    Can anyone help with some advice. New to subs and have had both of these models offered to me in the price that I can afford (£175). Does any one have any experiences (good or bad) that they could pass on please??

    I am running B&w DM602s3's, Mission 77ds, Mission 77c, Marantz SR5200. Arcam CD72T, Pioneer DV 535.

    I found a review of the B&W AS500 here and they didn't think a great deal of it.

    The Q Bass was a fine subwoofer in it's day ( I had one) but they must be getting a bit long in the tooth by now and I think that £175 may bit a touch too expensive

    Thanks Ian.

    Doesn't sound too good then for my meagre budget!?!

    Any other suggestions??

    There are normally some good Paradigm subs in the classifed forum here but there doesn't seem to be any at the moment. Keep looking though as they are like busses and several will come along together.

    If you can hang on a little while, I've just agreed to buy a Rel so my trusty Paradigm PDR-10 will be up for sale soon. :D

    Cheers

    Kevin.
