Yamaha NS-SW200 or NS-SW300 (or something completely different ;-) )
 
Hi,
As I have a Yamaha RX-V685-receiver with 2 MusicCast 20 wireless surround speakers I would like to add a sub, preferably a Yamaha. But a JBL might also be an option as the 2 front speakers are 2 ancient JBL-towers. ;-)
Still don't know what would lack if I buy the slightly cheaper SW200-sub. The SW300 goes a bit lower with respect to frequency, but what would I notice? I've read around but can't figure it out completely. My ears are, just like me, 51 years old, but in good shape though. ;-)
Any help would be appreciated.

Any particular reason you are wanting to stick w/ Yamaha or JBL?
What is your usage pattern for this system? Music, movies, or a mix?
How loud are looking to go?
How big is the room that you will be using it in?
Are you trying to stay within a certain budget?

My personal pick for the price range of the 2 Yamahas which would do well for both music and movies is the RSL Speedwoofer.

Of course others will likely have many other recommendations based on how you reply to my questions above.

Edit:

I just noticed you are in the Netherlands. I am not familiar with which brands are available to you. RSL states that they ship international but you've got to message them to get a quote.

Good questions. The part where the setup is placed is approx 5m by 7m, whereas the part were we sit might be only 5 by 4. Well, was thinking of Yamaha/JBL due to the fact that with other brands I get a total mixup of brands. Might be not too much of a problem, but a little uniformity is nice. The fronts are JBL, the center is a Polk.
I'm using it for movies and music and it doesn't have to get very loud as I have some neighbours. ;-)
Max €400, so that's be about $440.
I'll check out the brand. I also saw the quite cheap Jamo SUB 210 (€149) which get good reviews, but frequency-range starts at 38.
I've checked out the RSL. Not bad. I'm afraid shipping to the Netherlands might add a bunch of customs.

I also saw the Quadral Qube 10 on discount for €400, getting low to 22Hz: http://www.quadral.com/lautsprecher/qube-10-aktiv/ . That comes close to the RSL.

Update after a few hours: decided to go 'cheap' and buy the Jamo. If it's disappointing I can return it within 30 days.
