    I'm looking for a sub to go with my setup and my Denon AVR-1705 reciever.

    Are there any good subs for £180 or lower or not?

    I've been looking at the Wharfedale Powercube 10A sub, is it any good?

    Thanx

    Probably not as they tend to be boom boxes with loads of distortion.

    AV-Sales have a special offer on the run out Velodyne CHT range of subwoofers and the Velodyne CHT-8 at £188 should knock spots off the Powercube

    See here for details

    If you can add a few pounds to your budget you will open up some good options.

    MS409 and MS309 from Mordaunt Short. (£240 approx for each if you hunt around, the MS309 can be had for cheaper)

    Ruark Vita 100 from BK Electronics.

    The Velodyne that Ian mentions, or even better, the 10" Velo CHT-10 at £210 I believe in the power buy.

    Will my other speakers be an issue? I already have them, they are:
    Eltax Concept 400 fornt
    Wharfedale Diamond 8+ centre
    Wharfedale DFS-18 rear

    Also would any of the subs being metioned be better for music than others because this will be my primary use(though they have to be good for movies too)??

    I can't stretch further than £200 because i'm only 14!!

    Cheers.

    Borrow £10 off your family, Mum, Dad, Auntie or someone. Offer to wash the car/windows, cut the grass (a bit early yet) and get yourself a Velodyne CHT10 from the Powerbuy forum. You won't be disappointed and that sub, from my own experience, is at least 10 times better than the Wharfedale Powercube10a.

    Now i've got £210 to spend. Is there no other competitors for that amount compared to the Velodyne CHT-10?

    Do you think the rest of my system is good for a 14 yr old? :D

    Cheers.

    Very good setup. I've got Wharfedale Diamonds alround and I'm 35!
    I think back to when I was 14 and I was well chuffed with my Amstrad Stereo with twin tape decks. I couldn't afford a VHS or Betamax video cos they were £300-400!

    IMO you won't beat the Velodyne for £200.

    It's good to see a 14yr old spending their dosh on something decent rather than hanging around on street corners and getting into trouble.

    Enjoy your sysntem young man...PJ

    Gosh I sound like an old fart... :D
