Hello,

Could someone give me a recommendation for a in-wall subwoover? I found this one on amazon which I'm thinking of getting: http://www.amazon.com/Pyle-PDIWS10-1...8&sr=1-2-spell

Due to the limited space, and since I already have all in-wall & ceiling surround speakers, I want the in-wall subwoover over the standard one. Also, I'm assuming they are passive subwoovers, so any recommendations for an amp to accompany it would help. I using an Onkyo TX-NR609 receiver. I have access behind the wall (this is also where all my equipment is - receivers, etc.) so it'll be pretty easy to connect.

Thanks!

$40 for that Pyle. The only in-wall sub I have direct experience with was Triad that probably cost 10X that much, maybe 20X.

What's your budget? Lots of in-wall options out there, but not many for under $100.

ETA - they'll probably move this thread to the subwoofer forum

Looking to only spend a few hundred, maybe $500 tops with the amp.

That's not a lot for an in-wall subwoofer + amp.

My $0.02: Spend most of your budget on an amplifier that's intended for use with an in-wall subwoofer.

Worst case, you're out $40 and have a good amp to use when you have a few hundred for a better subwoofer.

PM if interested in a demo Triad Bronze in-ceiling sub with amp. It will work fine in the wall if you have space behind the wall so you are not limited to 4" depth.

That would be a heck of a deal for $500.

Too bad the budget didn't fall south of $7000.........

The RB Radia BGX-S12B In-Wall System is the best in-wall woofer system period.......with four subs, each sub at the wall mid-line is something to behold!

JBL HTI88 works well if your needs are modest.

If you have an attic there are a lot of creative options to use conventional subs with grilles or infinite baffle solutions.

$500 to $650 isn't a whole lot more for something that is actually useful.

That would be my suggestion as well but I'm not sure $500 is quite high enough to get one done and I'm not sure he has any interest in diy. Though maybe he could find some decent drivers with closeout pricing(I haven't looked lately). It would definitely outperform any commercial in-wall sub.

I've had good success with Polk in-wall and in-ceiling speakers. They even have an in-wall sub, I believe. Can't remember the model #s off hand, but I listened to 3 or 4 brands and thought the best sound for a modest cost was the Polks.

Edit: I had the RCi series of speakers.

Visit the Lipszyc Home Theater! 1.0
