Well I just purchased my first set of klipsch speakers (KG 4.2 and KG 1.2v center) and they sound great, but my current sub (Yamaha yst-sw216) is basically useless with my new speakers. So my question is when looking for a good sub what do you look for?

To start, it would help if you were to answer some (ideally, most) of the questions in post #1 of this thread :

1. Your budget.

2. Size requirements/limits.

3. Room dimensions.

4. Primary uses.

5. Listening habits.

6. Appearance requirements.

7. Timeframe.


Otherwise, you might get recommendations for a $2,300 Seaton SubMersive HP, when all you've got is an 10' x 12' room and $250 to spend.

Just realized that my reply didn't directly address the OP's question... d'oh!
...so here goes again:

I look for a combination of the following:

- a sub with good specs;

- a sub with positive reviews (both professional and non-professional);

- a sub that looks good (because aesthetics do matter);

- a company with a reasonably good (or better) reputation; and

- positive word of mouth from people I deem to be knowledgeable and trustworthy.


(The list is not in any particular order, and may not be exhaustive.)

Thank for the feed back guys.

I have been looking at the spec on subs but what numbers should I be looking for on subs? Watts.... Ohms.... Herts...... And what exactly do these specs mean as far as the performance?
