For some of the folks who are newer to the subwoofer world, I thought a list of the various brands that are available could be helpful. Many who do their shopping primarily at places such as Circuit City or Best Buy may mistakenly believe that the only subs available come from brands such as Polk, Sony, Boston, etc.

This list is not intended be a ranking of any kind, just a list of brand names. I had thought about also listing links to brand sites but I'm not sure how that would sit with the moderators, so for now I won't. I'll start the list off, but I will need your help by posting additional brands that I can't think of.

If the moderators see fit to do so, perhaps they can sticky this. Here goes:

ACI
ADS
Aerial
Altec Lansing
Aperion
Athena
Atlantic Technology
Audiosource
AV123
Axiom
Bag End
B&W
Bic
Boston
Carver
Cambridge Sound
Canton
Cerwin-Vega
Danley
Dayton
Definitive Technology
Dynaudio
Earthquake
Elan
Elemental Designs
Emotiva
Energy
Epik
Focal
Genelec
HSU
Infinity
James
Jamo
JBL
JL Audio
KEF
Klipsch
Krell
Legacy
M&K
Martin Logan
MB Quart
McIntosh
Mirage
Monitor Audio
Monster
Mordaunt Short
MTX
Muse
NHT
Nola
Onkyo
Outlaw
Paradigm
Phase Technology
Polk
PowerBass USA
PSB
RBH
Rel
Revel
Seaton
Sony
Sunfire
SVS
Talon
Thigpen
Totem
Triad
Velodyne
VMPS
Von Schweikert Research
Wilson
Yamaha


C'mon folks. Help me out. What brands have I forgotten? I will try to periodically update this list.

OK,
Here are a few more. These are some that may not get as much play as others. Either people feel that they are too much money or just not enough name recognition.
Dynaudio
Nola
Revel
Thiel
Aerial
Triad
RBH

It ain't easy being green.

This will quickly turn into the never ending list...

I don't lurk as much as I used to and I NEVER listen. Comes from being old and cynical.

I'd count it if they make a sub that you can actually buy separately. I don't know if they do.
