I've been reading this forum avidly since discovering it a few months ago, but this is my first post. I havent been able to find any discussion like this, so here goes... I would like to hear some recommendations for what you think are the best subwoofers in the $300 to $400 range. The SVS would be great, but it is more than I want to spend. The Sony SA-WM40, Audiosource SW15, and the DLS are great *for the money*. Is there anything out there worth a little more though? If I can spend twice as much as these budget subs, is there something significantly better available? I don't want to spend any more money on this, so please no suggestions to wait and save. I have made some DIY subs in the past for my car, but it isn't an option right now. I also want something that is readily available, where I know what I'll get and I can listen to first. For that reason, I am unlikely to go the 'custom made sub' route. (Are there custom mades that would serve my purpose and my price though?) I will be using it for Movies mostly, since my main speakers go pretty low (no measurements) and cover most/all music. Therefore my biggest concern is extension, though I would like quality sound and love the tight feeling of sealed subs. I don't care much about size, a little about appearance, although SAF would always be a good thing. I live in an apartment, with a Living Room that is about (I'm guessing) 22x16x8high but that doesn't include an attached 10x10 dining area, and hallway. B/c of living in an apartment, I have considered just getting some bass shakers and would like to know what people think about that, given my equipment. I could power them with an old 100W receiver I have. --My equipment Receiver: Denon 1803 Mains: Klipsch KG5.2 (10" woof & 12" passive) Center: Klipsch RC3-II Rears: Polk (M100??) triangle shaped corner/bookshelves DVD: Panasonic RP62 TV: old 27" (next upgrade) Thank you all for your input - sorry about the length. I thought it better to answer all these questions up front.
