Velodyne SPL-1200 Ultra
Small, precise and loud. It's the reason the SPL is the SPL and it's the reason the SPL is a subwoofer worth taking a good hard look at. The SPL-1200 is the largest of the series at twelve inches, but it's still compact in a 15.5 by 15 by 18 inch enclosure.
Paradigm Signature Series Sub 25
Like the Sub 2 from Paradigm, the Sub 25 excels in audio quality but also in the looks department. It's hard to make a 20 by 18 by 21 inch box that looks good in a living room, but Paradigm pulled it off – the Sub 25 is elegant as well as powerful.
Definitive Technology SuperCube Trinity
Definitive's SuperCube isn't a sub that you're going to be able to hide. At 18 by 18 by 31, it's best to think of it as an end table that also doubles as a sub. It's sizable to be sure, but that one downside is offset by some huge benefits.
Sunfire's TS-EQ12 – the TS stands for True Subwoofer – comes in at just 13.5 inches cubed. It's not impressive looking, or unique looking, but there's plenty of tech inside the TS-EQ12 that makes it a subwoofer worth looking at.
Wilson Audio Thor's Hammer
The mighty Mjolnir. It's the hammer wielded by Thor. It never breaks, it never misses and it never gets lost. It's not something to take lightly, and Wilson Audio sure did their best to live up to the name with their Thor's Hammer subwoofer.
