    I bought a set of Bose AM10s with the "bass" module ten years ago. (Before I knew about this forum) Now I'm looking to buy a good sub in the $150-$300 range to supplement my Bose system. Yes, I know the bass module only integrates the satellite cubs, there is no sub wire input for the receiver.

    I would like to buy new speakers someday but I'll have to wait since I recently purchase a new receiver,(Pioneer 1014)

    Are there any tight sounding budget subs out there to work in a 400sq ft area? I'm not big on booming bass that only rattles. Will 8" or 10" subs work for the space I have?

    Just got back from Circuit City and was checking out their Polk Audio 10", Velodyn VRP-1000, and Infinity 8" INI PS8s

    Any help will be greatly appreciated. I figured this will be the one place where I could get straight answers and advice!

    I agree with above. In your price range I'd go for the Dayton. A buddy bought one and let me try it. Very nice for the price. I believe parts express is the one that carries them.

    Thanks for the suggestions.

    I'll have to check out the Daytons. I didn't want to spend too much on the subs since I'm looking at replacing my Bose with the Mirage OMNIPOLAR NANOSAT or OMINSAT speakers.

    You could try a Mirage sub then too. They do make some good ones.

    You might also want to consider the Athena Micra satellites, should be a good bit less than Mirage sats---then put the savings into a nice Hsu or SVS sub around $400-500.
