Budget subwoofer to complete system


Standard Member
Hi all

I just got a CA 540A V2 and CA540C V2 and Wharfedale Diamond 9.1 bookshelf speakers. They sound really good for middle and high end music. However, on some electronic stuff (eg In flowers by Animal Collective) the bass is not as overwhelming as it could be. I am not basshead but some of the impact from these type of tracks seems a little lost. Do I just give the speakers some time or should I be looking at a sub? My budget is probably $500 Australian.
