Hello all,

I need some help with my fledgling setup and I have limited experience with home audio.

A. What I have

- Bose surround speakers (5 of them, used, from an acoustimass 10? system)

- Onkyo TXSR577 AV Receiver

B. My constraints

- I have heard bose speakers are not a good deal bang for buck BUT I am trying to limit further spend for now

C. What I am missing

- A subwoofer

I have heard that Bose speakers ONLY work with Bose Woofers. My question to the forum is

1. Can you confirm this?

2. If so, where wd you recommend I can pick up a bose woofer?

3. If not what other affordable and compatible woofer wd you recommend

The problem with blows, sorry, meant bose, is that the little satellites they have don't have any kind of low end response at all so you will need a sub that will reach up to 150-200 hz. Most smaller subs should be able to do this but truthfully I don't like a subwoofer handling response up that high. You lose clarity in my opinion.
