    I'm after a sub shortly.

    I have seen a rel q100e in excellent condition in a local shop.

    Is this roughly the right price for one of these subs?

    Also, i've done a search on here but there seems to be a bit of a mixed opinion as to how low these go. I've demoed a q150 before and it was no better than my main speakers which go surprisingly low for what they are (next to a wall). They shake the sofa slightly which was all the Q150 did and no more.
    Will the q100 show a better result??

    A REL Q150 should go much lower than Mission M72 speakers and if they didn't I would suggest that there was a connection or setup problem.

    The Q100 was an older and larger subwoofer that won quite a few awards in it's day and even now is still an excellent piece of kit that should have no problems in extending your bass response quite considerably.

    thanks for the reply Ian.

    I thought the 150 should go far lower as the missions are quoted as around only 55hz (although I do use the bass increase button on my Amp and set bass to 2 oclock position).

    I did set all up as supposed like rerouting all bass to sub and crossover @ 80hz but like you say it was prob setup error as I do not claim to be even slightly experienced in sub setup.

    So you don't think that £220 is to much for this sub??

    I'm not sure of current second hand prices as I haven't seen one sold here for a while. I am sure that if you can knock the odd £20 off to make it a round £200 it should be a good price as you can't buy a decent sub for £200 if new.

    I have just bought a R100 2 days ago from loot. 3 years old , asking for £175 and managed to settle for £145. It is brilliant both price and performance.

    Bargain! :smashin:

    I had one for about a year, and it was good value for almost double what you paid.

    Cheers,
    Liam
