    BK XLS 200 good enough for Hi Fi music?

    Sorry to ask this as there are so many similar threads, but my question is quite specific. Would the BK XLS 200 sub woofer be enough to give me a good Hi-Fi, stereo sound for music? I know that the XXLS 400 provides more grunt and "room pressurising" and "window rattling" etc but what I am...

    Speaker newbie

    I'm a bit new to the Hifi separate thing. I'm wondering what to look for when it comes to getting some nice warm, a good sound stage and good base levels in speakers. Is there a frequency, speaker diameter etc to look out for. Don't want to be spending stupid amounts of money either.
