want to find a sub to pair with kef q100

receiver : onkyo txnr609

large grand room 15 x 25
sub 400 dollars
listen to 80 percent sports/ tv, 20 percent music / movies

or would it be better to get the centre first?

thanks

The Cadence CSX 12 or 15 is a good place to start. You may still be able to get $100 off at checkout using the code CA100.

That's a big room and kef aren't bassy speakers.

Consider getting two subs instead of one. Vanns frequently has 10" Klipsch subs in their clearance section for around $200. A pair of them would work.

I Love Vanns !!! I got my entire system from them and saved 70% what I would have paid through a local retailer (You know who you are BB). I added a center speaker to the mix that helped out the older folks not hearing the words too good due to bad hearing, I bought the JBL CSC56 300W 5" 2-Way Center Channel Speaker. It has fixed all my problems. Roughly $325.00 but, way worth it ! You can hear stuff that is usually said under the actors breath, which is a plus for me, since I could never hear that before due to the background music taking over, the center will fix that !

I have 2 subs and never tried it with one so, I have to agree with KidHorn on this one !

The JBL CSC56 would not be a good choice for the OP as a center channel. The center should be timbre matched, and the KEF Q200C seems to be the best option.

As for subs, in addition to kesando's recommendation, the BIC PL-200 could be a good choice for a home theater setup. Acoustic Design is known for taking offers below $300.

thanks for the replies.

I have to say that my room is big but when I'm watching tv I'm in an area about 18 x 12.

it is not enclosed. yet I'm rarely that far away. i just want to help my speakers out.

IM not looking for an awesome theatre sound.Nor am i looking for I don't spend my nights watching movies , tv or listening to music . I just want something to make my hockey games, odd movies and background music more enjoyable then the speakers from my 55 inch samsung tv.

thanks again

I'd get a center first, especially with your watching habits. Are you using the TV as your center right now?

Agreed; a center is probably a good idea. I watch a lot of sports myself, and find the dialog is much better with a dedicated center.

As far as subs go... check out the budget subwoofers thread. You'll more then likely find something that works there.
