Anyone know of a good 12" or 15" passive sub? I already have an amp, so i would like to take advantage of it. I see a lot on the pro audio side of things, but wonder how that would work out in a HT. Any suggestions?

What amp do you have and what are you looking for in the sub? This for a 2 channel music system? Multi channel HT? What are the details of the room it's going in to?

From what I've seen of pro audio subs it's more about dj or performance of music and less about furniture than many home audio subs, but may not offer the lowest freqencies that you might want for LFE.

Is it too free to control?" - Don Van Vliet (aka Captain Beefheart) discussing commercial success in the music biz
