I have a pair of B & W book shelf speakers that are connected to a Sony STR-DH130 receiver. I would like to add a budget subwoofer for low end bass. My budget is $350. I will be primarily using the sub for movies and video games. I have checked many sites and have come up with a few choices but not sure what to get and how they would sound. 1. Outlaw M8 - $249 + shipping 2. Definitive Pro sub 800 - $325 3. Martin Logan Dynamo 300 - $150 4. Polk PSW10 - $90 Can you please help me decide. Thanks

http://www.newegg.co...0078&Tpk=rw-12d Possibly the best sub you can get for $300. The normal price is 350 so act fast.

Lava - https://www.lavasubs..._subwoofer.html BIC - http://www.amazon.co...r/dp/B0015A8Y5M Are 2 other options. The $350 price point is the worst price point for a good sub. The market opens up around $200 and $500.

That NewEgg Klipsch is a worthy contender. There isn't much else unless you stumble on a used deal via CL or Ebay.

I have heard good things about BIC subs. And that Klipsch is nice. I have heard it and it will shake a decent sized room.

Thank you guys for the good suggestions. I did not realize that it was so hard selecting a sub.

I really like my BIC F-12, but there may be something better for $350.
