    It appears my long serving paradigm ps1000 sub has deceased.
    It no longer powers up. Therefore I will be in the market for a new sub.

    Can anyone make some suggestions of a sub that will compare to the paradigms power preferrably in the £200 area.

    Thanks.

    How old is your PS1000 ... have you investigated etting it repaired ... even replacing it's amp will probably cost you less that £200.

    Where would i look to get it repaired. I removed the amp myself to check for bad solder joints and must say the board isnt the best quality I have seen.

    Several bad jonts which I redid to no avail. Cant see how its survived this long with all the vibration its had.

    Not sure what the paradigms power is - but the Velodyne VX-10 is £199 in the AV Forums power buys section. Read through all the posts in that section to see what the general opinion is on the Velos.

    Contact Richer Sounds re the Paradigm ... they are the UK importer. Or try your local friendly specialist HiFi shop or TV repair shop ... they may be able to test components, etc (assuming that it's out of warranty).
