I write reviews for Home Theater Shack and one of the subwoofers I evaluated recently was the NXG NX-BAS-500. This one turned out to be a pleasant surprise, especially considering the cost. I didn't want to recreate the entire review here - because it's rather long - but if you're interested in reading it copy and paste the following link into your browser:

First off I wanted to give a big thumbs up too AVS house for their great customer service!. I want to compare this sub-woofer too 3 others I tried: BIC F12, Energy 10.3 and the Klipsch RW-12d. I used my receiver to control the crossover and set my speakers(polk rti8, csi5) at 70 hz so everything lower was going to the subwoofer. When I first started using the subwoofer I set the volume too full, the sub was clear but it didnt quite have the same umph as the Klipsch, or Energy 10.3. Second I couldn't feel the low low vibration I could with the Klipsch. I wasn't to happy with it, I actually contacted AVS house about a return, they promptly responded with a return authorization. But during this time the sub started to break in, I also moved the sub too a different position(Corner), it seemed to react differently than the Klipsch, F12 or Energy. Now I can feel the subwoofer, but the volume was way to high, currently I have my level on the receiver set to -1 and the volume on the sub set to half, its more than adequate umph for my 2000 cubic feet room(scares the dog).

NX-BAS-500 vs BIC F12: I've had the BIC F12 for about 3 months, it was a mistake too buy I was being too cheap. The F12 can rattle the floor and get loud, but not as loud or as low as the BAS 500. The F12 is ok in Movies, but absolutely horrible in Music the Bas-500 integrates in music perfectly. Additionally the NXG is a smaller sub.

NX-BAS-500 vs Energy 10.3: The energy is a friends sub, I only used it to test for a direct comparison, its a good sub, but when the Energy is cranked up to a comparable volume as the BAS-500 it sounds very distorted and muffled.

NX-BAS-500 vs Klipsch RW12d: I bought the RW12d on a sale, the same time as the NX-BAS-500, the loser would get returned.

I recently ordered this subwoofer from amazon. I had been looking for a powerful subwoofer for a good price that can reproduce the ultra-deep bass that the vast majority of in-home subwoofers fail at. I was slightly skeptical that less than $300 could buy a sub like that but the stated frequency response down to 18 hertz and the clearly high excursion speaker surrounds made me feel like this was a relatively safe bet. I've been disappointed by many more expensive subwoofers, but this is a real deal low-bass sub. This NXG gets deeper than even most 12" automobile subwoofers that I've heard. This turned out to be an exceptional sub that can handle high volume and the upper range to very low notes without distortion or lack of accuracy. I recommend you forget about most of the other less-than-$1000-subs out there and consider this one, it will not disappoint.

I ordered this sub after reading James Wilson's review thatt he links to in his review here and after getting feedback from other owners of this sub on [...]

My sub is in a 20'x15' room that opens up into another room just as big. I didn't feel that the sub was too small for a room this size. The quality of the sound it produces is exceptional. I could feel the effects of this sub on the floor above even if I wasn't directly above the room with the sub. There is no distortion in the sound and it is very clear regardless of the source being cable TV, DVD's Blu-rays, PS3, Wii or Youtube videos.

When I was researching subs I was told to get the Klipsch Reference RW-12d 12" Powered Subwoofer which is a little more expensive than this but it can't be found anywhere. I don't regret giving a chance to this brand I never heard of before. I highly recommend it to anyone. This is worth every penny.

I ordered this subwoofer, not expecting to be impressed. Boy, was I ever wrong.
I am using this with an audio system that occasionally does double duty as a home theater system. I use 1976 Klipsch LaScala speakers for my mains, a Belle Klipsch as a center channel, and 1976 Klipsch Heresy speakers for my surrounds. In case you are unfamiliar with these speakers, they represent an investment of about $11,000. The electronics used for testing the subwoofer is a Denon AVR receiver. Cabling is The DCVSC102 Hybrid speaker cables are constructed of four 13AWG conductors. Each conductor is made from 277 strands of wire, which make these cables very flexible. Each of the four conductors is formed from three bundles of OFHC, and three bundles of silver plated OFHC. The four conductors are joined to make 2 conductors, which are rated at 10AWG. This cable is laid out in a Star Quad configuration, which is a superior method to attenuate EMI (electromagnetic interference). This is the cable used for all the speakers, including the sub.

I gave the subwoofer a 50 hour break-in, and then sat down to do some serious listening. As a home theater sub, it does a fine job. "Black Hawk Down" and "Top Gun" provide some amazing passages, and the sub doesn't disappoint. I expected the subwoofer to be overwhelmed, but it handled these Blu Rays with grace.

Switching to music, I first demoed the Telarc DDD cd of the 1812 Overture. This recording incorporates live cannon fire, with microphones placed 10' in front of the cannons. I kicked the volume up to live concert level, and this subwoofer did not distort. THe cannon fire was like a punch to the chest. I could hear it, feel it, and almost taste it.
I then moved on to the Telarc DDD cd called "Time Warp.
