Pros
Owners of this subwoofer describe the sound as being rich and deep, which is quite a feat given its smaller 12" woofer. Speaking of smaller, many appreciate its relatively lightweight design, while others are impressed because they didn't expect as much low-end from a 12" LF driver. Build quality and the extra mobility added by its built-in casters are also well appreciated. It has seen good use in the hands of musicians, band leaders, venue owners and more.

Cons
There are a few who aren't too impressed with its low-end, given its compact design.

Overall
If you want a reasonably portable subwoofer from a very reputable brand, then definitely check out the QSC KS112.
