It is a good sub and very good box. Good Finish and good sound. It is quite accurate and a yes, bit louder than the sealed box. As all Bass Reflex Boxes are.

And for those who are wondering, he is talking of this sub box. Not the usual CS1204B.




Cheers

I've listened to one of those in Mansidea's Scorpio. It was being fed by a 75.4.

Very good sub. Sounded really good. Exceptional build & finish.

The GTO1200B was an earlier bass reflex box(from 2004) using the GT4-12 woofer. A pretty good product.
The GTO1204BR uses the GTO1264 subwoofer and is a better designed box.

The GT4-12 was one of JBL's most successful single voice coil subwoofers.
Here is how it looked.


You may notice I am referring to it in the past tense, as it has now been discontinued. The GT4 series will no longer be sold as an individual woofer driver.
It will however still be produced and used in the CS series sealed box and Tube.

The GT4-12 will now be replaced with the GT5-12, first in the brand new series of GT5 products.
Here is the woofer.


The GTO1264 was a limited edition single coil woofer and is no longer available. However the GTO1204BR uses the GTO1204 woofer which is quite similar.

I hope I haven't confused you further lol
