- JBL ES150P
- JBL CSS10
- Infinity Primus II PS410
- Energy ESW-C10
- Sunfire SDS 8
- KEF C4 BL

I live in Brazil and it is what I can find in stores here in the range of $ 200.00 to $ 250.00 (in Brazil).

My receiver is a Yamaha RX-V475 and I already have four P153 bookshelf speakers and a center speaker P251.

I would go with the jbl es150...I had a es250 in my room for a bit and it was pretty decent for movies, slightly boomy on music, but overall was pretty good for a budget sub.

There are reports in Brazil that the PS410 stops working, but the cause is unknown! Maybe it's the logic board ... There are no reports in the USA?

I decided to buy the PS410, but I'm scared!

If you've read bad reports about the Infinity and you're scared...why would you buy it? confused.gif Why not buy the JBL instead?

Almost all electronics equipment has reports of problems on the internet ... I want to know if it is an isolated problem or common!

Here in Brazil this niche market is unknown. The boxed are more common! Perhaps there is a niche in USA larger and with better information.

I imagine that members of AVS have better information than the forums here.

PS410 bought!

Will combine with the P153 and P521, as they are the same brand and same product line!

I hope to be lucky ... Despite reports cited, many people are happy with this subwoofer!

Exactly that!

I just need to put a protection on the power grid ... A power conditioner, for example.
