    Equipment: Kef Q15's, C90 Centre, 60s Rears, Yamaha AV595 DD/DTS Panasonic DVD. My room is 14 x 11 and my budget is £300 (ish)

    Thanks for everyones help so far.
    I have a new dilemma - I have been offered a 2nd Kef PSW1000 for £90 or could get a new Paradigm for £150.
    Does anyone know the Kef sub - I can't find any reviews for it and the Paradigm reads very well
    Obviously the Kef would integrate better with my kit (or would it?)
    Please help
    Thanks

    Also my rears aren't full range, should I think about upgrading them too?
    If so what to?
    Budget for rears £200
    Thanks again

    JellyBoy,
    Both subs are ok for that kind of money.
    You would get a bigger improvement by ignoring your rears for the moment and changing the centre by nabbing another Q15 from somewhere.

    Voice coil matching isn't relevant for a subwoofer

    Thanks Chip

    I always thought the Q15's and the Q90 (or 95 -can't remember) worked well together,
    Whats your verdict?

    How about another pair of Q15´s at the rear?? Also worth trying a Q15 as a centre speaker, like Chip´s mentioned, this will give you EXACT matching to the front left & right speakers. A system with speakers that are all the same sounds great. The Q95 centre has never been regarded as one of the better Kef speakers and certainly not in the same league as the Q15, might be worth tracking down a Kef Model 100 centre speaker if you fancy changing, its superb.

    Full range speakers are really those that go down to 20hz despite some manufacturers claims of "Full Range Speaker". Most, however, dont go anywhere near that low. You generally get the best performance setting all speakers to small and routing all the bass to the sub.
