You mention being on a low budget, and that subs in the $300 range are outside your budget, but what would be helpful is to know what your budget really is. That info will allow people to tailor their suggestions around your specific needs. You also might want to take a look at Link. All the relevant information you're likely to be asked is listed there.
Hi, my budget is up to US$300, the Klispch and the BIC are a little bit above that price target, but i could drop it on eBay with a coupon, or save a bit more and buy them at their $329 levels. It is not like i am in urgent need for a subwoofer, the soundbar i just bought can work as it is for a while. If the Klipsch/new BIC model are good enough for their price, i could wait until Black Friday, save a little bit more of money and then wait for a sale.
The room i am going to use it, is a 10'x12' bedroom, i am not sure if the 12" Klipsch/BIC are too big, but i would like it to sound loud. If possible, to make it shake the windows. May be a 10" subwoofer with a price range up to $300 would be enough.
My primary uses are movies(Netflix, Amazon Video, HBO Go) with an ocasional use of music(Spotify, Tidal, Youtube). But with the focus being in the movies.
I dont mind about appearences. I just like to have a good sound, that's why my planning/budget goes for a 2.1 setup, being my next buy the subwoofer. I didn't know the ampl. requirements of the Elac B6, may be i would need to do some research. However, the receiver would be the last thing i would buy(the 4K/UHD standard still seems to be in the works)
