    Currently I have a Klipsch KSW-15 Sub. It has done well with little complaint from me with the exception that it tends to be a little "boomy" with music.

    What is better:

    1. two smaller subs

    2. two larger subs

    3. one better quality sub

    4. DIY sub (I'm fairly good with wood,etc)

    5. Other that I have not thought of.

    Thanks for your advise!

    If you are good with wood and would enjoy the project, 4 hands down.

    What type of budget are you working with?

    I'd have to say #4 also. As I've said before, pick a price point (any price point). A DIY sub at a given price point should almost always bury a commercially available sub or speaker at that same price point. There are 1 or 2 exceptions, but only at the really low end of the spectrum, AFAIK.

    I would opt for a kilelr DIY sub. Choose a driver that has a heavy duty magnet and good peak to peak excursion, design a nice ported tube or box with sufficient volume and porting and away you go.
