- The Klipsch RW-12d offers excellent performance with movies and games, providing a tremendous amount of weight, punch, and extension to the experience.
- The RW-12d needed more speed, accuracy, and transparency on music material, occasionally falling behind the material and sounding a bit plodding and boomy.
- The RW-12d lacks a high-pass crossover output, which could limit bass control options for some users.
- The RW-12d only comes in Black.
The RW-12d does a lot of things very well, and some superbly. In the Klipsch tradition, it rocks the house with movies and games, and adds oodles of enjoyment to the experience. With music, it sounds more than respectable, and very good on occasion, with a wide variety of material. It adds punch and weight when required, and rarely sticks out negatively. When it comes up a bit short, it never detracts from the experience. When combined with its superb user interface, good looks, and solid build, the RW-12d offers an excellent value across the board and should be seriously considered for an audition.
