Executive Overview

I'm here to make another RBH Sound speaker look small... It's actually a pretty massive subwoofer that ups the ante on the company's prior Reference 1010 model. The new 1212 Series of subs is available in four different models: a passive standard model, an active stand model, and both passive and active reference models. Pricing ranges from $3000 for the passive standard model to $5000 for the active Signature Reference (SX-1212/R) model. This one here is indeed the Signature SX-1212/R which has two reference grade 12" aluminum drivers on the front and features a down-firing 6" flared port.

The amplifier is a 3000 watt beast that can actually put out up to 4000 watts under a 2-ohm load. It's available in two finishes, Black or Sandalwood - or you can choose from up to 30 different custom finishes for an additional premium.
