    looking for a sub that is dynamic and fast rather than deep and fluffy, budget around 350pounds.
    Any thoughts, deep deep not my need but fast and tight is.

    Just a heads up. Subwoofers with a higher/optimised system Q tend to be fast and tight, although subs with an optimum Q 0.5, tend to be more accurate.

    It all comes down to system implimentation, and if its built proper.

    The bk subs.....for the money are very very good. I had dual 400's and they are nice in all respects of output.

    The effect your room has on the output is far more likely to be causing 'overhang', 'boominess', etc.

    Do you have electronic EQ in your system?

    Have you bought a calibrated microphone and downloaded Room EQ Wizard (REW) so that you can measure exactly what it is you might be having issues with currently?

    Ended up getting a SVS sb2000 way over budget ,turns out my very big viewing room needed some grunt. Managed to get an ex demo one at a acceptable price and the home trial just blew me away, Totally amazing. Never thought a piece of audio equipment could make such a difference to movie night enjoyment
