I'm wondering if I should try to get a used pair of focus 260's or maybe a small JL sub- like the e-110. Or if anyone has other suggestions... I like the idea of the focus 260's, but am wondering if I'd even be able to hear them in such a small room.
Are there any other small subs which have the clairity of the JL's? I haven't heard them yet, but I was fussy in a showroom and they were recommended. I didn't like the RELs etc.
I have a parasound 2100 preamp and 2125 amp. Old Bel Canto DAC2 and an old Sony ES 5 disc player.
I have the excite 12's playing right now in my 2 channel set up,my room is bigger though (11x13) and at one time i brought up one of my fathom 112's from home theater to try here with them...it was fantastic,plenty of chest thumping bass,and the fathom is easy to set up/blend with the excite's.I would think the E-110 might be just what you need,great subs,that you can always use for home theater,or 2 channel,now if you go with the focus 260's,you run the risk of them NOT working in that small space,but i would think they might be ok,there are plenty of 260 fans here that will probably give you their thoughts,myself,i would get the sub.
