    Hi guys,just seen one of these on flea-bay and just wondered what would be a fair price to pay.

    I'm aware they are few and far between but I cant seem to find a previous auction to get an idea.

    Anyone bought or sold one of these??

    cheers :confused:

    The sort of price these seem to go for on this forum would be £100-£140,remember there are versions 1,2,3 and I think they had a version 4 released this year.

    Excellent sub for the money second hand,I have one myself in one of my systems.

    Version 1 will be around 4/6 yrs old where a version 3 will be maybe 1-3 yrs old.Version 3 and 4 are updated and sound better than v1 & 2.

    I would pay no more than say £90-£100 for V1,£100-£110 for a V2 and £100-£140 for the V3 & 4.Carriage should cost no more than £15.

    Apologies if hi-jacking the thread

    Just bought one, but no manuals etc etc. In a dark situation how to wire-up this to my AV receiver (sub pre-out). I've tried to plug-in AV sub pre-out to Paradigm pre-input (RCA). Bit boomy and i can hear only extremely low bass but not real punch.

    Also my AV receiver has only one sub-out and Sub has inputs for left and right channels.

    Any help much appreciated

    Thanks

    You can plug the phono (RCA) lead from the receiver out to either the left or right phono in on the sub.

    The manual is very basic and tells you very little so don't worry you dont have it.

    Suniil what settings do you have your sub and receiver set at and what make/model is the receiver and what speakers are you using?

    Toshiba SD350 DVD player, Marantz SR5200 and Paradigm Ps1000 subwoofer.

    SD350-->digital coaxil-->Marantz Digital input-->subwoofer out-->phono-->PS1000

    All controls on sub i've kept in middle

    Regarding speakers i've not yet bought, but hookedup existing panasonic speakers came along with 1 box system (SCHT520)

    You need to set your receiver sub crossover output to 80hz(if it will go that low) and set the main speakers to small for starters.Set the receiver subwoofer output to 0db.

    Then turn the subs crossover knob to max (around 125hz)then everthing below 80hz that the receiver outputs will go to the sub.Sub gain (volume) should be around half way and sub phase knob turn to 0.

    This should be your starting point and you can tweak from there.
