"Never once did I hear the SUB3X12 make an untoward noise, no port chuffing, no complaints from the drivers, no audible distortion, no abnormal sounds."    "As capable as the SUB3X12 proved to be the speakers actually stole the show, and boy did they ever play their part beautifully."    "This is a different level of detail here folks."    "So revealing - and flat out pleasant sounding - was this system that I spent far more time enjoying music than I did anything else. It's a rare treat for me to hear sound reproduced at this level..."    "The XTZ Cinema Series is a sonic tour de force, a complete system that encourages you to dig deep into your movie and music collection to unearth hidden gems long since forgotten. Why? Because now you will want to experience everything in your library all over again."    "The SUB3X12 is a beast and can certainly hold its own, but for me the real stars of this show were the speakers."    "I honestly can't think of a single legitimate complaint about the M6 mains or S5 surrounds, and with how picky I am that's saying quite a lot."    "If you want a system that will simultaneously get your friends tongues wagging and their jaws dropping then XTZ Sound has something you need to hear…"

May 12 - 2015

"Price range - Reference - Award"    "First-class, ultra-solid and loud playing active subwoofer for a very reasonable price"    “The performance from most competitors seems like a gentle breeze in comparison at best.”    “The sheer force offered by the Swede is really impressive and shakes all the way down to the very foundation of listening room. Everything that gets thrown at the SUB 3X12 is handled with ease without breaking a sweat. This is because each chassis has its own power amplifier, so there is no performance degradation, even under heavy loads.”

Great subs, i'm sure you won't be disappointed!

I'm running them with a pair of PMC BB5is with a pair of Bryston 14BSST2s, crossovers in the pre amp so passing through the 3 x12s back into the bass side of the Brystons.

After setup I did a final tweek with Lyngdorf RoomPerfect and the results are great.

I'm in a reasonably large room at 7m x 10m and lots of glass which can be a bit bass lossy, also a suspended floor which can reverb a bit but everything comes together well.

I now get concert levels of body rocking bass and it sounds tight and tuneful, left the bungs in.

As well as dance I have a penchant for classical organ and these subs really get us back to performance sound quality with Messiaen and similar where the long pipes are played.

Also good on the few BluRays we've run on that system through a projector; it's the one to use if we know the soundtrack is good. Inception was shockingly good and the first gunshot in Bruges woke up the neighbourhood well.

All in all a good pair of powerful subs which I've never needed to strain to achieve playback as good as or better than the studio intended.

With the purchase of (two) XTZ Sub 3x12's, I finally attained the bass/sub-bass that I was seeking since starting this hobby. The sound was low, visceral, articulate and accurate. The sound is never muddy or fatiguing, it's just there with the proper force and tonality that you can feel as well as hear. I've never enjoyed listening to music and movies as much as I do now. As an added bonus, customer service is exemplary. I highly recommend this product.

The 3X12 is just wow. Whenever I really push the volume to the max, I fear that my house is beeing damaged by this powerfull subwoofer. But it is not only the max SPL that is astonishing, it is also how smooth the sub is playing. It never seems to reach any limit and always stays precise. I even use it for music playback since it is a perfect complement for my floorstanding speakers. Great job guys!

I purchased the 3X12 to reproduce subsonic sounds with maximum SPL- the 3X12 perfectly fulfills this task. It accomplishes challenging SPL orgies in my home theater and in comparison to the SVS PB 13 Ultra which I had before, it also plays very precise. The 3 X12 is a top model in home cinema for low bass lovers! It lets pant legs flapping and rocking the bed - and sometimes even without you hear it ;)

I recommend some space in the home cinema where the 3X12 is used in. Otherwise I do not see any alternative in that price range!
