Any one been able to do this audition ?
I would be interested in this also - is anyone able to comment?
It's looking like the BK might be the better sub. There's an old thread comparing the 2 here... http://www.avforums.com/forums/showthread.php?t=96056&highlight=xls200
...there isn't really a definitive answer though
For the cherry finish the BK is also 120 spots cheaper
I'm gonna be buying a sub soon and these were the two I was considering - shame you can't demo the BK.
What about the REL Quake? Does anyone know how this compares to the Ref100 (these are two subs I can demo)?
Is the Sidney Acoustics AR-12, it's made in Israel and his limited marketing in France.
Be patient with the link it can be slow. It sells for c. 500 in France, which puts it broadly competitive with the XLS200.
Basically a down firing slot loaded refelx cabinet about 41cm*41cm*44cm and with a 200W amp. It's getting good comments on the French AV forums.
If any here know it, please chip in.
I tried both of these and decided the XLS is the clear winner. It performs much better and is considerably cheaper. What more could we possible ask for?
I have the MJ Acoustics Ref 100 and it's a great little sub that is very controlled fast and I am happywith it's performance......I have the Ref 100 on low level phono to phono connection Tannoymx10 hooked up to my centre speaker (as suggested by MJ acoustics site) via speaker cable
(high level) output to sub.....The results have been very good and I am amazed that my centre channel has come alive as described on the MJ Acoustics site...didn't even need a neutrik lead....
The Ref100 is great on both movies on low end and very fast at keeping up with music....the control it has means a very tight bass authoratative but never booming.....my room size is approx 4 metres by 3 metres....
my system is
Tannoy M3 FRONTS
Tannoy M3 REARS
Tannoy MR FRONT EFFECTS
Tannoy MC Centre
Tannoy MX10 SUB (hooked up to the centre via speaker cable)
MJ Acoustics ref 100 (hooked via amp via low level phono sub lead)
Yamaha AX2 Home Cinema Amplifier
Sony 905 MR dvd player
Panasonic 610 video
Ecosse reference Producer Digital coaxial Lead
Qed Sqart leads
Cabletalk 3.1 speaker lead
QED speaker lead
hope this helps
