    Given that a MkII offers a 10" driver in a compact cabinet, then yes it's a good buy for £300 in the high street.

    For £30 more, you could bolt on another 155w in a slightly bigger cabinet and get the BK XLS-200 which in performance terms is directly comparable with the MJ Ref 200.

    I know you're not looking for earth moving bass, but a good sub turned down will sound better than an average sub, as its working well within it's limits. When you move to somewhere bigger, it just saved you upgrading too.
