Looking for the best subwoofer for appx $350. I know I cant get an outstanding subwoofer for that price. I am not looking to shake the walls just a nice clean bass  sound for TV and some music.  Room is fairly large 20x20 12 ft ceiling.  Currently have surround sound speakers  installed in the ceiling.

 

Any thoughts on the HSU STF-2 or Boston Acoustics ASW 250?  Thanks for any feedback or suggestions.

The nxg is what I am getting based on a respected member review of it. Jim Wilson has much love for this sub. Check our his review at htshack forums

From the reviews I would look at the NXG or the PA-150. The PA-150 is supposed to have great output 40 HZ and above.

$405 shipped if you can squeeze another $55 out:

If I had to spend less than $500 on a sub, it probably be a HSU.

Over budget ... Reaction Audio for $429

I keep seeing a couple people suggest getting a Reaction sub. I've seen some pretty good numbers posted but my question is....Have they shipped any subs yet and if so, does anyone around here actually have one?


Ok, found the official thread and someone ordered one and is expecting delivery soon.

If you search there was another member who posted his feedback here, it was very positive.

I was going between the reaction and the nxg. I went with the nxg because it fell more in my price range . From the reviews it seems the reaction subs are getting great feedback. If it was in the budget I would have bought the reaction.
