I know people ask what subwoofer to buy all the time, so I appologize before hand. However I think my situation is a little different. I have what many of you would consider a low end system


Denon AVR788

Polk Monitor 50s as fronts

Polk CS1

2 Polk M20s as surrounds


My receiver can do 7.1 but I don't have the room for 2 more speakers since I move back and forth between school and my parents house.


Anyway, I am more than happy with the sound from my set up. Actually that is sort of an understatement, since I am quite amazed with it honestly.


Now I know the BIC H100 seems to be the best "low end" subwoofer on this forum, but with my set up should I get one of those or a Polk subwoofer for around 150 that would be more in line with my system.


I get quite a bit of bass from my Monitor 50s, but I feel after 6 months I need a subwoofer now.


Thank you for your help.

Know any good places to order one? Or is the reseller on ebay still the best bet for the lowest price?

As I recall, the best prices were from eBay resellers. They used to take bids under $200. May not be the case anymore.

Well, Im in the bay area. to be honest, you can probably get a brand new one off ebay for what you would get mine for after shipping. mines in perfect condition, but if you can get brand new ina box, why not?


well, after looking on ebay, they seem to have gone up in price. i will PM you some infor right now.

of course the only thing I am worried about it it not working since I can't test it out but I have no issues buying used products

the first one is the real h-100. the second one is the pa-120. its almost the same sub so it gets called alot of things. i would call the place i pm'd you and talk to them . they are pretty cool and might be able to work something out with you. its a little confusing. theres a thread all about the pa-120 you could look into.


honestly any of those 3 are pretty much the same. the deal you found is great.....maybe he could send you a quick vid clip of it powering on and the cone moving? that would satisfy me if i were buying it.

I think I may just get it from here

http://www.overstock.com/Electronics...rchtype=Header


same price, shipping is just a few dollars



I just don't know how I would pay for an item from someone a few states over. I'm not that comfortable with just giving someone 200 dollars and hoping I get something mailed to me. Plus there could be the whole issue of damages in shipping.


EDIT: I didn't realize I could purchase directly from acousticsounddesign and not go through ebay



what do you think I should offer for this one? http://www.acousticsounddesign.com/c...r.cfm?pid=1062

FWIW, I got my BIC H-100 from Overstock back in the Spring. They shipped it in a factory box. It was packed very well and it arrived in A-1 condition. Best of all and most importantly, the sub is just a great performer IMO. I use it in a 5.1 set-up that has 4 x Polk R150 and 1 x Polk CSR.
