So I'm about to close the curtains on my home theater project, it's been one full year of excitement and anticipation and I'm finally on the final stage... The only thing that's left right now, is a subwoofer. I'm looking at both aesthetic and quality. They are of equal importance for where I am right now. Relative size and compactness is a factor. I'm definitely looking towards a closed cabinet unit, no cyllinders or upstanding oversized hardware. I am specifically looking at two companies which range significantly in price... MONITOR AUDIO + BOWERS & WILKINS I am considering the Monitor & Audio RSW12. The specs are as follows: * Frequency Response: 21Hz - 120KHz * Power Handling (RMS): 500 Watts (R.M.S) - 1000 Watts (Peak) * Drive Unit Compliment: 1 x 12” C-CAM® Sub-woofer driver featuring triple suspension and 3" long voice coil. * Dimensions: 34 H - 34 W - 37 D I am also looking at BOWERS & WILKINS ASW 750 or 855. I'm not quite sure the difference in specs right now but am looking into it. I also have no idea what I'm looking at as far as pricing but I assume it's in the 3k range. You can read up on specs if you click on the link at the right of the page, here. One major plus that this subs got over the Monitor Audio unit, is size. It's about half the dimensions if the M&A and seems to be just as powerful... but that's where you guys come in! I would like to hear your advice or opinions on both companies, I've never auditioned either sub and am not sure which would fare better with my Speakercraft 8.8 MT and Arcam P7 & AV8 setup. I would like to know in the end, which subwoofer would be delivering the better bang. I don't mind shelling out the extra funds for quality... but if money was not an option, what would YOU chose and why? Like always, your help is EXTREMELY appreciated! Thanks in advance!!!
