Yeah I agree, from all I've read the PA 150 is a great sub for under $500 as long as you aren't looking for much output below 30 Hz (IIRC). But for anything above that it's a great sub. Should be good for music and at a good price.

Yeah, and I think as a last resort, if OP still does not get the output he needs he can get a second one down the road when the budget allows to gain the extra 6 dB of output.

I think Bill has seen this thread and is staying away from this 6 db. thing, lol. It is simple to do, get a spl meter and with subs in the room greater than 1/4 wave length, turn one sub and measure at the MLP. Then turn the second sub on and measure. It will not be 6db. I have done this many times.

The PB 1000 does wink.gif

Oh I don't have the definitive answer here, just regurgitating what I heard.  I believe you though.  However, I do remember seeing someone say they gained 7 or 8 dB adding a second sub.  I figured it was the 6 plus room gain?  I have no first hand experience with this.
