looking for a sub for the home theater

I am looking for a decent sub for my home theater. I would like something middle of the road. My system as it sits now it not top of the line but sounds decent. I have satellite style speakers for my surrounds and as you know they lack the lower mid and all the low range stuff. So something that could pick a little bit of that up would be great. The sub will be placed within 5-8' of my regular sitting area in the living room if that helps.

Best something in Texas.... just don't know what it is yet....

I saw that... I do not need, want, or want to spend that much on a sub.

We had a Toby surround sound from Toby Speakers in Fort Worth. You might try there.

Some decent stuff can be bought in the $100-$160 range...Polk PSW10 or the JBL 10" sub (don't recall the model #). In a small room, one of these might suffice.

If I was going to spend ~500 bucks, the Klipsch 12" 650W unit at Best Buy is the ticket.

I have one already in the house and it fucking rocks the house!

Nice sub for the money. Only problem I would have with it, is it only gets down to 24hz. Lots of bass below that point!

Get a better surround speaker setup with McIntosh amp and it will cure the too much bass sound

My surround system consist of a Harmon Kardon AVR 247 (pretty damn good for what it cost) with bose jewel cube surrounds and the adaptiq center channel. The house was pre wired for surround near the ceilings so I wanted small speakers with decent sound and these definitely fit the bill but lack any sort of low mids or bass which is to be expected with a small speaker of course. I would like to stay under $250 for the sub if possible. As far as how low it gets I am not as concerned with that as I am just filling in the rest of the sound range and having it do so with some decent volume. I am not an audiophile but at the same time I was it to sound good to pretty much anyone who comes over. The components that I have purchased so far are not junk and I would like to continue the trend and not wind up with some POS sub.


is this decent...?

Do you have a store or are these all your personal subs? I am interested for sure.

Im straight up and expect the same. i deal with sunfire, audiopro, dennon, onkyo, nad, canton, real, sony, hitachi, pioneer, on and on and on. and the subs are new in the boxes, but i do have one of the bravo's out on display.

Hey that sounds good to me, can you give me an address so I can come check it out. Being able to hear them first makes a big difference. I may want to spend a little more if something really blows me away.

Thanks
