Considering a small system of either 5x Canton CD50 or 5x B&W M-1.

My budget has already grown so I'm looking at reasonable budget subs. Which of these would you recommend?

Rel Quake (2nd Hand)
Canton AS80
Wharfdale SW150
Mordaunt Short MS309
BK XLS200

Cheers,

Nigel

i own a quake, nice little sub, its more suited to providing a good quality bass rather than quantity tho, turn it up too loud and it does tend to lose control.......i'd say use in a room no bigger than 12x18 for best effect....

it does however still go very low considering its size....lower than most subs do at the price range.......

i dont know how it compares to the other ones u mentioned, but i give it a thumbs up.....can be had for around £300 now i think from Sevenoaks brand new, however you could probably get it second hand for under £200 quite easily....

oh, however, if could pay off a total of £650-700 over the next 9 months, pop in to sevenoaks and take up their 9months interest free credit and get the Strata 5.....heh....its a whole new world...lol
