...except it doesn't perform like a little brother. I'm going to keep this short (short for me, anyway). To find a more detailed review of BIC subwoofers, see my long-winded review on the 12-inch V-1220.

My normal disclaimer: If you can, listen to any speaker system you are interested in before buying (and don't rely on other people's opinion, and that certainly includes mine).

Initially, I was going to purchase the 100 watt, 8-inch V80. But once I saw the price of the 10-inch V-1020, I couldn't pass it up. I use the V-1220 in the family room, while this V-1020 model is placed in the computer room (smaller area and much smaller volume). And like all BIC speaker systems, it requires a break in period (around 40 to 60 hours), so don't judge it until it has been fully broken in (I've had this sub for about a month now).

How does the V-1020 compare to its bigger brother? I find only minor differences between the two (other than the 12-inch model will obviously go deeper). Both have BASH-designed amplifiers -- this one rated at 160 watts RMS vs 200 watts RMS for the V-1220, and each have the exact same control panel, external finish, Venturi vent, and coned feet. The specs state that this model goes down to 26 Hz (compared to 23 Hz for the V-1220). There is an old saying, "Location, location, location", and this applies to subwoofers as well as to real estate. Once you've broken this puppy in and have found the right crossover for your main speakers, try several locations to see how it performs in your environment. Understand that there will be dead zones (it's the nature of any subwoofer), and moving your sub around to mitigate these dead zones is standard procedure.

This unit replaced a KLH 10" E10 subwoofer, and MAN, what a difference!

The V1020's workmanship seems great; a nice polished ash-grey woodgrain finish, beveled edges, perfect fit & finish -- it feels very solid. I almost went for the V1220, but it was a little too large for the intended spot in my bedroom. This unit actually has a slightly smaller footprint than the KLH; it fits perfectly next to my system.

The V1020's auto-on works much better than the KLH's, too - it rarely drops the receiver's sub signal, even at lower volumes. I like the fact that the BIC has a selectable input - you can choose whether or not to use the internal crossover.

I really like the sound! The KLH was very boomy and flabby-sounding, but this unit's bass is tight and focused - very precise - and it goes plenty low for me (the specs say it goes down to 26Hz).

If BIC's other speakers are as well-made and great-sounding as this sub, I might just have to replace the rest of my speakers!

I tried thwo different sub woofer before settling for this one. I have the Polk Audio rm10 5 speaker set, for my room size is rather small(18'x12') and its a townhome so I have to keep things low, you know what I mean. The first one I tried after reading a barrage of good reviews in Amazon is Polk PSW 10, which to be very honest with you should not be called a sub woofer, because it all it does is some rumble sound and no base, next I tried the HSU STF-1, which I must say a fantastic product, had I have a bigger room and more powerful speaker set I would have settled for it, but my speakers were too small for it, so I finally ordered the Bic 1020, after researching that it has almost similar spec as with the STF-1, and boy what a choice, it is a perfect match for my system. The base is perfect and also comes with a frequency adjustment knob which helps you to fine tune the base output from your system. In case you are wondering I use a Yamaha 6130 Receiver. I would recommend this sub woofers to everyone, you can't beat this performance to the price they offer it.

Just hooked up a new Onkyo 507 and wanted to replace my Yamaha YST-216 sub. I'm actually a big Yammy fan but wanted one with a dedicated LFE input and adjustable crossover. Was looking at Polk and Energy - from the numerous reviews, it seemed that the Polk was average and that the Energy was a better sub, but the price was also much higher. I have had a pair of BIC Venturi bookshelf speakers for over ten years so I thought I'd give their sub line a look and am very happy that I did. The box itself is a very solid and nicely constructed enclosure with a handsome silvery black finish. The hardware is solid and the knobs have a nice feel to them. The cone is sturdy as well - the only improvement I could suggest is upgrading the feet to something other than plastic but that is superficial and will not have any effect on the sound. Speaking of the sound, it is excellent! After using the mic to run the calibration on the Onkyo, the correct crossover was determined and a smooth bass that blends seamlessly with the music was quickly dialed in. Don't get me wrong, you can turn it up for ridiculous boom if you prefer as well. I noticed immediately that the bass lines on a Dave Matthews DVD were immediately better defined and more distinctive than they had been with the Yamaha. And with a peak of 360W, the BIC should be able to handle whatever you throw at it - explosions in "Iron Man" had nice, loud impact.

BIC may not be a highly marketed, over-hyped or commercially sexy brand, but if you want a very solid, strong yet smooth sub with features that are comparable with an Energy/Klipsch/Polk in the $350-$500 range, pick this up (or the 12-inch even) for under $200 and use the leftover cash for another upgrade to your system. Incredible value, you won't be disappointed.
