    A friend of mine is just starting out in HT, and he recently purchased Klipsch Quintets. We're looking for a good sub to finish it out, but I'm having some problems meeting his tight budget. He's looking to spend no more than $250. Any thoughts? I had been looking at the JBL PB12--bestpriceaudiovideo.com had them for $217, but they're out of stock.

    I like the idea of the Dayton 10" except I do not like the look with that bung-hole in the middle of the front. The port should have been placed on the bottom or the back.

    Well put a darn diaper on it then[​IMG] A guy can turn it any direction he chooses but it still will be one very plain looking sub.

    sony sa-wx-700

    250 watts RMS, dual 10", down to 20hz (maybe) and can be had for less than $200

    Another recommendation for the Dayton 10".

    It may not be entirely aesthetically pleasing, but then again it's kind of "hidden" in my setup.

    I don't know where you can get the sony sa-wx-700 for less than $200 but I bought the sony sa-wx-500 12" 150 watts
    for $200 at best buy. You can get the 500 for about $130 online but I didn't feel like waiting.
    I'm no stereophile but I'm very pleased with the 500.

    Have you considered a small Velodyne sub? Perhaps the CHT-8?
