    Hi guys,

    Thanks to the help of this great message board, I was able to easily complete my home theater setup which consisted of a nice Sanyo projector, a great pioneer reciever, and a Da-Lite 106 inch screen.

    I love it a lot, but now I have a question about my subwoofer.

    I am not a huge audio person, I am into headphones though so you can use any audiophile slurs that you know; I'll probably understand them [​IMG]

    Anyways, I have a Pioneer VSX-D514K reciever which is a 5.1 500 watt setup. I have all five channels, but no subwoofer yet. I am planning on buying one in the very near future, however, so I wanted to make sure I am doing everything correctly thus far.

    I see that there are two different subwoofer ports on the back of my reciever. Due to setup, it would take hours to get into the back of this reciever to see what these ports are called. I also do not know if these are inputs or outputs. Unfortunately, I am not allowed to give out the website of the specifications because I haven't posted enough.

    So, my question is: What kind of subwoofer do I buy? I do not want the subwoofer to amplify any speakers, I just simply want it to output bass from my reciever.

    Any help is greatly appredciated.

    PS: Does anyone have a suggestion as to what is a good subwoofer to start with? Some requirements are that it has to be relatively cheap (sub 400 USD).

    Thanks a bunch!

    Under that price range you might want to get the HSU STF-2. It gets good reviews.
