Hey all. So my old subwoofer went kaput. its a long story, read the thread "definitive Sub" if u want details. Now im in the market for a new sub. unfortunately im stuck in the $200-$300 price range. I'm currently in a 800 sqft apartment and am looking to buy a house with my gf. so i want something that wont be too overpowering for an apartment but that can also put out enough solid sound for a full size family room. I will be using this sub for mostly movies / gaming. Music will be used a lot too but it just wont be a major focus. my old sub was a front firing definitive tech 700w sub. i know that i cant expect to match that with my price range, so i'm open to suggestions.

Ditto for the RW-12D.

If you get a sub that can meet your demands with movies, the music will be covered in spades.

As an aside - I always find it amusing when folks don't want an "overpowering" sub...there just ain't no such thing. biggrin.gif

FL/R: Klipschorn
CC: Klipsch RC64ii
SUR: Polk LS F/X x 4

DISP: Mitsubishi WD-73740
