£50 more will get you a BK Gemini. As far as I have heard BK are a very good company so I dont think you should have any real problems.

Wait for someone who knows better to come along though.

yeah I saw that although the gemini is supposed to be very good am concerned it will be a bit too meaty for my requirements, the room its going into isnt huge and I do have neighbours on one side, plus its going to be hidden under a table so the small size of the minotaur would be ideal (usual wife requirements) :rolleyes:

Have a close look at the pictures and specs of the Minotaur then have a close look at the specs and pictures of the multi award winning MJ Acoustics Pro 50 :)

Then have a look at the 550 quid difference in price!!:eek:


If I told the wife I was spending 700 pound for a sub she would execute me!!:rotfl:

Correct me if I'm wrong, but isn't the price difference more like £150? :confused:

I've got one, running from the bi amp output on my Shearne Hi Fi System.
Was worth every penny, child friendly,Wife friendly:clap: Not dog friendly when you play something like Twister useing the two floorstanders and the sub - He hates thunder and lightning:rolleyes: Waiting to get my copy of Perfect Storm back.:)
Have mine set up on a carpeted concrete floor using the supplied spikes, and am still experimenting with the settings but have main volume set at about 45%.
Also works well with music- Dire Straits- Money For Nothing on the turntable, Also a track I would personally recommend people to try is Relax- Frankie Goes to Hollywood.:smashin: :thumbsup:

I got one in black last week to match the YSP 800 I had recently purchased.
Its my first sub so I"m not really up to speed setting it up.
However I had War of The Worlds on whilst adjusting.
Its on a carpeted wooden floor and I think I need to isolate it somehow because I"m getting vibrations, got it turned down quite low.
Appreciate any advice on settings/stand for it.
