I have no idea if this is a reputable company or not. With all the quality audio and speaker manufacturers in this world, why would anyone consider anything else? It's not like you don't have a...

Don't pay too much attention to shadyj's ongoing (for over a year now) anti-PSA campaign. You can find the data on many of the subs we are talking about (including PSA) on data-bass.com.

Wise decision to save until you can get a sub worthy of your HT. You'd have to talk to EMP Tek to see what kind of deal they would offer you. Never hearing the EMP Tek sub, I'd have no idea what...

Not sure how large your room is, or if it's open to other rooms, but PSA makes some powerful subs. I own the XS30 and it sits in a 3,400 cu. ft. room. My single sub is very effective, but it does...

You are asking for 3 requirements that aren't compatible: powerful bass, small size and under $400. There is only so much a small speaker can do. The only active speaker I'm aware of that provides...

With 8-foot (2.44 M) high ceilings that puts your volume at just over 5,000 cu. ft. (141 cu. M). That is considered at the edge of an "extreme" room size. There are plenty of great subs that will...

I doubt that EMP Tek would reduce the price that much to fit your budget. Again, I agree with Batman, save your money until a better sub is viable. However, I doubt that EMP Tek would ever put out...
