    i know this is a general question, but i still feel it is worth asking since it will greatly affect my ht setup. i was planning on buying the dls powered sub that was $99, but they seem to have discontinued it. If you could post your suggestions and where to buy the suggested sub i would appreciate it ($220 or less)

    JBL PB10 199.99 shipped OneCall. Won't blow you away, but a nice sub for the price.

    Check out ebay for an Infinity IL100s. $220 is pretty low for a sub so your best bet is to get a refurb which originally cost double or triple the price and still get the full manufacturers warranty.

    Spend $100 more and build yourslef a DIY Shiva. It will be a lot better than anything else in the price range.

    i was considering going that route, i have built plenty of mdf boxes, but i think it might be going overboard, i don't too much bass, i will be living in an apt for the next 3 years. although the dls 250w amp $119 and a dls titanic sub $139-150 would be very tempting.

    btw, i read that those jbl powered subs are known for their amps blowing after about a year. what about the sony wm40, i heard if you add some polyfill in the box and put spikes on it it sounds great.
