    What are some subs that are equal to or greater in performance compared to the Sony SAWM40, but that I may be able to find used or on special for a price that is similar to the SAWM40 (which is about $160)?

    Maybe not quite that cheap, but the least expensive yamaha subwoofer is similar in performance, if not a little better. Look for that subwoofer. Check out the yamaha website to see the smallest subwoofer.

    serioulsy maybe a JBL PB10, but I'm pretty sure those are about $40-$50 more.

    The Yamahas will have better performance in a smaller footprint, but of the 3 more common ones (YST-SW105,205,305), only the 305 has the same low end extension.

    The DLS 10 inch sub from Parts Express (part number 300-630) is supposed to be quite a performer for the money. And for only $100 each you could buy 2 and spend only $40 over the Sony. If you're interested then go to the tech talk forum at Parts Express ( http://pesupport.com/cgi-bin/config.pl ) and search for posts on that part number.

    I have the DLS 10 inch sub. I like it, but have never heard a better sub other than in a store. I'd love to see or evenbe involved in a shoot-out of el-cheapo subs.
