For someone into vintage items perhaps, but 25 year old speakers probably won't have much interest beyond those folks.

Walk over to the nearest mirror in your house and ask yourself "since I really like what I got for my money, is there any reason I shouldn't own 2?". :)

Glad to hear it worked out for you. It's quite a lot of sub for very few dollars.

I haven't heard that one myself - so I can't comment from direct experience - but from the posts I've read it sounds like it's decent for HT but less impressive with music. An argument could...

The HSU will almost certainly have better SQ than the BIC subs, so from that standpoint you're correct. Total output probably favors the H-100/PL-200 though, and given the fact your room is over...

I don't know of any company willing to pay the shipping to them for a warranty repair, let alone one who makes budget subwoofers, so I suspect NXG won't either. That's why others have opted to ship...

You are indeed correct, and it's the one I've had better luck with myself.

The PL-200 is BIC's top of the line sub, so in that regard it stands to reason it has more potential then the H-100II. In relative terms $80 is not a lot of money, but in relation to the difference...

So the purpose of the vents is mostly to create a breeze then, not reproduce sound? When I put my ear close to the port opening(s) I hear the backwave off the driver, and it's making sound too. Of...

The difference between the two would be minimal really; they're both inexpensive subwoofers, meaning it won't be possible for any of them to provide depth, sound quality and output in equal...

Virtually all front-firing subs have the driver behind a grill, so does the same hold true for them as well?

You're quite welcome. I'm glad my reviews have proven beneficial.

The H-100II and NX-BAS-500 are two of the better ones I've heard, so in my opinion you can't go wrong with either. If you want...

A cabinet divider, in and of itself, won't indicate that the sub is a "mid bass module". The TS parameters of the driver could very well have been designed to work effectively in the volume it was...

Better in what respect? Having heard both I would say output wise the Cadence gets the nod, but SQ the NXG has the advantage. Depends upon what is the most important attribute to you really.
