Sometimes I get tickled hearing people talk about "musical" when it comes to subwoofers and then mention their budget is at the low end. I've had M&K subs, I've had Sonance subs and the price ranges were in the $800 - $1400 ranges. Now I have a PL-200 and it blows away the more expensive competition. $279 is a great price and you'll have to spend much more for no or little difference in sound. This is a great sub PERIOD. Do better subs exist? Yes. Are they much more expensive? Yes. Do they sound much much better? No. BIC is doing it right. I now have a complete BIC speaker system. If you compare price and sound together, they are unbeatable IMO.
Remember, with home theater equipment, if you double your budget, the sound quality does not double. I'd say (and this is not scientific), if you double your price the sound quality will only go up by 10%-20%. It's very exponential.
