    Hi all,

    I'm planning to set up a budget home cinema system soon. My choice:

    Toshiba SD-220E DVD
    Pioneer VSX-811 Receiver
    Mission M72 Speakers

    I'm looking for a sub around £100 preferably beech/cherry to compliment my setup above.

    cheers all :cool:

    I would double your budget to £200 really for a sub.

    Not gonna get a good quality sub for £100.

    Don't forget you'll need a big heap of cables- SCART, speaker, phono etc..

    Eltax are very poor quality, IMO.

    I would look around for a second hand decent sub, rather a new lesser sub. There is a powerbuy for VX-10 sub's but be aware the LF corner is 36hz.

    SCART-SCART RGB say £20
    Speaker cable, £1.00 per M to £2.50. 5 speaker's- rears will be much longer, obviously
    Subwoofer phono-phono cable, £20-£30
    Coaxial phono to phono for DVD to Amp audio, £20

    In lay speak, the LF corner is the frequency at which the sound volume begins to drop off dramatically compared to frequencies above it.

    I am selling one at the mo on the classified, in your price range if you are interested.

    As the others say, for a new sub you really need to be looking nearer £200

    Cant go wrong with QED cables. If you are buying you speakers from Uncle Eric he will be the best person to ask re speaker cable.

    I got a second hand REL Q-Bass from the classifieds here for £200, and it's a quality bit of kit.

    Petrolhead's PDR10 is probably the best you're gonna get for £100.

    Don't buy an Eltax.
