Hello,

I was just given a Klipsch "Sub 6". I have tried looking this up, but can't find much about it. I don't have an amp to power it but am looking for one. Is this a good woofer? I'm thinking about on getting the Denon AVR X1000. Would this be a good buy?

A quick Google for "Klipsch sub 6" says it has a 6.5" driver and an 80W (RMS?) amp. It might be a good woofer, but IMO it's not much of a subwoofer.

If it has the features you want/need and it fits your budget, yes.

What do you mean by this? do you not think it would be a good movie woofer?

Good subs for HT go down to at least 30Hz. Six inch drivers don't, at least not with enough output to be heard more a few feet away. Real HT subs are loaded with at least ten inch drivers.

Thanks for the info, understanding now. So, would this thing not sound good at all? I was going to buy a receiver for this thing but I guess not no more... or should I buy it anyways and just use it for the time being? My bedroom is quite small 12x12.

It won't go very low or very loud, so I wouldn't bother with it. It's intent isn't as a real HT sub, it's made to add a measure of bass to very small mains that only go down to 160Hz or so.

Are you aware that you'll need main speakers as well? And, AFAIK, the Sub 6 is powered.

They came with speakers as well... It looks like it was the whole package from the HD300 they used to offer.
