    This is in a similar vein to my previous question concerning mixing and matching sub/speaker brands. Thanks everyone who responded to that query.

    But that question got me thinking...is it OK to have 2 different brands of subwoofers? I don't know much about sound waves, cancellation, etc. but would subs of 2 different manufacturers (and probably differing frequency ranges) have a negative effect on the sound quality? Just curious...

    that would depend upon each of the sub's quality in the first place. there's nothing inherently wrong with mixing manufacturers, though, if that's what you're asking.

    Yes, that's what I was asking essentially. I posted under the assumption that the 2 subs from different manufacturers would be of relatively similar quality and extension. Thanks for the answer...

    be aware that there ARE some concerns when running dual subs that ARE unique to that situation, and ARE independent of each subs' quality.
