    I'm borrowing a friend's sub at the moment to test out some of my movies and amp.<br />The make is GLL has anyone heard of this?<br />Its about 45*45*45 (cm) and rattles some of my shelves in the bedroom above <img src="smile.gif" border="0"> But it sounds awful on some of my music CDs and gives quite awful distortion. It seems to go quite low but is the distortion etc on this sub indicative of a £250 sub? I was just wondering what to expect as this is the first time i've listened to a home cinema sub and although made my smile on some scenes from Blade it was a little disappointing.<br />Do the Rels and other expensive subs(Q150, Q100 etc) give a nice punchy bass on music or films or do they just go low and sort of shake the room, I hope you know what I mean.<br />I am going to demo a Rel Q150 at the end of October (hopefully) and I just need to know what to expect really.<br />Anyone with comments on subs in general and how they should behave would be helpful.

    GLL was a budget speaker manufacturer who's name was mentioned quite a lot when I first became interested in home cinema a few years ago but I haven't seen any mention in the last two or three years.

    I think that you will find that a more expensive sub has more grip (probably wrong word but hopefully you know what I mean) whereas the budget models can be more flabby.

    I am still using the original Q Bass which I am more than happy with.

    Regards

    It may be that the actual speaker is a 12" and if I remember from my car audio days the bigger the sub the more flabby it gets when it comes to tight punchy bass.<br />Well i'll see when I audition the Rel soon <img src="biggrin.gif" border="0">
