This is a great thread. I read most every post and decided to order the PL-200 tonight. Got it for $279 and that seems like an amazing price for what you get. Considered a A2-300 but at over $400 it didn't seem like it was worth the extra cost.
I'll be replacing my 10 year old Cerwin Vega HT-S10 with is a 10" down firing sub with 100W, it has served me well but I upgraded all my other speakers almost 2 years ago and my AV receiver last year.
The PL-200 will be used with my Yamaha RX-V3900 AV Reciever, Energy C-500 front towers, Energy C-C100 center channel, and Energy C-200 bookshelf rears.
I do 90% gaming/movies on this setup and 10% music at most. So this seemed like the best sub for me.
Hopefully I have no issues with it and it does what I'm hoping it'll do. I missed out on a clearance Energy ESW-V10 a few months ago and think this is a great alternative, and it is cheaper too.
