Cerwin Vega XLS-12S
Released October, 2009
The Pros:Easy to walk through the YPOA setup, only takes a few minutes. Delivers tight, clean bass that doesn't miss any details. Hard hitting when you need it, thumps out strong beats.
The Cons:Fairly large footprint, may not be easy to place properly in a smaller room. Needs a lot of power to drive it, won't just work with any receiver.
