Budget of around $250, Preferably less.

I was going to just get the AE S8 Sub to match but for that price ($261 shipped with the promo code which is still valid I think) I should be able to get something better? I like low lows. Things like Lil Jon, Chemical Brothers, etc. Any suggestions? My AE5 has the sub out*

Given the the FR of the Audioengine S8 is 27-180, these are meant for satellites, or the Audioengine A2s.


I think there are plenty of quality budget choices for you:


Dayton HSU/Elite 10

The Speaker Company's ASW-10 (or dual ASW-8s)
http://www.thespeakercompany.com/ASW...oofer-P62.aspx


BIC America F12

eBay or Amazon ( http://www.amazon.com/exec/obidos/tg...X0DER&v=glance )


Premier Acoustic PA-120

You aren't going to find a great SUPER-low sub for this price... if you want to step up and go to into the teens for frequency response, you are looking at $350-$500 for the budget subs (AV123 MFW-15 or eD A2-300)


I don't want to sound like a nagger, but do a search for "budget subs" or "budget musical subs" and you will find a plethora of information on the forum!


Good luck!

You aren't nagging at all. I'm very uninformed at this point and still learning. I appreciate any help at all. Everyone needs a place to start and your advise helps a lot. I also was looking at the F12. Saw the thread on here with a picture of the connections. the AudioEngines have RCA out but the F12 has a mono in? How do I connect them? Is it Y cable with male RCA, and male mono?
