    Checking out both subs.

    Seems to be exact opposite of each others.

    The mirage is very small...but had great reviews. I am wondering why I can't read the HCC review about it? According to Mirage it was HC subwoofer of the year with HCC.
    Anyway i am interested in people who have used or are using this sub.

    Second subwoofer I am looking at...is the ASw1000. It seems to be a huge monster sub. But comaparable to the REl 100.
    Only problem is that it 's troublesome to position. Can some here clarify this? What does it mean and what's the best position for teh sub.

    I have a Mirage FRX8 which I have been using for a couple of years with my FRX series speakers.

    I bought it not just because of the great reviews but due to a 2 hour demo I was given by a Mirage dealer in Langley. It's a little firecracker - 8 inch driver 150 rms (I think!). The bass is super fast and really punchy with music and gets low (but please remember it only has an 8 inch driver) with movies. Its a great music / movies compromise sub,

    I use it in a room about 18 by 15 ft and it copes easily.

    Thanks. Someone wants to sell it for 70 GBP to me.
    Seems awfully cheap to me.

    Sounds on the low side = confirm condition before you buy. They were around £250-300 new.
