Inkognito 12 Review (5 out of 5 stars in Stereopluss August 2020)

"(..)The subwoofer from Sigberg Audio plays very deep, but the 20-25hz area isn't what impresses me the most. It also plays very clean, balanced and natural in the mid-bass area, and reveals no vibrations or resonances.(..)"

"(..)Whether I cross over at 80-90hz or lets the subwoofer just fill in below KEF R5, so from around 40hz, the bass is impressive. The first I experience even with the subwoofer at a low level, is an enormously expansive soundstage. I don't hear the subwoofer, I just hear added weight and size to all instruments and even voices. This happens not only with the instruments in the bass domain, but even with those found in the midbass area.(..)"

"(..)The tempo is good and the rhytmic precision is impeccable. There's no feeling of the bass slowing the pace, or reducing the transient response of the speakers. Electronica like Trentemøller reveals a quick and nimble bass and excellent dynamics. At the same time, the soundstage is clean, impressively tidy and rich with information from bubly and snarling synths and samplers. Inkognito 12 is impressively seamless, and the lack of coloration, distortion and phase issues at the crossover makes it easy to integrate(..)"

"(..)It delivers high quality bass to movies as well, but there are subwoofers out there who delivers more volume below 20 hz for the most intense action movies. If you are looking for a combination of deep bass, clarity, control and an excellent ability to collaborate with your main and center speakers, you should definitely test this subwoofer in your dedicated home theater as well — if you have a surround processor of high quality.

Conclusion
Set up properly and combined with a pair of high-end compact speakers, the result will be amazing and very fun, with a sound quality surpassing loudspeakers with a far higher price than the total price of your setup. Sigberg Audio Inkognito 12 delivers deep, powerful and impressively controlled bass - and it has never been easier to integrate a subwoofer with your speakers.
