BIC Venturi V1220 12" Powered Subwoofer 200W
What are the Theil-Small specifications for the driver used in the V1220? I would like to replace it with a non BIC driver of similar specs.
BIC does not provide driver parameters for this subwoofer. Finding a replacement based on cabinet size and tuning will be easier anyway, you can take a look at our woofer selection guide for help with this. Recommended box volumes are also listed on most of the woofer product pages as well.

BIC Venturi V1220 12" 200w. How can the speakers be attached? On my old Dell subwoofer, I was able to attach the speakers via a serial 25 pin connector, and then connect the speakers to my computer/handheld device via a headset jack.
The amplifier in this subwoofer only powers the subwoofer itself. The Dell likely has internal amplifiers for the satellite speakers or the satellites were self powered and received the signal from the 25 pin connector. In order to power satellite speakers with this you will have to have a separate stereo amplifier, like the Dayton DTA-1 or Lepai LP-2020A+.

How can I decide between this and the BiC Formula F12?
There are a few different things to consider when looking at two different subwoofers. The Venturi model has less power and a lesser output driver so this will work well for smaller rooms or lower volume applications. The F-12 is a bigger brother and will handle higher output levels, larger rooms and likely play lower as well.

The description indicates "butyl rubber surround", but it looks like foam in the pic. Which type does this sub have?
This does in fact have a foam surround.

What is phase
There is a switch on the back for 0* phase and 180* phase. What does "phase" mean?
This effectively changes the direction the woofer travels. This is required in some situations in order to blend the main speakers better with the sub. If you have no way of measuring the room response all you can do is try it in both positions and see which sounds best for your application.
