    Whats the best first time subwoofer for a home cinema setup which will play music to... I'd say a 40/20/40 split tv+anime/movies/music.

    Please correct me if I'm wrong but a subwoofer is a good point of entry to invest in right? i.e. not something I should skimp on?

    I'm prepared to spend around £500 or so for a nice subwoofer.

    Is that a decent price before diminishing returns start kicking in?



    I travel a lot.. move every year or so as I'm a doctor. Varying from houses to smaller apartments.

    Have a look at bk electronics, make good subs and British hand made.

    £500 will get you a decent sub 'off the shelf'.

    You could always DIY/commission something for a similar amount of money!

    Hmmm...

    Could I get a BK monolith for the price?


    I'm terrible at DIY etc.!


    My setup will be a

    KEF Q500
    KEF Q200c
    KEF Q100 rears
    AVR 3300

    Would a BK monolith be good for this setup?

    Speak to Tom at Bk, he is very helpful. Tell him the size of your room and what you listen to. I have bk xxls 200 and it certainly gives out some Base. Haven't heard a monolith but according to a lot of people on this site it is popular.
