ok i got what seems to be a great deal at circuit city. It is the Aiwa TS-W150, it has a 10" woofer @150 watts on sale for $134.99. It got positive reviews from their website so I got it.(4.7/5 out of 20 reviews) First, since i have radioshack linaneum tweeter bookshelves and a jbl s-center, should i set all of those to small and let the sub take care of the rest(the sub. only goes down to 50hz)? Next, where is the best place to place a subwoofer. i have a small 12 by 9 apt. bedroom to work with, and it has a lot of funny slants in indents. The furthest away i can get from my set up is 7 ft. i heard it is best to put it agaisnt a wall for the best results and reflection. Third, i have a sony str-de875 and have it hooked up through the out/in cable, is reverse phase any different from forward b/c when i tried i didn't notice any. I have the lfe at 0, sub. level a +6 and volume at max i have a dreamcast and the sub remains "quiet" during pro-logic mode when i watch tv or play games. It does emit a pretty good test tone, and works well in dd so far. I just want to hear it louf for all dsp's. Or it may have to do with the turnover rate, which i have at 60, but i also can choose from 100 and 150, what is optimal based on my setup. Whoever takes time to answer these you have my thanks.
