What is the XTZ SUB 12.17?
The XTZ SUB 12.17 is the largest subwoofer in the Swedish company’s new SUB 17 Series and sports a 12-inch driver and two bass reflex tubes at the front. The 12.17 has it roots in XTZ’s previous 99W12.16 but the new model uses a driver derived from their highly successful Cinema Series. Along with the new driver, the SUB 12.17 includes a 500W RMS (800W peak) Class D amplifier inside an MDF cabinet. There are different EQ settings and the option to further tune the performance using supplied plugs for the bass reflex tubes. The SUB 12.17 has both RCA and XLR inputs at the rear, there is a removable front grille and the XTZ comes in a choice of matte or gloss black or matte white. The SUB 12.17 can be picked up for £599/$898 as at the time of writing (August 2016), offering the prospect of big cinema sound without breaking the bank. Can it live up to that promise?
