my surround sound system. This one had good reviews so I bought it and am happy that I did. It came well protected and was easy to set up. It is capable of producing much more volume than I need but, set at around 3.5, it gives great bass that sounds like it is coming from the speakers. A wonderful addition to my TV viewing.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from This Sub Licks AzzJust got it today, hooked it up, did a little tuning on the sub & receiver and all I can say is WOW !!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! This has to be the best bang for your buck, highly impressed with build and output. Have a 7.2 system (2-12" Subs, this BIC and a Velodyne) and you'd swear you were at the Cinema.

BIC Formula F-12 12" Subwoofer 475 Watts

Where can I buy the amplifier for the BIC F-12 subwoofer. Mine is blown and I haven't been able to get it to work by changing the fuse so I'm considering replacing the amp. Your help is much appreciated.

Asked by: dib2020
A stock amplifier for this will only be available from BIC directly. We may have amps that will work as replacements but they would require modifications to the enclosure in order to fit.

I'm from little town near to Valencia, Spain. Here we can't buy BIC's products. Do you have international shipping to Valencia or any place closer?  If not, what do i have to do?

Is the BIC America F12 and the BIC Formula F12 the same speaker just a different twist on the names? If not, whats the difference?  Also, what kind of cord do I use from my subwoofer outlet on my Sony receiver to the subwoofer?

Asked by:
These are both the same subs, they just go by different names depending on the dealer. You will need a standard RCA subwoofer cable to connect this to a receiver.

I have a Sherwood R-972 with one pre-out subwoofer connection. Is the cable from that the one to insert in the LFE on this BIC?

Does this sub have outputs for satellite speakers or is it stand alone

Asked by: vaniety
The amplifier in this subwoofer only powers the sub. It has speaker level inputs and outputs but this is simply a pass-through if you do not have a subwoofer output on your amplifier.

hey i have a big formula f-12 but it keeps burning my fuse i want to get a new amp on it box and sub still good just need the amp where can i find it

Asked by: jerry12345
If you want a factory replacement amplifier you will have to contact BIC for a replacement. We offer many plate amplifiers but they might require cabinet modifications in order to fit properly. Please contact our tech support for more help with this question, tech@parts-express.com or 800-338-0531 x1.
